'The Newsroom' Drinking Game

Aaron Sorkin's HBO cable news drama "The Newsroom" has been so thoroughly pilloried in the week leading up to its premiere that it appears some drinking may be in order.

In the spirit of numbing the pain, and getting in the right frame of mind to enjoy that snappy Sorkin dialogue, HuffPost TV has devised a "Newsroom" drinking game ... because even a somewhat flawed Sorkin misfire is much more fun to watch than most of the other awful new shows coming to TV this fall.

"The Newsroom" premieres Sun., June 24 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
