The current logo for the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), an American commercial broadcasting television network headquartered in New York City’s Rockefeller Center, which was formed as a radio network by the Radio Corporation of America in 1926. A simplification of an earlier and more complicated logo originally created for color broadcasts, this logo was created by Steff Geissbuhler of Chermayeff & Geismar to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the network in 1986, and since then, has become one of the most recognizable logos in the world.

A brand-new medical drama is coming to NBC, “The Night Shift.” We are all familiar of their hit medical drama “ER” and with this new drama that they are going to release, will it give us the same magic that “ER” has given fans before that got them so hooked on the show and turned it into a network hit? Read on to find out about this new show.

According to Variety, “The Night Shift” revolves around the chaos that goes on inside the San Antonio Memorial Hospital where most of their doctors have served in the military and they are all working for their patients who are usually in the low-income variety to save their lives. The show was developed by Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (“Freaks and Geeks,” “Life as We Know It”).

Cast members include Jill Flint (“Royal Pains”) who plays the role of the leader, Freddy Rodriguez (“Six Feet Under”) who is the administrator, Ken Leung (“Lost”), Brendan Fehr (“Roswell”), Eoin Macken and Daniella Alonso (“Revolution”).

The medical drama will premiere on May 27, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. right after the 2-hour premiere of “America’s Got Talent.”

If you’re fond of hospital dramas like “ER” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” then this is just the perfect TV show that you should not miss tonight. One of the best things about the show, and most probably their strongest element comes from their cast, which will make everything worthwhile. Judging from its trailer, it looks like it’s the kind of medical drama that will make us happy, sad and even cry and it’s nice to see doctors doing heroic actions in the middle of chaos in the emergency room. We all know how crazy that can get.

NBC is really kicking off this season with their new shows and “The Night Shift” is definitely something that we should watch. It may just be something that we will love and also, this may also be a hit for the network if things go well.

For now, here’s “The Night Shift” trailer to get you even more excited:
