"Why just watch if you can feel?" As new-season slogans go, ABC's feels ... well, a bit clingy and demanding. Back off, ABC. I'll feel you when I'm good and ready.
But the proof is in the programming, and ABC's new fall schedule — unveiled during Tuesday's Lincoln Center upfront presentation — feels like something I'll be spending a fair amount of time analyzing, and perhaps even enjoying, in the season to come. (See the full lineup here.)

It's the question on the mind of every Grey's Anatomy fan: Who will be sticking around Seattle Grace next season?
With several of the actors' contracts up at the end of the season — and creator Shonda Rhimes putting the finishing touches on the finale script as we speak — fans are waiting with bated breath to find out which of their favorite doctors will be returning for Season 9. While there's no official word yet on who will be back, we decided to toss out a few ideas of our own as to how Meredith, Cristina and the rest of the gang could leave. Even though not everyone's contracts are up, we came up with a crazy-but-plausible scenario for everyone — and because some of our favorite couples could get split up, we've added a few scenarios in which one half stays and the other goes. Enjoy!
Rachael Taylor will star opposite Dave Annable in ABC's 666 Park Avenue pilot, TVGuide.com has confirmed. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news.
In the drama...
The doctors of Seattle Grace have put the sex back in Grey's Anatomy. Once a hospital with seemingly daily romps in on-call rooms, now the doctors are taking their extra-curricular activities to board rooms... and cell phones? Yes, this week's Grey's featured a whole lot of sexting between Cristina and Owen, but they weren't the only ones getting it on. Let's check out the top moments from this week's episode, which featured the residents being ever so cautious after seeing one too many bad outcomes:
ABC has officially canceled its Charlie's Angels remake. Production has shut down, but the show will continue to air for the time being, TVGuide.com has learned.
When Season 8 of Grey's Anatomy premieres (Thursday, 9/8c on ABC), Meredith and Derek are on the outs, Alex has been shunned by his fellow Seattle Gracers and Cristina is grappling with whether or not to abort her and Owen's child. But there's oh so much more that will be happening at the hospital so you might need a quick refresher on where we left off — and a juicy tease about what comes next in the doctors' final year of residency.

Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo)
Where Were We? She tampered with the Alzheimer's clinical trial in hopes of saving Adele's life, which caused her to be suspended from the hospital. She also adopted baby Zola, but ended up having a huge fight with Derek.
What's Next? As we've seen in the promos, Meredith will soon be out of a job, but...

Now, Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachael Taylor will join the ranks of their near-exclusive club — one that comes with both halos and fighting skills and even a billionaire boss. The three new angels certainly have some big high heels to fill, but they, along with a much fitter and younger John Bosley (Ramon Rodriguez), are ready for the challenge.

With a sizzling Miami setting and some seriously amped-up action, this season's reboot of Aaron Spelling's campy jigglefest Charlie's Angels is a combo of flash, fashion and escapist fun. But this time, the staff of the Townsend Agency — disgraced cop Kate (General Hospital alum Annie Ilonzeh), ex-con Eve (Friday Night Lights' Minka Kelly), reformed thief Abby (Rachael Taylor of Grey's Anatomy) and former hacker Bosley (The Wire's Ramón Rodriguez) — aren't just a sinfully sexy quartet out to save the day. They're also hoping to give the TV and film franchise one hell of a makeover!
