Julie Klausner Live-Blogs The Newsroom Season Finale

Whether you hate-watch or regular-watch Aaron Sorkin's latest contribution to the "Men and Their Ideas" genre, join me, Julie Klausner, as I live-blog the finale of The Newsroom. Will Mac and Will kiss after Will has another few pot brownies? Will Sloan call that guy she met on the plane that time? Will Maggie dump Don for Jim, then have a panic attack, causing her bangs to spontaneously gain volume? How drunk will Charlie Skinner seem? And will Neal say "Bigfoot" at any time? Don't wait until tomorrow to read about it on that trashy website, TMI! Let's all find out together.
