This highly acclaimed but shortly lived half-hour comedy focused on the staff of a cable sports news program called "Sports Night." As the anchors and producers duck and weave through their career goals, workplace romances, rough divorces, and a love/hate relationship with professional sports, the power-plays on the court, in the office, and behind closed doors create a dynamic and often hilarious environment. Written by Aaron Sorkin, Sports Night has been praised for the balance in depicting the inner-workings of its setting, the relationships between its characters, and the unique overarching world of sports journalism that draws them together. Networks had trouble finding the show an audience and eventually it was canceled. While Sorkin was offered the chance to continue the series on cable, he declined to focus on his new series The West Wing, which found tremendous success and was praised for many of the same merits as Sports Night. ~ Cammila Albertson, All Movie Guide

Fast Paced Sports Comedy by marazanvose October 17, 2003 - 8:17 AM PDT

If you love SportsCenter and ESPN, you'll love this show about the behind-the-scenes action at a SportsCenter-type program. You get all kinds of characters, the funny cohost, the mousy producer, the nerdy stat-boy associate producer. The comedy is fast paced, and knowing that it was created/written by Aaron Sorkin, it definitely felt like the West Wing, lots of shots of people walking quickly and talking with each. Just like the West Wing, the camera moves a lot, which is not the norm for the normal sitcom. The 8 episodes on this disc left me wanting to watch discs 2-6 right now.
