More about The Newsroom: ratings

HBO TV show The Newsroom

The Newsroom

Created by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), this TV series takes a behind-the-scenes look at the people who put together a nightly cable-news show on the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) channel. The unapologetically old-school president of the news division is Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterson), a professional who learned at the feet of the legendary newsmen. The anchor and managing editor of News Night is Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels), a moderate Republican whose success is largely the result of never offending anyone. He's in a lot of pain and that manifests itself in a gruff exterior when he's off camera. His world is turned upside down when Mackenzie McHale, his new executive producer, re-enters his life.
