It was an excellent show. For some reason I never got into the habit of ER but I think this one shows great promise.

It is in the ER catagory in the area that it's set in a hospitol. ER focuses more on the...ER, surprisingly. GA , after one ep, seems to be more about the residents lives , mixed with doc stuff.

Good cast. I liked the show and will make a point to watch it.

It is another hospital show with, intensity, meaningful music, interns with attitudes, better looking nurses than in any hospital I have ever been, and lots of drama. Maybe I will see it one more time.

I think this one might have a chance. The shots of Seattle in HD were incredible.

Haven't seen the show yet (have it on TIVO), but can believe the nurse comment. Just check out CSI; I'm sure the forensic investigators at your local lab are that gorgeous.

I liked it. I've been a big ER fan since the beginning and I think this has the potential to be as good as it was.

BTW, I don't know what Yiozik was watching but all the nurses looked like regular people to me.

Nice PQ of Seattle. I think this show may make it. Why do interns have to go through an elongated " Hell Week " ??? I want my doctor well rested !!

i saw the first ~3 minutes of it...seemed kinda cool...i have it on the RTV so i'll prolly watch it this week some time...as for the music, i remember the one promo had a song from The Postal Service and i stopped watching last night (the end of Desparate Housewives bled into it) right when they started playing the Rilo Kiley song (at least i'm prettysure it was them)...very promising indeed .

I'm still trying to figure out the logic behind 48 hour shifts ... Personally, I'd much rather have a doctor that's had a good uninterrupted 7-8hr sleep cycle. But what do I know

My wife made the same comment on the shift lengths. You might want a doctor fresh on their sleep, but would you want to know that your info on what is going on with your case to be retold 5 times in 48 hours? Plus, they are interns on call so they don't stay up for 48 hrs. straight but basically live in the hospital for 2 days. I believe firefighters do the same thing although I am not sure how long their "on call" period is.

uh, if you want to be a dr. do NOT watch any medical dramas. you may get the idea that nurses are competent and motivated to do their job, attendings are crabby but generally caring, you have a social life and occasional sex, and work is full of drama and not 99% tedium and exhaustion.

The overall ratings for Grey's Anatomy were up slightly from Boston Legal levels. The 18-49 ratings were up substantially.

Lusty debut for ABC's 'Grey's Anatomy'

medialifemagazine.comThe network knew that it would pull a huge audience for the return of Desperate Housewives last night after four weeks of reruns. So it premiered the Seattle-based medical drama Grey's Anatomy Sunday after Housewives, and the show delivered a promising debut.

In the 10 p.m. timeslot usually occupied by Boston Legal, Anatomy averaged a 7.2 rating among viewers 18-49 according to Nielsen overnights, 46.9 percent better than the 4.9 Legal has averaged season-to-date. The show was able to steal some viewers from NBC's competing Crossing Jordan, which averaged a 3.7 rating, down 11.9 percent from its 4.2 season-to-date average.

Of course Anatomy benefited from having Housewives as its lead-in. The show was the night's highest-rated among 18-49s with a 10.7 average, slightly higher than its 10.3 season-to-date average, though down from an 11.0 rating for its last original episode on Feb. 20. Grey's retained 67 percent of its lead-in. That's not a great number80 percent is considered the minimum for successbut when the show is as disproportionately popular as Housewives, 67 percent isn't awful.

Grey's averaged 16.2 million total viewers compared with 24 million for Housewives. "Legal" averaged 12.6 million total viewers thus far this season, about 30 percent less than "Grey's" drew. The show's 18-49 rating dipped just 9 percent from its first half-hour to its second, another good indicator of whether people will tune in next week. Grey's is scheduled to run three more weeks before Boston returns.

Well I've actually worked a 36 hour shift or three ... I wouldn't have wanted myself to make potentialy life threatening decisions beyond the 16 hr point ... Granted I was more or less awake for the entire 36hr stretch. Futhermore, it usually took at least three recovery days before I began to feel "normal" again. But again, what the heck do I know?

It was a nice middle ground between Scrubs (a favorite of mine) and ER (stopped watching about 10 years ago). A lot less silly than Scrubs, but not as serious as ER. I happened to be watching with my mother-in-law, and she didn't seem to like it as well. She kept commenting how things couldn't really be like that in a hospital. I think for her, ER = plausably real, Scrubs = pure fantasy, but she couldn't really put Grey's Anatomy to one side or the other -- it moved around a bit. Anyway, I'll watch next week but I'm sure she isn't alone in feeling a bit disturbed by it (comments like "they wouldn't let someone operate by themselves on the first day," and "they wouldn't really be that mean to them").

I asked my wife about that stuff. She was a nurse for 30 years in a major DC area hospital. She said the way they treated the interns was fairly realistic. They don't do those 36 to 48 hour shifts all the time but most do the first few times they work.

As a viewer I really don't care how close to reality it is, I just liked to be entertained. This show was entertaining.

I watched the first 20 minutes and will watch the rest on Tivo. However, I have to agree with everyone in respect to how the nurses and attendees looked. They were average looking girls, but it wasn't as though women who look like them don't work in hospitals. Maybe, I'm not sure, only guessing here, but I wasn't tipsy at all and that probably resulted my opinion of the women.

The few times I've been in a hospital (most recently Detroit area) I thought they had a good share of pretty nurses and doctors. Maybe I'm just easily attracted to nurses for some reason.

I think the two blond ones were well above average looking.

Having said that, which is the male nurse you had your eyes on?

Unfortunately the broadcast came through choppy for me and my fiancee and thus we missed parts of the show. The sound and picture kept breaking up. It was a problem with the ABC feed as it was happening during Desperate Housewives too. Hopefully next week will be better so I can watch it in HD instead of SD.

I enjoyed what I saw though...

Good looking nurses . . . don't remember.

Good looking doctors . . . at least one. Meet Katherine Heigl, voted one of the top 100 sexiest women in the world by FHM readers this year. She plays Izzie Stevens, a "small-town girl who grew up dirt poor and, in spite of paying for her medical career by modeling, still struggles with her self-esteem." (TvTome)

LOL ... I wonder if the "nazi" doctor was an homage to the "Christmas Nazi." Now all we need is another preggers Clair to show up.
