Boston EMS Will Premiere Saturday Night
Boston EMS is a five-part series that follows Boston’s first responders as they tend to emergency calls around the city. The premiere’s major storylines will include a hit-and-run car accident that killed a cyclist, first responders searching for a patient possibly hit by an Acela train, and a man dragging himself from a car just before it catches on fire. ABC also promises a heart-warming segment about two EMT’s giving a homeless man a “surprise gift.”
If Save My Life‘s premiere—which focused on a shooting in Charlestown, among other cases—is any indication, Boston EMS promises to be a success. According to an ABC report, ratings for Save My Life gained a summertime non-sports viewership high for its 10 p.m. time slot. About 3.5 million people watched the premiere, and there was a 9 percent viewership hike from the first half hour to the second.
All future episodes of Boston EMS will air Saturdays at 9 p.m. on ABC, with Save My Life following at 10 p.m.
