TNT is calling time of death on the David E. Kelley medical drama Monday Mornings, the network has confirmed.

"TNT has decided not to renew the medical drama Monday Mornings for a second season. We are extremely grateful to executive producers David E. Kelly, Bill D'Elia and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on whose novel the series was based. They crafted a unique and powerfully moving drama full of memorable situations and characters brought to life by a terrific ensemble cast," a TNT spokesperson said in a statement. "Unfortunately the show never built its audience enough to warrant its continuation. We wish everyone involved with Monday Mornings the best and hope to work with them again in the future."

TNT pulls the plug on Southland after five seasons

Starring Alfred Molina, Ving Rhames and Jennifer Finnigan, the freshman series premiered in February to 1.3 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic despite following the recently renewed Dallas reboot on Monday nights. Based upon the novel of the same name by CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Monday Mornings centered on morbidity and mortality meetings, during which doctors gather to discuss and defend their shortcomings and successes before the Chief of Staff.

TNT also axed acclaimed cop drama Southland on Friday.
