Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cares!
So I had a Newsroom marathon yesterday. All caught up. I am probably the only person watching this. It's a good show filled with some nice performances but despite it's best attempts it is pretty much fluff and moondust. Sorkin tries too hard to make it a relevant commentary on news reporting, politics and the general state of things while draping it all in relationship drama. Jeff Daniels and a very underrated Emily Mortimer do some real nice heavy lifting but there is a sense of around and around we go with all the love affair subplots. Meryl Streep's daughter is a nice addition in season 2 but I miss Terry Crews' security liason(no explanation given as to why he just has disappeared). There are some good moments, and I enjoy the show, but it's not an urgent watch. I do not know what the numbers are, but I wouldn't be surprised if HBO closes this out at the end of this season.
I've been watching since day 1 and it's one of my favorite shows.

HBO's 'The Newsroom' Renewed For Season 3, Jeff Daniels Says - Deadline.com
Aaron Sorkin‘s cable news network drama series The Newsroom has been renewed for a third season by HBO, its star Jeff Daniels tweeted tonight. “It’s official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3“, the Emmy nominee wrote. No response from HBO yet, but sources confirm that The Newsroom, now wrapping Season 2, indeed has been picked up.
The news is not a surprise. HBO programming chief Michael Lombardo indicated at TCA in July that there will be a third season of The Newsroom. “The odds are excellent – we’re enormously happy with the show,” he said. “Conversations with Aaron Sorkin are all about scheduling as he he has other commitments. If we can figure the scheduling, I will be shocked if you would not be hearing about a renewal soon. The numbers this season are surpassing last season.”

I recently got caught up w/season 2 and 3...what an unpleasant show really. I know it's supposed to be, but they really test your tolerance levels...and my tolerance is higher than most.
