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.

Audience Reviews for The Morning Show: Season 1

  • Jan 08, 2022
    Fast paced and brilliantly produced. And finally - Jennifer Aniston's electrifying performance shows her true potential.
  • Jan 04, 2022
    (PT) Apesar de um começo um pouco lento, a história acabou se desenvolvendo bem e trouxe a dinâmica do the morning show na TV e nos bastidores dos telejornais americanos. Com intensidade de acontecimentos, relações e movimentos desesperados por parte dos personagens, a série mostra a vulnerabilidade dos jornalistas. Com um grande elenco que fez impecável trabalho de atuação. ----- (EN) Despite a slow start, the story turned out well and brought the dynamics of the morning TV show and the backstage of American newscasts. With intensity of events, relationships and desperate movements on the part of the characters, the series shows the vulnerability of journalists. With a great cast who did a flawless acting job.

    very disappointed, considering the star-power of the cast. It is screechy, consistently at Rabid Level, with barely any nuance in any part of the production. Dialogue is consistently vulgar, so the impact of the f-word is completely lost. [The episode where Anniston's character said "F-you" to her "beloved" daughter was the last straw for me. Really?!] To continue: It's predictable. And that is the worst accusation I can level at any show. All of this comes down to the writing and the directing. To quote Witherspoon's character in the first episode, each viewing leaves me saying (not screeching, but wanting to), "I'M EXHAUSTED!"
  • Dec 16, 2021
    This surprised me. I think morning "news" shows are vapid and dumb down the American public. But I didn't realize until watching that this series embraces that view and skewers the cynicism of the networks, exposing their hypocrisy. Aniston and Carell play against type as the preening, self-indulgent, narcissist hosts. The MeToo / Matt Lauer plot feels a little dated but the issues are of course real. Billy Crudup is a stand out as an ambitious executive that just might have a bit of a soul buried within his creepy manipulative exoskeleton.

    I watch the series because I just enjoyed more of the humor side and I didn't take anything serious. Jennifer's performance was a flash back of "Friends" and "The Break up" she just looks and acts the same just older. Didn't anyone notice she can't even produce a fake tear with that scene when Mitch died. She did so much body and facial movement! There are some talented actors on that series! The thing is I seriously felt that it was going in so many direction and key topics but because of the pandemic there was a distraction. That Covid became focus and the show to me went down hill. Who would pay for stream tv to watch a anchor woman with covid when everyone has other things to do that important in live? Also for Reese to have the role of a women to be so intelligent why is she running around town with out a mask if she knows everyone is cheering a mask? Like who wrote this script! Lol people wake up and stop take the series so serious! Just sit back and watch for the humor.

    A rather unexpected take on the world of journalism, but it delivers it greatly nevertheless. It tackles each scene and plot point perfectly, it remains flawless as you are immersed into this world while this world reflects reality and puts its story in the foreground.
  • Dec 02, 2021
    I enjoyed season one of The Morning Show - But the plot and script could have been better, especially considering what a great cast was involved.
  • Nov 23, 2021
    Better than the reviews claim, was on the edge of my seat each episode.
  • Nov 22, 2021
    I enjoyed the first season. The last episode was incredible.
  • Nov 02, 2021
    Fenomenal. Amazing, my best serie ever.
