Are you getting enough bang for your buck from the first season of the Black Monday TV show on Showtime? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Black Monday is cancelled or renewed for season two. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we’d like to offer you the chance to rate all of the Black Monday season one episodes here. *Status update below.
A Showtime historical comedy full of 1980s excess, Black Monday stars Don Cheadle, Regina Hall, Paul Scheer, Horatio Sanz, Yassir Lester, Andrew Rannells. Centering on the stock market crash of October 19, 1987, the action unfolds at the Jammer Group, a shabby little firm lead by Maurice “Mo” Monroe (Cheadle). Mo’s team of traders includes the practical, no-nonsense Dawn (Hall), the compliant Keith (Scheer), Wayne (Sanz) the wild man, and Yassir (Lester), who is not lacking in self-confidence, and into this lion’s den walks the new kid on the block — Blair Pfaff (Rannells). Guest stars in the first season include Casey Wilson, Kurt Braunholer, Ken Marino, Eugene Cordero, Bruce Dern, Melissa Rauch, Kadeem Hardison, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Tim Russ, Julie Hagerty, Phil Reeves, and Jason Michael Snow.
