People don’t want to pay for preachy political shows, and Apple TV+ delivered exactly that. But, they delivered it poorly, with review range from “blah” to “boring”, and that’s not good for the show that launches the new service. For their sake, I hope they come up with something quick!

Rolling Stone’s Alan Sepinwall says The Morning Show “feels like it could have aired on broadcast TV anytime in the last 15 to 20 years, so long as the profanity got cut,” drawing comparisons to The Newsroom, but that “it’s Sorkin without Sorkin, lacking the snappy dialogue, the soaring rhetoric, or any attempt whatsoever to argue for why anyone should care about the future of this show-within-the-show.”
