Seasons

The Newsroom: Season 3
76%
Critics Consensus: With an energetic new arc and deeper character development, The Newsroom finds itself rejuvenated in its third season -- even if it still occasionally serves as a soapbox for creator Aaron Sorkin.

2014, HBO, 6 episodes

69%
Critics Consensus: Thanks to focused storytelling and a more restrained tone, The Newsroom finds surer footing in its second season, even if it still occasionally succumbs to Aaron Sorkin's most indulgent whims.

2013, HBO, 9 episodes

46%
Critics Consensus: Though it sports good intentions and benefits from moments of stellar dialogue and a talented cast, The Newsroom may feel too preachy, self satisfied, and cynical to appeal to a wide range of viewers.
