ER continues to find ways to captivate its audience, as more than 11 million viewers turned in for Season 13. This season, Dr. Tony Gates (John Stamos) returns to the ER, now as an intern, with a straightforward attitude and a complicated personal life. He is Dr. Gallant?s opposite: brash, cocksure, with a bad-boy past, and maybe the right prescription for Neela?s (Parminder Nagra) broken heart. Further shaking up the ER, Weaver (Laura Innes) decides to leave County General for a career move you wouldn?t expect. And the profound dramas of the outside world continue to make their way to the ER, including a hostile patient whose real condition is a secret even to himself, homeless children who escape to a magic world of their own making, and a Christmas miracle. Then again, miracles happen every day at County General.
Healing is teamwork and science. Instant decisions and best guesses. Joy one moment, tragedy the next, 24/7 readiness. It is learning, always learning. County General is a teaching hospital.

ER-TheSeries Combining the extraordinary talents of award-winning producer John Wells, best-selling author Michael Crichton, and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television, the venerated series explores the inner workings of an urban teaching hospital and critical issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its emergency room. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast, ER is one of TV's highest rated dramas.
Look who's checked in at County General: Dr. Victor Clemente arrives with a motor mouth, a load of talent and a questionable past. Imposing, no-nonsense Eve Spellman takes charge (and almost takes over) as the new nurse manager. And hunky paramedic Tony Gates proves he's more than a guy on the make. Season 12 also brings spiraling drama and suspense to the lives of ER veterans. Abby and Kovac share unexpected news. Gallant comes home from Iraq to be with Neela. Pratt goes to Darfur to work with Carter. And burn victims, stabbing victims, gunshot victims, assault victims, young and old, male and female, grateful and combative keep the ER on edge. And sometimes over the edge.
An aquarium worker with a live shark latched onto him, a blind woman and her guide companion (a miniature horse!), a college boy with an arrow in his gut (his fraternity brothers were aiming for the apple on his head). Gunshot victims. Homeless children. Cardiac cases. So many patients, so little time. Year 11 of the fast-paced series brings challenges and changes to the ER. Corday and Chen weigh work and family. Abby finds that being a good doctor is as tough as being a good nurse. Ray Barnett, doctor by day, rock star by night, arrives. Carter decides to leave. He's been there from the start, a student turned leader who picked up where Greene left off. He set the tone, provided the example. His impact will endure.
Still one of the highest-rated dramas on television, the Emmy-winning ER continues to set pulses racing in its 14th season. Created by best-selling author Michael Crichton and producer John Wells, the series centers on the medical staff of County General Hospital, where heroic doctors and nurses are faced with life-and-death decisions on a daily basis.
Honored with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, as well as 14 Emmy Awards and numerous other awards and honors, ER follows the lives of the emergency room staff and residents of County General Hospital, where the difference between life and death rests on split-second decisions, and the pressure, joy and guilt are often overwhelming. The heroic healers who live this life are as varied as the patients they treat.
How do you separate your personal life from your professional life? Not easily. And if you're on the emergency room staff of Chicago's County General Hospital, it may be impossible.
