Grey's Anatomy on ABC - Page 17

What guy likes to see their ex with another guy? Unless maybe he got a bootleg video or something...
post #482 of 961
Well, Bush has made their plans to air a Monday night episode even more idiotic. Now it's not only multiple shows, but also padding multiple shows.
post #483 of 961
Oh man, the episode tonight was a bit strange in some parts towards the middle, but the ending was amazing.

Can't wait for tomorrow night.

What a show!

The Denny thing has been a little drawn out. End it already.
post #485 of 961
Yeah, and a little over the top. Burke should have called Bailey immediately after that conversation with Izzy and had her check on what was going on. He knew something was up.
post #486 of 961
I think Burke knew, but wasn't going to stop her. If you notice everytime he talked to the other doctors at the other hospital, he said "my intern has said..." so that he could cover his ass. I think there was a part of him that wanted to show up his rival surgeon and part of him that wanted denny to get the heart.

My guess is they fly in the rival with the heart tomorrow to operate on denny while Burke himself is being operated on. Maybe Burke gets the heart? I didnt see where his wound was.

Is Izzy gone next season? Her and Addison dont seem like they are going to make it back for S3.

The ending was a big surprise and well done imho. Gonna have to figure out which one to DVR tomorrow, GA or 24!

ugh...what to watch...what to watch
post #488 of 961
Let's see....

Prison Break- Fox HD................check
24- Fox HD................................check
Pistons vs Cavs TNT HD.............check
Grey's Anatomy ABC HD.............check

Throw in a speech by the Prez to throw everything off...............check

I think that's too many checks.

Right now my plan is to record the game, PB, and 24, Grey's we'll watch OTA. The thought of having to be in front of the TV 'on time' is a little disturbing though.

Anybody got a spare 300GB triple tuner HD-DVR cablebox laying around???

Yes, if you're "hard-driving" Grey's Anatomy, make sure to take into consideration the Prez's speech and do it ahead of time so the speech won't put you to sleep.

How do we do this? What time will GA actually start tonight?
post #491 of 961
ABC has not yet indicated it will carry Bush's speech. And the ABC Web site says there are three hours of GA tonight -- first hour is the rerun of last night's ep (8/7pm). Then the season two-hour finale (9/8pm).

A PC with 3 OTA tuner cards will take care of 3/4 your requirements . I can only record two programs at once but fortunately can also catch the west coast airing if needed to bump that to 4 per night!

I believe everything has been shifted by 20 minutes if you check your EPGs. However you might want to pad or record the show after just incase.
post #493 of 961
I'm pretty much certain ABC will carry the speech. It's supposed to last 20 minutes, but should have at least 10 minutes of comentating BS from the press, so it should start on the half hour. They are having an Oprah Winfrey special after the Prez.

post #494 of 961
ABC: Oprah special moved to next monday. on the east cost/central, the president's speech will start at 8/7et. while the first hour of grey's airs. after the 20 speach is over, ABC will recap for the viewers what they missed in the first 20 minutes of last night's ep. Then the regular 2 new hour finale will progress as planned.
post #495 of 961
Cool, we're on the West Coast so the Prez speech wont affect regular programming. So now there's 3 hours of Grey's tonite, plus 24 and NBA and baseball. Sports is easy to watch with the sound off, 24 is a different story. Guess I'll have multiple TV's going plus record 24.

Man I'm really sick and tired of the Denny plotline. I wish they would have killed him off about three weeks ago. Hopefully they'll finally knock him off tonight.
post #497 of 961
All I gotta say is WOW! Great season ender tonight.

I agree completely. Everything felt right, and was executed perfectly.

And I love how the cliffhanger wasn't extreme or done for shock value or anything. It was subtle, and just right.

I can't wait for season 3, but the way it all ended makes the wait much more bearable.

Your wish is my command... Denny died tonight..

From Tuesday morning's "Variety":

"McDreamy and Meredith are on the move.

