Monday Mornings: To Be Cancelled or Renewed for Season Two?

Monday Mornings cancel or renew?TNT recently wrapped the first season of Monday Mornings, their latest medical drama. Should it return for a second season or be cancelled instead?

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.

Given these numbers, it seems highly unlikely that Monday Mornings will be back for a second season.

But what do you think? Would you like to see the show return for a second season or do you think it should be cancelled? Why do you think the show didn’t catch on with a bigger audience? Was the title a problem? What would you have called it?

    We loved the show and will be very very disappointed if it does not return. We especially liked the Asian brain surgeon, a man of few words but great skills.

    We thoroughly enjoyed “Monday Mornings”. Excellent cast! Excellent interplay of characters. We wonder whether being shown on lesser known station didn’t give it the attention it deserves. Please keep it going next season.

    absolutely love this show, and so does my dad and sister. I’m 36, my sister 35, and my dad 65 and we all tape it and watch it and talk about it all day Tuesday together.

    I never watched Dallas and couldn’t give a sh*t about it, but this hospital drama is great.

    please keep it!

    I think the show should go on, it’s the only intense show that has no sex scenes or inappropriate scenes. why they are not cancelling stupid Kardashian shows or Nashville, is it because lots of kissing & sex is happening?

    My parents and I extremely enjoyed watching Monday Mornings!!!
    It is an exciting and funny show that should continue with many
    more seasons. Just because the ratings aren’t as high as Dallas, that
    doesn’t mean the show should be canceled!!!!! We want more, we want
    more, we really like it, we want more!!!!!!
