You think Mark (Eric Dane) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) will be spared from the whole Alex (Justin Chambers) one-night stand thing after the Grey's Anatomy-Private Practice crossover next year? You think all they'll worry about is Mark's long-lost 18-year-old daughter suddenly appearing out of nowhere pregnant and probably sick with something? Think again. Potential spoilers ahead. Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, ever so casually, drops this bomb regarding Mark and Lexie: "Ever heard of the phrase, "Deep doo-doo"? That's pretty much where their relationship is headed. Let's just say Mark may not be the only one doing a little two-timing in the Jan. 14 crossover." The implications of this, right? First off, it essentially said that Mark and Lexie, a sort of contrived relationship at first, are going to the dogs (unless deep doo-doo means something else in your vocabulary). Secondly, both will two-time in the January 14 episode. Does this mean, gas, Lexie will be subject of Alex's one-night stand? And what about Mark? Is it too soon to say that he'll be rekindling some old flames with Addison (Kate Walsh)? Source Here
With the cruel three-week break on Grey's Anatomy and nothing except the little webisodes to pass by the time, Grey's fans seem to be engrossed in finding out the identity of Alex's (Justin Chambers) upcoming one-night stand. With promises that it will make our heads spin ala Linda Blair, expectations are understandably high - except for Izzie (Katherine Heigl) fans, of course. TV Guide is good enough to narrow down the field by excluding some of the choices - although we're not too sure if we want to find out this woman's/man's identity before it actually happens. Potential spoilers: According to TV Guide, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) is not the unlucky girl, so the post-it wedding between her and McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) will remain firmly posted. It's not Callie (Sara Ramirez) either, because she and girlfriend Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) will reportedly be getting a little sexy soon. "We see a little girl-on-girl action. America was asking for it and America got it," reveals Capshaw herself. Speaking of a little time-passer, here's the second Seattle Grace: On Call webisode. These are the interns and a couple of Mercy Westers, one being Reed, one of the main suspects in Alex's hookup mystery, so don't go asking what show is this / who are these people. It's Grey's Anatomy. Source & Video
Rejoice, Izzie haters. On second thought, not really, because this probably won't last long. Alex's real-life alter-ego Justin Chambers on Grey's Anatomy said that a one-night stand that will "add spice" to the show is on the horizon. This after Izzie's January 21 resurfacing on Seattle Grace will reportedly do more harm than good. Chambers adds, "I was totally thrown off by it. I think it's great though... The writers are really good at turning corners and taking your head for a little spin. It surprised me as much as it will the audience." If Chambers watches the show, he would not describe his character hooking up with Mercy Wester Reed as "shocking" surely, so other than the obvious choice, who can the mystery girl be? Michael Ausiello lists down the following suspects: Reed, Lexie (Chyler Leigh), Addison (Kate Walsh), Cristina (Sandra Oh), Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Bailey (Chandra Wilson). We wouldn't even dignify the last option with a retort. As for the others, we've seen that a little alcohol can go a long way on Grey's Anatomy. Case in point: an inebriated Cristina kissing (a frankly very hot) Jackson. Will an Alex-Lexie hook-up be surprising? Yes, because Lexie appears to be in a good place now with Sloan (Eric Dane). Will an Alex-Addison hook-up surprise us? Not really. Will an Alex-Cristina will? Yes, and it will also be out of character for Cristina to just be kissing people all of a sudden. And Meredith? Seriously? That being said, Sloan's daughter seems to be an attractive option. The girl's 18 and, after the January 14 crossover with Private Practice, just dealt with a problematic pregnancy so that's also a long shot. On the other hand, the one-night stand storyline shouldn't last very long, I would say. So Iz and Alex will probably be back together faster than you can say metastatic melanoma. That, or she'll leave Grey's Anatomy for good instead of drop by once every half-season. Source Here
After taking a five-episode hiatus to shoot a film and spend time with her new daughter, Katherine Heigl will return to Grey's Anatomy for the Jan. 21 episode. Izzie's absence has certainly affected her hubby, Alex (Justin Chambers), who may not be able to forgive her for running out on their marriage. We caught up with Chambers on the set of Grey's, where he spilled that the pair's marital problems may send Alex running into another woman's arms. When Izzie returns, Chambers says that she and Alex will have some work to do. "Alex is just fed up. He's not built for all of this. He really meant what he said when he committed to her at their wedding and now he just feels that it's all rushed too fast and he hasn't really necessarily thought things through. He has so much emotional baggage anyway." "Did he really do the right thing?" Chambers ponders. "Maybe he didn't. Does she really love him or does she love the idea of them? She's got so much to work out on her own, that maybe they're not supposed to be together for a while, maybe never." Alex seeks solace at Joe's bar, where his inebriation, as it often does on this show, sends him straight into a one-night stand. Who, you ask? We're sworn to secrecy, but Chambers hints that fans will be supremely shocked. "I was totally thrown off by it. I think it's great though. It just adds a little spice to the show. The writers are really good at turning corners and taking your head for a little spin. It surprised me as much as it will the audience." To Read More Click Here .
