The same day as TNT cancelled Southland, a more low profile cancellation comes this way, as TNT also cancelled Monday Mornings, making the freshman show not to come back. This David E. Kelley / Sanjay Gupta show got axed because of low ratings after making its whole season at 1.34 million viewers and 1.37 for the finale. That was low even for cable standards, and no matter how much its fans loved the show, they were few, and that hurt its chances.
In the official announcement it reads, TNT has decided not to renew the medical drama Monday Mornings for a second season. We are extremely grateful to executive producers David E. Kelly, Bill D’Elia and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on whose novel the series was based. They crafted a unique and powerfully moving drama full of memorable situations and characters brought to life by a terrific ensemble cast. Unfortunately the show never built its audience enough to warrant its continuation. We wish everyone involved with Monday Mornings the best and hope to work with them again in the future.
