'Off the Map' 1.06 Preview: Ryan's Secret Revealed

In the next episode of "Off the Map", the doctors face one of their toughest challenges so far when they are pushed to operate without medication help. When a robbery leaves the clinic without any medication, Otis has to face his personal demons with sobriety in order to save a patient, and Ryan meets a young patient with a disease she is far too familiar with.  Speaking of Ryan, this would be a very big episode of her. "She has this great backstory that is finally revealed in episode 6 - it's a wowza, cartoon eyes coming out of their sockets moment that they told me in that first meeting. The minute they told me why she was this impulsive free spirit I was very interested," Rachelle Lefevre who portrays the character said in an interview with NY Post.   Read More... //

'Off the Map' Stars Tease Tonight's Underwater Amputation (VIDEO)

TV shows -- especially medical dramas -- love to tease that they're doing something you've never seen on TV before, but I actually think that's true of this week's 'Off the Map.' And I've seen a lot. 'Off the Map' (Wednesdays, 10PM ET on ABC) has already featured a zip-line accident, tuberculosis, a severe electrocution and a large anaconda wrapped around a man, seemingly suffocating him, but actually keeping his insides from coming out ... and they've only aired four episodes! This week, their patient runs into trouble while scuba diving, and the docs have to perform an impromptu underwater amputation to save her. It's like 'Grey's Anatomy' meets '127 Hours,' with scuba gear. //

'Off the Map': Playing doctor on the Hawaiian set

The setting for ABC's "Off the Map" may be hostile, remote and undisclosed but the filming location is anything but. "OTM" shoots on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, in many of the same spots as ABC's previous ambiguously tropical series, "Lost." And though vestiges of "the island" aren't too hard to find if you're looking for them, the new series has done its part to create an entirely different world.Zap2it was among those who recently made the trek when the network hosted a few reporters for a day on set, and before we start rolling out our interviews with the cast, here are a few highlights of what we found: Heroin? It's a problem everywhere -- even in places where people are trilingual in Spanish, English and gibberish. Signs with medical warnings and advice on best practices coat the set of the "clinica," including what seems like several dozen reminders to wash your hands.You'd... //

TV Ratings: 'American Idol' down just 3.5% from premiere, still wins easily

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2011"American Idol" fell slightly from last week's premiere, averaging 25.2 million viewers over last week's 26.1 million. The first hour lost about 5% of viewers from the first hour of the premiere, while the second hour only lost 2%, as the show once again saw a rise in viewers from the first half to the second half.Interestingly, the second Wednesday show is only down 3.5% from the premiere, but the first Thursday night show lost almost 14% from the premiere. The second Wednesday episode actually did 2.6 million viewers better than the first Thursday night show. Thursdays are not a traditional "Idol" night and it's looking like maybe the competition is stiffer or that the hour-long format, as opposed to the two-hour format, is less appealing. It will be interesting to see how tonight's episode fares. Things are not looking good for "Off the Map," as the show... //
