Marcia Gay Harden Takes Over For Rosemarie DeWitt On The Newsroom

It seemed like a bit of a disaster when Rosemarie DeWitt exited her recurring role on Season 2 of The Newsroom. Just a few days after the sophomore show’s news was announced the role has been recast. Veteran actress Marcia Gay Harden will be taking on the role.

Rosemarie DeWitt Exits The Newsroom, Her Part Will Be Recast

The Newsroom is making a casting change for its second season. Mad Men's Rosemarie DeWitt was supposed to appear in the HBO news-focused drama series, however she's reportedly leaving the show. What's more, her scenes will be re-shot with a different actor, though there's no word on who that will be.

Girls, Breaking Bad, Nashville And Modern Family Among 2013 Writers Guild Of America Nominees

TV awards involving the actors may be the more glamorous of affairs, and those beautiful faces are the ones we associate best with some of our favorite TV characters and shows. But good scripted television does not exist without good writers. The nominees for the 2013 Writers Guild Awards are in and it looks like Writers Guild of America East and West are favoring cable shows, which is a familiar trend for TV award shows these days, and given the level of quality in the series coming from basic and premium cable these days...

The Newsroom Adds Grace Gummer For Season 2, Plot Details Revealed

Vague spoilers ahead! With the election over, you might figure we've heard enough about the presidential campaigns for one year. But come next year when HBO's The Newsroom returns, the series will tackle the subject of the election from a cable news perspective. In other news, Grace Gummer is joining the series in a recurring role.

Non-Debatable: 16 TV Characters Who'd Dominate As A Moderator

PBS' Jim Lehrer took some heat for his moderating techniques during last week's 2012 Presidential Debate. Perhaps ABC News' Martha Raddatz will do better at keeping things on track during tonight's Vice Presidential Debate. With that debate set to take place tonight and the next Presidential debate set to take place next week, we got to thinking about some TV characters who might make good moderators.

Ratings Up For True Blood And The Newsroom's Finales

Between encore airings and HBO's streaming video service HBO Go, evaluating the success of the ratings is tricky business. Those who aren't tuning in for the original airing may be planning to catch the episode on HBO Go, HBO on Demand or one of the many encore airings. But it's understandable that many fans of the pay-cables original series wouldn't want to wait, when it comes to a season premiere or finale, which could explain the ratings increase for The Newsroom's season finale, which aired last night.

The Newsroom Finale Watch: Episode 10, The Greater Fool

And that, my friends, is how you do a season finale, with all plotlines (save one) tied up or moved on to their next natural place of progression before saying goodbye for a good ten months until season two. We bounce back and forth between Will giving a fiery condemnation of the Tea Party and events that started eleven days earlier. In the flashback, we learn that Will got himself hospitalized...

The Newsroom Watch: Episode 9, The Blackout, Part 2: Mock Debate

I’m conflicted, readers. I dearly love this show, moment to moment. But in standing by the fridge, reaching for a refreshing beverage half an hour later, I find myself pulling at threads and seeing some things unravel. We’re going to get to that.

television
The Newsroom Watch: Episode 8, The Blackout, Part 1: Tragedy Porn

Last night's episode delivered on so many levels. And hey, welcome to the big dance, MacKenzie. I really like you so much more when you're portrayed as an actual thinking, super-competent person as in this episode, instead of a little girl who gets pen on her face. Sorkin and his team showed up for the party last night, as we hit the beginning of the endgame for Season 1.

television
The Newsroom Watch: Episode 7, 5/1

The Newsroom hinges upon our memories of major news events of the last two years; last night's episode takes perhaps the biggest of them all--the announcement of the killing of Osama Bin Laden--and builds a surprisingly funny and touching evening of television out of it.

television
The Newsroom Watch: Episode 6, Bullies

We take a backseat from the broad themes of the show this week and don't even touch on the Will-versus-Leona plot. Instead, we get a character piece about Will, with some wonderful little deconstructive bits. Sorkin does this occasionally, with an entire episode dedicated to the inner workings of a single character. He's sort of perfected that trick with this go-round, and gives us a fascinating look inside Will while also moving a number of subplots forward.

television
The Newsroom Watch: Episode 5 - Amen

The big surprise for me with last night's episode is that, after last week's nailbiting final ten minutes and the escalating plot in Egypt, I expected an ending and an entire plotline that was a lot less joyful. But The Newsroom's fifth episode ended up being a surprisingly positive little romp.

The Newsroom Reportedly Cuts Most Of Its Writers For Season 2

Aaron Sorkin's new HBO drama series The Newsroom is just a few episodes into its first season, and word is, there are already some pretty major shakeups happening with regards to the writers room. Recent reports are stating that most of the writers have been let go for the series' second season.

television
The Newsroom Watch: Episode 4 - I'll Try to Fix You

I'd like to announce that Aaron Sorkin is back on his game. This episode ranks right up there with the most glorious moments of The West Wing, and the last ten minutes are an example of the best television can be. I'm so thankful for this episode. Let's begin

The Newsroom Preview: Episode 4 - I'll Try To Fix You

Like any workplace drama series, mixing business with pleasure seems to be a recurring thing on HBO's new drama The Newsroom. Based on the preview video for next week's episode, there's going to be a lot more of that going around as Will gets himself into some trouble and Maggie's roommate enters the picture as a possible fix-up for Jim.

television
The Newsroom Watch: Episode 3 - 112th Congress

If this show were a ten-hour movie, this would be the montage sequence, as we jump forward six months with a series of good, sometimes breathtaking short scenes, culminating on Election Night 2010. The whole thing is framed around a flashforward/flashback framing sequence as Charlie has to answer to the financial powers that be for Will's new choice to tell the news instead of driving the ratings...and we finally, finally get a taste of what Jane Fonda's Leona Lansing really can do, as all sorts of stories move forward during the jolting, brilliant time jumping.

television
The Newsroom Preview: Episode 3 - The 112th Congress

This Sunday night's episode of The Newsroom has Aaron Sorkin sharking a writing credit with Gideon Yago, whose name may be most recognizable to those who watched MTV News somewhat regularly during the last decade or so. It's also worth noting that Greg Mottola, who directed the pilot episode, has returned to direct "The 112th Congress," which according to the clip we have to show you, will address a bombing attempt on U.S. soil a couple of years back.
