  1. Omg I watched about 10 minutes of the Resident last night following MKR as I was too lazy to switch the channel… and it was laughably bad. Really poor dialogue from good actors… and it’s shot so pretentiously… I couldn’t believe what I was watching. As a student Radiographer, this fantasy world where doctors know absolutely everything is incredibly moronic… my radiologists use Radiopaedia to look up some things on the spot when asked… they aren’t Gods armed with intelligence to rival A.I… lol.

  2. Tried The Resident….not for me…I really do not care for the female actor…did not like that other show she was in….only watched a few episodes of that…could not even get through the first one of this series.

  3. That’s a good Oscars rating for daytime, owning the afternoon. Would be interesting to see just how many were watching Dr Phil / midday movie / Judge Judy / Daily Edition against it.

      1. Sorry I didn’t realise they’re showing MKR encores (I know they often do that during various times of year with realities).

        But for many, many years Seven have had their made-for-TV movies at midday.
