“The Resident”: A senior resident at a hospital (Matt Czuchry, “The Good Wife,” “Gilmore Girls”) takes a new doctor (Manish Dayal) under his wing and shows the rookie all that’s good and bad about 21st-century medicine. Bruce Greenwood, Emily VanCamp, and Shaunette Wilson also star in the show from writers Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi.