"Grey's Anatomy" finished its Fall run on Thursday, December 3 and is due to comeback with a crossover event on January 14. In somewhat an annual tradition, the medical drama is going to cross path with its spin-off "Private Practice" again in episode "Closer to the Edge". When Lexie finds out that there is something wrong with Leven Rambin's Sloan Riley's pregnancy, Mark is forced to summon Addison to Seattle Grace to perform a surgery. With more doctors in the crowd, complications and tensions tend to rise, and they extend to "Private" episode where Mark ends up calling Addison back for more surgeries. The question whether sparks will fly once again between Mark and Addison has been brewing. Creator Shonda Rhimes offered a tease, saying "They're both really grown up since they were together, and most of the animosity that they had is gone. Now they're friends, but they may end up falling back into their old patterns while they're together." Source & Preview

Operate on bones? The girl can also sing. But you know that already. Apparently, Grey's Anatomy star, make that Tony-winning Grey's Anatomy star, Sara Ramirez performed a special a capella version of Silent Night on the ABC show's last episode for the year last week, Grey's Anatomy executive producer Shonda Rhimes revealed via Twitter. Ramirez, who won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as The Lady of the Lake in Spamalot in 2005 (where she thanked Claritin in her acceptance speech), is now better known for her role as orthopedic surgeon Sara Ramirez on Grey's Anatomy. Silent Night played on the dinner table scene, where, notably, her character Callie was absent because of work. Throughout Bailey's (Chandra Wilson) heated conversation with her daddy, her voice reverberated, and the song in its entirely played. Source & Videos
Fast National ratings for Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009 A slightly down night for ABC Thursday resulted in an across-the-board ratings win for CBS, which led primetime in both in viewers and demographic ratings. CBS was off a touch from the last couple weeks as well, but it still snagged the top spot with 14.35 million viewers and an 8.8 rating/14 share in households. ABC (10.3 million, 6.8/11) finished second. Fox (7.9 million, 5.0/8) came in third, a good distance ahead of fourth-place NBC (5.4 million, 3.5/6). The CW averaged 3.2 million viewers and a 2.1/3 -- though that may change some since its Miami affiliate aired an NFL game instead of the regular lineup. In the adults 18-49 demo, CBS' 3.7 rating topped ABC's 3.5 for the lead. FOX and NBC tied for third at 2.3, and The CW came in at 1.5. To Read More Click Here .
For fans sick over the thought that Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy is the last until next year, here's a prescription - Seattle Grace: On Call, a webisode series. Shot documentary-style, the four-minute episodes are set in Joe's Emerald City Bar, chronicling the woes the Seattle Grace docs face. Joe the Bartender (Steven Bailey) is joined by interns Steve, Megan, Pierce, Graciella and Ryan. New Mercy Westers Reed (Nora Zehetner) and Charles (Robert Baker) also star. "Our goal with the web series is to expand the Grey's universe by offering a unique perspective of the various happenings at Seattle Grace, while paralleling some of the same story lines seen on the show," said Grey's executive producer Shonda Rhimes. The first webisode becomes available online right after the year's final installment of the series, at 10/9c. It concludes Jan. 21, with a making-of look about On Call Jan. 27. Source Here
