Have we reached "Peak MD"? Broadcast TV could have as many as six medical dramas next season
NBC's Ryan Eggold-led drama New Amsterdam joins a crowded network medical drama field consisting of The Resident, Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor, Chicago Med and -- should it be renewed -- Code Black. "So why did the network feel the need to order up 10 cc’s of another medical drama STAT?" says Jennifer Maas of the New Amsterdam pickup. "Well, that’s a good question, as the Nielsen numbers for this genre are all over the place, meaning it could either become a hit, provide the network with steady mid-range ratings, or tread water each week."

A medical consultant on The Resident is being investigated for sexual harassment
Zachary Lutsky was accused of sexual harassment by two women when he worked on Season 2 of CBS' Code Black, and was told not to return to his job. But The Resident’s studio, 20th Century Fox TV, said “we have only recently learned of these allegations through an inquiry from a reporter. We are not aware of any claims made concerning his conduct on The Resident. We take these matters seriously and are reviewing this.” The allegations on Lutsky come as The Resident is about to tackle a sexual harassment storyline with Emily VanCamp's character.
