With their over-the-top storylines and dishy characters, today’s medical dramas are ripe for soapy fun. We certainly can’t get enough of them. This season, the busy residents are back to save lives, marry their fellow physicians, divorce them, fall for their patients—well, you get the picture. So make an appointment with your favorite shows, and say hello to a whole new lineup of MD’s, slated for house calls this month.

New Show! The Mindy Project
One of the most buzzed about shows of the new season, The Mindy Project features creator, Mindy Kaling (The Office) as Mindy Lahiri, an OB/GYN who grew up watching romantic comedies and expects her life to be one. She wants a fairy tale ending — it’s finding its beginning that this series is about. Premieres Tuesday, September 25, on FOX.
