GOOD SAM, starring Sophia Bush and Jason Isaacs, premieres Wednesday, Jan. 5 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), after CSI: VEGAS completes its planned 10-episode first season. GOOD SAM is about Dr. Sam Griffith (Bush), a gifted heart surgeon who excels in her new leadership role as chief of surgery after her renowned boss, Dr. Rob "Griff" Griffith (Isaacs), falls into a coma. When Dr. Griffith wakes up months later, demanding to resume his duties, Sam is tasked with supervising this egotistical expert with a scalpel who never acknowledged her stellar talent. Complicating matters, this caustic and arrogant boss also happens to be her father. As Griff defies Sam's authority and challenges her medical expertise, the big question becomes whether this father and daughter will ever be able to mend their own relationship as expertly as they heal the hearts of their patients.
The multiple Emmy Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE makes its eagerly anticipated return with a special two-hour premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 5 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) with Emmy Award-nominated host Phil Keoghan.
