Monday Mornings: TNT Show Cancelled, No Second Season

Monday Mornings canceled, no season twoIn addition to dropping Southland, TNT has also cancelled Monday Mornings. There won’t be a second season for the freshman medical drama.

Monday Mornings follows the lives of the talented yet flawed doctors at the Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Oregon. The title refers to the tough peer review meetings that are run by the hospital’s sarcastic Chief of Staff. The cast includes Ving Rhames, Jamie Bamber, Jennifer Finnigan, Bill Irwin, Keong Sim, Sarayu Rao, Emily Swallow, and Alfred Molina.

The show started off the season with just 1.36 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That was less than half of what the Dallas premiere lead-in drew with 2.98 million and a 0.8 demo rating.

The numbers for Monday Mornings didn’t get much better as the weeks wore on. The season ended up averaging just 1.39 million viewers and a 0.3 in the demo.

That just wasn’t enough for TNT to want to order a second season and they’ve now officially cancelled it.

What do you think? Are you sorry that TNT has pulled the plug on Monday Mornings? Why do you think it didn’t catch on with a bigger audience?

I thought Monday Mornings was a fantastic show in so many ways……I think the time slot was bad and not a lot of people get TNT.
I have soooo many nurses in my family including my daughter and I tried to get them to watch but the time slot was bad for there schedule.
When I seen Dallas advertisements the last few weeks I was really looking for this show.
Sooo sad….good actors….written well. Sorry to see it go.

One of the best shows on TV. What a pity it’s gone. The show had humanity, very rare in today’s life. Wish it would come back, I really looked forward to watching.

Why? Because it wasn’t advertised, and because “they” never give anything that’s new enough time to be caught onto. If you have cable with hundreds of stations, it takes a while to discover and weed out the shows. Secondly, too many people are worried about appealing to a certain segment of the audience, leaving out the others. I’m finding that my age category (retired) are mostly left out of the fray. Monday Mornings was the perfect show for people in my category. So, it seems that every new show that I love gets canceled.

My wife and I really liked the show. One of the more unique and very well acted doctor type shows ever. I agree that it wasn’t advertised enough. Maybe a major network, like CBS, can renew it.

What a travesty, best show on tv. There is so much unintelligent garbage on tv. Please save something for sane viewers. Please somebody come to your senses.

Bring it back!! It was a great show. TNT gave it bad marketing. If it had been advertised better it could have made. Nobody I new had ever heard of it. You can’t compare it to Dallas because it was a return of an already great hit! Bring it back and do t right this time. PLEASE!!
