end of an era


I long ago stopped watching ER, but for years it was appointment TV for me. I loved that it was set in Chicago and would enjoy listening in for the "Chicago" things. (My favorite was the mention of the piano store near the expressway. They got the location wrong, but it was too funny when it was dropped in.)

The Tribune has a good article about ER and it's ties to Chicago. I still remember walking out of class and seeing Clooney filming by the restaurant (long gone now) near Hilton off Michigan Ave.  And the day we saw a bunch of cast members filming near the bridge.

I'll be watching the finale on Thursday because it seems like the right thing to do. It's also sad that it is the end of an era for not only the show but programming at 9pm. In the fall, I WILL NOT be watching Leno.

its odd that er is ending. i haven't watched in years, but it was a big deal for me back in the day. then it just became this thing that was always on, and now it won't be there. and leno will be there instead. ugh.

i'll be watching on thursday. i gave that show some good years of my life, gotta see the ending. :)

I feel the same way... I have to see the ending. Because for at least 5 years (if not more), I watched religiously.

Leno=bad on so many levels

LENO IS ON MY LIST. He's killing FIVE shows, and I'm pretty sure I know what one of them is. >:-/

Ahem. Yes, ER ending does make me feel nostalgic! I don't watch anymore either, but I'll definitely watch on Thursday.

NOOOOOOO. Leno makes me sad. It's no wonder I watch about 2 hours of programming on NBC. Excluding the local morning news.
