Emily Owens M.D. Pilot to Be Available Online Beginning October 1st

It looks like Dr. Owens gets to scrub in a little early this fall. The CW has announced that its upcoming medical dramedy  Emily Owens M.D.   will be hitting the web before it makes its television debut. Beginning on October 1st and extending through October 14th, the pilot episode will be available to stream through a variety of sources, including, Hulu, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, the CW mobile and tablet apps, and iTunes, where it will be a free download. The show, which stars Mamie Gummer as the title character, a woman that just graduated from med school hoping that adulthood will be a new beginning, is the latest in a long line of shows to be put up for early streaming. Though a majority of the pilots that have been put online this season have been comedies (The Mindy Project, Ben & Kate, The New Normal), dramas like Last Resort and Revolution have also had their series premieres released before their "official" premiere date. Last season, all three fall CW shows were released early through iTunes. There's both good and bad things about having an episode available early. While it could potentially eat into the numbers for the pilot's television debut, it increases the chance of word-of-mouth making up for that loss, though there's a possibility that people could forget about the show before another new episode airs. There have been shows that made it to another season after having their pilot early released (Hart of Dixie, Smash), though more often than not, it doesn't create enough hype and ultimately results in disappointing numbers (Awake, GCB). The official series premiere of Emily Owens M.D. airs Tuesday, October 16th at 9:00 on The CW.

Have you watched any of the other pilots that have been made available early this fall? Will you be giving Emily Owens M.D. a try due to its availability? Are there any fall shows that haven't been made available that you'd like to see early?

Emily Owens M.D. Sneak Peek: Emily and Will Stick Together

Emily Owens has reason to be excited. After spending over two decades furthering her education, she's made it out of medical school with a brain full of knowledge and a heart that's ready to heal the world. All the years of working and missing out on an active social life will be worth it if she can hit the ground running, her first-year with renowned specialist Dr. Gina Bendari. It doesn't hurt that her good friend from med school, Will, has been hired onto the same hospital, which should help make the transition not quite as awkward. On the series premiere of Emily Owens M.D. , though, there's something keeping Will from being a comforting presence. Emily's had a crush on him for quite a while. Considering the highly intensive program they just completed, that's not entirely unexpected; all the time that they've spend together working, studying, and preparing for this moment has caused them to have a pretty deep connection. Will, however, thinks that their connection is purely platonic and treats Emily like a good friend, when casual gestures like the one in the sneak peek make her giddy on the inside. Emily came into her new position worrying about being able to keep up and remember the basics, but she has to do one of two things in order to better her work environment. Either she has to get over Will and try to look at him as more of a colleague than a crush, or she has to confess her feelings and hope he feels the same. The series premiere of  Emily Owens M.D. airs Tuesday, October 16th at 9:00 on The CW. You can check out the TVOvermind Emily Owens M.D. discussion forum here . Do you think that Emily and Will will ever get together? How long will it take for Emily to become more comfortable at the hospital? Is Emily ready to be an adult?
