Question: I've decided it's time to ask you how would you like to see Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang) leave Grey's Anatomy. This might come up more often as the season nears an end in May, but I can't stop thinking about it. While I love Cristina and aspire to be as fierce as she is, I think they should kill her off, but not in a mean way — in a way that could build a great emotional arc for Kevin McKidd (Owen). I think they should have one more romp in the sack where she gets pregnant and he convinces her to keep the baby this time, only to lose Cristina during the birth! I know I sound all evil genius right now, but I think that would give Owen more issues than he can handle and I think it will bring all those close to Cristina (especially Meredith) to a level of respecting Cristina's initial decision to never have kids. Just my thoughts. I think her exit will be flawless. Shonda Rhimes is a TV goddess and I'm sure will make us all proud. — Erica

Seth McFarlane's freshman comedy Dads, which has caused a stir because of its possibly offensive material, has been given a full-season order, Fox announced Friday.
"Fox has been looking to break into the multi-camera format for some time," Fox's Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, said in a statement. "With...

One month after its debut, Fox's Dads is still making no apologies for its raunch.
A new poster for the comedy highlights the words "hilarious" and "irreverent." (This week's episode featured Giovanni Ribisi's character getting a rectal exam — during which his doctor dies.) Check out our exclusive first look at the new artwork below.

On this week's episode of Dads, Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) and his doctor get uncomfortably close — and it looks like they're going to stay that way for a while.
Fox's Dads has been hailed as the most offensive new show of the fall, both by criticsand by the network itself (yay for spin marketing!). But while offensive humor certainly has its merits, the "humor" portion is a necessary component for it to do so. Dads is offensive without being funny — and that's the show's biggest problem.
In the premiere episode alone, Dads managed to disparage Asians, women, gays and Muslims, among others (don't worry, Jews get their turn in Episode 2). But the one-liners land with a clunk rather than a zing. In case you didn't watch the premiere, here's a rundown of the most eyebrow-raising jokes. Did it live up to the hype? You be the judge!

If there's one new fall show that everyone seems to have an opinion about, it's Dads, the new Fox comedy from the production team behind Family Guy. Based on the pilot episode alone, the show has been derided as "racist," "offensive" and "morally wrong" by critics. But Fox is using the backlash as a selling point — using such comments in promos for the show to try to foster tension between fans and (in the network's telling) and out-of-touch critics. And the show's producers — Seth MacFarlane, Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin of Family Guy, along with former Simpsons showrunner Mike Scully — don't seem to mind the negative attention either.
"We're used to it. That's what we do," Wild tells TVGuide.com.
