ABC has finally released their full fall premiere schedule for the 2013-2014 season, admittedly the last of the bunch, and right before the beautiful agony and madness of Comic-Con 2013. The eagerly awaited Joss Whedon pilot, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' will premiere on Tuesday, Sep. 24, while 'Modern Family' and 'Grey's Anatomy' have been given super-sized debuts.
Woo! Just minutes after ABC gave fans the most eagerly anticipated announcement that Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' would go to series, so too have a number of other ABC favorites been renewed. 'Castle,' 'Once Upon A Time,' 'Modern Family' 'Scandal,' 'Nashville,' 'Revenge,' 'Suburgatory' and 'Grey's Anatomy' have all earned additional season orders at the network, so find out the latest inside!
With 'Grey's Anatomy' still going fairly strong and Shonda Rhimes' other ABC drama 'Scandal' steadily picking up speed, there were bound to be casualties, particularly from the lowest rated of the bunch. And while we knew 'Private Practice' could come to an end when series lead Kate Walsh departs in episode 13, the show's creator has offically confirmed the news. Find out what Rhimes has to say about the cancellation inside!
Don't scream, but there's a party of five waiting for you in 'Grey's Anatomy' season 9. Yes, horrible, horrible puns aside, it seems that one-time TV darling Neve Campbell is dipping her toes back into the televised waters, gearing up for a multiple-episode stint on the ninth season of ABC's long-running medical drama 'Grey's Anatomy. But who might the Hollywood starlet play, and could we have heard about her character before?
The gods of TV never show a vampire the true death without sending someone to medical school, or however that old expression goes. Mixed metaphors aside, those who were sad to see 'Napoleon Dynamite' and 'Veronica Mars' star Tina Majorino leave behind 'True Blood' will be relieved to see her pop up later this fall on the ninth season of 'Grey's Anatomy!' But will her character be as loveable as Tina Majorino herself? Of course. Of course she will.
Earlier today, we saw a surprising article that detailed the current state of viewers for Sunday night cable series, some of which hardly seemed like they could be true. And yet, for as critically adored as series like 'Breaking Bad' may be, it just isn't where the big bucks are. A new list of TV's most paid stars that came out today will equally shock you, particularly when your salary is less than that of a monkey. Enjoy!
When enough stars leave a series, you'd think it might be time to throw in the towel. 'The Office' doesn't seem to be able to take the hint, but now 'Grey's Anatomy' is about to amputate its arguably most well-received leading man. No, don't worry, Patrick Dempsey will still be around, but Seattle Grace Hospital is about to lose some serious steam when Eric Dane leaves the series for 'Grey's Anatomy' season 9. But will his exit be addressed?
Now that both 'Community' and 'Fringe' have been officially saved for cancellation, it feels like most TV-goers can breathe actual sighs of relief, few other series coming so close to the bubble. Still, after NBC and FOX's laundry list of pickups, things have been curiously quiet on the front of ABC. ABC maintains less bubble series to be sure, but how much longer until we can expect relief? No longer!
We like Katherine Heigl (?). She gets an unfair wrap for some of her public comments about the films and writers she works with, and beneath all the negative press hides a very intelligent, if misunderstood, and talented actress wrapped in a pretty package.
Now we're not quite to the point of forgiving 'Two for the Money' or 'The Ugly Truth' but, hey, we've all got to make a buck now and again.
Unfortunately, 'Grey's Anatomy' seems to feel much the same way about Heigl, despite having launched her career as Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Katherine Stevens for six seasons of the popular ABC drama. After departing the series in season 6, Heigl had recently expressed interest in returning to the series if only to provide some closure to the character, but no one from the series seems to be having it.
