Sports Night - Season 2 !!LINK!!


Sports Night is an American television series about a fictional sports news show also called Sports Night. It focuses on the friendships, pitfalls and ethical issues the creative talent of the program face while trying to produce a good show under constant network pressure. Created by Aaron Sorkin, the half-hour prime time comedy drama[1] aired on ABC for two seasons, from September 22, 1998 to May 16, 2000.




Sports Night - Season 2



The fictional Sports Night is a sports news program in the style of SportsCenter.[4] The show broadcasts live from 11 pm to midnight and is rebroadcast through the next morning; it may broadcast at other times for special events, such as the NFL Draft.[5] The program debuted in 1996[6] and airs from Rockefeller Center[7] in New York City on the fictional Continental Sports Channel (CSC), a unit of Continental Corp, owned and run by Luther Sachs. Continental Corp owns cable networks around the United States; when the company is offered for sale, bidders include Time Warner, Disney (which, incidentally, owns a majority of ESPN in reality), and News Corporation.[8]


Although the first season of Sports Night is a sitcom, it often is portrayed as more of a comedy drama representative of some of Sorkin's later work on The West Wing. Sorkin intended for the series' humor to be drier and more realistic than typical sitcoms. He initially wanted the show to be recorded without a laugh track, but ABC network executives insisted on including one.[12][13] The volume of the laugh track faded as Season One continued[14] and was abandoned at the beginning of Season Two.[15]


The show is mostly set in the studio and station offices. However, in the second season Anthony's, a local sports bar and restaurant, was introduced as another location for scenes out of the work environment.


Sports Night struggled to find an audience and ABC cancelled it after two seasons. Although it had the opportunity to move to several different networks, including HBO, Showtime and USA, Sorkin decided to let the show pass so that he could focus on The West Wing.[19]


KRAUSE: I think [Aaron] would admit to you himself that he bit off far more than he could chew that second season of Sports Night, in between writing all the episodes of the first season of West Wing and all the episodes of the second season of Sports Night. The creative output during that year is unmatched, but I think it took its toll on him, too.


SORKIN: It came down to the wire on a third season, which we were surprised not to get. We had a number of meetings over at ABC that we thought had gone well. But we were called and told that was it.


KRAUSE: I had some professional bitterness toward Disney at the time, when the decision was made to put Who Wants to Be a Millionaire on five nights a week. That took up five hours of prime-time programming and hurt Sports Night and other shows struggling to stake their claim.


Dana comes into the control room, asking where the network feed is. Chris tells her it's lumber sports. Dana accepts this, and tells everyone she's shuffling the 10 block. She tells Casey and Dan they're going to lead with DeNardio. Casey thinks the Jets are a better story, but Dana overrules him. Jeremy brings in a story about a Chinese swimmer who's swimming from Taiwan to mainland China, and who might be barred from the mainland by the Chinese government; Dana doesn't think that's a story to go before DeNardio either. While Dana checks the sound room briefly, Natalie, who is pointedly not talking to Jeremy, tells Casey and Dan about a pitcher named Nieuwendyk who's on pace to break the single-game strikeout record, and they think it should be the top story, but when Dana returns, she says they'll cut to the story if he does break the record and they're still leading with DeNardio. Casey and Dan think they can do all this without a script. Naturally, when the broadcast starts, they both Speak in Unison for several seconds before finally stopping, and Casey finishes it. After the teaser is over, Casey and Dan each blame each other for the gaffe.


Isaac is sitting in his office when Dana walks in. Isaac updates her on Nieuwendyk (14 strikeouts), and Dana apologizes for the teaser. Isaac tells her they're not on the air yet. Dana doesn't know what he's talking about. Isaac explains the broadcast was delayed 10 minutes because of lumber sports, and it was on the network feed. Dana admits they didn't have the network feed on because Will is afraid of lumber sports, but she's more concerned with the fact Isaac forgot to tell her the show was pushed back. Isaac says it's no big deal, he just forgot. Dana leaves the office.


A little later, the show is in full swing, and Dan updates the audience what will be on the show when they come back from break. Once they break, Dana confirms to Dan that when Nieuwendyk gets 19 strikeouts, they'll cut into the broadcast. Jeremy asks to speak to Natalie, and she motions him outside. In the conference room, Jeremy tells her he's right and she's wrong, and "they" were just going to make her a weather girl. Natalie testily corrects him she was going to get to do local sports and human interest stories. Jeremy wants to know why they're still fighting when she turned down the job, and Natalie points out Jeremy's being incredibly patronizing about the whole thing. Jeremy points out she wasn't going to get to do any real writing and reporting; Natalie points out she knew that ahead of time, but Jeremy was acting upset that she got the job offer at all. Jeremy says she's wrong, and he was really more upset about having to move to Galveston, Texas, but Natalie doesn't believe him.


  • Call-Back: To Isaac's stroke, and Dana and Gordon breaking off their engagement.

  • Continuity Nod: Dan still doesn't think much of soccer.Isaac: "Make the nets bigger"?Dan: Either that or a lot smaller and get rid of the goalies.Isaac: Dan, this network has a 3-year deal with major league soccer.Dan: I know, that's why I'm trying to help out.Isaac: Two billion soccer fans will be happy to hear that. Also, Natalie remembers Jeremy's particular Fetish is wearing one of his dress shirts.

  • Also, Isaac had told Dan he thought Luther was looking for an excuse to fire him, and Dan wonders if that's why Isaac is back at work so soon.

  • Demoted to Extra: Though Elliot, Kim, Chris, Dave and Will were always supporting players, they were usually allowed to participate in Aaron Sorkin's banter throughout each episode. Starting here, and continuing through most of the season, they were relegated to bit player status, just saying things like, "Sound's up on 23."

  • Foreshadowing: Natalie wanting to go on the air, she and Jeremy having more serious fights, and the fear the network thinks it can push the show around more all become important stories throughout the season.

  • Laugh Track: Averted throughout the season.

  • That Came Out Wrong:Natalie: "They want you because you're cute"?Jeremy: They wanted you because they're idiots.Natalie: Thank you.Jeremy: You know what I mean.

  • Title Drop:Jeremy: Women don't have special powers.
