Grey’s Anatomy Season 3 Premiere Tonight

September 21, 2006 by  

Cast of Grey's Anatomy

I’ll be honest with you. I have three favorite shows, I know that sounds like I’m saying I have three best friends, but it’s true. Of all the TV I watch (and I watch a lot). There are 3 shows that I would be utterly devastated without. The first is The Office (duh), next is Veronica Mars, and the third is Grey’s Anatomy.

By far the BEST drama on TV, Grey’s Anatomy is the perfect blend of drama, comedy and let’s face it…pretty, pretty people. The writing is insanely good, as are the actors. Each and everyone of them bring a complexitiy unparalled in TV today.

As a self-admitted TV addict, I love the behind-the-scenes action almost as much as I do what we see play out on the screen each week. To this end, Grey Matter brings me such joy. Grey Matter ( is a blog written and maintained by Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Shonda Rhimes. Each week Shonda and her staff of writers post about their experience writing that week’s episode. Where did the storylines come from? What was happening on a particular day of shooting? Why did they make the writing choices they did? I personally find it extremely fascinating.

In this week’s blog, Shonda Rhimes talks about her anxiety over Grey’s Anatomy moving to the new Thursday night time slot.

The head of ABC Steve McPherson (seriously, would it surprise you to know that I secretly call him McFee?) was all, “Shonda, we’re moving you to Thursday” and I was all, “Whoo-hoo!” And I got really super excited. Because Thursday? Is a rocking night for television. I did some dances of joy.

Then I woke up this morning and, out of nowhere, found myself FREAKED OUT. Because Thursdays? Is a rocking night for television.

…do me a favor and set your VCRs and your Tivos and most important, plant your heinies in front of the TV Thursday night at 9 pm and watch. Okay? So I don’t burst a blood vessel in my brain from the stress?

Even up against the powerhouse CSI, I think the doctors of Seattle Grace are going to hold their own just fine. I mean, seriously, is anyone out there not dying to find out who Meredith chooses? I can’t imagine a tougher decision in life – McVet (Chris O’Donnell) or McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey), not that’s just not fair.

And what about Izzie? She cut the L-Vad wire, Denny died (wait, I need a moment…ok), she quit the intern program. What is going to happen with our little trailer park surgeon? And will Alex Karev help her through this rough time? Burke too is in jeopardy. After being shot, he is in risk of losing his ability to perform heart surgery, and perhaps in risk of losing Christina. Will Yang stay with Preston if he is no longer a world renowned surgeon? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. And don’t get me started on how excited I am to see my little George O’Malley tonight. The boy is adorable, and I hope he catches a few breaks this season. I’m already in love with his new love Callie (Sara Ramirez) and I hope those crazy kids can find some time for fun.

    In Canada, CTV showed the 2nd ep instead of the premiere. They spoiled everything for us.

    Below is their lame apology:

    “Dear Grey’s Anatomy fan

    As you may be aware, CTV inadvertently broadcast episode 2 of Grey’s Anatomy yesterday. It was not the premiere we were all waiting for.

    As fans of this show ourselves, we understand fully the disappointment and frustration that this has caused.

    To rectify the situation CTV will air the season premiere episode in its entirety at 8pm ET (7pm CT, 9 pm MT/AT and 8pm PT) next Thursday September 28th, 2006.

    Once again we at CTV apologize for the inconvenience this error has caused.

    Thank you
