Question: What's your take on the new FX drama The Americans? I'm sort of cautiously optimistic because I love several FX shows, but this one didn't grab me like Justified and the others have. I thought there was way too much action before I got any sort of character development — it drove me nuts to have to follow the opening sequence for so long without any context. I also found myself fascinated by the next-door neighbor/FBI agent (what is the story with his undercover assignment?!) and less so by Phillip (the husband), but Elizabeth (the wife) left me sort of cold. I hope it improves with more episodes. — Amy
Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy proved that Seattle Grace is beyond saving.
Even though Derek and April spent most of the hour running around trying to get other departments to cut their budgets in order to save the ER, it was all for naught:
Bellamy Young and Tony Goldwyn
Scandal's second season is really living up to its name.
Not only has the President of the United States (Tony Goldwyn) asked his wife (Bellamy Young) for a divorce so he can finally be with his mistress (Kerry Washington), but it turns out that he shouldn't even be the POTUS in the first place since Olivia and the rest of the Illuminati rigged the election that put him in the White House. (And here you thought the mystery of Quinn Perkins was a huge secret!)
Scandal Postmortem: Shonda Rhimes answers burning questions!
So what happens next? TVGuide.com caught up with executive producer Shonda Rhimes and the Scandal stars to get your burning questions answered:
Seattle Grace may have to close its doors — at least the ER, for now — unless the doctors of Grey's Anatomy can figure out how to keep the hospital alive. The obvious solution would be for the plane crash survivors, who were each awarded $15 million, to donate their money, but even that may not help.
"It's going to take...

Will the secret that the Five rigged the presidential election come out on Scandal? — Hailee
NATALIE: That's what the — oh my goodness, I love what Shonda Rhimes calls them — Illuminati will hope to prevent in the coming episodes. "There's a splintering of the Illuminati in terms of everyone's agendas and what they're willing to do and who they feel is to blame," she says. "It becomes more fractured as it goes along, and it starts to feel like, for Olivia, that this is the one problem that she can't fix." Ruh-roh.
Got any scoop on Booth from Bones? — Whitney
ADAM: When I asked David Boreanaz about the nagging mystery of Booth's big secret — you know, the one between him and God — I was a bit surprised by the answer...
For days, Grey's Anatomy have been plagued by one question: Will Meredith's McBaby survive?!
Although a promo from this Thursday's episode (9/8c, ABC) featured what appeared to be complications for Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek's (Patrick Dempsey) impending baby, executive producer Shonda Rhimes is here to calm your fears — sort of.
"I would like to point out that...
T.R. Knight hasn't been seen much since he left Grey's Anatomy in 2009. At the time, he cited "a breakdown of communication" with executive producer Shonda Rhimes over a slur by costar Isaiah Washington and what the actor perceived to be a diminished role on the show. With that drama behind him, Knight, 39, is back on screens big and small. Not only is he appearing in the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 (hitting theaters this April), but he has also returned to TV in a big way with a multi-episode arc on The Good Wife, playing a hoodie-wearing political consultant...
As if Arizona hasn't already had a rough year, Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy will see her stricken with an ailment that could be incurable: phantom limb syndrome.
How will Arizona handle the latest hurdle since her amputation? TVGuide.com caught up with Jessica Capshaw, who also discusses how the plane crash survivors may be able to save Seattle Grace and Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona's future. Get the scoop:
[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the series finale of Private Practice. Read at your own risk!]
When Addison (Kate Walsh) showed up at Seattle Grace in the Season 1 finale of Grey's Anatomy, we hated her. She was the salmon-scrub wearing wife of Derek, and darn it, we wanted McDreamy and Mer to get their happy ending. But by the time executive producer Shonda Rhimes sent Addison packing for the Private Practice spin-off, we truly loved her. We hoped she'd find a way to have a child. We hoped she'd find love. We'd hope she'd find happiness. In Tuesday's Private Practice series finale, Addison had finally found it all...
After six seasons, 111 episodes, a backdoor pilot and a revolving door of men, Private Practice will go off the air Tuesday at 10/9c on ABC with Addison finally getting her happy ending: She's getting married to someone she loves — and won't cheat on. (Sorry, Derek!)
Private Practice's series finale to feature Addison's wedding
Addison Forbes Montgomery (Kate Walsh) is set to wed Jake Reilly (Benjamin Bratt), and actually will make it down the aisle. There will be no last-minute change-ups, snafus or curveballs as executive producer Shonda Rhimes has liked to throw at Private fans over the years. TVGuide.com was on set for the momentous occasion, where the cast waxed poetic on saying goodbye to the Oceanside Seaside Wellness group we've come to know and love over the years. What's next for Walsh & Co.? Will they cross over to Grey's Anatomy? And what has it been like saying goodbye? Get the scoop:
