Written and EP’d by Bates Motel co-creator Kerry Ehrin, the project — which received a two-season, 20-episode order right out of the gate — is billed as “an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual.” The series was originally conceived as a sitcom but the concept — and tone — shifted during the development process.

I just saw this trailer. Basically it is an "all about Eve" story. I am disappointed, not that I would be watching anyway. I am not getting multiple streaming services to watch different shows, maybe I will borrow it from the library when it is on DVD.

Early reviews are in for this show and they are not that great. TV Line says it's straight up awful.

Yikes. This was one show I actually wanted to watch and considered trying out Apple + for it, but now I'm going to wait and see if it improves.

The Watch podcast by The Ringer says TMS improves after 3 or 4 episodes.

I hope Jennifer Aniston wins. She was great in this. 

Reese Witherspoon was ok but I'm not sure about award nominations. I didn't find her performance noteworthy.

These days, Lee can be found playing the ambitious, Gen-Z-literate former media-company president Stella Bak on The Morning Show, which returned for its second season last month. Vogue recently spoke with Lee about the series, her avoiding social media in her own life, and Stella’s inimitable style. Read the full interview below.

Bill Simmons teased a podcast on the finale with something along the lines of "one of the worst shows I've ever seen."

‘The Morning Show’ EP On Season 2 Finale, Teases Season 3 Time Jump, More Bradley & Laura

Note: Apple has yet to announce a season 3 pick-up of The Morning Show.

Well, at least she recognizes the Cory-Stella relationship as being interesting (one of the only things this season that turned out that way, imo). From that I don't get the impression that Cory/Bradley is going anywhere, thank goodness. It almost felt like that was something dangling over from last season that they felt they had to make him say out loud, but hopefully they drop it now. If the show continues (I get the feeling it probably will. Maybe one more season).

Renewed for Season 3!

I thought Season 2 was mostly a mess, but I'll admit that I kind of love this ridiculous show.

Mind blowing. Considering some of the tv shows that get cancelled each year. I think the star power influenced the decision. Will I watch? Probably not. But maybe?????? So bad, yet can it get better? Can't it???? 🙄

I can’t believe it’s been renewed.  Season 2 was a fail, imo, but with this cast why can’t they make it good?  I don’t understand it.  I’d volunteer to help them with with some ideas and scripts for a very fair salary. Lol. I’m serious.    I suspect the problems are due to ego filled producers who are not focused on the project.  They don’t seem to consider how these scripts come off or what the viewer thinks about the character’s actions.  One thing they should ask themselves at least once a day, is does this make sense?  To me, there is a trend in tv series lately where the writers want the viewer to hate the characters….all the characters….it’s crazy, but seems to be the new.🤷‍♀️

I liked season 1, but it’ll take a big change from last season for me to pay for more Appletv.  I wasn’t very impressed.
