Aaron Sorkin Apologizes to Journalists for The Newsroom

While the final season 3 of HBO’s Newsroom is planned for later this year we haven’t heard a whole lot from the cast or Aaron Sorkin lately.  At the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday he spoke out about his controversial series saying and wanted to clear the air about at least one aspect of the show: “I’m going to let you all stand in for everyone in the world, if you don’t mind. I think you and I got off on the wrong foot with The Newsroom and I apologize and I’d like to start over,” Sorkin told the audience after interviewer (and former President Obama speech writer)...

The Newsroom Season 3 Could Begin Filming in March

This month we were a bit worried about The Newsroom season 3 when the HBO year-ender trailer failed to tout the existence of a 2014 season return to ACN.  But every time we hear from award-winning lead actor, Jeff Daniels he insists that the show is on!  We’ve reached out to HBO for comment on a third season of The Newsroom and we’ve been told that the network itself is excited for a new season but that scheduling is still being worked out.  But earlier this month Jeff Daniels again commented on the future of The Newsroom getting quoted in an interview thusly:   As for...

Charlie Skinner Drops Benghazi Bombshell on Stephen Colbert

Charlie Skinner Drops Benghazi Bombshell on Stephen Colbert

If you caught the last season of The Newsroom you’ll know that the Atlantis Cable News team reported on a fake story that had to be redacted. Well sometimes truth and fiction collide as something quite similar happened recently over the Benghazi incident. But Colbert wanted to get to the bottom of it so he brought in one of Television News’s finest. Here’s what happened on the Colbert Report last night: Amen, Charlie Skinner! You tell ‘em! As always we anxiously await more snark from Mr. Sam Waterston next season. The Newsroom Season 3 is supposedly confirmed and...

The Newsroom was Piers Morgan’s ‘Trigger Point’

The Newsroom was Piers Morgan’s ‘Trigger Point’

It’s often said that art imitates real life. But in the case of CNN’s Piers Morgan and The Newsroom’s Will McAvoy it seems that reality is taking notes from Aaron Sorkin’s HBO project. In an interview with The Guardian Mr. Morgan said: “Watching the first episode of Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom was the trigger point. Jeff Daniels’ character is bored in his job, ticking time, hasn’t got a clear voice, then he suddenly explodes about the state of America, and it transforms his show. “I said to my producer it was really interesting because you can see the...

THE NEWSROOM Season 2 Ratings Down

THE NEWSROOM Season 2 Ratings Down

This post is not meant to negate the good news of Jeff Daniels’ Emmy win for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series nor is it meant to add great value to the ratings numbers contained herein. The intent is to mainly show the up and down struggle THE NEWSROOM has had since its debut. Since HBO is not bound by the ratings numbers, as shows on the broadcast networks are, we here at HBOWatch don’t hold much credence to them either, but they can serve as a good barometer of an audience’s acceptance of the show. The numbers state that the Season Two Finale had  -      1.7 million watching the...

Newsroom Season 2 Finale: Election Night Pt II

Newsroom Season 2 Finale: Election Night Pt II

For all the momentum they had going through that finale, they had to ruin it all by having them smoke cigars in the control room?! I’m not even completely sure they can’t do that but when you stop to think about what they’re doing you get thrown completely out of the immersion, which is a total mood killer. Thankfully they picked a good song to play over it all. So, to summarize. Will got over himself. Charlie got over himself. Reese found himself on the right side of an argument. Maggie is going to confront her demons, but first she has to confront her friends. Jim wants...

The Newsroom: “Red Team III”

The Newsroom: “Red Team III”

The house of cards comes crashing down despite an obsessed builder cheating the architecture with tape and nails keeping the design sturdy yet ultimately sacrificing its all important integrity. In so doing, this impatient man not only degrades what he so impassionedly designed, he’s also removed what crucial components of the house around him keep the structure solid putting everyone at risk. What’s worse is he did a sloppy job hiding it. So when everything finally began to chip away the process wasn’t a slow cascade of dominoes, it was an implosion. Stupid Jerry. I loved this...

The Newsroom S2E6: One Step Too Many

The Newsroom S2E6:  One Step Too Many

The edge of the envelope is a scary place to be. On the one side, you’re safe and secure and you have everything you need, but just over the edge lies everything you want, and we all know there’s a big difference between the two. The questions is: When stepping into the Land Of Want, how far can you safely push the envelope? There’s one key scene in this episode that tackles this question for everyone but if you’re not paying attention you’ll miss the message. Here’s a tip: It’s a conversation between Sloan and Will, but that’s all I’m...

‘The Newsroom’ S2 / E5 – ‘News Night with Will McAvoy’

‘The Newsroom’ S2 / E5 – ‘News Night with Will McAvoy’

‘The Newsroom’ switched things up this past Sunday (8/11), delivering a well contained episode that was shot in relative real time. ‘News Night with Will McAvoy’ doesn’t jump from location to location and doesn’t obsess over a single story, we stick to one location, the ACN Newsroom, and receive a combination of main plot conflict and relevant character building moments. Sorkin’s target is pretty clear this episode – destroy the people who strive for fame by standing on the necks of famous people. Sloan’s exposed nude photos, a Rutgers...
