The Newsroom, Season 1HD18+

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Is it possible to produce a good TV news show and make it popular at the same time? That's the question facing volatile cable-news anchor Will McAvoy and the ideological staff that has just been foisted upon him in Season 1 of this HBO drama series from Aaron Sorkin ('The Social Network'). Overcoming a tumultuous first day together, the acerbic ACN Network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), new executive producer MacKenzie (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, and others), and news-division boss Charlie (Sam Waterston) set out on a patriotic if quixotic mission to 'do the news well' in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their own personal entanglements.

Customer Reviews

Groundbreaking TV series! My review is of the show, not the availability of it.

This is by far the best thing i've seen on TV in the last 15 years... easily. I was fortunate enough to catch each episode on TV last year and it actually altered me in a profound way. From the first episode this show threw my highly developed state of ennui out the window and smacked the crap out of my political apathy. It galvanized me into doing some REAL thinking about world events and humanity in general - the kind of thinking where we challenge ourselves to see new perspectives and yet have the bravery to revisit old ideals. On top of it all, it's highly entertaining. It has the brilliant writing you would expect and excellent character structure but is also at times laugh-out-loud, slap-your-knee funny.

Clever, Enjoyable

One of the best written shows currently on television. It has the same profoundness that Boston Legal did when it was on the air. At the same time treating the audience with intelligence not like reality show idiots.

Excellent Show

An outstanding season and well worth watching. Not quite the depth of character development, and believability as The West Wing. Too bad iTunes didn't offer this 'live-time' as is aired like other shows.
