At its peak, ER attracted some 47 million viewers on any given Thursday and had its fans hooked on the heartache, heartburn and even massive heart attacks the show produced every week. After all these years Cook County General Hospital is still standing despite the helicopter crashes, bomb scares, blizzards, shootings, hostage scenarios, toxic spills, car accidents, explosions, emergency births, sudden deaths, and Haz Mat incidents.
