Actor Allusion: Ioan Gruffudd who is fondly remembered as sailor Hornblower from Horatio Hornblower miniseries guest-starred in "Truth or Consequences". When Hooten fried him on stage, he refers to him several times as the Captain of his ship.
Real-Life Relative: Jennifer Finnigan (Dr. Tina Ridgeway) is married to Jonathan Silverman (Dr. John Lieberman).
Screwed by the Network: Opinions vary whether the marketing and promotion was good enough. Ratings were lower than expected, and the network opted not to renew it. However, few series gain a big audience or devoted following right from the scratch. Lots of Medical Drama geeks were intrigued and lots of people watched the show for the stellar cast or David E. Kelley's reputation. It's sad that this was not enough to merit a new season.
