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 (86) | Top Critics (30)

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.

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…

A brilliantly crafted episode.

Oct 31, 2019 | Rating: 4.2/5 | Full Review…

This constant switch from LOL to OMG is enough to give a viewer whiplash, and maybe even some nightmares.

Nov 1, 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]

Nov 14, 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…

Even though the show's stars carry a lot of the weight, one can't help but think that The Morning Show's lack of subtlety might wind up overpowering even them. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for The Morning Show: Season 1

    Must-see TV with a few of my favorite comedic actors pulling off more serious subject roles. LOVE IT!
  • 8h ago
    An incredible well-driven drama that fills the gap in the lack of originality in this modern streaming world. Also, extraordinary performances!
  • 8h ago
    The current day issues this series tackles coupled with unparalleled performances from stars like Anniston, Witherspoon, and Carell make The Morning Show a fine and relevant production.
  • 8h ago
    Great show. Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon nail it!

    I thought "The Morning Show" was fantastic. I nearly didn't watch it. Because who wants to watch a show about a plastic, brain-dead TV show. <br> However, I was amazed,<br> * Jennifer Anniston can really act. Unlike so many of her Hollywood peers who can only portray one character.<br> * It was a joy to watch, the slow dismembering of Mitch's denial of his behaviour.<br> * The multiple plots and sub-plots all meshed together extremely well.<br> * It's about time the role of a really, angry woman, (not in a done-to-death, action, revenge movie) was central.<br> * The parallels to Fox News, Today, etc were interesting to pick out.

    My only complaint is that I can't binge this show due to the week to week format. Friday is now the most highly anticipated day of the week in my household. Three amazing shows (For all Mankind, See, and this) all come out at the exact same time!

    I love the show, I've worked in network before and this is exactly how things turn out to be!
  • 17h ago
    Overacted and poorly written. Star power does not equal a good show. The Morning Show needs to be canceled.
  • 21h ago
    I love this season. Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston's performances are incredible. The show is modern, talking about current issues that matter but brings many side stories that makes it compelling and fun to watch. I cannot wait for Fridays so I can watch the next episode!
  • 21h ago
    Excellent show all the way around. We couldn't stop watching!
