Does Jeff Daniels have an itchy Twitter finger?

HBO’s The Newsroom wrapped Season 2 on Sunday night with 1.7 million total viewers (or 1.9 mil, folding in a replay). That’s down 10 and 32 percent from the show’s freshman finale, as well as markedly below this season’s premiere numbers (2.2 mil/2.6 mil).

In the wake of Daniels’ unofficial renewal tweet, HBO told our sister site Deadline they are “continuing our conversations” with series creator Aaron Sorkin about the show’s future.
