This series is sort of like the Batman episode "Paging the Crime Doctor" except Matthew Thorne is a woman, and the show takes place in Chicago instead of Gotham City.

Not sure I see a reason to watch this show.
A. a doctor/hospital show
B. a mafia show
Somehow someone came up with the idea of blending Nurse Jackie with the Sopranos and ended up with this. Why should I care about any of these characters lives? And for how long does the main character stay indebted to the mob? Dumb question. Once you're in, you're in for life...reruns anyone?

animal practice is hilarious. the nurse with the ponytail on her head is great. in fact all the stars are funny. everyone should watch one episode and see what i mean

"The Mob Doctor" (FOX)
Jordana Spiro has charm to spare, and TV has been a little less whimsical since her TBS comedy "My Boys" came to an end two years ago. But Spiro's winning ways cannot save the clunker that is "The Mob Doctor." The predictable drama follows Dr. Grace Devlin (Spiro) as she juggles her day job at a bustling Chicago hospital with her moonlighting gig as a doctor to suspiciously wounded criminals. Grace has to help these rogues to bail out her brother, who is indebted to the mob. At a glance, this sounds cool. Gangsters are always intriguing. But on "The Mob Doctor," they are walking clichés and so is Grace. In the end, this show is "ER" meets "Wiseguy" in all the wrong ways.
"The Mob Doctor" premieres Monday, Sept. 17, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
