A Definitive Ranking Of The Main Doctors And Nurses From “E.R.”

County General had a lot of employees.

Posted on

1. John Carter

NBC

Dr. John Carter was the longest running character in the series — and that was for good reason. Carter went through many ups and downs and never stopped being a compelling individual. He was the show at its core and filled the hole left by Anthony Edwards after his season eight departure.

2. Mark Greene

NBC

If Carter was the show, Greene was the heart of the show. The show was an ensemble, but the main focus really centered on Greene’s journey as a doctor, friend, husband, and father. Greene was the kind of guy you’d want to be your doctor and just about everyone could relate to him.

3. Luka Kovac

NBC

Kovac was sent in as the replacement to bad boy Doug Ross, and some ways arguably exceeded that character. Kovac was different from the other characters, with a super interesting background and compelling journey through his seasons on the show.

4. Elizabeth Corday

NBC

Aside from the fact that Alex Kingston is absolute gold in human form, Corday was a character worth watching. She was tough, and soft, and held her own as a woman in a highly competitive male field.

6. Peter Benton

NBC

Benton started off as a bit standoffish, but once his son was born, the character evolved completely. Benton was the perfect opposite to Greene, and gave a unique balance to the series.

7. Ray Barnett

NBC

After many of the original characters began to depart from the series, good, new characters were hard to come by. Barnett was one of those good characters — he brought a new story and personality to the show when it was in need of some new and interesting blood.

10. Jing-Mei “Deb” Chen

NBC

Dr. Chen was like a female Carter, who also happened to be Carter’s best friend. Her unexpected pregnancy was one of her best moments, and arguably one of THE best moments of the show.

15. Dave Malucci

NBC

Malucci was a character that never got the time he deserved. He had a lot of potential with his background, his med school days, and personal life but none of it was ever truly tapped. He was an amazing character who had a shot at being one of the best, but wasn’t given the time.

16. Kerry Weaver

NBC

Kerry would probably be higher on this list if she treated some of her colleagues better. She had interesting stories, but her brash, occasionally power-hungry personality made it hard for the audience to like her.

24. Tony Gates

NBC

Tony was another one of the late series additions that never really took. Stamos is a charmer, but the final seasons of the show just didn’t offer enough great story to give him a chance.

25. Simon Brenner

NBC

Brenner had a similar fate to that of Gates: He was only in the final couple of seasons, and by the time he was made a regular, the focus had returned to old favorites and Brenner got lost in the sea of returns.

26. Cleo Finch

NBC

Cleo was in the show for several years, and it's sometimes hard to remember she existed. Cleo never really had her own storylines of personality, she just happened to be Benton’s girlfriend. Even her HIV scare was brushed under the rug and forgotten about.
