I began watching it again last year after a many year absence. It's quite good again.

Save ER...we love it! Make the new Dr. Zalenski a regular. He is quite funny.

I hope they will let it go. After Laura Innes left, it just didn't seem credible as a real workplace any more. For most of its run, although the focus was on the ER, you were also aware of the rest of the hospital and its administrative structure and how they impacted the action in the emergency room. For the last couple of seasons, you are only aware of doctors who seem adrift and inexperienced. I really like Leland Orser (Dubenko), Pratt has grown on me and I even like Morris, but it's time to end this.

I happen to agree. Even my daughter gave up a few years ago.
Okay, people, if you admit that you haven't been watching in years, how can you comment on whether or not the show should be cancelled? Seriously.

It was horrible a few years ago with the Carter/Kem/Africa/helicopters crap...but it's come back strongly, and is compelling again. Character development, interesting patients, the whole deal. You should tune back in.

Why don't they just cancel "ER". For God's sakes, the show has been on the air for a long time.

It's competing with Grey`s Anatomy. Nuff said.

Like Law & Order, ER continues to be able to bring in new charachters that are interesting and grow on you just when you think it is over when others are on their way out. It's ever evolving, and I will always love it.

This show should have been cancelled years ago. If it were on any netwok other than NBC, it would have been. And it's not in direct competition to Grey's Anatomy, nor is a threat to any other show with a prayer. This week it got beat by a WAT rerun and it was new, so obviously the new characters are not hitting it off with viewers.
And what's new about the show anyway? It's still the same Maura Tierney Sulking Hour it's been for the past 7 years anyway.

ER is not directly competing with Grey's Anatomy and in no way is it serious cometititon for that show. Grey's Anatomy is one of the highest-rated dramas out there right now. ER is an aging show that would have been cancelled years ago if NBC hadn't been in the ratings crapper for so long. It was beat by a WAT rerun this week. It's not a threat to any show with a prayer.

The only reason this one hangs on is due to NBC's bad fortune. The ratings are worse than they have ever been, so clearly the viewers aren't sticking around for the new characters.

Unfortunately, due to the strike I think we will see one more season.
