Which Original Grey's Anatomy Character Would You Ditch?

Which Original Grey's Anatomy Character Would You Ditch?

Grey's Anatomy is on a holiday break, but the recent buzz about TR Knight maybe wanting to leave the show and Katherine Heigl's character having some issues of her own has kept Grey's fresh in my mind. With the exception of Isaiah Washington, all of the cast members who were with the show when it began are still key characters, and that got me thinking: Is it time for one of these doctors to go? If you could ditch one of the original Grey's characters, which one would it be?

Let em both go - If they aren't into it, than why should they stick around. I noticed there was very little of a George story last season anyway.

What's wrong with George? I just think they haven't given him much to work with. But Izzie drives me crazy! She is annoying and the STUPID Denny storyline is killing the show for me! Plus I strongly dislike Katherine Heigle (or however you spell her name).

i think there's an overwhelming consensus that bailey's the best !!!

Ditch Meredith. Good GOD she's such a depressing and irritating character. Depressing, but not in the manner that I feel sorry for her.

Izzie, she´s so annoying. But i think that i have only this impression because i don´t like Katherine Heigel. She´s a bad actress and i didn´t like her attitude as the voice of the golden globes spell her name false. Maybe the can have her an accident and change the actresses?! That would be an alternative... Oh i think i´m in the minority but i like Meredith.

I've warmed up to Meredith of late - but George and Izzie NEED TO GO - pref together!

Meredith. She's ridiculously annoying.

I honestly can't imagine the show without any of them, but I chose the Chief because I don't think I would miss him if he was gone. I detest Meredith, but she is the star of the show so I don't see how it could work without her.

I would ditch George, and then the little Grey (although she's not a choice). That girl grates on my last nerve. UGH. That being said, I used to really love the show, but in the last few seasons just got turned off by all the whining. Just STOP it already! Pick yourselves up and get back on the horse! Damn!

Meredith is so annoying and whiny, I never got into the show because of her. Every time she opens her mouth I'm annoyed! Bailey could go too.

Well George and Izzie, but I guess the only real reason for that is because of the off camera drama by the actors. Though I think the writers should just get back to the season one and season two greatness. And they need to stop adding a new character every week (seems like it any way.)

I used to love her, but her real-life personality got in the way.

Boring, annoying, bland, flat, sexy as yoghurt George.

well...I think Izzie is the best

well i guess now it seems like George should go - especially since he's being a brat but i think that they all have something to add to the show in one way or another :)

I used to love this show, but the season after Denny died it just seemed so dull and repetitive. I quit it but my mom still watches and when I'm home with she groans everytime Izzie is on the screen.

lol ema, I remember a few seasons ago, hoping they would kill off Meredith. She's such a whiner!

Meredith!!!! And I know she's the title character, but seriously, I cannot STAND her.

I do love the show and don't have a huge problem with any of the characters, but I voted for George. In seasons 1 and 2, he was my absolute favorite, but now I just want to hit him sometimes. He's gotten pretty ridiculous.

I said Meredith. I can't stand her incessant whining, and I detest the fact that she always looks like she's been crying. I am really sick of Izzie too (well actually it's more of the fact that Katherine Heigl doesn't know when to shut her damn mouth).

i went with izzy, because i've been tired of her the longest and strongest. i could do without meredith (especially last season), but this one she's been subdued enough that izzy got my vote. really, you could get rid of every one of the original characters except christina and bailey and i'd be happy as a clam. the chief could stay, i guess. maybe alex, too.

George. or Alex.. but probably George.

Shocking results...I don't like how Katherine and TR are complaining all the time, it definitely doesn't help the morale of the show or the enthusiasm of the audience, but I don't want Izzie or George to go anywhere. I think the show is still great, and I never miss an episode. I think it could use more heat and sex again. It's like all of the passion left the drama for Private Practice, which is almost a better show nowadays. Also, by heat and passion, I DON'T mean the gross Sloan and Lil Grey pairing. I like her, but I don't want anyone with that hunk that isn't woman enough for him, as she is but a wee girl still.
