Monday TV Picks: The new ‘Monday Mornings’ on TNT
TV picks for Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, include the new “Monday Mornings” on TNT, “Bones” on Fox and “Castle” on ABC.
Tonight in Prime Time
This new medical drama comes from producer David E. Kelley (“Boston Legal” and “The Practice”) and CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Based on Gupta’s novel, the series follows the lives of several doctors (played by Ving Rhames, Alfred Molina, Jamie Bamber, Jennifer Finnigan and Bill Irwin) at a fictional Portland hospital. While the seasoned actors are typically good, the younger cast members are so very earnest about Being Doctors. Hopefully, that will even out with time. Series premiere, 10 p.m. Monday on TNT (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
