Posted on September 19, 2019 at 6:45 am

Carol was a high school science teacher who always wanted to be a doctor. When her husband left her, she decided to make her dream come true at age 50. Patricia Heaton sparkles as Carol, whose unabashed enthusiasm, empathy, and real-life experience overcome the skepticism of her fellow interns. The cast includes Ito Aghayere as Carol’s demanding Chief Resident and Kyle MacLaughlan as the senior doctor on the staff. It will be on CBS Thursdays at 9:30 (8:30 Central).

“You Give Me Fever” — When Carol treats an elderly patient with a fever, Mrs. Zahn (Carol Mansell), and her tests are inconclusive, Carol must find a way to work around Dr. Jacobs and hospital policy to take extra time to observe her. Also, Daniel is embarrassed when his fellow interns find out that he doesn’t know how to do the basic medical skill of drawing blood, on CAROL’S SECOND ACT, Thursday, Oct. 3 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
