St. Elsewhere (1982)

The staff of St. Eligius Hospital in Boston doesn't pull off the kind of miracles seen in other medical dramas. Instead, they deal with the day-to-day realities of working at a big-city hospital. Amid the inherent drama of saving patients' lives, the show mixes in a healthy dose of dark humor, which the doctors use to cope with various situations.
