The Newsroom, Season 1HDTV-MAClosed Captioning

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

Pretentious Bore

Every character, regardless of age and social background, sounds exactly like every other character, and virtually every scene is about verbal one-upmanship. Sorry, but real people don't talk this way. The 78 RPM pacing is maddening. "Scandal" has fast-paced scenes but at least they're occasionally varied with a slower, more nuanced take on things. As for story lines -- are there any? This show is like being trapped in a room with a sanctimonious rapper on speed.

liberal comments

People saying this is a liberals dream show. If you watch farther than the first two episodes you realize that he's a conservative crashing through the heart of our nations mistakes.

Sorkin (almost) at his best

While not quite as good as The West Wing, The Newsroom features great writing, acting and directing. Though some of the dialogue repeats (especially people's repeating disbelieve questions), this show is well worth the time watching it.
It seems rather left wing liberal, than again so am I :)
