Which is More Realistic: House, Grey’s Anatomy, Scrubs or The Good Doctor?

Although the spectrum is comedy, Scrubs is the most realistic one followed by The Good Doctor, where walking into OT without masks and the in house romances make it seem little off the wheel, it is much realistic than an addicted doctor looking only at one in a million cases like house and all in house romances like Grey’s Anatomy.
