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

Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) is faced with a dilemma on Tuesday's episode of Dads: Will he choose his wife Camila (Vanessa Lachey) or his best friend Eli (Seth Green) to be his partner in a tennis tournament?

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!
As an object lesson in the extremes of new fall TV, welcome to Fox's new and not entirely improved Tuesday comedy lineup. (Unhappily missing in action, but for how long: Raising Hope, currently designated to return for its fourth season in the Friday swamplands in early November with back-to-back episodes, a scenario few believe will ever occur.)

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.

Fox is standing by its new fall comedy.
The network declined to reshoot portions of Dads, despite the Media Action Network for Asian-Americans' plea that Fox fix or remove scenes it deemed racist, Deadline reports.
Yeah, but whose turn is it to take out the garbage? The kicky new Disney XD toon series Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (premiering Sunday, Aug. 11 at 11am/10c) is a mix of high-octane action and screwball comedy that finds the incredible Hulk — voiced by Marvel vet Fred Tatasciore — fighting the usual assortment of intergalactic baddies while also living with four other gamma-radiated Hulks under the same roof.
The roomies include She-Hulk (Eliza Dushku), A-Bomb (Seth Green), Skaar (Ben Diskin) and Red Hulk (Clancy Brown), plus their T-Rex pet, Devil Dinosaur.
"They're trying to prove to the world that they're heroes, not destructive monsters," says Tatasciore. "But it doesn't always go so well. To help the PR campaign along, Hulk reluctantly lets A-Bomb film their family life for a reality web series." Which means the big green grunter has to work on his charm. Cracks Tatasciore: "He will actually speak in complete sentences!"
