The Newsroom

A behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor, his new executive producer, the newsroom staff, and their boss, the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements.

The final season of The Newsroom, which will air this fall on HBO, is currently filming its last 6 episodes, instead of the usual 10-episode order (season 2 was 9 episodes because of reshoots on the first 3 episodes).
Thus the show's final tally will be 25 episodes - unless Sorkin decides he wants to go for another round, in which case there wouldn't be any contract problems with the cast.

Mr. Sorkin's "The Newsroom" provided a window into political and cultrual hypocrisy; its insights offered the uninformed a reality check. The program inspired a sea change to viewpoints, and offered a paradigm shift to broadcast television. It is missed and a return would be most welcome.

I read somewhere that "The Newsroom" was the most popular US TV show in China. Seems they were mesmerized by Will's response to the "What makes America so great" question ... because what Jeff Daniel's character said about America and our government was something that simply could *NOT* be said in China. Very unhappy to find that this quality show is coming to an end. Thank you, Mr. Sorkin.

The best show on TV. To not continue it would be a shame. Great acting and believable cast. Perhaps HBO feels media pressure for showing a news show with character and honesty.

All I ever hear is the negatives about this show. Now let me say that to me, the public, I feel the show goes as far as it may dare. I like the writing. I like the cast. I'm sorry Charlie(Sam Waterston) character has been ended. I would like to see a show which gives journalism a much more positive rep be kept on the air, and to expand what journalism should be rather than the sell-outs of real life. Heck, Sorkin could even attack them for good TV. There is plenty of story there to be written if they would.

Aaron Sorkin doesn't create memorable characters. He introduces viewers to people we'd want as our neighbors, our friends, our coworkers, our lovers. Mr. Sorkin's shows feature dialogue that reveals the plot - almost like a striptease - just a little bit at a time, but in such a quotable fashion that every show leaves the viewer both satisfied and still begging for more. Why would he end the best show since WEST WING?? The man is a genius; he knows not to kill a winner tip the decade ends.

Super entertaining, super smart; the fast, sharp dialog and wit with a precision edge is not only educational, it contributes a richer context for our entertainment. The viewing pleasure of this rare 'intelligent' program will be missed.
