  • What is the latest on The newsroom? Is season 3 even official at this point? If so, any idea on when they start filming? Thanks.

    • At the very least, it looks like it’s going to air later than normal, since it seems like HBO will be airing The Leftovers with True Blood in the summer.

    • true blood will probably be announced right before got starts. Cause when Got ends is when true blood will start. so count 10 episodes for got maybe there might be a two week break in the middle somewhere so Im guessing June

  • I am way to excited about a trailer. And am I the only one that thinks it is kind of weird that True Detective is debuting opposite the globes, when McConaughy is nominated. Maybe not. I always thought it was weird when the Mad Men would air opposite the Emmys.
