ESPN's new morning show, Get Up!, has only been on the air for a little more than a month. Early reviews are not great, though, and the ratings haven't been very good, either.

The result: Changes could be coming - and quickly. The show reportedly only has until the fall to prove its worth.

The Sporting News has a full update on the status of ESPN's morning show, which is co-hosted by Mike Greenberg, Michelle Beadle and Jalen Rose (a trio that's reportedly making roughly $15 million combined).

"Significant changes" could be made both in front of and behind the camera by the fall, according to the report.

From Sporting News:

The result? The expensive "Get Up" is on a short leash, sources said. No, it won't be canceled this year. But if the show doesn't jell by the Sep. 6 kickoff of the NFL season, look for changes in front of and behind the camera, sources said.

Football season is when sports talks shows make their money. "Get Up" show-runners might add a fourth football expert alongside Beadle and Rose, who also co-star on "NBA Countdown." Possible candidates include ESPN football analysts Ryan Clark, Booger McFarland and Damien Woody.

TV experts have been skeptical of the show from the start. It hasn't done much to prove those critics wrong yet.
