Grey's Anatomy Exclusive: Two more docs checking out? - Featured

It looks like Grey's Anatomy will be down two doctors next season, and, believe it or not, neither of them are played by Katherine Heigl! Sources confirm to me exclusively that Mercy West transplants Robert Baker (Dr. Percy) and Nora Zehetner (Dr. Adamson) are not expected to return next season. There's no official word on the fate of fellow 'invaders' Jesse Williams (Dr. Avery) and Sarah Drew (Dr. Kepner), but there's buzz both may stick around long-term. Grey's boss Shonda Rhimes has until June to decide whether to exercise the series regular options in their contracts. (Here's hoping she does; I like those two.) Heigl's MIA Izzie, meanwhile, will reappear in April. But for how long? Confides an ABC source: 'No one knows.' Thoughts? Will you miss Percy and Adamson? Should Rhimes keep Avery and Kepner around? And are you so over the Heigl drama? I kind of am. Source Here

Ratings: The Office's Baby Delivers Strong Numbers - Featured

Oh, baby! The long-awaited arrival of Jim and Pam's child helped The Office win its hour among adults 18-to-49, besting Grey's Anatomy and boosting The Marriage Ref to equally strong numbers. The Office's one-hour episode drew 9 million viewers, but it easily defeated ABC's Grey's Anatomy (11.8 million viewers) and CSI (15.6 million viewers) in the coveted demo. Despite the loss, Grey's was up 8 percent over its last new episode. Following The Office, The Marriage Ref scored 7.7 million viewers, but also won its hour in the demo, giving NBC some hope in its post-Jay Leno Show lineup. (NBC has improved to third overall three nights in a row.) The Peacock kicked off its night with Community (5.1 million viewers) and Parks and Recreation (4.6 million viewers), both on par with their previous new episodes. Fox still won the night overall, thanks to an American Idol results show (19.3 million viewers). Idol and its lead-out, Kitchen Nightmares (8.1 million viewers), were both down in the demo, however. CBS was the night's most-watched network, but came in second in the demo. Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains drew 12.4 million viewers and The Mentalist returned to 14.8 million viewers. Survivor and CSI were up from their last outings by 3 percent and 16 percent, respectively, while The Mentalist dumped 14 percent of its demo rating against Marriage Ref. ABC bookended the new episode of Grey's with a Grey's repeat (4.8 million viewers) and a fresh Private Practice (8.1 million viewers), which suffered its lowest demo rating since moving to Thursday.

Kevin McKidd Ready to Return to 'Rome' - Featured

" Grey's Anatomy " star Kevin McKidd has confirmed he's planning to take another trip back to ancient Rome when his hit TV epic is adapted for the big screen. The Scottish actor's " Rome " was a big hit in 2005 and 2006, but was canceled in 2008. Now, creator Bruno Heller has completed a script for a feature-length version of the controversial drama, which also featured Ray Stevenson, Polly Walker, Kerry Condon and James Purefoy. And McKidd is keen to revive his violent soldier character Lucius Vorenus in the film, which is reportedly set years after the series ended. The actor says, "It (show) was very popular when it was on TV and seems like it's become more popular since it's been taken off the air ... I think it'll be a lot of fun to revisit those characters."

Derek-Richard Tensions to Continue on Grey's Anatomy

Looks like the tensions between Derek and Richard on Grey's Anatomy, which have escalated weekly since the Season 6 premiere, aren't going away anytime soon. In next week's Chandra Wilson-directed episode, tensions between the former chief and the current chief continue to boil when a specialized surgery is required. The latter decides Owen is better suited for it than Richard. That doesn't sit well with Dr. Webber, who was basically ousted when Derek revealed his alcohol abuse to the board, and forced to swallow a whole lot of pride. Things had been frosty between them long before that, too. Richard's handling of the merger and his own role as Chief caused major friction between the pair. How will this clash of the surgical titans end? Source Here

Shonda Rhimes Steals Jason George from Bailey

We're really sorry, Bailey. While it's taken a long time for this Grey's Anatomy doctor to jump back into the dating pool, we can comfirm that her dalliance with Jason George's Ben won't last too long. She can blame Shonda Rhimes for that. The woman behind Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice has cast George on her new pilot, Off the Map. The series focuses on a handful of medical professionals that work at a clinic on a tropical island. It's hard to compete with that, Miranda. George will portray a character named Otis on the series. So far, the cast also includes Enrique Murciano and Caroline Dhavernas. Source Here
