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?

    Didn’t know this show was going to be on. I happen to be at the movie theatre when it was advertised. Like everyone is saying needs better advertising.

    Monday Mornings is a fabulous medical drama!! My husband and I love it!! Please don’t cancel it…. at least give it a shot with a second season!!

    I liked the show and so did several of my friends. I think you should start thinking of people other than the 18 to 49 year olds. They do not stay home to watch TV the older people do .

    I really hope this show is not cancelled. I have watched the entire season and I really like Monday Mornings. Please TNT keep it on for another season.

    Monday Mornings is a phenomenal show!! Both my mother and I would be deeply disappointed if this show is canceled. The acting is absolutely terrific (especially Alfred Molina) and the story lines are very intriguing.

    With nothing else on but dreadfully scripted “reality” shows, I find Monday Mornings to be refreshingly different.

    It is the only show on television that I would actually pay a premium to watch!

    I just heard about this show yesterday while watching The Doctors tv show. I was very excited to hear about this show, as I love Jennifer Finnigan. I wish that TNT would have advertised the show better. I should google Jennifer Finnigan more often. Disappointed I missed the whole season and hope I can download the episodes. She is a wonderful actress.
