Hollywood! Otolaryngology is Cool, Isn't It?

So there are lots of television shows on ER physicians (ER, Chicago Hope), general surgery (Gray's Anatomy), OB & pediatricians (Private Practice), plastic surgery (Nip/Tuck), ID doctors (House), etc etc.

What about shows/movies where an otolaryngologist is the star? Any thoughts on this lapse by Hollywood?

Of course, there's Dr. McSteamy on Grey's Anatomy who started out as an ENT, but than is mainly portrayed as a plastic surgeon.

What's up with that???
