The Morning Show

Critics Consensus

Though The Morning Show often feels more like a vanity project than the hard-hitting drama it aspires to be, there is pleasure to be had in watching Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon give it their all.

It's not great, but oh, God, is it interesting.

Top Critic

This show has everything.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

This is TV about the 1% made by the 1% and produced by the ultimate 1% company, and it's simply less interesting than the true story that it's ripping off.

Nov 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

When The Morning Show finally gets its setup established, and starts to grapple with the consequences and the meaning of what [Steve Carrell's character] has actually done, the show finds some momentum.

Nov 4, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a throwback in all the wrong ways.

Nov 3, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

The Morning Show dares to execute a very difficult balancing act, with women in off-camera command instead of assuming the positions assigned to them -- by men. The result so far is more than fair, but with continued storytelling perils ahead.

That's The Morning Show. They're the Gin Blossoms of television shows. It's not particularly original, the writing is thin, but it's polished, it hits all the right emotional beats, and it's very watchable.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

It's not groundbreaking, by any stretch, but I'm hooked with its "tune in next week" cliff-hangers and desire to address the #MeToo polemic.

Nov 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The Morning Show is getting less boring.

Oct 31, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

We'll have to see if "The Morning Show" completely clicks, but even with an uneven first three episodes, Aniston is terrific as the veteran TV broadcaster who is, to borrow a phrase, mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

I don't think The Morning Show will reveal anything about network news or the challenges for women in the workplace that I don't already know, but, just like a cooking segment, it has sucked me in.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

The Morning Show undertakes the complex task of alluding to the #MeToo movement, and does this by drawing an unavoidable parallelism with Matt Lauer. [Full Review in Spanish]

    Doesn't really get going until episode 4 but when it does really good.

    Very gripping and current. Worth binge watching.

    Great show so far, can not wait for more.

    Have watched all 4 episodes thus far and got hooked somewhere between episode 3-4. Will continue to watch. As a bingewatcher, I would recommend waiting till Dec so you can watch them at a quicker pace.

    Addicting! Loving this show!

    This show is horrid. It sounds like it was written by a bunch of keyboard warriors who never left Twitter. It feels unauthentic and unnatural. The acting's just..... bad.
  • 2d ago
    Critics are being way too harsh. The story is something we haven't seen on TV and it combines humor with some really great drama. 4 episodes in and I'm hooked. Must watch.

    Much better than I expected it to be. Likeable characters and a good story so far. J Aniston is superb in this show.

    I've watched three quarters of the first episode and it's like watching a self centred 50 year old teenager crying over something trivial. Honestly, I work with young people daily and they have real issues. What is she afraid of losing? Her money? Her power? I will watch more and hope for depth... I like Reece's character & at the moment there is no competition. Out with the old, in with the new! ..Oh and the ‘me too' thing? I feel this is glossed over. I'm sure the series will expand on this but no one is asking any real questions... Okay so episode 4 in and I'm hooked. Much better with Reece's character untangling them all, some honesty and still a fair bit of self indulgence from Jen's character (I want like the ice queen more but can't yet). I've upgraded from meh to good 👍

    I can see that the pilot episode was not this type of pilot episode that the creators want to show everything and to "win" the viewers with 1000 new things and cliffhangers. When i saw the episode 2 i realize that the tv show will rock and "Apple"gave to the creators blank list and time :)
