Miami Medical: New CBS Show; Cancel or Keep It?

Miami MedicalLast week, CBS debuted their newest medical drama, Miami Medical. Their previous new medical show, Three Rivers, didn’t last very long. Will this new one fare any better?

Miami Medical follows the exciting lives of a group of talented surgeons who work at one of the best trauma centers in the country. The CBS drama features Lana Parrilla, Jeremy Northam, Omar Gooding, Mike Vogel, and Elisabeth Harnois.

In its first week on the air, Miami Medical attracted a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.59 million viewers. That’s not a very good performance but, in the show’s defense, a lot of network programming was down that night.

Is Miami Medical worth watching?

Last night, for episode two, the other CBS shows saw their ratings rise but Miami Medical didn’t. The doctor show actually fell instead, to a 1.4 rating and 7.1 million viewers. It ranked in first place in overall viewers and tied for first in the demo. On the downside, in the same timeslot, Numb3rs averaged a 1.8 rating and 8.27 million viewers and it’s very likely to be cancelled.

In comparison to other programming, Miami Medical looks positive but the numbers for the whole night are so bad overall that you have to wonder if CBS can make enough money to justify running expensive dramas.

CBS likely won’t make a decision about the show’s future for awhile. They’ve ordered 13 episodes and, unless the ratings take a dramatic dive, they’ll probably let them all air. It doesn’t hurt that the program’s co-executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

But, what do you think? Is Miami Medical worth your time each week? Cancel or keep it?

I really liked Miami Medical I would like to see it return Friday evenings was not a good time slot. But I could record it and watch it later when nothing else was on. Which is a lot of the time. Please bring it back.

I was sad to read that Miami Medical was cancelled. It was a great show that portrayed the good in medial trauma and doctors. it was pure family entertainment.

Looking to see what all you have cancelled, was shocked at Miami Medical being cancelled. CBS has so much filth on most of their other shows. I wonder if that is what they think the majority of us baby boomers really like that? I think all of CBS’s Monday evening should be R rated.

I love Miami Medical. Best medical show I’ve seen for years. House just turned into a silly soap opera; haven’t watched it in years. Really enjoyed Miami medical and looked forward to each new story.
