    The people who does these press release for ABC should get paid really well. They can really twist the words and ratings to look like like a success. lol When did they start targeting 2-11 age group?

    The chomping of gum, hair flipping and bad jokes while treating a patient is totally unprofessional and has no place in a hospital. And what a way to open a series, an erection problem from drugs and the treatment of is something personal and private between doctor and patient, is it not? How much are they paying these people? Free treatment? I don’t get it. Maybe its a NYC thing I dunno, just glad I don’t live anywhere near there and wont be watching again.
