Dr. Sanjay Gupta: I Was Wrong About Medicinal Marijuana

Sanjay Gupta

CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta is reversing his position on medical marijuana and now endorses its use in a new essay and upcoming documentary.

"We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that," Gupta, who penned an article for Time in 2009 titled "Why I Would Vote No on Pot," writes for CNN.com. "I didn't look hard enough, until now. I didn't look far enough. ... I was too dismissive of the loud chorus of legitimate patients whose symptoms improved on cannabis.

The Monday Playlist: Monday Mornings, Robin Sparkles, a Hawaiian Remake and More

Jamie Bamber, Jennifer Finnigan

Last week, NBC's ludicrous insta-flop Do No Harm (about a Jekyll-Hyde neurosurgeon) pushed TV's medical genre beyond its melodramatic limits. Taking the completely opposite tack, and likely to get a much longer leash (this being cable), TNT's Monday Mornings (Monday, 10/9c) is a surprisingly mellow drama set at a hospital, about doctors forced to face up to their shortcomings, with an ensemble led by (trend alert?) gorgeous and flawed — though decidedly not bonkers — neurosurgeons, played by Jamie Bamber and Jennifer Finnigan.

Is David E. Kelley's Monday Mornings a Carbon Copy of Grey's Anatomy?

Monday Mornings

There are hot doctors who may have unrequited feelings for one another. Colleagues call one of the docs 007. Another doc is definitely McDreamy — and has the hair to prove it.

No, we're not talking about Grey's Anatomy. We're describing TNT's new medical drama Monday Mornings, a near carbon-copy of ABC's Seattle-based series. In David E. Kelley's new take on the medical world, doctors — including those played by Jamie Bamber, Alfred Molina, Ving Rhames and Jennifer Finnigan — in a Portland-based hospital face life-and-death decisions every day as they fight against often-impossible odds to save their patients.

Network Q&A: TBS/TNT's Michael Wright On Why He Saved Cougar Town And Plans For Next Season

Courteney Cox

Newly promoted TNT/TBS president/head of programming Michael Wright made a few new friends when he sealed a deal to pick up fan favorite comedy Cougar Town from ABC. After a quick negotiation, TBS ordered 15 episodes of the show, which will premiere its fourth season next winter. The network will also start airing Cougar Town repeats. Wright, who previously saved Southland after NBC canceled it, says there will be no changes to the sitcom. Meanwhile, over at TNT, Wright says he's eager to change the perception that the network's dramas only dabble in "self-seriousness or earnestness." Frank Darabont's L.A. Noir isn't ready to be ordered as a series, but Wright expects to air it on Sundays, where the network is specializing in genre shows like Falling Skies.
