It was the last day that many of the doctors, nurses and other hospital favorites would work on an "ER" scene together. The routine shift change at the nurse's station, part of Thursday's two-hour finale that will bring the NBC show to a close after 15 seasons, called for 150 actors, crew members and extras and bustled with the energy that fans have loved over the years. Scott Grimes sang and cracked jokes, sometimes flubbing his lines to the dismay (or was it amusement?

Enough with reverential, self-congratulatory articles on the end of "ER." One of the legacies your paper failed to discuss is how the series failed to acknowledge the existence of Asian American doctors in a meaningful way. In Chicago, where the show takes place, 15% of physicians are of Asian descent, more than black and Latino physicians combined. Yet John Wells and company waited until the fifth season to add an Asian American regular (Ming-Na), only after casting a Croatian doctor first.

The patients at "ER's" County General Hospital weren't the only ones receiving a little TLC. In between the endless paperwork and bloody surgeries, young doctors and nurses in love -- and sometimes not -- administered a crash cart full of sexual healing to their co-workers.

Either those rumors of its grave decline were greatly exaggerated or it's made a miracle recovery. Tonight's pulsating Season 10 premiere (10 p.m., NBC) proves there is life after Anthony Edwards, George Clooney, Julianna Margulies et al. The episode, written by John Wells and directed by Jonathan Kaplan, introduces a compelling cast member and sets up several promising story lines.

"In football they say, 'Don't leave anything on the floor.' I don't feel we've left anything." -- David Zabel (Writer, executive producer, Seasons 8-15, wrote 43 episodes) -- "I would be sadder if it was limping toward the finish.
