99. Broadcast News (A-)

Network's less polemical, more humanistic 1980s counterpart. It's not as good as a film, but it's still quite good, and I especially appreciate the way that James L. Brooks balances the various characters, particularly William Hurt and Albert Brooks; Hurt's character would be significantly more villainized in a less well-written film, and Brooks' would lose a lot of his rough edges. I think the epilogue is rather unnecessary, though.
