Premiere: “Your Morning” reviewed

your-morning-logoThe Canadian Press asked me to get up early Monday and review the show that is replacing Canada AM, CTV’s Your Morning. I did, and you can read the review here.

I think it was Tim Goodman in The Hollywood Reporter who self-imposes a 100-day ban on reviewing any new late night talk show. Same rule should apply for morning shows, I think. It takes a while — sometimes a year — for these shows to find their feet.

Still, people wanna know, and I was happy to take the assignment, so here are a few extra thoughts.

I thought Monday’s show was a pretty solid first effort, production-wise. Everything was in focus and well-lit and the microphones were in order.

CTV moved their morning show from their original bunker up in Agincourt and now have all their daytime originals under the same roof in on Queen Street West, including Marilyn Denis and The Social. This allows them to use the same cameras, crews and producers. That helped Monday morning.

There’s also the thought that they’ll now get those guests in studio who didn’t want to be limo-ed out to Agincourt before. I dunno about that — the limo rides were always pretty cool.

The show should be able to draw plenty of big name guests from TIFF in a few weeks. The Bell Lightbox is just two blocks south. Here’s hoping they bust the show out of the studio more and create an environment that tells viewers right away they are in downtown Toronto. That big glass top table and wrap-around video wall could be in Brampton.

The new show title seems pretty generic, too. Your Morning Mississauga I could see, even Your Morning Moosejaw.  Maybe I just got used to hearing Canada AM after 43 years.

Another dude in the nix might also be a good idea. With four women to one man around the table now, the gabbier parts of the show seem too much like The Social.

  1. With Mulroney just oozing metrosexualness, there might as well be 4.5 women hosting this show.

  2. On a totally unrelated note, I’ve noticed that Chris Shultz is missing from the CFL on TSN panel. I know earlier this year I thought they mentioned on air his father passed away. Do you know the scoop?

    The new show is a early version of The Social which I always changed the channel on and will continue to change the channel on this new show. Loved Canada AM for 30 years. Can’t stand this show.

      I rate this as a very unsuccessful program. This program called your morning just is an automatic turn off in my home. I never seen such commentators have so many of their own opinions , working at trying to sway the thoughts of the public like these ones do…. instead of taking it as an opportunity to teach respect to those in Authority these guys are taking it as an opportunity to pull down anything that doesn’t line up with their liberal thoughts. I find it very disturbing. More and more news programs that you turn to now is more about teaching Society disrespect than anything else. And yet they’re all over anybody who shows any thought about anything contrary to their own……. the only thing positive about the whole show is Kelsey and the weather. Ben and lindsey have to go if you have any hope of keeping it on the air. Anne Marie for the most of time has learned to control her opinion to some degree.
      I have already cancelled some of my incoming programs that contain anything related to the CNN news mafia and this stuff is the next to go…..
      Find you some mature journalists or commentators that can get on there and present issues just as they are without spicing them up with anything they don’t like , especially American politics. We don’t need to hear about how much they dislike the leadership of the USA. …. I would strongly suggest that if you wish to keep any followers that you get something on there besides this group of opinionated people who have never learn the art of controlling their own thoughts and realizing that not the whole world thinks like they do… and that is okay. One can think different and still not be a bigot or a racist or a phobic of some sort…

  4. I’m curious to see the ratings for this new morning show – it’s horrible. I tried again this morning to watch, but it’s so bad, I actually opted to watch CP24 just to get some real news fast.

      Nothing like Canada AM and, I miss it. I am now watching CBC in the mornings. Its not so much about “pretty” and, much more informative. By the way, what ever happened to Katie Simpson on CTV? I see she is now on CBC. Did Katie not fall into the “pretty” slot? I happen to think she is very attractive and, a great journalist. CTV’s loss. Shame on you CTV.

  7. So disappointed in CTV. You have gone from a professionally- produced NEWS program to a low-budget wannabe production that frankly insults your viewers’ intelligence. Please, please reconsider the move. Cancel this poor excuse for a morning show and bring back a morning news program. You don’t even have to call it Canada AM but please staff it with competent journalists instead of party planners! I agree with the poster above. Ben is just too metrosexual for a national NESX broadcast!

  8. I cannot stand the show. Have tried to watch it almost every morning since it started to try to give it a chance. It seems to be a mix of all other morning shows with a total slant on entertainment. This is not what I want in the morning. I want Canadian, and international, news. Too bad they got rid of the old Canada AM. They knew what they were doing, how to do it, and had great chemistry together.

