Which Will You Prefer: "Grey's" or "Private Practice"?

Which Will You Prefer: "Grey's" or "Private Practice"?

OK, it might not be fair to ask this so early, but I've got to do it. Based on Thursday night's special "Grey's Anatomy," which series would be more likely to win a spot on your fall TV viewing schedule: "Grey's" or "Private Practice"? (For the sake of the argument, "both" is not an option!)

Addison/Kate Walsh was the only reason I watched GA. I will watch Private Practice and say so long to Grey's Anatomy. Grey's Anatomy is going downhill anyways! Private Practice seems MUCH MUCH BETTER!!! Kate Walsh is WAY BETTER than Ellen Pompeo!

I think that I would like/watch private practice on its own, but when comparing it to grey's, there is NO CONTEST... during the 2 hours, I kept saying, "TAKE ME BACK TO SEATTLE GRACE!!!" :)

private practice looks like a cheap knock off of greys n greys has been sucking this season. the first season was the best, now it's just coasting. i hope greys gets better soon!

I've been a GA fan from the beginning and is the only series I watch (besides HBO series shows). Wish the writers would stop killing off Meredith's family. Did like watching Tim Daly & Taye Diggs & would give PP a chance this fall.

I like the characters on Private Practice soooooo much better than on Grey's. Especially since all the characters on Grey's are acting contrary to their 'personalities.'

Private Practice sounds interesting! I don't care for Grey's anymore!

There scene with the receptionist going to surf was unbearable. He is not even attractive, and the whole scene was ridiculously cheesy. That would never happen on Grey's - and I appreciate that. I love Addison, and I don't think that fits her either.

I hate Meredith and Derek with a passion, so anything that gets the focus off them is good. Addison is one of my faves, so I'd probably watch the spin-off more.

I really like Private Practice! Grey's is getting soooo tired I find...and just depressing. I thought Private Practice was a lot lighter and funnier...like how Grey's was in the beginning. I really hope ABC decides to air it!

dreamsugar. i so agree, I said that same thing last night. That hoe needs a beat down. I still wish Meredith had died. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Purrrr muthafucka purrrrrrrr!!!

I LOVED the Addison show!! I ws a nice break from the constant drawn out story lines on Grey's -- I'm getting exhausted with the George/Izzy crap -- seriously Callie beat the crap out of her (pleeeze!) -- she so needs it.

Addison is the only good thing left on Grey's, so I think I will prefer watching Private Practice. Really, though, they're very different shows so I don't think it's really a competition between the two.

I hate this episode! It was not worth the wait. What's up with killing Meredith's dad's wife? What's up with the elevator thing in LA? Why oh why is this episode so annoying? I love Grey's Anatomy and I hate to see it go down like this. Seriously, if Meredith and Derek will break up at the end of the season, I don't know if I will watch this show anymore. SeriouslY!

Yesterday was flat out horrendous!!! The Izzie and George pairing makes me :SICK: They need to break him and Callie up, she deserves much better. It's so stupid how Izzie and George had ALL THIS TIME to fuck eachother. They wait til he's married to do it?? Makes no sense. Grey's is going down the tubes., ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Purrrr muthafucka purrrrrrrr!!!

I agree jess55, the storylines in GA are really going downhill--it's become so repetitive and boring... I also found the switching back so annoying--it made it hard for me to care about either of the shows and think it would have worked better separately. I personally thought the LA scenes were trying way too hard to get us interested and to show us how "cool" and "interesting" the characters are... Totally disappointing. Did anyone else almost laugh during the Thatcher-Meredith scene at the end? I know it's wrong but the acting just didn't seem believable to me...

I was so looking forward to last nite's show,but both sucked,Im starting to give up on grey's..the storylines suck.

I will watch both...I actually really liked the whole LA thing last night. I wish we could have had more Grey's scenes though.

I was under-whelmed by the other show last night. I was also very disappointed in Grey's. McDreamy is being McA**hole these days.

I LOVED the LA stuff. In fact when I re-watch it in a little bit on my DVR I'm going to fast-forward through the Seattle stuff. Nothing new happened there except the thing with Meredith's stepmom (SO sad) and Christina picking out wedding/bridesmaids dresses. BOring. Private Practice was like a breath of fresh air. People who are hating the spin-off already need to remember that Grey's Anatomy wasn't an absolute hit right from Day 1. Give it some time! I really hope the new show gets picked up for next season. Tim Daly is SO sexy! :)

i'd pick grey's over the new one, but i think i will watch both (even though it was borefest '07 last night). ...didn't that whole "dell walking by shirtless scene" remind you of this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzMfW7oSKLQ)?
