Started watching the newsroom, mostly because I am entranced by Olivia Munn, but also because Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimerr are solid actors. The show is pretty interesting, given that it's basically a retelling of news events from the past. The Osama Bin Laden one, for example, was fairly entertaining and very interesting in regards to how a news center might act regarding a moment like that ( plus Jeff Daniels character was high out of his mind, hilarious). It's worth looking into a bit, even if it means turning a game off an hour early.
Also of note, started watching Alphas again. David Straitharn is a terrific actor, always sells his role like a champ, but the adhd kid, charcter's name is Gary Bell, makes that show. I laugh at his antics because they're funny, but he is so much more. Also, the girl who plays Nina is hot...she can push me all she likes.
