Life in a hospital can make for wonderful television.

Here's a look at some of our favorite medical television shows.

11. Nurse Jackie

Nurse Jackie
Nurse Jackie is a showcase for Edie Falco. She's incredible on the Showtime series.

10. St. Elsewhere

St. Elsewhere
Yup, that's Denzel Washington as part of the St. Elsewhere cast. It set the stage for future medical shows.

9. Doogie Howser, M.D.

Doogie Howser, M.D.
Barney who?!? Neil Patrick Harris shot to fame as Doogie Howser, M.D..

8. Private Practice

Private Practice
Thanks to Grey's Anatomy, the bar was set very high Private Practice. Addison and company never cleared it, but six seasons is nothing to sniff at.

7. Chicago Hope

Chicago Hope
Chicago Hope was a strong drama that only made one major mistake: it came out at the same time as ER.

6. House

House
More of a character study of one man than a look at life in a hospital, House challenged viewers each week with crazy medical cases.

Betrayal-five!

Honestly, I haven't been this happy since Christmas when I was seven years old and my father showed me how to make a snow angel. Actually, he was passed out drunk in the yard... But I did take his arms and his legs and move them back and forth... And... the paramedics said it was one of the finest snow angels that they'd ever seen. So, maybe the fact that I am the kinder, gentler Cox is every last bit of okay. Maybe it's a... a natural progression. It's not like there's any real ramifications... right?
