18 Medical Dramas That Failed While ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Succeeded
TV execs love them some medical drama, but not every doctor show succeeds like Grey's Anatomy. In fact, over a dozen (like NBC’s Trauma, pictured here) have flatlined since the ABC hit’s 2005 premiere.
To make this list, we consulted the list of American medical dramas on Wikipedia and limited it by the following criteria: 1) it had to have been more drama than comedy; 2) it had to have taken place in a medical center, a hospital, or at least an ambulance; 3) its protagonist had to have treated live patients (as opposed to examining dead bodies); and 4) it had to have been canceled.
Pour one out for the following failed medical dramas.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 airs on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
