    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'

    'Dumb And Dumber To' Finds A Home At Universal

    It’s been quite some time since we last saw Harry and Lloyd. Yes, there was that abysmal “Dumb and Dumberer” prequel and there was even a Saturday morning cartoon series which was terrible in its own way, but forgivable from a nostalgic point of view.

    'The Newsroom' Episode 9 Review and Recap: 'The Blackout Part 2' -- Whither the Mock Debate?

    Sunday's all-new episode of "The Newsroom" was a moderate letdown from last week's strong episode, with promises of a mock debate barely materializing. But Sloan, the best thing about the Sorkin-scripted show, did get in a great one-liner: "Me? FUCK you."