  9. Stopped watching it the first week. It’s terrible I feel like I am watching a wannabe American show missing the mark by miles. So distracting to much BLUE the set is awful, too many floral outfits, too much big hair, ready for the red carpet, not for a morning show. Just ridiculous!! Get rid of it and bring back Canada AM.

  10. I have tried to be open-minded and give this show a chance, but unfortunately it no longer gets turned on in the morning as I now go to CBC to get the up-to-date news. So miss Marcie, Bev and Jeff – they will never be replaced!

  11. I refuse to watch this show. The 24 hour notice to viewers that Canada AM was being cancelled was unprofessional. Bell Media does not know its audience at all. We miss Bev, Marci, and Jeff. They were a dynamite trio. This show is just a ditto of all the other day time entertainment shows. Bad Move Bell.

  12. This program has no news and is just another yappy sequel to the Social which I also can not watch. These women are all so shallow and just talk to hear themselves. As far as morning news. the weather women sounds like a windup Cupid doll —-way too many words to give us the weather report . It is also regurgitated. too many times during the show.
    Please bring back a format like Canada AM that showed some professionalism and gave us world and local news. We live in Ottawa

  13. I watched the first day and that was enough for me. Can’t stand Ben Mulroney. I think it’s disgraceful the way Bell media and CTV shut down a long standing show such as Canada AM with just 24 hours notice. It tells me a lot about the high paying execs who made this decision…..that they don’t know their viewing audience nor do they care about what we think about these idiotic decisions! I was so angry about the way that all went down that I no longer watch ctv and am considering switching to another cable provider( which is currently Bell). I feel for all the employees affected by the loss of Canada am. I really wish they would bring back Bev, Marci and Jeff (even though he’s retired!). They knew how to do it best!! This new show is too “fluffy” and will never get my viewing time. I give it 6 months max.

  15. So much for CTV’s new approach to morning television – Your Morning show is awful. What were the CTV network execs thinking. Just throw in some of The Social, ET Canada,, Twitter Facebook and the weakest news team in Canada. What demographics. This is a total embarrassment and an insult to everyone’s intelligence.
    Ben Mulroney is way overexposed on CTV and his constant mugging on camera is annoying. Melisa Grelo needs to tone it down and stay on The Social, in a time slot I don’t watch. And please, Kelsey McEwen on the weather turn the LA Weather girl perkiness off. I watch morning TV to get the news and be somewhat amused but not overwhelmed with schmaltz. Quite frankly the CP24 format with Todd Vander Haieden had way more new content and personality.
    I understand that the Canada AM format was worn out and needed tweeking and went downhill with the departure of Seamus O’Regan who at least had the chops of a real reporter.
    I am switching channels and most of the people I talk to lately of all age levels.
    I want real news, meaningful guests, real weather and industry specialist. Two thumbs down CTV #Your Morning is a stinker!

    • This is exactly how I feel, Tom could not have said it better for me. I’ve given this show almost 2 months. I hate it! Ben Mulroney and his peevish, childish mini-tantrums, the lack of local traffic and weather (I miss Anwar), the lack of real journalism and real stories…. I am signing off this show until you bring back a proper show. I too really enjoyed watching CTV News Channel over the summer. This show is just simply insulting.

    What a disappointment going from a very classy professional morning show to a very shallow entertainment production. Ben Mulroney is so full of himself, the weather person has a voice that definitely should not be on TV very annoying to listen to. Anne Marie Mediway (sorry spelling) is a very classy and professional person to deliver the news as she did in the evening ,too bad she ended up with these non performers. You have lost our viewing. You had a good thing and blew it . The saying is ” if not broken don’t fix it”.

    I do not like this show. I really am trying. Where did sports go? Too much weather way too much. Some segments way to long on topics I am not interested in. I am on the verge of leaving a channel I have watched over 30 years. I just miss Bev. Where is she? No one is better or more classy than Jeff with weather. The social media angle is not working. Why take the social and make morning news. Could we not have stayed the course with adding some updates?.

  24. I was annoyed to say the least when Canada AM was cancelled. Used the summer months to get over my grudge. But after attempting to watch ‘Your Morning,’ that bitter and twisted feeling began to re-emerge! Such a disappointment. I tried to talk my way through it. Maybe I am not the intended market anymore. But if it is the younger demographics CTV is aiming for, I don’t know if the executives have looked lately but the younger generations don’t watch anything on TV anymore! It is the folks that were raised on the invention of colour television that get up early to watch morning news that are still tuning in. Weather girls that are channeling their inner valley girl, or anchor personnel that look like Ken and Barbie dolls don’t cut it! There is a lack of credibility. It is like they are playing news broadcasters !
    CBC it is.

