I think Grey's Anatomy's finale is actually 3 hours.
The first hour is on Sunday, the 14th (part 1) and Part 2 is Monday the 15th - 2 hours

"longest running 'entertainment' 'program' in 'ABC' history"

Testing out "Grey's Anatomy" on Monday for a move there this fall? Makes sense for ABC if they can launch another great show after "Housewives" on Sunday and have something to replace "Monday Night Football" and the crap they've tried on Monday since then.
