The trailer for Aaron Sorkin's new HBO show has been released. David Frum commented that the show had an implausible premise: "The new Aaron Sorkin series appears to pose the urgent question: What if Brian Williams woke up one morning as Keith Olbermann?"
ThinkProgress thought the show came at the perfect time for Keith Olbermann. Just as the trailer was being released, Olbermann was being released from his new job at Current TV. He might hope the drama of the show will distract from the drama of his own life.
But will the show actually be any good and succeed like his most recent movie, The Social Network? Or will it fail to catch on with audiences like Sorkin's last TV outing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip?
