The Mob Doctor - FOX fall season
Premiers September 17th
Premise: A surgeon, Dr. Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro), juggles her medical career and her ‘undergrown’ job with Chicago mafia. Dr. Grace owes a debt to mob boss Constantine Alexander (William Forsythe) for when she asked for help on her brother’s behalf.
Good: It’s a fast paced medical drama combined with the mob. What’s not to like? Plus, we have Jordana Spiro from ‘My Boys’ and I’m interested to see how she handles moving from comedy to drama.
Contenders: They have the Monday night at 9 slot against comedy duo from CBS (2 broke girls and Mike and Molly), two reality shows from ABC and NBC (Dancing with the stars and The voice) and CW’s Gossip Girl. It’s a very varied night, but against the other drama in the list I think Mob Doctor has a good chance. Now, against comedy and talent shows? Well I do hope it creates a following.
Verdict: For me it’s a watch, it looks like the kind of soap/drama everyone needs to watch.
Other Fox new shows: Ben and Kate, The Goodwin game, The Mindy project
