What to Watch Thursday, Oct. 16

ER'ER'
(10PM, NBC)
With Pratt's shocking exit in the season premiere, the upcoming return of original cast members Anthony Edwards and Noah Wyle and ongoing rumors of George Clooney's return, 'ER' producers are making sure the show ends its 15-season run with style.

And tonight, add another major shake-up to the mix, as Maura Tierney's Abby Lockhart bids County General adieu. Unlike with Pratt's death, Abby's departure is less dramatic, as she decides to leave Chicago with her son and husband, Goran Visnjic's Luka Kovac.

Fans of Tierney needn't fret that she'll be gone from TV land for long, however; she'll play Denis Leary's love interest on 'Rescue Me' next spring.
