Scripted by Jeffrey W. Ruggles, The Last Weekend in May tells the story of Paul and Leah, two people caught in the throes of an extramarital affair. Knowing that the situation is untenable, they decide to rent a house and turn their
Just look at this past week. People whined about NBC's live "Peter Pan." Some whined because it wasn't that great, while those who were determined to hate-watch it whined because it wasn't that terrible.
Viewers also whined about this week's "Sons of Anarchy" series finale -- did Jax's final act make sense? Did it provide a satisfying catharsis after seven long seasons? Or was it alternately gripping and frustrating, like the rest of the series had been?
People complained about the campus-rape episode on "Newsroom," the one that showrunner Aaron Sorkin called his finest episode yet. Given this week's controversy over the now in-dispute Rolling Stone article about an alleged rape victim at the University of Virginia, Sunday's "Newsroom" couldn't have been timelier, but a

Synopsis: When the team attends the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, Mac makes an unexpected acquaintance and Will gets a surprise.
‘Main Justice’ kicks off where we left the last outing with the FBI raiding the Acn offices as they search for Neal (Dev Patel) and evidence regarding the illegally sourced government information and secret contact. As Will (Jeff Daniels) stays silent, Charlie’s (Sam Waterston) team try to start up the Newsroom as they pretend to ‘go live’ on the raid and this temporarily calls off the search. There’s a few different moods being thrown around, especially as the chief FBI Agent is Molly Levy (Mary McCormack), an old friend of MacKenzie’s (Emily Mortimer) and she’s not very happy about what’s occurring. In terms of calling the FBI’s bluff, it seems unusual for The Newsroom

Synopsis: While Rebecca must once again defend Acn during a possible lawsuit, Will tries to protect Neal from the aftermath of the Dod leak; Charlie and Leona deal with a hostile takeover; Sloan worries about Don’s involvement with insider information.
At the conclusion of ‘Boston’, Sloane (Olivia Munn) discovered that Acn were in the middle of a hostile takeover and Reece (Chris Messina) was completely unaware. They also discovered that Reece’s family members ‘the twins’ were in town. ‘Run’ begins with is the realisation that the business is in an unexpected crisis and these ‘twins’ are the ones trying to buy it. Here we meet Blair Lansing (Kat Dennings) and Randy Lansing (Chris Smith), new additions to the world of The Newsroom and a pretty dislikeable pair at that – as they’re supposed to be.
It’s also a huge episode in
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Don Keefer passed away of natural causes on September 7th. In the 1961 “It’s a Good Life” episode of The Twilight Zone, Don played Dan Hollis, a man celebrating his birthday with his wife, a few friends, and the six-year-old mind-reading malevolent mutant, Anthony Fremont. Don turned in a powerful performance, standing up to the young telepathic murderer and challenging his friends to put an end to the madness. His desperate speech was a spine-tingler and helped
There’s insurmountable coverage these days by supposed news journalism that usually ends up being nothing more than extended gossip, alongside unconsidered guess work. If you care about the world we live in, and keep up-to-date with your current affairs then The Newsroom brought back those hopes that such organisations once led with honesty and then -somehow – it might come back one day in Western society.
Of course, Sorkin had the advantage of reinventing old news coverage – by the series being set in the past
HBO finally confirmed Monday (Jan. 13) what Emmy winner Jeff Daniels signaled in a tweet several months ago: The Aaron Sorkin-created TV-news drama "The Newsroom" will get a third season, though it also will be the final one. It's expected to begin its run this fall.
Cast members clearly were hoping for the renewal. "This is rich ground, and there's a lot of stuff to get into," co-star Sam Waterston -- alias Acn president Charlie Skinner -- told Zap2it earlier. "These circumstances are rare, so I hope and long for a third season."
Thomas Sadoski, who plays news producer Don Keefer, also indicated to Zap2it he was anticipating the pickup from HBO: "To every question I've asked of them [about being renewed], they've said, 'Yes.'"
A multiple Emmy winner for "The West Wing" and an Oscar winner for "The Social Network,

Okay. You've been warned.
There was so much angst going into this episode. Almost everyone on the staff was begging to be fired, literally. They'd all but given up on their future at Acn... but then Jane, an anchor in the DC office gunning for Will's job, took a jab at MacKenzie in this The Newsroom quote…
We'll try not to drop Sarin gas on anyone while we do it. | permalink
Thank you, Jane ,for being such a b*tch because that mean girl moment seemed to turn the tide from defeatism to determination. And it wasn't just about the job.
Will and Mac. Talk about a roller coaster ride.
With relationships brewing in the Acn office on The Newsroom, the staff were trying to focus on the 2012 election, but were distracted by Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels), Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston) and MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) trying to resign — leaving the whole senior staff ready to also leave the company.
To start, I’ve got to say that after a season of ups and downs and a great deal of dialogue, this was by far the best episode I’ve seen yet — and one of the best finales ever.
Will, Mac & Charlie Debate Resignation
Starting off the episode, we learn that Will, Charlie and Mac will be able to resign like they want — since Acn president, Leona Lansing (Jane Fonda) was
Current Emmy nominee Jeff Daniels recently tweeted that the show was "coming back," and Thomas Sadoski -- who plays Atlantis Cable News producer Don Keefer -- is backing that up in advance of the Aaron Sorkin-created drama's Season 2 finale Sunday (Sept. 15).
"My understanding is that we're doing a third season," Sadoski tells Zap2it. "That's what I've been told. I don't know what the holdup is on their end [in announcing it], but to every question I've asked of them, they've said, 'Yes.'"
In this weekend's wrap-up to the show's current year, set on Election Night 2012, Don remains furious over lawsuits filed against Acn by a producer fired over the Operation Genoa controversy.
"I don't know that I have specific hopes and dreams for the character," Sadoski says.
