    The cast here is decent, especially Flint and Rodriguez, but the writing is unforgivably bad.

    The hodgepodge plot feels like an Obamacare ad rounded out with “Melrose Place” romance and “Untold Stories of the ER” weirdness. NBC would have been better off airing “Chicago Fire” repeats rather than fill this primetime slot with a summer burnoff series that’s D.O.A.

    It's hard to imagine any other reason for NBC to go ahead with a noisy, unwatchable show like Night Shift except to fill holes in its schedule.

    I'm hooked! This show has such amazing writing, acting, directing, etc..., an all around awesome series. If you're interested in veterans,I'm hooked! This show has such amazing writing, acting, directing, etc..., an all around awesome series. If you're interested in veterans, army medics, interns, and intense or funny medical situations ranging from an old person with an STD to a bus load of rangers getting in a serious bus accident, then this show is for you! And of course it offers the love triangle, I'm rooting for T and Jordan!. I look forward to every episode and hope the show does well and is renewed for a season 2. Full Review »

    I think that "The Night Shift" mix the narration typical soap opera with clinical cases, much better than Grey's Anatomy.

    The ideas used are original and the pace of each episode is great (except in a few episodes).
