Exciting news on the Grey's front today: T.R. Knight has been bought for another season! Now promised $125,000 per episode along with a small portion of the show profits, the adorable George O'Malley will continue to bumble about the halls of Seattle Grace. There had been some uncertainty surrounding George's (and T.R. Knight's) fate on the show after what he did (er, failed to do) in the finale, and the highly publicized incident in which costar Isaiah Washington directed a homophobic insult toward Knight on set. In the end, it looks like we'll be able to see which of the gorgeous women who are inexplicably head-over-heels for him he chooses after all.
Speaking of Isaiah Washington, his return to the show is still not definite. Pay boosts similar to Knight's were also awarded to several other Grey's stars, but not to Washington. A source hints that Washington's character will "be back as a series regular," though the publicists at ABC are deflecting questions about the issue, claiming the audience is supposed to not know whether Dr. Burke will be back, and reminding us that that's what "cliffhanger" means.
