1 Great show, one of my all-time favorites. Only problem was that it didn't last 12 more seasons. And the laugh track was taken out. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:43 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I have to comment about an earlier comment: The reason Isaac had a stroke was that Robert Guillaume actually had a stroke. Writing that into the show was a stroke of genius (if you'll forgive the word play). -- Submitted By: (alweiss) on May 24, 2011, 11:54 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Someone once said, "The greatest one hour drama on television is a half-hour comedy called Sports Night." How true. I think this was the greatest TV series ever! -- Submitted By: (alweiss) on May 24, 2011, 11:49 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I WISH they would come out with this on DVD without the freaking laugh track. The writing is classic Aaron Sorkin, but man that laugh track is really horrid. -- Submitted By: (AmyMcAwesome) on September 5, 2010, 1:57 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Baldrick, I don't think you're correct about the laugh track. I think the laugh track was with the show when it started and as it progressed they turned down the volume and by the second season it was gone. It was horribly out of place and awkward if I remember correctly, so I was pretty relieved when they got rid of it. I think Aaron Sorkin never wanted a laugh track, but ABC had a policy at the time with their sitcoms that they were required to have a laugh track. Since they considered Sports Night one (though it was more of a dramady), it had to have one until they were smart enough to let them take it off, but by then it was too late. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 25, 2010, 5:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Very good show but it was never going to keep it up. The storyline of bringing in Macy as a "fixer" to tweak the show was a bit of Art imitating itself on a show where the network had clearly already done an off-season tweak to the show itself by adding a laugh track. This might have actually been done mid-season the first year but I'm too lazy to check now. Still, it was a great self-contained bit of TV archive. I think they handled their "Very Special Episode" quite well and Natalie made me buy her reaction about the "Mary Pat Shelby" incident. That was tough. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 6:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Great TV show that wasn't given a fair shake. It had moments where it was toeing with the fish (Isaac's stroke, Dana becoming dumb in the second season, the fight between Casey and Dan, Sorkin getting more preachy with his writing, etc.), but it stayed fresh and captivating. Too bad it was on ABC, where great shows go to die after two seasons. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 9, 2010, 1:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
