“I just watched the whole first season of Girls with my daughters. I probably won’t watch the second season — it was too immature for me — but it was interesting,” she tells Ad Week. “I’m going to sound like an ancient person, but I was rather shocked at what they can show on TV now.”
But there is one HBO series MacDowell is obsessed with: “The Newsroom.” She says she’s not much of a TV person, but that show has managed to captivate her.
“The other day, I watched ‘The Newsroom’ for the first time after a friend recommended it. That was really good,” MacDowell explains. “I’m so disappointed in the news nowadays — I watch CNN, but they talk about the same things over and over. I wish there was a news channel that really told you what was going on in the world, not just sensationalized news.”
“Cedar Cove” has been renewed for a second season.
