ABC has cut Scandal’s episode order from 22 to 18 and they won’t say why according to Variety. We are all thinking the reason for the shortened season for one of their tops show is Kerry Washington’s unconfirmed pregnancy that has been rumored for a few weeks now.
Personally I wouldn’t mind if they did a few episodes without her because it could set things up for something even bigger and unexpected next season.
How do you feel about their episode order being cut down? I am sure ABC is not exactly happy about it because Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is a bust, Grey’s Anatomy has it goods weeks and bad weeks and Scandal does consistently well. So they really depend on Scandal not only to keep their Thursdays strong, but also the rest of their week because except for Mondays they are struggling with their 10p shows.
Jesse Williams was on Sesame Street and the Grey’s Anatomy star taught Elmo about the word furious.
But you have to wonder if that is a word kids should know. For example, how furious was PBS when they found out what the original voice of Elmo was doing in their private life. Or mommy was so furious that daddy was late on his child support? Or daddy was furious at mommy for spending so much money on the shoes? Or mommy was furious with daddy when he got caught with new mommy? Daddy was furious with the driver who cut him off? Mommy and daddy were furious with me for cursing at them. Mommy was furious at the cat for peeing on the bed and the dog for pooping on the white couch. And so on!
Shouldn’t kids learn happy words like peace, love and happiness? Or maybe it is just me who would be furious if their 4 year old knew what the word furious meant. Granted my toddler will know what all of the curse words mean because that is how their mommy rolls…things off her tongue.
Patrick Dempsey was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday and she got him to do something that we can all enjoy. She had him go in a tank while Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump aimed at balloons with arrows. If they nailed the center one, then the Grey’s Anatomy star would have buckets full of water rain down on him. Well after just two tries by the lead singer of Fall Out Boy, the middle balloon was pierced and Dempsey was all wet.
Things we learned about the Enchanted man, in his now clinging underwear, is that he has a nice anatomy!
The bad news is that Sandra Oh is leaving Grey’s Anatomy, the good news is that won’t be until the end of this season. She told The Hollywood Reporter, “Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go.” Then the Oscar nominee/Emmy winner added “It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well. [Cristina] wants to be let go, and I am ready to let her go. We have to start the process, story-wise, for the Grey’s writers to think of why she’s going to go.” Since we are a season of episodes away until she leaves the show, how she will depart the drama is unknown at this time. It is also unknown if she is the only original who will be leaving the show at the end of the season because Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, Justin Chambers, James Pickens Jr. and Chandra Wilson are also up. I wouldn’t be surprised if at least one more of the departs the show. What disaster do you think that Shonda Rhimes has planned for the end of the season, just in case she has to kill a few more of her cast members off? Place crash, done. Ferry accident, done. Hospital mass shooting, done. Bomb, done. Major storm, done. So it likes death by fire, as in burning down the hospital is one of the few disasters left for them to experience.
Personally I checked out last year, so I can totally understand why she is leaving and why others might follow.
Sara Ramirez Tweeted a picture of herself in a little red dress and it’s a good thing she plays a doctor on television because she going to cause several men’s hearts to skip a beat or two. So with all of the training she got on Grey’s Anatomy, she will be able to get their hearts to start pumping again.
Seriously who knew she had those legs? Why have they been hiding them on the show that will be back on ABC September 26th?
Before Ellen Pompeo was Post-It Note married to McDreamy on Grey’s Anatomy, she was dating McNightmare in Do You Have the Time? She looks the same now as she did when she was just 25 in that 1995 short.
Ellen Pompeo is going to be a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show tomorrow and she Tweeted a picture of herself getting dolled up for the show. Instead of her showing us what her face looks like au naturale, she showed us her naked back. I am assuming that she isn’t wearing a shirt or bra because she doesn’t want to get any makeup on them. Either that or that is how she pays her staff?
BTW I am so jealous by how flawless her back is.
Ellen Pompeo just joined Twitter and one of the first things she Tweeted was a picture of her looking like she is attacking her Grey’s Anatomy co-star. So what is she doing in that photo? She said, “Ladies, just so u know, I’m working on getting @iJesseWilliams’s shirt off, for a pic for you all. #ThankMeLater” Sounds rationale to me.
And as soon as she Tweets that picture, I will thank her. But for now she is just a tease that is promising something great just like that ABC show has been doing for a while.
