What do grandmothers, addicts and celebrities have in common? All of them seek care at Columbia and Weill Cornell Hospitals, the crown jewels of the prestigious New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. For a full year ABC cameras had unprecedented access to document the mayhem and the miracles that occur daily in these world class facilities. “NY Med” follows the irascible, compassionate and, at times, cocky attending surgeons who try to change the trajectory of lives by relying on sheer medical brilliance and a healthy dose of old fashioned good luck. The eight-part series takes a candid look at how cutting edge medicine often makes the difference, although even the best surgeons can find themselves flirting with disaster. The raucous ER staff trade jibes with strong-willed New Yorkers in moments that can be poignantly heartbreaking or off-the-hook hilarious. These doctors spend far more time with each other than with their families, developing complicated and intertwined personal relationships. “NY Med” premieres Tuesday, July 10 at 10:00 pm ET/OTon the ABC Television Network.

Shot around the world at the actual locations with cinematic style and infused with an indie-band soundtrack, “Final Witness” creates an unforgettable look at the human psyche at its darkest.

Chris’ heart is racing – for more than one reason: Not only does he discover that he has this week’s first one-on-one date with Emily, he’s jolted when he learns that he must attempt to scale a building with her if he’s to spend any quality time with the Bachelorette, and when she surprises him with a performance by country star Luke Bryan. Meanwhile 12 men will be grilled by Emily’s friends, who will report back to her about who they think would be a good match for her and a good stepfather for Ricki. Emily surprises Arie with a flight to Dollywood for a special day on which the park is open only to them, and in a total shocker to Emily, her idol, country music legend Dolly Parton, gives the couple a private concert. But it all ends at a dramatic cocktail party when some of the men come clean about whether they’re ready to step up and be a stepfather, which sends shock waves through the group — and Emily decides to do something about it — on “The Bachelorette,” Monday, May 28 at 8:00 pm ET on the ABC Television Network.
