The Season 1 finale of "The Newsroom" airs Sunday on HBO, and the show's fans and detractors have lined up on Twitter to express their anticipation.

Aaron Sorkin and HBO's look inside the workings of a broadcast network built a fan base while drawing critical ire. A number of professional TV watchers derided what they saw as weak female leads who were too enamored by protagonist (and anchorman) Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels). Others others found the show's seeming inability to account for contemporary technology a bit trying.

But the fans keep coming. Last week's episode drew nearly 2 million viewers, which is not bad considering there are no vampires in the offices of ACN ("True Blood," on the other hand, nearly cleared 5 million).

Below, take a look at what fans and the show's cast are saying about the finale. The show airs at 10 p.m. on HBO.
