Do You Prefer Katherine Heigl On TV or In Movies?

Whatever you think of Katherine Heigl, there's no denying she's one of the few current stars of screens both big and small. Grey's Anatomy, where she's recently agreed to appear on another season, is still a highly watched and talked-about TV show. And in theaters, all three movies with her in leading roles — Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, and The Ugly Truth — have had at least respectable results at the box office.

This all has raised an interesting debate: Should Heigl flee TV for movies? Or should she stay on the small screen, where the roles are potentially meatier? This week, two critics weighed in: one saying Heigl should stay on TV, where she can play something more than "the postmodern shrew", another arguing that it's time for Heigl to pull a Clooney and say farewell to TV.

Do you think Heigl is better suited for TV roles, or should she milk her big-screen appeal?

She would be easy to tolerate if she didn't speak so negatively about every project she's worked on. I also can't entirely respect a smoker.

I thought the same: Neither!!! I don´t watch Movies or TV Shows with Katherine Heigl. I would prefer if her character dies on Greys. I think she is so annoying!!!

My Father The Hero was a little creepy to me, I remember watching it as a kid...didn't she have a crush on her dad..the french guy, Gerard? Anywho, I enjoyed Knocked Up--but this coming from someone whose favorite comedy is Old School. I'm not a fan of her as a person. I'm going to be honest here: Her voice and personality annoy me tremendously. She seems like she always has an attitude and something negative to say...I understand being vocal, but she acts too holier than thou. She has a big head too, but that's neither here nor there.

Sometimes I feel like the only person that actually likes KH. Love Izzie on Grey's, and I loved 27 Dresses. Haven't yet seen The Ugly Truth, but I think it looks good.

If so many people hate her, who is seeing her movies? I disliked her early on, for some reason My Father the Hero just grossed me out, but I changed my mind during Roswell. But I agree with her comments about Knocked Up, so that didn't bother me. I do think most of her movies are tripe, but I don't hate her.

I agree with Brandi13jrm. Neither would be just fine with me. I do not like her.

I chose movies since that would mean a whole lot less of her. I actually would prefer neither. I can't stand her!
