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.

    I’m very upset Monday morvery upsetning has been cancelled . I looked forward to watching every week . I recorded it on my dvr . Please bring it back.

    Thought this show was fresh and creative, not to mention as realistic as a television series about “hospital life” could be. Cast was great and the chemistry was excellent. To cancel this show was “not good” and considering how TNT airs about 8-10 episodes of a series and then inserts a 4 – 6 month break before it resumes that series, I’m not sure how they are even able to maintain any kind of ratings at all. I think someone yelled “the sky is falling” a little too quickly on Monday Mornings, after all, TNT may just need that cast to resuscitate their network once viewers finally get fed up with series like Falling Skies and Rizzoli and Isles … You know, when the season premier airs one week only to be followed by the season finale the next week. I don’t guess it would be so ironic if a network like TNT blew itself up …

      Just realized my last comment may have not come across in the way I intended for it to. I was just trying to orchestrate a play on words and simply meant that TNT ‘s own decisions could end up hurting their own ratings – absolutely nothing more than that .

    Monday Morning was not given a chance to get going. It’s great show and needs to be given a second chance. I really enjoyed this show and would hate for it to be axed after only a few shows. When you look at all of those stupid shows that are picked up year after year it makes you wonder. Given another run it might prove to be even better than House MD….and that was a great show.

    There is something so different, touching, and realistic about Monday Mornings that makes it rise above all other medical-type shows, past and present, on TV. The actors seem to genuinely enjoy the characters that they play and the casting is perfect. All I can say is “No Cancel, Keep Live.”

    I should have added that I never did see it at the time scheduled (too late for me!) It was on the DVR every week, and we always looked forward to it – maybe your audience share was better than you think it was. There are always more than 1 way to view. PLEASE bring it back!

  6. Vicki says

    This was by FAR my favorite show in a long time! PLEASE bring it back. There was no advertising that I saw, and I only heard about it when it was half through. I am so tired of all the soap opera night time shows, this was a standout – a GREAT drama. I loved all of the characters, and the plots were so realistic. Good drama, good emotions, good character development. If you try advertising it like they did for Revenge, or Scandal, or so many others, I would think you would get a lot of people to try it. I am sure that your audience share would be impressive! Give it a better chance!

    By far I think that this series is the most outstanding, relevant ant remarkable series about the art and science of Medicine in ages. In this age of empty, frivolous and decadent TV shows, it is the very best I’ve seen in a long time. I hope it’s not cancelled. I can’t watch it at the regular time of 10:00 PM, but I haven’t missed one episode on “Free on demand”. My congratulations to Sanjay Gupta for this high quality material!!

  8. Brian says

    This is one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. Monday Mornings proves that TNT “knows drama”, and I hope that they are intelligent enough to renew. May benefit from a better time slot, but this is definitely not a show to watch while the kids are still awake.

    Too many good shows are being canceled while reality garbage is spewed across TV.

  9. Margaret Hornick says

    This is one of my favorite shows. It is excellent and I hope it returns. Perhaps it is too intellectual for most and they prefer mundane shows like Dallas which I never watch. Please continue with shows that have substance.

  10. Kim says

    The best new show no one is watching!! Great premise. Needs a better time slot and better advertising. Love ‘the tell’ and the blonde neurosurgeon….OMG!
