And I Don't Even Like The Show


So, I figured I would give everyone a TR Knight update. Why the hell not. I don't even really like the show so watching all the drama take place was just kind of humorous to me. I have no vested interest in any of the characters. Now, if they were trying to show Alton Brown the door over at Food Network, then I would be upset.

From what I understand, yesterday US Weekly and a bunch of other mags decided to descend onto the set of Grey's while everyone else worked the phones. Who cares? It is one guy on a show that is collapsing before our eyes. Anyway, US managed to get a statement from some spokes person over at Grey's who said TR had never walked off the set during filming and that he was at the table read yesterday. I never said he had walked off the set during filming. He is not that big of an ass. Plus, the statement didn't say anything about all the other table reads he did miss. TR was on the set yesterday. He and Katherine Heigl kind of stayed by themselves in a corner.

The statement made yesterday by the spokesperson over at Grey's made it all sound like everything is rosy and that everyone is one big happy family. Kind of like the Griswold's at Christmas. Geez. Two Vacation references in consecutive days. That is some kind of record.

According to Entertainment Weekly and The Huffington Post. Seriously? The Huffington Post? You would think they would have something better to do over there. Anyway, they are reporting today that "Multiple sources confirm that T.R. Knight has asked to be released from his contract, a request that both ABC and Grey's show-runner Shonda Rhimes appear poised to grant. "They're working out the details now," whispers an ABC insider. (A network rep was unavailable for comment.)"

I think when TR walked off the set and quit, I think someone reminded him he was under contract and get his butt back to work. But, no one wants an unhappy employee so now he is saying bye bye without having to worry about pesky little things like contracts.

Good for him. Life's too short to be miserable.

Show is officially cooked.

I watched some season 1 episodes last night,and man, they really let that show hit the fan.

selenakyle said...

Never seen it, much like most TV.

Sucks, though, when you're not happy in your job, so I wish him well cuz he seems like a nice enough guy just from reading about him in the blogs.

The show never got my attention even with all the drama that was going on with that Washington guy. I really can't stand Patrick Dempsey even if his nickname is Dr. McDreamy which I can't see anything dreamy about him.

I stopped watching Greys after Izzy and George hooked up and fell in love after he just married his wife. I was on the fence prior to that when Meredith was "dead," for 8 minutes and was back at work the next day. You realize a character sucks when you root for them to die. Get rid of Izzy, Meredith and George and maybe the show will have a shot at salvation. Otherwise, pull the plug.

jax said...

that is a very polite way of saying IN YO FACE!
nice job Enty.

Enty, I have to give you credit! I was skeptical because you were the first to scoop, but you've been cited by several articles (Us Weekly and EW)! I don't care that they are questioning certain parts because it's just AWESOME that you were the first to report it!

And maybe this will quell some of the 'haters' :-)

George and Izzy pairing up started the downhill slide for this show. It still has its moments here and there, but those are few and far between these days.

Did anyone else feel oddly territorial after seeing EL and CDAN everywhere about this? heh heh

MontanaMarriott said...

Well with this economy, there are a million other actors dying for his spot, so, SEE YA

palealebrew10 said...

^^^YES.^^^ And I haven't even been around here for very long, haha.

1 - I think Meredith Grey is one of the most unlikeable characters in television history. I watch the show from time to time but usually choose not to watch it because of her. TR Knight's character WAS kind of endearing, and I loved that he was hooking up with / getting married to Dr. Callie Torres (the only one on that show who deserves any happiness and also looks like she might have a bite to eat from time to time). Now he's just kind of annoying. He's never going to get any other kind of role, he'll always be the shy and charmingly befuddled guy.

2 - On the subject on Alton Brown from the food network. I think he's a virgin.

Mooshki said...

Bad Fish - YES!!! LOL.

Nature Girl said...

I haven't been able to watch Grey's since around the time Denny died. I tuned in again to watch the deer episode...and then I was off of it again. This season, I tuned in just in time to see Izzy shag her dead finance Denny.

As Jax referenced yesterday, the show has jumped the shark, the whale, the f**cking beluga and everything else in the high seas.

Why oh why does 30 Rock have low ratings and millions of people tune in to watch this garbage??

I agree with Harriet - I used to watch Gray's in spite of Meredith, whom I could not stand. The character is whiny, self-absorbed, neurotic, etc. Stopped watching when George and Izzie hooked up - it was like watching a brother and sister hook up. EEEwwwww.

Also agree with Bad Fish - CDAN was being linked to from all over the place today!

Jenny S said...

Harriet and Cali Girl, amen. I wonder if they brought in a sister so the show can still be called Grey's Anatomy after they get rid of Meredith. She is a nightmare, the least likable character to have a show named after her since Ally McBeal.

hope dude doesn't get blacklisted.

woohoo.. Enty's been picked on by the HuffPo. You've made it now! Hopefully no one gets curious and tries to hunt you down. Don't want you to lose your day job, y'know.

KellyLynn said...

<3 Alton Brown. Couldn't care less about TR Knight.

selenakyle said...

Alton Brown is sexy as hell and most assuredly NOT a virgin, perish the thought.

Now, he might TALK you to death before you get off, but...

Katy said...

Just in case, I'll go and *ahem* personally make sure that Alton Brown isn't a virgin!

Anonymous said...

lol and as for whether or not HP has better things to be talking about...

I was linked by them a few weeks ago for posting naked photos of the Prince's peen. And because I'd posted a video of it but then the video went down. I'm not kidding. They'll post about anything. I think this was more worthy than what they linked me for, lol. Personally, I was just thrilled that HP knows I exist.

i take a great personal joy in this one...lol.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I'm going to go Google Alton Brown now because I'm pretty sure I have the wrong guy.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Nope, had the right guy. What the hell is WRONG with you people??? *LOL*

BlahFrickinBlah said...

I saw EL sited over on JustJared yesterday with an added "update" that it wasn't true. LOL With all the bullshit that comes from that show, do you really think they would be honest about yet another problem? They have never been straight about the Heigel (sp?) bullshit so I expect nothing less than bullshit from this incident. It's a damn shame cause this show used to be the shit and now it's just shit. It seemed like they were getting back on track last season but with the Brookegate deal, they just shit the bed again.

Mooshki said...

Holy Cannoli! Enty first broke the news that is now the Featured Story on my Yahoo page! It's the big time, baby!

aanjheni said...

Mmmmm, Alton Brown...

"MERRY CHRISTMAS!

grey's-never watched it.

Lexie said...

Leave it to the gays to cause such drama, too bad its not being filmed 'cause I'll bet T.R is doing his best acting.

it's miley! said...

i also stopped watching after the george/izzie hookup, though i really never liked george with callie... actually i think i never really cared all that much for george, so i couldn't care less about this. now if they only get rid of izzie and meredith, then MAYBE i would start watching again!

my friend started watching a few months ago and at first she couldn't understand why i hated meredith so much but after like 2 or 3 weeks she called and was like "i get it now"

Princess In Exile said...

Love that Enty posted this news first over the Huffington Post...

Ernestine said...

HA HAAAAA! GOOD. GA is PUTRID. Someone needs to euthanize this shitshow before it descends into COMPLETE lunacy.

It would be AWESOME if T.R. went and joined the cast of House!

Mamacita said...

Everybody on this show is now annoying, with the exception of the chick who plays Callie, and Eric Dane. That's little black chick who plays the boss doctor needs to get smacked upside the head. This show jumped the shark after the first season.