  25. I couldn’t agree more with everyone’s comments. This show is not only terrible but continues the downward spiral! What I am enjoying is watching the jockeying for position as each woman, with the exception of Anne Marie is trying to be the host. Particularly Mellissa Grelo who is the main reason I can’t stand The Social. The weather girl has got to go. Her motor mouthed high pitched screech is so grating and why on earth do they put her on the desk with the others as she too can’t stop talking. I think it would have been much better had they just added Ben Mulroney to Canada am when Jeff Hutchison retired. This shoe just makes me miss Canada am all the more.

I flip between CBC and Global now, which means I am also going to their website during the day to get my news. So long CTV, it was great watching you for 40 years.

    I turned on Canada AM every morning before work. I received all the necessary news, sports and weather to start my day. I really liked the personalities of the crew. They were like the folks who lived on your street. I could only stomach the new shop two mornings. I found it plastic, boring and not what I want to see first thing in the morning. The decision makers who pulled the plug on AM should be fired.

    This morning show resembles an American format and lacks Canadian content. We don’t need a Hollywood show at breakfast time. Bring back Bev Thompson and Marci Ian and come back down to being a great morning show.

  31. I watched a couple of times and I can’t stand this group of testosterone filled teenage personalities. So much big hair and egos that go through the roof. Bev, Marci and Jeff are 5 star professionals who always got our day off to a great start. Bring the Bell Execs in front of the camera and take calls on air if you want to bring your ratings up. That would prove to be a disaster for Bell. Alexander Graham is rolling over in his grave in disgust.

    My husband and I agree with the above comments panning the new show replacing Canada AM. Set is terrible with too many plastic women for starters. We had come to expect intelligent hosts after watching this program for 40 years, coming to love Bev, Marci and Geoff as well as Anwar. Was great getting hard news as well as some gentle humour as well. Geoff’s videos were priceless as well. Bring them back. Have been watching CBC after watching new show for three days at beginning and hating it and the thing is we have stayed watching CBC after 9:00 a.m. so that the following programs on CTV have lost more viewers. I don’t know anyone who likes the new program and whoever’s idea this was needs to be fired!

    • Frankly disappointed. Boring and lacking in fair news coverage. Do not like the white blocks on the weather map, where’s the map.

What happened to common sense. Bring back CANADA AM and your viewers will come back.

  43. Anne Marie is a talented, classy & professional journalist but the others including Ben have to go. Please get someone to match up with her talent and perhaps this show can be salvaged. Ben and the others are in way over their heads and may be ok for a show like e talk where it is scripted for everyone but not for a morning program show. Ben needs to learn about not cutting off his co-host….it is so tacky.

Not all 35 and younger are dim witted, as not to notice the lack of depth, personalities, and well just fluff, oh yes there is the inordinate amount of weather coverage, and of course your formula for placing the same people on every show that you produce, there is much more, and possibly (did someone really have to tell you) better talent out there….go and find them, replace your head of programming, then maybe you’ll have a shot at producing some shows that have good content, that are stimulating, thoughtful and thought provoking… Said enough, because you Bell Media haven’t been saying a thing….

    Your Morning is not even close to Canada AM. I really mi as that show. It was the highlight of my day. Now this show seems as if all the women are in a hurry, talking so fast which reminds me of a gaggle of geese. Even the forecast seems like a rush of words, like a race to see how quick it can be said. Slow down. You are not in America, you are in Canada and you sound like the women on The Talk. This isn’t a compliment by any means.

  69. My mother said give everyone/everything a second chance and I did just that by viewing Your Morning for a second time. I’m sorry this program is not gelling and the execs at Bell need to take this “New Formula to the news” off life support. The idiosyncrasies of the hosts are just getting more annoying especially Ben Mulroney and Melisa Grelo who need to go back to their other gigs on the network that suit their in your face TV presences. And please replace Stacey McEuen with her voice that is like nails on a blackboard and every day hows how dumb she is about the world. How can someone in the media admit online that she did not know Leonard Cohen was a Canadian duh!
    It seems everyone on this blog wants credible news delivered honestly, personable and straight up (Think Tom Van der Hayden), to be informed on social, economic, medical and movie reviews without “The View” type bickering of the over coiffed, over dressed hosts.
    From the start of the program with its jarring theme noise to the inane banter and the weak graphics. Remember 20% of men are colour blind and baby blue scrolls are unreadable.
    My mother also told me admit to your mistakes and start over. Time to go back to the drawing board guys!

