    HBO Cleaning House? The 3rd Season of 'The Newsroom' Will Be The Last

    Things I Learned at HBO's Emmy Party, from Sorkin's 'Newsroom' Status to Soderbergh's 'Glue'

    HBO knows how to throw a good bash, and their annual Emmy after-party at the Pacific Design Center was a huge improvement on the sad and gloomy death-obsessed 65th Emmy Awards, which nonetheless drew the largest audience in eight years. Who are these mythical TV Academy voters who misled most of th...

    'Breaking Bad,' 'House Of Cards' & 'Behind The Candelabra' Among Big Emmy Winners

    Last night TV's finest -- which these days tends to include some of movie's finest too -- gathered for the Emmy Awards, while the the rest of us stayed glued to "Breaking Bad" and to some extent, the series finale of "Dexter." Either way, both options were better than that dubstep dance routine to "...

    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...

    And since Daniels plays Will McAvoy on "The Newsroom," and Will McAvoy is the shining example of journalistic integrity in a media landscape gone wild (as well as the lead character on the show), we're going to take him at his word.

    Recap: 'The Newsroom,' Season 2, Episode 3 'Willie Pete'

    Occupy Wall Street! Operation Genoa! Uganda! Mitt Romney! Troy Davis! Netflix splitting into two companies! (Yep, a passing reference was made to that quickly aborted blunder). "The Newsroom" has had a lot going on across the first two episodes, so much so that Aaron Sorkin felt compelled to rewrite...

    Recap: 'The Newsroom' Season 2, Episode 2 'The Genoa Tip'

    If last week's premiere was the small pebble, rolling down the mountain of the second season of "The Newsroom," you can start seeing the eventual massive snowball forming with the second episode. This new approach from Aaron Sorkin, with one large news story anchoring the narrative, is an interestin...

    Recap: 'The Newsroom' Season 2 Episode 1, 'The First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All The Lawyers'

    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. It’s a tamed beast, no longer the unicorn of absurdity it once was. It's less of a disappointment, but mainly because we kn...
