‘Monday Mornings’: Doctors, you know the types

It sounds like a nightmare. You are responsible for the death of someone, somehow, and the remorse is churning your soul and burning on your face. How did this happen? A loud, cold voice is speaking to you in front of everyone you know, shaming and demoralizing you, rubbing your nose in your bitter disgrace.

For the doctors at Chelsea General Hospital on TNT’s “Monday Mornings,” though, it’s just another Monday morning. The new medical drama from David E. Kelley and Dr. Sanjay Gupta revolves around the weekly sessions when doctors are singled out for their mistakes in front of their colleagues. They stand on a stage while the hospital chief of staff, Dr. Harding Hooten, berates them. “Do you do anything other than prescribe Extra Strength Tylenol,” Harding asks a doctor responsible for a death in Monday night’s premiere, at 10. Played by a stern Alfred Molina with snakelike eyebrows and a fierce gladiator haircut, he’s a waking horror.
