‘The Good Doctor’ Features Actor With Autism for an Insightful Episode That Highlights the Need for More Inclusion
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Good Doctor” episode, “22 Steps.”]

The Good Doctor” is a way for viewers who have never met a person with autism to get to know more about the differences in neurology and behaviors that may accompany the disorder. For the show’s central character Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a surgical resident with autism and savant syndrome, he hasn’t met anyone with autism either, at least not until Monday’s episode.

When a young man named Liam (Coby Bird) is wheeled in on a gurney, Shaun immediately understands why the boy is struggling with the nurses. Far from needing to be restrained, it turns out he has autism and doesn’t like to be touched. Shaun proves to be instrumental in understanding Liam’s needs and relaying them to the hospital staff. IndieWire spoke with series creator David Shore to get his take on the insightful episode.

'Almost Friends': Film Review

'Almost Friends': Film Review
In its meandering way, Almost Friends touches on serious coming-of-age themes. Parental dysfunction, teen pregnancy and emotional trauma are some of the plot points in writer-director Jake Goldberger's third feature (after Don McKay and Life of a King), a comic drama that's sometimes appealingly gentle but more often frustratingly amorphous. There are instances of wit and sensitivity scattered through the screenplay, but they have no cumulative impact amid the lackluster direction and general dearth of urgency.

Though the actors create persuasive moments, there's plenty that's unconvincing in this story of Charlie (Freddie Highmore), a twentysomething who's stuck in neutral and gradually...

Anatomy of a Hit: How ABC's 'The Good Doctor' Became the Season's Breakout

In the Peak TV era where more than 500 shows are competing for viewers, delivering a big breakout hit on a broadcast network has become increasingly challenging. But it's not totally impossible, as Fox's Empire and NBC's This Is Us most recently managed to cut through the cluttered landscape. And this season, ABC's Freddie Highmore starrer The Good Doctor has followed suit.

The Sony Pictures Television Studios-produced drama, based on a Korean format and from showrunner David Shore (House), is outpacing the numbers This Is Us was pulling last season by 28 percent. The medical drama's latest feat is even...

ABC Orders 3 More ‘Kevin (Probably) Saves the World’ Episodes, ‘The Mayor’ Scripts
ABC has extended the run of the freshman dramedy “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” by three episodes, the network announced on Friday.

The network also ordered three additional scripts for the freshman comedy “The Mayor,” a more restrained show of confidence. The network previously handed out a full-season pickup to the Freddie Highmore medical drama “The Good Doctor” and relegated the Kyra Sedgwick miniseries “Ten Days in the Valley” to Saturday night.

Ratings: CBS Gains on Monday After Benching ‘Me, Myself & I’
CBS viewership was up a bit on Monday with its newly rejiggered comedy lineup, while ABC definitely missed the presence of Freddie Highmore. NBC topped the night in TV ratings for adults 18-49, thanks to “The Voice.” ABC, which was tops for the previous Monday in total viewers and in the target demo, was first in viewers last night but second in the demo. ABC aired a Luke Bryan special in place of its Highmore-starring freshman medical drama, “The Good Doctor.” Meanwhile, the evening marked the first Monday for CBS without the struggling Bobby Moynihan comedy “Me, Myself & I,” leading.

‘The Good Doctor’ Phenomenon: Creator David Shore Says He Couldn’t Have Made This Show a Decade Ago, But Now It’s A Hit

‘The Good Doctor’ Phenomenon: Creator David Shore Says He Couldn’t Have Made This Show a Decade Ago, But Now It’s A Hit
Few pundits predicted that ABC’s “The Good Doctor” would be this fall’s breakout hit. But they probably should have, given the success of last year’s freshman sensation “This Is Us.” Both shows fall under what some executives are dubbing “Warm Bath TV”: solid storytelling that makes viewers feel good, particularly in a world where they’re constantly being assaulted by distressing headlines.

It’s not just a U.S. phenomenon. Sony Pictures TV co-president Jason Clodfelter said the phrase “Warm Bath TV” was something he constantly heard from global broadcasters last month while attending the Mipcom TV market in Cannes, where international execs said they’re experiencing a similar hunger for uplifting fare.

“You don’t want to live in that dark world right now,” said Clodfelter, whose studio produces “The Good Doctor.” “What ‘This Is Us’ did so beautifully, aside from the emotion, was not [put characters in jeopardy] at every act break.

Ratings: ‘The Good Doctor’ Drops NBC and ‘The Voice’ to 2nd Place
In case you haven’t heard, “The Good Doctor” is doing great in TV ratings.

On Monday, the latest episode of the Freddie Highmore medical drama dropped NBC and “The Voice” to second place in the key 18-49 demographic. Combined with “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC easily topped the night in terms of total viewers as well.

ABC was preempted last night in the relatively small Kansas City market for ESPN's “Monday Night Football.” That makes the Disney-owned broadcaster network’s Nielsen numbers subject to adjustment, though the demo win should hold.

‘The Good Doctor’ Is the Perfect Show for Anyone Who Feels Like an Outsider, Marginalized, or Misunderstood

‘The Good Doctor’ Is the Perfect Show for Anyone Who Feels Like an Outsider, Marginalized, or Misunderstood
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers about “The Good Doctor” Episode 6, “Not Fake.”]

Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) on “The Good Doctor” looks like the walking definition of privilege in America: He’s a white male who’s well-educated. His disability, however, becomes apparent once he begins to interact with people because his autism impairs his social interactions and communications to a certain degree. Because of the discomfort and uncertainty this causes, he’s often treated with suspicion, distrust, and less respect than some of his colleagues.

But even before the board at St. Bonaventure Hospital have even met Dr. Murphy, many were reluctant to hire him. There were concerns about his ability to perform despite his stellar test scores and med school performance. He wouldn’t have gotten a fair shake at all, if it weren’t for his mentor, Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), who went to bat for him and pointed out that Murphy’s differences are a reason to hire him.
