Good television show about life in the newsroom

    Sorry if this has been discussed. I'm a big fan of Law and Order and really like its documentary style of what life is like in the police station and the DA's office. Have there ever been any good programs dealing with the working of the newspaper industry? I think I remember a sitcom that was sorta a takeoff on SportsCenter, but that was in the TV industry. Drama or comedy, anything you thought was close to realism for our biz.

    I dunno about your shop, but mine wouldn't make it on network TV with the language.

    Perfect Strangers. Cousin Larry worked at the Chicago Chronicle, after all.

    Maybe it is just the paper I am at, but a show about life in this newsroom would be boring as hell. Lots of typing with the occasional expletive-laden tirade.

    The newsroom probably would have been betterfor a TV show about 15 years ago before technology ended discussion. Now life in the office consists of copy editors cruising the internet and listening to their iPod while waiting for copy to come in. Back then there was actual conversation.
