Getting On
Getting On Season 2 Episode 5 “The Revolving Admit Door” airs Sunday December 7th at 10 pm ET/PT.

Episode Synopsis: “The Revolving Admit Door” – DiDi (Niecy Nash) struggles to deal with her younger sister Sherrie (Lateefah Holder), who’s filling in at Billy Barnes and cozying up to Dawn (Alex Borstein). Jenna (Laurie Metcalf) gets a new look and encounters resistance to her research methods. Patsy (Mel Rodriguez) lets an award go to his head. The staff tries to balance patient flow and has issues discharging a patient they’d hoped never to see again.

Show Summary: At the Billy Barnes Extended Care Unit of Mt. Palms Hospital in Long Beach, Cal., the staff attends to the needs of female patients who are often “getting on” in years, while dealing with the challenges of a health-care bureaucracy in need of an overhaul. Even as they attempt to serve their charges under less-than-ideal circumstances, the lives of this ragtag crew are complicated by conflicting agendas, both professional and personal.
Blending outrageous humor with unexpected moments of tenderness, the critically-acclaimed show follows the daily lives of nurses and doctors as they struggle with the darkly comic realities of caring for the elderly in an overwhelmed healthcare system, skewering the petty bureaucracies of modern medical practice in America.
Cast regulars on GETTING ON include: Laurie Metcalf (three Emmys® for “Roseanne”) as Dr. Jenna James, who once hoped to become a medical-research star, but has instead been sentenced to purgatory at the facility; Alex Borstein (“Family Guy”) as Nurse Dawn, whose personal shortcomings and obsession with finding a boyfriend undermine her need to excel in her job; Niecy Nash (“Reno 911!”) as Nurse DiDi, whose easy rapport with patients should be an example to her superiors, but isn’t; and Mel Rodriguez (“Community”) as Patsy De La Serda, a reform-minded supervising nurse of ambiguous sexuality.
