The series began broadcasting on ABC on Tuesday, September 27, 2005, at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, although most countries outside North America began screening the series in mid-2006.
The show was #1 on Tuesday nights until FOX’s American Idol started in January. The show was also the #1 new show of the season until CBS’ Criminal Minds surpassed it. Its major competitor in the 9:00 p.m. timeslot was FOX’s House, which aired after American Idol.
The series was created by American director Rod Lurie, director of the films The Contender and Deterrence and may have been inspired by The West Wing, a popular political drama on rival NBC.
