There are a lot of references throughout the series to St. Elsewhere (1982), another popular hospital-themed drama. Kate Austin wins the "Left Anterior Descending Aorta" award for being a top notch cardiac surgeon. Stephen Furst appeared playing a vet named Elliot. On St. Elsewhere, he played Elliot Axelrod, whose father was a vet (he did not appear as his St. Elsewhere character though as Elliot Axelrod, he was killed off on St. Elsewhere). Kate quotes her mentor to be "Dr. David Demidian". Mark Craig (William Daniels), on St. Elsewhere, said that Demidian was his mentor as well. See more »

I am a real life doctor, and watching CH really makes my night. Adam Arkin is one REAL talented actor; the role he has to play is not an easy one, yet he does it so well. Mark Harmon is another hunk. Eric too does a fine job, although personally he was portrayed as a little rebellious guy, which doesn't actually work in the medic world. But soon he captures the audience.
