OMG EMT! Now a Show


OMG EMT! is coming to TLC, the network announced today. The four-part series, which debuts Saturday, May 3, depicts "some of the most memorable and unusual emergency calls, told by real-life EMTs who face these stranger-than-fiction scenarios every day," according to the announcement. TLC likes to give new shows a trial run, so if OMG EMT! turns out to be popular, expect a lot more of it very quickly. Not to disparage the important and interesting work that EMTs and other first responders do, but it's hard not to wish for a straight-up reboot of Rescue 911.
