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?

My husband and I loved this show. We had to record it because we go to bed too early – lol. However, we would be so disappointed if they cancelled this show.

I am a physician (though not a surgeon) and I love this show. It is the most realistic medical show I have ever seen. I enjoy the fact that it shows how medical cases are reviewed from two types of systems: the Mortality and Morbidity Conference (M&M) and the medico-legal system. Both of these have their strengths and weaknessess and the viewer can decide which one is fairer. The characters are also interesting and multi-dimensional. It would be a shame if this show was cancelled because it is both entertaining and educational.
