Prime Time Double Up

Sometimes we have the odd situation where an actor appears in two prime time series at the same time, often while they’re on the way out of one and a new series is debuting. Here are some examples from this season:

  • Abraham Benrubi finished his run as “Jerry” on ER while starting a role as “Ben” in Men in Trees.
  • Sara Gilbert has minor roles on both ER and the new sitcom The Class.
  • Sally Field started the season reprising her occassional role on ER and is in the cast of the new ensemble drama Brothers & Sisters.

Odd how ER is one rung of all three ladders. Other examples?
