Grey’s Anatomy is one of those shows that makes people say, “That’s still on? I thought it ended years ago.” Perhaps that’s due to Katherine Heigl‘s departure, or maybe because it’s just been on so long its lost all hype. Season 10 starts on September 26 with a two-hour premiere. Maybe this is why people are sick of the show. It’s just…bloated. I stopped watching somewhere in the middle, but started again. I don’t know why. It’s pretty bad. They’ve killed off half the original cast by now. And the drama that happens to them, outside of bullshit relationship stuff, I’m talking about things like a shooter running around in a hospital and almost everyone in a plane crash, is getting too ridiculous for some viewers to put up with.
But not for ABC. In fact, ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee wants more seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. From Hollywood Reporter:
Deals with the six core Grey’s Anatomy cast members, including Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, are up after the upcoming season. And several have expressed interest in pursuing other work. But Lee said he hopes to have the show on ABC for “many years to come” and expressed confidence that creator Shonda Rhimes would find a way to weather whatever casting changes occur. “Shonda is an extraordinary creative force [...] She will, like she always does, bring changes that are extraordinary. We would certainly like to see it on the network for many years to come.”
“Many years”? No way, dude. It’s all about Scandal now.

Word on the street is that Grey’s Anatomy phenom Katherine Heigl is trying to spread the word that she should be nominated for an Emmy award due to her huge success on the medical-themed and mega star-power that, you know, follows her everywhere she goes. According to Entertainment Weekly, Heigl, herself, has really done just that:
Though she sat out more than half of the season of Grey’s Anatomy, Katherine Heigl has submitted herself in the supporting actress category for this year’s Emmy race, her representative confirms. There is no set amount of episodes that an actor must appear in to be eligible for either the supporting or lead actor categories.
Heigl only appeared in a handful of episodes this year before her character, Dr. Izzie Stevens, was last seen around Seattle Grace in January. Heigl was due back on the set of the ABC drama March 1 but she never showed up. Heigl told EW that “rumors that I refused to return were totally untrue.” ABC Studios said it was mutually agreed upon that Heigl would end her run this season.
Yes, guys, she totally does deserve that Emmy … and you wanna know why? Because you’re probably looking at the next condescending, good-living advice-spewing, Goop-filled Gwyneth Paltrow, right here. Like the child that craves attention, maybe if you acknowledge her quick and thoroughly, she’ll go away for awhile. Or at least until the next pain in the ass kid comes along and doesn’t want to share their stupid ball, either.
Nah, I’m actually just joshin’. Lovato tweeted a photo of herself looking a bit worse for the wear earlier today, but it’s just a sneak-peak at her upcoming stint on Grey’s Anatomy.
The episode, “Sonny With a Chance”, debuts next month and centers around Lovato’s schizophrenic episodes and subsequent hospitalization at Seattle Grace.
Will you be watching — you know, even though it wasn’t Joe Jonas who clawed her eyes out, and hell, why should he? It’s not like she keeps fawning over him and swooning all over the place about how dreamy and prince-y he is or anything.
