Tv Season Info

The frenetic workplace of a cable-sports network is the setting for this alternately witty and poignant sitcom revolving around two cocky anchors and their neurotic producer. Created by Aaron Sorkin (`The West Wing'), the series was smartly cast and executed, and it deserved a better fate. The 1998 pilot won an Emmy for director Thomas Schlamme.

Critic Reviews for Sports Night: Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

While season two certainly had its good points, it was much more uneven than season one.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The setup and subsequent evolution of the story lines throughout season two is masterfully done. While there is some regret that we never get the full pay off due to Sports Night's untimely demise, the characters are so enduring...

For as good as the first season is, the second season is far better.

November 6, 2015 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

A lightning-quick, smart look at a group of people struggling with existential crises, emotional issues and each other, all in the name of a common cause.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The series' zippy dialogue is its own joy, but there's tremendous emotional depth, political agitation and some gleeful romantic arcs.

The battle between Sports Night at its best and worst will be something to watch over the next couple of weeks.