In what will likely be the boldest move of upfront week, ABC is today expected to announce plans to move megahit "Grey's Anatomy" to Thursday nights in the fall...."
post #501 of 961
So did anyone calculate the amount of actual Grays out of a 2 hour episode ? It seemed in the second half of the episode there was more commercial time than episode time.

I was glad that I was able to watch all 3 hours in a row tonight. They seemed to keep the drama a little more grounded than the Hand Grenade episode(s).

However, for a series that has done so well at maintaining numerous storylines since episode 1, I was a little bummed that the season finale stories are pretty much the same as the end of season 1.


It would be great if we could get House and Bailey to switch hospitals for a couple of weeks next season.

I can't believe there's not more chat about this show here. It was a fantastic season finale. Is Katherine Heigl ("Izzie" Stevens") off of the show next season? She was pretty much the only eye candy on the show.
post #503 of 961
Oh, by the way, I didn't really notice how many commercials there were. However, I did notice I was hitting the 30-second skip button a lot.

Thats true about izzie. But the denny thing was getting way overblown. She was getting way annoying with that whole deal.

CSI, OC, Grey's Anatomy. hmmm, bye bye OC.

Good thing Earl moved up an hour.

Why are they moving it? Did they not get enough viewers Sunday nights? Do they think they will get more up against CSI?

If I had to wager a guess, it would be that they think it's got enough of a following now to compete against CSI. It shouldn't have any problem beating "The OC", but I don't know how it's gonna fare against CSI.

Everyone wants the lucrative Thursday audience and they all want to be the ones in position to take over the top spot when CSI eventually drops off.

Incredible episode(s) last night...I honestly loved the culmination of EVERYTHING we've seen in the past two seasons of the show. From the Burke/Christina unrest, to the Webber/his wife finally coming to grips with the affair with Grey, to George-Izzie-Meredith-Christina-Alex "family" bond and friendship finally becoming solidified.

Whats going to happen now? Who is off the show? (Front Runners: Izzie, Burke, Addison) Will Meredith choose Derek? And if so, what does this mean for Addison?

Derek is such a complex character and Patrick Dempsey plays it perfect. I hate him and yet I want him and Meredith to be together because they are truly in love, and no matter how hard they fight it, they will always be in love. So when Meredith asked Webber about his affair and why he didn't leave his wife for Grey, it just added even more chaos to Meredith's jumbled mind. I love the chaos in the show, I think it is what truly makes it great.

The episode theme of "fight or fight" was perfect. Absolutely perfect. What set it up perfect was the end of Sunday's episode when Bailey was the only one running towards the gunshots. Everybody else was huddled in a corner or on the ground (or just plain shocked). Then with Christina fleeing from Burke after seeing him in such a weak position, you just wanted to yell at Christina and tell her to get back in there because he loves you and you love him. Stop being so AFFRAID! The end of the episode where she finally walks in there and stops him from moving his hand was just plain emotional. I hated that she wasn't with him the whole time, but I understand why she couldn't. She couldn't stand seeing him weak and seeing him in this position. She needed him to be strong.

Honestly, I can't wait for the Fall...that was a great season finale and Shonda did some amazing writing...can't wait to read her blog


also, Callie is a big girl

It is simply a matter of supply and demand. In this case the supply and demand for commercial time. Commercials can demand a far higher price on Thursday than on Sunday. Thus the same program -- even with a smaller rating on Thursday -- could well get Disney/ABC tens of millions of dollars more in revenue per year.

Thursday is a prime night for movie studios to hype the features which normally begin running on Fridays.

Thursday is also prime night for car makers -- who see more than 70% of their foot traffic over the Friday-Sunday weekend.

In addition food chains and food manufacturers want to get their share of the weekend shoppers. And on and on.

And Thursday is the last day to get the coveted 18-49 viewer (before he or she heads off to enjoy his or her weekend).
