Chicago Hope Trivia:

Chicago Hope Hospital was on the "cutting edge" of medical technology. Many of the storylines centered around the use of a latest medical procedure which was still at the stage where it might be dangerous for the patient. Of course, usually the patient had no other alternative.

Chicago Hope began on Thursday nights (after the Sunday evening Pilot), directly opposite the "ER TV show (1994)". ER killed Chicago Hope in the ratings and was quickly moved to an hour earlier to precede ER. When that didn't work, the TV show was moved to Monday and things improved.

In the beginning, the Chicago Hope storylines were overly dramatic and a little hard for viewers to handle. By the end of the first season, the writers "toned it down" somewhat and the show became more fun to watch.

Chicago Hope was the first TV show to show the bare breasts of a female teenager during primetime. It was done in good taste, highlighting a successful reconstruction surgery and there was very little controversy.

There was also very little fanfare when Mark Harmon used the "unbleeped" word "shit" for the first time on a network TV show.
