Only 6 episodes 🙁 This show is ending way too early, at least for me. I hope Jane Fonda has another meaty tape (but more screentime).August 24, 2014 at 8:46 pm #329421
Ew that’s crappy. This show deserves more than 6 episodes!August 24, 2014 at 8:48 pm #329422

Here is some more infoAugust 25, 2014 at 6:26 am #329424
6 episodes? That’s funny and sad at the same time.August 25, 2014 at 7:27 am #329425
The quality really plummeted in season 2 except for a few high spots. Hence, the reduction in the episode order for season 3.August 25, 2014 at 9:32 am #329426
I thought ‘Season 2 was as strong as Season 1. I really don’t understand the flack this show getsOctober 3, 2014 at 9:39 am #329429
BJ Novak from The Office revealed this morning on The View that he will be guest staringOctober 3, 2014 at 3:48 pm #329431
Trailer looked great! So unbeliably sad this show is ending!! the first season was amazing but the second season kinda fell apart…hopefully this season will be better. Very interested to see Kat Dennings in this especially if she’s not her usual funny gal and does something a little different. Also low on Jim and Maggie which is okay because that was so weird last season…but i love Olivia Munn and hope she has a standout this year!November 8, 2014 at 10:20 pm #329432
Aaron Sorkin: I’m Done With TV After ‘The Newsroom’
2:39 PM PST 11/8/2014 by Ryan Gajewski
“I’ve had much more failure, as traditionally measured, than success in television”
Aaron Sorkin has had his fill of writing for television.
The West Wing creator, whose series The Newsroom begins its third and final season Sunday on HBO, told the Los Angeles Times that he doesn’t expect to work on another show after this one.
In May, just before penning the series’ final episodes, he talked about being ready to move on from the medium. “I know the whole ‘Never say never’ stuff,” said Sorkin, who won the Oscar for scripting The Social Network and has also written for the stage. “But I’m pretty certain I’m about to write my last three episodes of television.”
When asked whether he was really done with TV for good, he said, “Yeah,” before clarifying: “I’ve loved every minute I’ve spent in television. And I’ve had much more failure, as traditionally measured, than success in television. I’ve done four shows, and only one of them was the West Wing.”
Sorkin told the Times that he was unsure after Newsroom‘s second season of whether it should return for a third. Once he had decided on a storyline for the new season, he asked HBO to make it the show’s final run.
Sorkin, whose Steve Jobs film recently lost Christian Bale as its lead, has also created ABC’s Sports Night, which lasted two seasons, and NBC’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, which got the hook after one season.November 9, 2014 at 7:57 am #329433
Episode 3.1: Boston
Written by Aaron Sorkin; directed by Anthony Hemingway
In the wake of the Genoa fiasco, Will, Mac and the “News Night” team decide to err on the side of caution in reporting a major breaking story, which may enhance credibility, if not ratings. Neal faces a slippery slope when he’s contacted by an anonymous source in possession of stolen government documents revealing how false press stories planted in newspapers spawned fatal riots in Kundu. Sloan looks to solve a takeover puzzle; Maggie is forced to pinch-hit for Elliot in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings.
