'ER' to court former stars for final season
We might just have the writers' strike to thank for bringing George Clooney back to the ER! Yep, you read that right; NBC, facing a shortened development season brought on by the 100-day labor dispute, is in the final stages of renewing ER for a 15th season next fall. The reprieve has prompted executive producers John Wells and David Zabel to make ambitious plans for what (finally) appears to be the drama's last season. "We want to revisit characters that have existed on the show over the years and say where they are now," says Zabel of stars like Clooney (Doug) and Julianna Margulies (Carol). "We'd love to get them all back in some way, but that doesn't mean we're going to. But we're gonna try."

He's already guaranteed a visit by at least one alumnus: Noah Wyle will reprise his role as Dr. Carter for four episodes next season. Goran Visnjic (Kovac) is also expected to make a return engagement. "The toughest will be getting Tony Edwards because his character is dead," says Zabel, laughing. That's a little tricky, but there are ways to do it that we've thought about. Even if it were like a lost episode from 1996 featuring him and Wyle."

In the meantime, Zabel will keep the ER buzzing for the remaining six outings this season by bringing on Aida Turturro (The Sopranos) for a three-week stint as a patient and adding a hot new doc (possibly an unknown actor from Australia) who's supposed to make Dr. Gates (John Stamos) look like a plain white-coat. "He'll be a sexy rake, a devil you can't resist," explains Zabel, adding, "A dynamic new character has the ability to motivate everybody, though it's easy to get excited about next season considering it will be the last."

Has ‘ER’ Jumped the Shark?
Should “ER” stay or should it go?

At the start of the season, producers of the long-running hospital drama had planned to end the series in May, but NBC appears to want a fifteenth season. The network has been in talks with Warner Bros. for weeks, and on Wednesday trade publications reported that a renewal looked likely.

In a column last week, Marc Berman, a reporter for MediaWeek, said that NBC’s likely renewal of “ER” was a classic example of the network’s “over-reliance on former big hits.” So TV Decoder posed a question to TV industry watchers: is NBC making the right decision?

Michael Ausiello, a columnist for TV Guide, said that NBC really had no choice.

“The fact is, even though the show’s ratings are in free-fall mode, it’s still performing better than most of the network’s other one-hour dramas,” he said.

But Mr. Ausiello said he was not especially happy about the decision.

“It always makes me sad when a show I used to love overstays its welcome. And ‘ER’ is definitely starting to overstay its welcome,” he said.

Shari Anne Brill, a senior vice president for the media agency Carat, speculated that Warner Bros. had lowered its license fee per episode.

“Maybe NBC got a great deal to renew it,” she said. “Remember when NBC had to pay them over $13 million per episode in the late ’90’s?”

Ms. Brill said that the drama ― which has turned over its entire cast in 14 years on the air ― still attracts upscale, educated viewers. She also noted that NBC is in desperate need of dramas, citing “Heroes” as the network’s only new and successful show. “Law & Order” continues to chug along, but the franchise is even older than “ER.”

In a podcast today, Mr. Berman said the “ER” renewal would be a mistake.

“At this point, it is down so much from the past. Just from last year, it’s down by double digits. They really need to end it,” he said.
