Look! Look at What to TiVo! You know what word isn't there? Repeat. At long last, it feels like a normal Thursday, full of my favorite comedies and soapy dramas. Welcome back, television!
Tonight really belongs to ABC, which premieres its dream-team lineup of Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, and Lost for the first time. I've already checked in with Betty and the cast's awesome video podcast, and compared to the other shows, I haven't been missing Lost for quite as long. So that leaves our friends at Seattle Grace to spotlight on this night of new, new, new TV.
When things pick up, it's six weeks after we last checked in with Seattle's finest. That means Derek and Rose have been dating for six weeks, Callie and Cristina have managed to live together for a while without killing each other, and Lexie and George are now roommates in a squalid new place. This episode finds the residents competing in some sort of surgical contest judged by Bailey, while Callie forges a friendship with Erica Hahn (countdown to Cristina explosion: 3, 2, 1 . . . ).
Shonda Rhimes has let a few things slip about what's coming up — the brief return of Addison, some developments with Meredith and Derek — and I'm ready to kick things off tonight. What about you? To check out some clips, just read more.