  75. I am very concerned with the logic used by head producers. I also think if they actually sat down to watch the show at home, the high-pitched noise being emitted from the women would turn any stomach. Way too much makeup as well– are their complexions that bad to warrant that much war paint?
    My last point is; if I ever watch the show again, I only hope there is enough toilet paper left on the roll. Blah!

    I agree with the above reviews, my only hope is that you are listening. I am so disappointed. “Your morning” show is not my morning show and only speaks to the lack of education in journalism, the superficial and detached prevalence apparent in society.
    Dumb down is a great word used in a review, it says it all. I feel better now that I have read these reviews, clearly there are many people with a brain in their head.
    The population consists more of a higher percentage of those who are aging. What are you thinking?
    Canada AM had meaning, it was a show with well educated, experienced journalists, who consistently reported the news with professionalism. Bev, Marci, Jeff and Anwar appeared like a Family who I enjoyed bringing into my living room and wanted to be a part of. It would be safe to say from reviews others felt the same way.
    They demonstrated empathy (a rare quality) when interviewing those who have been faced with adversity.
    They spoke with clarity and most importantly as real people who most could relate to.
    Youth and good looks are highly overrated in today’s media which is reflected by a lack of intelligence and inexperience, the talk mostly consisting of me, me and more me. “Like” “Eh” “OMG”
    This show is actually worse than City Tv’s breakfast television. I would rather read a dictionary than watch either. Bring back the same format of Canada AM and the journalists who have life experience and are educated, otherwise your ratings will hopefully continue to plummet. In my opinion that is a good sign because this kind of show is unacceptable and an insult to intelligence, furthermore, a disgrace to Toronto and the province we live in.

    Today trying to give it another chance but after 5 minutes watching Ben playing with the girls reminds me of Sesame Street show for kids.
    I get more Canadians news from the American channels. Please get Bev. Back

  79. I do have one positive comment regarding the replacement of the great morning show Canada AM with the drivel called Your Morning – I now have 2 1/2 hours in the morning to get my housework done. No TV for me till after 10:00 AM (I live in the maritimes.)

  80. Terrible show. Who needs all of this glamour stuff in the morning….we need news. Although, we do not need weather every five minutes!!!!
    Totally unprofessional and boring.

    Canada AM was so well done, so interesting, with true professionals giving us news and weather, interesting interviews covering current subjects. I also miss the connection between Marci, Jeff and Bev, they gave us many laughs to start the day.
    You lost a gem of a show CTV!

    Have switched to CBC

    Canada AM follower for years. “Your Morning” is just eTalk at a different time. Can’t take anyone on the show seriously. I gave it a try, no more. There are so many viable options, this is not one of them.

    i cannot sit quietly any longer – what a mess – your replaced professional reporting with a bunch of young people, all with very important opinions on the most ridiculous topics. worst of the worst is ben mulroney – has an opinion on everything and tries to come across as an expert on everything. i watched canada a.m. for years and always looked forward to the broadcast – please take a few moments and read these comments from people who care so much to take the time to let you know. i’m looking at other channels to get my morning info but would love to tune back in to a true morning/news show like canada a.m.

    Just can’t do it, what a pitiful excuse for a morning show!! A bunch of late 20-somethings trying to be reined in by “Mom and Dad”. The “Interns” Kelsey, Lindsey and Melissa, are totally fascinated with simplest of things that mean absolutely nothing to the rest of the world. Ben and Anne-Marie have their hands full and at times you can see how totally frustrated and exasperated they are. It’s like CTV went out to find the most self-absorbed, ignorant and inane television new comers to see if they can make it in the real world…..sadly, they cannot. CTV/Bell Media, axe this show and do yourself a favour before its too late….wait maybe for some it already is, I know today was the last time I’m watching!!

    Your station is as bad as it gets! And today was the tops. The Mrs. Kelsey Mc. Ewens in horrible dress, and stupid hair, is talking about how all living things are farting, and if they are farthing and how mush Are you STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess there is no intellect in this station. Is talk about weather too much for you???????

  85. Your morning…seriously? The definition of SHIT SHOW. Do the hosts even have an education? Then there is the make up, the clothes. They look like no one told them they were going to be on TV. Train Wreck

    I waited this long, but I can’t stand the show, who cares whether Ben Mulroney likes snow or not. There is nothing serious about this show. These people are like parrots and seem not to really understand the subject matter. Really too bad they changed it. Terrible!

  87. Cannot stand your morning – where is the news, way way way tooooo much weather and ridiculous chitter chatter on nothing important. I don’t believe most Canadians want to watch an entertainment show in the morning. Plus really really can’t stand Ben Mulroney or really the other co-hosts either. It sucks because I really enjoy a good morning news program.
