The Newsroom’s New Trailer: Jeff Daniels 2.0

Wait, did we know Jeff Daniels's fictitious show in The Newsroom is called News Night? Now Aaron Sorkin's new HBO series really is Sports Night! But the new trailer gives us a variety of footage and an entirely different, joke-laden tone, all set to some species of "gettin' shit done, Erin Brockovich–style" score. It also contains the secret to doing the news well — just deciding to! — and the revelation that Emily Mortimer will be featured a lot. There's more than one mention of something-something 2.0, and zero Olivia Munn.
