I'm just about to watch this, but based on what I have seen and heard all over, I'm scared to. Damn, I really wanted to like this.

Not everybody hates it. Just most. Maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones. In all honesty, it's not that it's horrible, it just seems very amateurish, and I think that surprises people when you look at the talent on hand. And the fact that it's badly written is probably the most surprising. It just is very cliched and the dialogue sounds like a high school play.

Kara, I'm joining you.

Screw the naysayers. It's not The West Wing, but I thought it was pretty good. I enjoyed it and didn't think the writing was as terrible as some have said. It's not the Sorkin of WW or even The Social Network, but you can't compare to some of his greatest works. I'm looking forward to next week and I thought Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterston were awesome.

I love both actors but I thought the Sam Waterston character acted like there was something wrong with his brain.

What's interesting is that on the critic site metacritic, which is kind of like rottentomatoes, The Newsroom got a 57 out of 100 by critics, which ranked only 23rd for new shows. It will be interesting to see how it all turns out for HBO because they really have A LOT riding on it. But Sorkin is like Tarantino in that a lot of his fans love his style and will soak up anything he writes. But the ratings will have to be there all season because this is going to be a really, really expensive show.

Ratings just came in and they had 2.1 million. To be honest I thought it would be more. The first Game of Thrones did 2.2 million then went up a lot in season 2, and Boardwalk Empire did 4.8 million in it's first show. But even more scary for HBO is that the lead in, True Blood, had 4.7 million. That's some drop!!

Ok well I just watched it and really enjoyed it, so much so that I will probably have HBO by the next airing.
