THE NEWSROOM
August 26, 2012  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
SEASON FINALE: Based on the promos, a lot is packed into this week’s first-season finale, including a stalker who’s sent death threats to Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels), who ends up in the hospital. But that’s not Will’s only serious problem. Also in this episode, he meets with network owner Leona (Jane Fonda), who compliments him in one sentence, then fires him the next. But The Newsroom will return next season, so expect Will McAvoy to do the same. Sorkin’s clever enough to work it out: Where there’s a Will, there’s a way.
