TV show description:
Set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this drama revolves around a hospital that specializes in medical transplants. It follows the daily life-saving efforts of the doctors and staff, as well as their emotionally complex personal stories. To deal with the families of potential donors at such a low point for in their lives, and to help deal with the fears and concerns of potential recipients takes more than what most can ever appreciate.

Dr. Andy Yabionski (Alex O’Loughlin) has great skills, and as the lead organ transplant surgeon, he’s also quite the workaholic. He’s good-natured and sarcastic which works well for his bedside manner and in helping him cope with his job. In contrast, Andy’s operating assistant and best friend, Pam Acosta (Justina Machad,) has a no-nonsense approach.

Dr. Yabionski’s team includes a surgical fellow, Dr. Miranda Foster (Katherine Moennig), who is rebellious with a fiery temper. She tries, but doesn’t always live up to the excellent surgical reputation of her late father. Dr. David Lee (Daniel Henney), a surgical resident, is a womanizer who breaks hearts outside of the operating room and replaces them while in the confines of the hospital.

Ryan Abbott (Christopher J. Hanke) lacks experience as the new transplant coordinator, but oversees the crucial, intricate process of getting the organs from donor to patient. Dr. Sophia Jordan (Alfre Woodard) is the head of surgery. She takes her work very seriously and has little patience for the surgeons who don’t sacrifice as much as she does.

    excellent comments thus far. My wife and I loved the show when we could see it. Kind of hard to find it after football. Give it another chance in a different slot so you can build a regular veiwing audience. Everyone also leave your comments on CBS.com. They’ve only had a couple of comments regarding the cancellation of the show.

    Great show dealing with dramatic life and death situations. It protrays the deeply personal decisions that take place during the medical emergencies from different vantage points. The series also shows heroes who truly give of themselves so that others can live. Hopefully it won’t be cancelled. Besides being a gripping series, I think it is bringing national attention to the need for organ donations.

    I think this show is excellent. I think it needs a bit more time to find its
    place. Maybe you should change the time slot because of the Housewife
    show that is a bore at this point. I hope you keep Three Rivers.
