This was not a good start for Monday Mornings. It was the lowest TNT scripted debut in more than a year and lost 40% of lead-in Dallas’ audience.


Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.

    Give it a chance & you’ll be hooked like me. I find it very entertaining & believeable. It would be a shame & big disappointment if it were to be cancelled.

    I like the show. I think it hones in on and focuses on one of the most important aspects of the medical profession. Lots of doctors suck at the non-technical side of dealing with patients. While this show has (as it must) the illnesses and injuries, it is trying to focus on the ethics of medicine and patient’s rights. Gee, shouldn’t we be glad to see a show that can be fascinating from an action standpoint and might also possibly make us safer when / if we or someone we care about goes to a hospital? I hope it makes it.

    Watched the first episode. As usual with medical dramas, it’s really fantasy. I like these actors, but I can’t suspend my grip on reality long enough to become interested in this fluff. I won’t be back for this little stinker.

    First of all, my usual request: please stop talking about 18-49 as if it meant anything other than in PR spin terms.

    Networks sell pairs of eyes, not demo pairs of eyes.

    Second, unlike the other posters I was extremely disappointed by the show. It is nowhere near the level of, say, Chicago Hope.

    This is due in great part to Jennifer Finegan and Jaime Bamber. Bamber is a so-so actor without any charisma and Finegan is awful. She can’t act.

    Add to that writing that is not up to David Kelley-level. The whole idea of a Chief of Staff trying to bury his staff in guilt and lack of self-confidence is ludicrous and one has to believe it started with Mr. Gupta (who is not a dramatic writer) and TNT executives who also I’m sure imposed the terrible lead actors as it’s the first time I’ve seen a David Kelley show with bad actor!!!

    Look no further for the reason for the terrible ratings.

    I really like the idea of the show.

    As a Nurse for over 22 years once again we see a whole profession erased from even the spots usually reserved for extras in a scene.

    How many trauma’s do you think Dr. Gupta attended without one nurse in sight as seen in the finale of the first episode?

    I’m into the second episode and while I do really like medical shows – to not even have support staff as extras in the scenes makes this show fall really flat.

    I’m hoping for a Nurse, Social Worker or Chaplin to be in a scene.

    A family meeting with only Doctors in the room – I’ve never seen it in 22 years and it would never be a great idea.

    Off to watch the 3rd episode – fan of Kelly and Gupta.

    Love the show. I have a newborn so I record it on the Dish Network Hopper. But I try to see it every week ASAP!!! I hope it stays!!!!!

    It’s a really good show, well-written, well-acted. TNT needs to advertise more. Last night on the west coast it was on at 7pm and 9pm on Direct TV in L.A. and at 10pm on cable in Orange County. Lucky that I found it. What’s up with that?

    • Rena Moretti says

      Sorry but any show with Jennifer Finegan in the lead is not “well-acted”. She doesn’t convince as a Doctor and barely passes for more than a cut-out figure.

    • Rena Moretti says

      Really? Many doctors going around doing their colleagues’ jobs while not having a single patient of their own?

      How realistic indeed…

      • Anonymous says

        Nurses take care of patients, Rena. That’s why you don’t see any on the show, they’re busy.

  8. sandie says

    I thought it was awful I couldn’t even get through the 2nd episode, TNT needs to stick to Rizzoli & Isles & Leverage

  9. says

    Loved it……huge fan of David Kelly. Acting was very good and the show moved along at a very fast clip! Can’t wait for the next episode………(not loving TNT’s 3+ minutes of ads every few minutes though…..seemed like really big chunks took away from the shows ‘MO’
