TV Junkie: 'Boston Med' Premieres; Definitely Check Out 'The Green Room'
"Boston Med" premieres at 10pm on ABC - it's tonight's Must-Watch program.
Tonight's Must-Watch: There's an interesting premiere on ABC tonight at 10pm: "Boston Med". The ABC News-led series will visit Massachusetts General, Brigham and Womens Hospital, and Childrens Hospital over 8 episodes. This is a medical reality show that's done with style, without going for the cheap heartstrings or tawdry sensationalism that you'll see on shows like TLC's "Mystery Diagnosis: The Woman Who Couldn't Stop Rocking". This is about real doctors and nurses in 3 of the best hospitals in the United States doing what they do every day, and it's pretty cool.
If you like comedy and have a Showtime subscription you have to check out "The Green Room With Paul Provenza" at 8:30pm. The first two shows have been great and tonight's lineup of Andy Dick, Dana Gould, Andy Kindler, and Brendon Burns promises to deliver.
