The Morning Show (also known as Morning Wars in Australia and Indonesia) is an American drama streaming television series starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell, that premiered on Apple TV+ on November 1, 2019. The series is inspired by Brian Stelter's book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.
The second season premiered on September 17, 2021. In January 2022, the series was renewed for a third season.
Alex Levy anchors The Morning Show, a popular breakfast news program broadcast from Manhattan on the UBA network, which has excellent viewership ratings and is perceived to have changed the face of American television.
In the first season, after her on-air partner of 15 years, Mitch Kessler, is fired amidst a sexual misconduct scandal, Alex fights to retain her job as top news anchor while sparking a rivalry with Bradley Jackson, a haphazard field reporter whose series of impulsive decisions brings her into a new world of television journalism.
In the second season, Bradley attempts to convince Alex to return as the COVID-19 pandemic gradually engulfs America, and the show itself. Mitch's death subsequently affects everyone at UBA as well.

The Morning Show received mixed to positive reviews upon its release.
For first season of The Morning Show, the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 61% approval rating, based on 104 reviews, with an average rating of 5.78/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Flashy, but somewhat frivolous, The Morning Show often feels more like a vanity project than the hard-hitting drama it aspires to be—but there is pleasure to be had in watching Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon give it their all." Audiences on Rotten Tomatoes however, by contrast, rated the first season of the series at 93%. Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 61 out of 100 based on reviews from 37 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
The second season of the series received a 66% from Rotten Tomatoes based on 50 reviews, while audiences gave the second season a slightly less positive score of 69%, when compared with the first season. The website's critical consensus reads, "The Morning Show's second season has a slew of stupendous performances - but too many characters attempting to address too many hot-button issues makes it hard to know what any of them are actually trying to say." At Metacritic, the website gave the second season a 60 out of 100, based on 25 reviews.
Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times gave a positive review and wrote: "The Morning Show doesn't have the cinematic gravitas of the Showtime series The Loudest Voice or the Aaron Sorkin poetry of HBO's The Newsroom. It's more along the lines of the solid but underachieving Sports Night TV series from the late 1990s."
