Hopefully this will be more Sports Night and West Wing (pre-Sorkin's departure), less Studio 60.

I'll watch it if the reviews are good, but the idea for the beginning is lifted directly from Studio 60.

Sorkin certainly could have picked a worse film to crib from throughout his entire career.

Right now Girls & Veep look better SOLELY because of Olivia Munn.

Really? Has anyone ever seen her in a dramatic role? Maybe she's good.

It's a Sorkin show, you should expect nothing but a vision of how things should look and how people should talk/act in a perfect political world.

Olivia Munn... oy. Surely there were other young, attractive actresses available for the role who could, you know, actually act.

But otherwise, I'm down for some of Sorkin's form of self-righteous indignation.

After watching both seasons of Sports Night on Netflix and loving The Social Network, I'm definitely going to watch this.

Also, from that preview Jeff Daniels' office and the overall set-up of the news room offices look almost exactly like the Sports Night sets.
