Last night, viewers came out of the woodwork to say goodbye to NBC’s long-running drama. ER‘s series ender attracted the largest audience for a drama finale since Murder She Wrote in 1996. (It also pulled in the best demos since the conclusion of The X-Files in 2002.)

ER's Eriq La Salle8pm

  • (11.2 million, 3.6/11 in 18-49) saw its smallest audience of the season.
  • The retrospective (3.5/10) got 10.6 million warmed up.
  • (2.6/8) turned in 9 million.
  • (5 million, 1.6/5) lost 1.7 million; (4.8 million, 1./4) gave up 1.7 million.

(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY 3/30)
  • Greek (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Casey returns from her summer internship with secret plans to move out of her sorority house.” Unfortunately, she couldn’t wait to change her Facebook profile.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie blows off steam by sharing a drunken night with Alan, Herb and his neighbor after Chelsea discovers nude photos of another woman on his cell phone.” Kinda makes you wonder what has on her ex.
  • Rules of Engagement (CW, 9:30pm):  “Jeff and Audrey lie to get out of Jennifer and Adam’s dinner party in favor of a better bash.” Fondue parties are so 5 years ago.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Ryan is kidnapped and forced to betray Horatio and the team.” Cue Horatio lowering glasses in disappointment.

Love but grown tired of ER? If so, here’s your chance to simply watch last night’s highlights.

In the vet-filled episode, Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) and Doug Ross try to convince a grieving grandmother (Susan Sarandon) to let her dying grandson go. Coincidentally, there are two patients back in Chicago (one being Dr. John Carter) who are in need of organs from the 16-year-old boy.

After watching the clips, let us know what you think. Will Dr. Ross always be Seattle’s resident McSteamy?
