What are the most popular network TV shows of 2014? Before we get into the fact that two comedies managed to top that list, which is particularly impressive in an era where network TV comedies aren't exactly thriving on the whole, let's define "popular," because this list has some very specific terms applied to it.
Though Dane started his career in bit roles on sitcoms like Saved by the Bell and Roseanne, he quickly shifted into more dramatic fare, with roles on series like Gideon’s Crossing, where he also played a doctor, and Charmed. His film career also started to take off, appearing as Multiple Man in Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand, the same year he wrapped the stethoscope around his neck as Dr. Sloan.
ABC fell a couple of weeks behind the other major networks in getting us the their Fall 2013 premiere schedule, but with months to go, that's kind of ok. All the same, it's exciting to get to see when the network's new and returning series will debut this fall. For ABC, that includes the highly anticipated Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and new 80s-set comedy The Goldbergs, which looks like it could be a winner.
Spring has arrived… in theory, anyway. The weather may or may not have gotten the memo, depending on what part of the country you're living in. Regardless of whether or not there's snow on the ground, spring has arrived and with it, the approaching season finales for network television. Just yesterday, we shared the list of NBC finales and today ABC has provided their own schedule of season closers.
Patrick Dempsey has another sibling set to show up in the ninth season of Grey’s Anatomy, and the actress will be a Scream 3 co-star. Neve Campbell, who appeared in all four Scream films including the third installment in which Dempsey was her love interest, has been tapped to play a more sisterly role opposite Dempsey on Grey’s.
Things weren't looking very good for Eric Dane's character Mark Sloan when the eight season of Grey's Anatomy wrapped up. Not only did he suffer a devastating loss, and one fans of the ABC drama series will likely continue to feel when the series returns this fall, but he was also in bad shape due to the plane crash. There's an update on the status of the character, and Dane's status on the series.
Luddington will play a new doctor on the veteran program, which makes a lot of sense, as the show lost a few of its best and brightest during last season’s finale. Here’s to hoping Luddington gets a better break than Lexi did on the popular medical drama.
Entitled “Yesterday”, Grey’s Anatomy’s greatest episode aired partway through the second season. It didn’t feature bomb scares or main character deaths or exam failures. It simply turned three of the biggest I-wonder-why’s into three incredible remember-when’s and still found time to offer three fascinating medical cases perfectly reminiscent of the Grey’s formula we’ve all come to love.
Grey’s Anatomy has gone through some cast changes since its inception back in 2005. Luckily, a good percentage of the characters we’ve grown to love, or love to hate have stuck around over the years. With contracts coming up for many of the hit drama’s cast, including Sandra Oh, Patrick Dempsey, and Ellen Pompeo, it’s likely we will get word that one or a few doctors are on the way out.
Alternate realities and timelines can be a lot of fun in a TV show. See Community for evidence of that. Grey’s Anatomy will be exploring the idea of various what-if scenarios called “If/Then” and the episode will bring Kate Burton’s character back to life for the episode. Kate Walsh is also set to appear.
The ratings are in for last night’s primetime TV shows and The Big Bang Theory came out on top. A lot of people watched TV last night, but with so many new and returning shows premiering, there weren’t any huge break-out hits and a number of shows were down from last season’s premiere ratings, which isn’t all that surprising given the amount of competition on Thursday nights.
Source Code, one of the best science-fiction actioners from the summer film season, is already headed for a TV adaptation. The Jake Gyllenhaal starring, Duncan Jones directed film is about a soldier who has only eight minutes to solve a terrorist train bombing... well, eight minutes every time he's reinserted into the source code. Yeah, you may want to check out the film because describing the plot in full may take a while.
ABC has all of their ducks (and planes, angels, dancing celebrities, and modern families) in a row for the Fall 2011 primetime TV lineup. The network announced the schedule today, which includes super-sized premieres for Modern Family, The Middle, and Grey’s Anatomy, among others.
Is Patrick Dempsey packing up his perfect hair and leaving Seattle Grace? It would appear that there may have been a mix-up in a quote he made regarding his future status on the show. Following comments made by Dempsey, his publicist has attempted to clear up the confusion. Grey’s Anatomy is the reason many of us no longer associate Dempsey with the geeky kid who bought a high school cheerleader with his telescope money, or the slightly older kid who sold his body with extra anchovies.
In it, she'll play a mother taking part in an Alzheimer's clinical trial. Responding poorly and possibly unfit to care for her ten year old son, she'll push Dr. Stark to the limit as he considers calling social services on her
