‘The Resident’ checks in with more jaundiced RX for medical drama

(CNN)Medical dramas are a long time TELEVISION staple, as well as though the category has actually progressed, generally present hard-working pros as simply the type of medical professional you ‘d desire in a pinch. Fox leavings from that optimistic prescription, a little, with “The Resident,” a more negative brand-new series– experiencing a severe subtlety shortage– that the network will introduce Sunday on the back of the NFL playoffs, prior to joining its Monday lineup.

    “The Resident” premieres Jan. 21 at approximately 10 p.m. ET (after playoff football) on Fox.
