17 Iconic TV Shows Turning 25 This Year
It’s no secret that people love medical dramas. They make up like 50% of everything on TV (or so it feels like!). In 1994, the ultimate medical drama premiered and TV was never the same. There would be no Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, or House without the legacy ER provided. The George Clooney-fronted drama follows an emergency room staff in a (where else?) Chicago hospital. The series ran for 15 years, making it the longest-running American medical drama in history. Not only does it have that distinction, but it also launched several high profile careers and spawned plenty of similarly structured shows. There is no end to the impact that ER has had on dramatic television in the last 25 years and we’re sure we’ll be saying the same when it turns 50!
