Congratulations to those who made it to the podium and thanks to everyone who played.

3. 2 pts- Scrubs
4. 2 pts- House
5. 2 pts- Nip/Tuck


6. 3 pts- St. Elsewhere
7. 2 pts-Nurse Jackie- a couple of players made an understandable mistake by saying "Nurse Betty" (which was the name of the 2000 comedy film starring Renee Zellweger).
8. 2 pts- Marcus Welby, M.D. The opening credits of this series showed the younger character in the photo riding to work on what mode of transportation? 3 bonus pts- motorcycle
9. 2 pts- Chicago Hope
10. 4 pts- Ben Casey


11. 3 pts- Hart of Dixie- This comedy-drama (which stars The O.C.'s Rachel Bilson as New York doctor who accepts a job in Alabama) airs on The CW.
12. 4 pts- City of Angels- This series, which aired on CBS  in 2000, was network TV's first medical drama with a predominately African-American cast.  The cast featured Blair Underwood, Vivica A. Fox, Hill Harper, Gabrielle Union, and a pre-SNL Maya Rudolph (pictured above)
13. 2 pts- Doogie Howser, M.D.
14. 2 pts- ER In his final appearance on the series, the character on the right unknowingly saved the life of what former colleague? 4 bonus pts- Dr. John Carter (played by Noah Wyle)
15. 6 pts- Cutter to Houston- This drama (which starred Alec Baldwin, Shelley Hack and Jim Metzler) aired on CBS during the first half of the 1983-1984 season.  A couple of players thought this was The Doctors, which is a good guess. The Doctors was Alec Baldwin's first major acting role and he appeared on the show during its final two years (1980-1982).
