The scheming station head manager Cory Ellison sees in her the chance to push his career further. The show's other popular co-host Alex Levy, disgruntled by the fact that she has to take in a newbie, tries to use this new situation to make her own power move and turn Bradley into an ally. Meanwhile, Mitch refuses to accept defeat and tries to take everyone in the station who knew about his sexual abuse scandal but said nothing down with him. Other characters include Chip Black, the show's cynical top producer and program organizer, Hannah Shoenfeld, the station's employee and Mitch's emotionally gutted silent victim, Yanko Flores, a romantic and the Morning Show's most popular reporter, Claire Conway, a British junior employee of the ...

Great show
6 November 2019 | by francis007See all my reviews

One of the weirdest critic I saw was that the show is left wing propaganda. Well this is on the opposite a very balanced show, that gives a voice to the men perspective on MeToo and criticises it very harshly while the main hero is a moderate conservative. This is why the show is good - you get different perspective and ideas.
