Live from the Operating Room, It's NBC's Today Show

NBC's Today has managed to make real-life surgery seem as schmaltzy as the hit show Grey's Anatomy.

Plucky, telegenic patients are filmed while receiving all sorts of procedures on NBC Chief Medical Correspondent Nancy Snyderman's "Inside the O.R." series being shown this week on Today. The series kicked off with heart surgery, only to be followed by a live birth on Tuesday and brain surgery (yes, brain surgery) on Wednesday.
