About This Quiz

Think you know all there is to know about ER? Take this quiz to find out just how much you remember.

"ER," the '90s medical drama that started it all, sort of set the tone for the requirements of television doctors. Eye candy only, thank you.

Created by Michael Crichton (yes, THAT Michael Crichton... of Jurassic Park fame), the show debuted in the fall of 1994 and ran for a whopping 15 seasons and 331 episodes. The long-running series remains one of the longest running prime time television series in small screen history. The show won over 100 awards during its run and jump-started the careers of George Clooney and Noah Wyle. Several other cast members, although they had appeared in other films and series' before "ER," realized career success because of the show - think Julianna Margulies. The show showed off its star power with numerous notable guest stars as well, including Shia LeBeouf, Kirsten Dunst, Zac Efron, Eva Mendes, and Nick Offerman.

Since the show ended, other shows have tried and realized success with the same formula: handsome doctors, workplace relationships, and the exciting setting of the hospital environment.
