I’ve always wondered why MeTV and the other classic TV channels don’t have any medical shows such as Dr. Kildare, Ben Casey, Marcus Welty MD and Trapper John MD.

I'm sick of those shows.
(this was a joke, ICYMI)

Well, at least there's House on H&I! And doesn't Bones McCoy count? Damn it Jim, he's a doctor! BTW, it's Welby not Welty!
