In Sorkin's world ACN stands for Atlantis Cable Network. There is a real life ACN in Canada which provides Internet and telephone services, and there was an ACN cable network in the US. It was "America's Collectibles Network" and sold everything from knives and watches to cosmetics and jewelry. In 2000 they changed their name to Jewelry Television. Seen in 80 million homes, they still use the ACN name legally and on signage at their broadcast location in Knoxville, TN. See more »
I signed up for IMDb solely to give this show 10 stars
I have never felt as driven to make sure other people understood just how perfect a show was. Not for Game of Thrones, Firefly, Sopranos or any of the other shows I obsess about. But this show changed that! This show boils down everything that is wrong with America and puts out a simple answer to solving that. DO THE BLOODY NEWS LIKE IT'S NEWS NOT A HIGH SCHOOL PROM ELECTION!
Jeff Daniels is perfect in his role as the tired beaten down journalist that just doesn't give a damn about anything anymore, but used too. And we can see the spark that ignites him to become great again. Why aren't real reporters like this? Why oh why?
If this show get's cancelled I will camp out in front of HBO HQ and not leave till the last Game of Thrones series comes out (because I have to get on with my life at some point).
This was my first review ever on IMDb, all because of this amazing show! You better watch it as well!
