'Emily Owens, M.D.' Premiere: Mamie Gummer Finds Hospitals And High School Are The Same (VIDEO)

She may have thought things would be different from high school once she stepped into the hospital on her first day, but things proved to be exactly the same on the series premiere of "Emily Owens, M.D." Here's hoping she at least got a break from the cliques and social drama during med school.

The new series stars Mamie Gummer -- daughter of renowned actress Meryl Streep -- in a role described by Zap2It as "Felicity" in scrubs. There's also a strong element of "Grey's Anatomy" to the show, as it follows Dr. Owens on her first day as a real-life doctor. She's excited and optimistic, and then she has all her hopes for a new beginning shattered when she hears her old high school nickname, "Pits."

It turns out her high school arch-nemesis Cassandra has inexplicably wound up starting at the same hospital on the same day. And Cassandra made no bones about proudly being "the b*tch" of the show, though she showed some heart when talking to a woman contemplating abandoning her mentally ill mother.

How will the show hold up? USA Today calls it the worst new show of the season -- yes, even worse than the "ridiculous" "Beauty & the Beast" on the same network.

Try and keep up with the good doctor's near-constant voiceovers on "Emily Owens, M.D." every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
