Monday Mornings is an American medical drama television series that ran on TNT from February 4 to April 8, 2013 and aired Mondays after Dallas. It is based on a novel of the same name by Sanjay Gupta. In May 2012, TNT placed a ten-episode order for the series.
On May 10, 2013, Monday Mornings was canceled by TNT after one season.
The series follows the professional and personal lives of five doctors at the fictional Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Oregon. The series title refers to the weekly peer-reviewed conferences held on Monday mornings, at which the surgeons receive both praise for their accomplishments and lambasting for their mistakes, usually from the sharp-tongued and often sarcastic Dr. Hooten.
