The Good Doctor is an American medical drama television series based on the 2013 award-winning South Korean series of the same name. The show is produced by Sony Picture Television and ABC Studios. It follows Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join the prestigious St. Bonaventure hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, his only advocate, Dr. Aaron Glassman, challenges the skepticism and prejudices of the hospital’s board and staff when he brings him in to join the team. Shaun will need to work harder than he ever has before, as he navigates his new environment and relationships to prove to his colleagues that his extraordinary medical gifts will save lives.
In March 2018, ABC renewed the series for a second season, which premiered on September 24, 2018. The medical drama has been the undisputed freshman hit of the 2017-2018 season. It is currently averaging a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers per episode in the Nielsen Live+Same Day ratings, making it the second highest-rated show on ABC, behind only “Grey’s Anatomy.”
