The Morning Show: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
The Morning Show

Critics Consensus

Though The Morning Show at times 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.

Critic Reviews for The Morning Show Season 1

All Critics (98) | Top Critics (38)

Glossy and expensive, the series is a giant, faultlessly tasteful gift box filled mostly with packing peanuts.

Top Critic

The most recent hour...really altered the tone of the series and added an important new perspective to all that came before it.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

"The Morning Show" is stylish and fast-paced, the biggest project among nine original programs kicking off the new Apple TV+ service.

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

Top Critic

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.

Nov 1, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

It has no consistency, no singular ambition or particular thing to say.

Dec 23, 2019 | Full Review…

I liked it. Just didn't love it. Both stars, along with Steve Carrell and Billy Crudup, excel, direction by Mimi Leder is exemplary, and it whizzes at a fair pace and explores current issues.

Nov 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The Morning Show doesn't have the courage of its own convictions, particularly when it comes to the subject of #metoo.

Jan 20, 2020 | Full Review…

After a slow start, The Morning Show has proven that they're not telling stories of sexual abuse to check off a relevancy box.

Oct 31, 2019 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

I don't really know if The Morning Show knows that it's high camp. I not sure that it matters. Is it doing it on purpose? Maybe, but the result is the same.

Dec 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Most tiresome are the long-winded monologues presented several times each episode, moments that reek of self-importance in the utter absence of substance.

Nov 5, 2019 | Full Review…

It's certainly fascinating to watch The Morning Show consistently jump in the deep end without knowing how to swim - it's just not entertaining to watch it flounder around helplessly scene after scene, a creative misfire of epically-budgeted proportions.

Audience Reviews for The Morning Show: Season 1

    This film is mind blowing since you can feel the perfomance of jennifer and take part of the film without being there.

    Solid and entertaining. An important story that brings to light a serious issue in a real way that people don't seem to talk about it. Slightly sorkin-y but without the pretentiousness in the dialogue. The worst part is the music—tries too hard to make you feel something and really tries to hit you over the head.

    I absolutely loved this show. The acting and cinematography is incredible and really makes you feel and understand the pain that the characters are feeling. This is a great first foray into TV for Apple and I'm excited for the next season

    This was a lot different than expected. Excellent writing and great acting.

    Def took a few episodes to really get into but then it just got exponentially better with each one building up to one of the best season finales I've seen in years. The cast is sooo perfect in their roles with my fav def being Billy Crudup. I truly did not expect myself to care much for this show after its announcement but was very surprised. one to watch for sure

    Very in-the-moment writing. Love the rollercoaster ride of tension. Bravo!

    I Absolutely love this show!!! So ready for more!! I know everyone is busy doing other things. I just hope they do not forget about this #1 show on Apple+ the main reason why I got Apple+ and then They more a lot more great show on it. Jennifer Aniston back on TV as (Alex Levy) she she doing a Amazing job with Alex and then you have Reese Witherspoon ( Bradley Jackson ) just love how she gets to the point of things. Great Job Ladies. Keep up the good work. I ready to see what's on the way.

    This is a well crafted, acted, directed and, presented show. There were real moments that actually touched me and elicited an honest emotional response. The capital that this show builds over the course of the season in rich in every sense of the word and, is deliberately spent in pacing and the reveal of the ugliness of misunderstandings and how it intertwined with the disfigurement of power. I heard that this show was mediocre at best and decided to watch it myself. Do yourself a favor as well — watch it. It shows a viscerally real attempt of people trying to navigate the minefield that is workplace politics and sexual misconduct. It tackles the problems of being human, being powerful and how being powerful alleviates the few of the responsibilities of being human. A tour de force of storytelling. 5-stars. Great show and thank you Apple for producing it.

    I don't know , it kind of weird. Once I watch the first two episodes , I really have to purchase the Apple TV to watch ‘till the end of the season . I like it but don't want to love it much . Btw , the cast is..... gorgeous

    Picks up after the first few episodes. Great casting and high production quality make this series an enjoyable watch.
