Creator Bill Lawrence
has said in interviews that he wanted this show to be almost like a live-action The Simpsons
(1989), not only in the style of humor, but also with the numerous high-profile guests and a fairly large cast of recurring characters. In a 2006 episode, J.D. commented that Grey's Anatomy
(2005) was so realistic, that "it's almost like someone was watching our lives and put it on television", a joke borrowed from an early '90s The Simpsons (1989) episode, saying the same of Dinosaurs
(1991). See more
