“Newsroom” is big news. Everybody’s talking about Aaron Sorkin’s new drama, which premiered Sunday night on HBO. And the comments, from critics and viewers alike, range from “terrific” to “terrible.” JoyHog’s take: nothing special, too much high-horse sermonizing, characters we’ve seen before. “SportsNight” was better.
Flavorwire rounded up some negative critics comments. Warning: critics who watched the first four episodes said the pilot was the best of the bunch.
If you missed “Newsroom, and don’t have HBO, Sunday’s episode is free on HBO’s YouTube channel.
