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?

I LOVE this show! I love the characters, the plotlines and the drama. Maybe an earlier time slot? I DVR it

Great show, new concept, excellent mix of casting.
Maybe in the wrong time slot.
Needs to be promoted.
Would be a mistake to cancel.

Love this show but I believe the problem is the time slot, if it was on earlier, it would have more viewers

Monday Mornings is a terrific show. We have missed it the last couple of Monday nights. When will it be back on again. Please don’t cancel it. We’vve gotten two other couples hooked and all of us want it to continue. Thanks for listening.

It’s just getting started, and it’s high quality drama. Absolutely give it a 2nd season!


James Anderson April 29, 2013 at 6:23 pm

Great show. Season two please


Gary Soka April 29, 2013 at 5:38 pm

I do not care about the ratings. If they mean so much than how can they keep a program like “Mike and Molly” still going? I think Monday Mornings is a great show and presents some issues we all ought to think about. Please leave the program on. We know it will be repaced replaced with something no one will want to watch.
