Postmortem:The Newsroom Star Breaks Down That Shocking Death

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Sunday's penultimate episode of The Newsroom. Read at your own risk.]

The Newsroom usually milks its drama from the real-life news stories the show's fictional characters are covering. But on Sunday's penultimate episode, the drama hit much closer to home.

The episode — which jumps ahead 52 days since Will (Jeff Daniels) and Mackenzie (Emily Mortimer) tied the knot and Will went to jail for failing to reveal the name of his source — shows just how much the vibe at ACN has changed since Lucas Pruitt (guest star B.J. Novak) took ownership....read more

Did The Newsroom Save Its Best Season for Last?

Given the anticipatory hype that preceded the 2012 debut of HBO's The Newsroom, it would have been hard to predict that the Aaron Sorkindrama would end the way it is — with a truncated third and final season that begins Sunday.

After two up-and-down years — the first season was met with decidedly harsh reviews, while the second was received more warmly despite some persisting flaws —and a very tidy Season 2 finale, it seemed Sorkin might be ready to just move on to something else. But after negotiating with HBO and bringing The Office's Paul Lieberstein on board, Sorkin & Co. decided they weren't quite finished...read more

Critic's Notebook: The Emmy Nominations

No one expects the Emmy nominations to please everybody — there's simply too much TV these days, including on unconventional platforms like Netflix, and there are always going to be shows and performers that won't make the cut, however deserving. But even when the Emmy voters get something right, like adding HBO's freshman hoot Silicon Valley to the best-comedy contenders, we still find ourselves griping over where they stumbled, nowhere more glaringly than in the drama-series race. (For a list of nominees in the major categories, go here.)

The First Trailer for Dumb and Dumber To Is Exactly What You'd Expect

Some things really never change.

The first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To is every bit as crass, absurd and distasteful as the original. But isn't that what we want?

Surprising celebrity roommates

Taking nostalgia to the extreme, Harry and Lloyd haven't changed one bit since we last saw them 20 years ago. Except for the fact that Harry discovers he has a long-lost daughter, which is really just an excuse for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to take their gross-out antics on the road again.

Aaron Sorkin Apologizes for The Newsroom: "I'd Like to Start Over"

Aaron Sorkin says he'd like to apologize to people who may have misinterpreted his intentions with his HBO series The Newsroom.

"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 at a Tribeca Film Festival event Monday, referencing the criticism over his choice to set the show in the recent past. "I think that there's been a terrible misunderstanding. ... I wasn't trying to and I'm not capable of teaching a professional journalist a lesson. That wasn't my intent and it's never my intent to teach you a lesson or try to persuade you or anything."
