Head’s up “The Newsroom” fans, this one might sting a bit.
Aaron Sorkin’s popular HBO series will be skewered through parody on tonight’s episode of “Inside Amy Schumer.”
The clip above, posted ahead of this week's episode, is complete with everything that makes Sorkin’s drama both fantastic and terribly cringe-worthy. In just over 4 minutes, Schumer finds a way to showcase “The Newsroom’s” snappy dialogue, over-the-top speeches, high-tension with low stakes drama and complete inability to capture female characters.
“A woman’s life is worth nothing unless she’s making a great man greater,” she tells Josh Charles in the video, taking a clear shot on behalf of viewers who complain about the show’s treatment of female characters. Charles adds a bit of weight to the parody as he was formerly on one of Sorkin’s short-lived shows, “Sports Night.”
"Inside Amy Schumer" airs Tuesdays at 10:30/9:30c on on Comedy Central. HBO’s “The Newsroom” is slated to return this fall.
