ER and Chicago Hope
It's pretty standard for two medical dramas to emerge in the same year, something that probably has occurred every season since these two successes debuted, but it's a bit more unusual when you consider that both ER and Chicago Hope are set in Chicago hospitals. ER, created by Michael Jurassic Park Crichton and produced by Amblin Entertainment, premiered on NBC in the fall of 1994 and followed a huge (evolving) ensemble working in the fictional County General Hospital emergency room. Running for 15 years and winning multiple awards, the NBC medical drama trounced its still successful competitor Chicago Hope. Also airing in September, 1994, the CBS show created by David E. Kelley was similarly set in a fictional hospital but dealt with more areas than just 'emerge' and only lasted six seasons. It's hard to compete with the Clooney.
