    As we wait for official word as to whether or not "The Newsroom" will be back for a third season (star Jeff Daniels' insistence doesn't count), Emily Mortimer, who plays Will McAvoy's producer and much-abused love interest MacKenzie McHale, has found herself another perch at HBO.

    Recap: Aaron Sorkin Finally Gets It Right With The Season 2 Finale Of 'The Newsroom'

    Before diving in, a bit of a disclaimer and/or explanation is in order. Thanks to TIFF taking me away from the television for a couple of weeks, followed by some bungling couriers and concluding in massive fatigue upon returning from Toronto, "The Newsroom" slipped off the immediate radar. And a sho...

    After a rocky first season, both compelling and cringe-worthy in equal doses, and sometimes all at the same time, Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" is back for a second season and it has undergone some significant retooling. The writers' room was given a shakeup, and even as production got underway, Sor...

    'The Newsroom' Season 2 Promises Less and Delivers It

    The season-spanning story is designed to seem ambitious, but this Newsroom feels like a scaled-down show; there's less egregious overreach, but nothing's come in to replace it.

    "The Newsroom" closed out its first season this past Sunday the way it began, with an episode -- "The Greater Fool" -- that brought back series premiere director Greg Mottola and showed off the precise mix of fiery idealism, incontestible santimoniousness and maddening ...

    THE NEWSROOM RECAP 5: AMEN

    It’s amazing that a man, and the show that celebrates him, can recognize any news when they spot it, given how much time Will and "The Newsroom" spend in a self-regarding set of funhouse mirrors that seem to reflect only the most flattering version of Will back to him.
