We've loved Grey's from the beginning and it continues to keep us wanting more each week. Of course we aren't the only ones. It's already in its third season and is still a huge hit. No wonder the entire cast topped Entertainment Weekly's Top Entertainers of the Year list. It has had a huge cultural impact, says the magazine. "'Grey's' isn't just a show, it's a phenomenon," said EW's Lori Majewski. "Back in May when last season's final show aired, every place in New York City was empty. You could get a table at the best restaurants." So what makes the show a hit? Executive Producer Shonda Rhimes says it's the surprising story lines. There just doesn't seem to be anything they won't do. Here's more:
That fleeting Meredith-George liaison ''was shocking — even for me, personally,'' says Ellen Pompeo, 37....''I've been kissing Patrick since I met him, but I was like, No, that's my T! I can't make out with him!'' Adds Sandra Oh, 35, who plays tightly wound Dr. Yang, ''When we saw that for the first time at a table read, we were like, Nooooo!'' That's precisely the reaction creator/exec producer Shonda Rhimes, 36, was hoping for. ''When people say they hate what's happening, and then go on to describe in detail everything they hate, I know they're really paying attention and have strong feelings about the characters,'' she says. ''That's a good sign.''
Well, we don't hate a thing (except for reruns!). You guys just keep doing what you're doing and we'll always be back for more!
