Tabloid Wars is an American reality television series which premiered on July 24, 2006, on the Bravo cable network. Filmed in mid-2005, the show chronicles the working lives of journalists from the New York Daily News.[1]

Featured writers and editors included Michael Cooke, Lenore Skenazy, Dean Chang, Tracy Connor, Tony Sclafani, Joanna Molloy, Kerry Burke, and Hudson "Hud" Morgan. Despite good reviews from critics,[2] the show was not renewed for a second season.

The show was initially supposed to focus on employees working in the New York Post; the editor in chief Col Allan, however, opted to pass on the show.[3] The series was announced in April 2005 and was initially called The Daily News.[4]
