The Icon Award is presented to a television program with immeasurable fame and longevity. The show transcends generations and is recognized by peers and fans around the world. As one poignant quiet moment flowed to a heart-stopping rescue and back, "ER" continued to thrill its audiences through the finale on April 2, which bowed with a record number 16 million viewers.

The Emmy�-winning medical drama "ER" focuses on the lives of a group of doctors in the inner-city Chicago County General Hospital. They face stressful life and death situations that have an impact on their every day lives. In its 15-year prime-time television run, "ER" won 122 Emmy� awards, making it the most-lauded drama in television history � surpassing even "Cheers" and "M*A*S*H." The cast of the final season included Maura Tierney as Dr. Abby Lockhart, John Stamos as bad-boy and former paramedic Dr. Tony Gates and Academy Award�-nominated actress Angela Bassett as the tough attending physician Dr. Cate Banfield. Rounding out County General's ER staff are nurse Samantha Taggart (Linda Cardellini), surgical resident Neela Rasgotra (Parminder Nagra), eccentric doctor Archie Morris (Scott Grimes) and newcomer Aussie Simon Brenner (David Lyons).

Based on the best-selling novel by the late Michael Crichton, executive produced by John Wells and produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, "ER" was one of the most compelling and critically acclaimed dramas, launching the careers of its original cast members � including George Clooney, Noah Wyle and Julianna Margulies � making them household names.
