ABC Family premieres Greek tonight

ABC Family - GreekABC Family doesn't get the kind of press that some of their edgier neighbors on the cable box enjoy, but I do appreciate that they make their own original programming, especially their penchant for casting Charisma Carpenter. They could have gone the easy route and given us endless reruns of Reba and Home Improvement.

Tonight they kick off their latest entry, Greek. The dramedy (their description) is set at the fictitious Cyprus-Rhodes University and is said to follow the social minefield of the greek system.

I'm guessing a mix of those National Lampoon movies that go straight to DVD, minus the boobs, with a little Falcon Beach style drama added in for angst. It has potential. The show is produced by some ABC Family veterans that are also responsible for Wildfire, Kyle XY, The Division, and The Dead Zone.

If your summer viewing schedule has an opening and you are curious, more info is available at the show site, or the premiere episode is available for free on iTunes. Greek premieres tonight at 9PM.

ok i absolutely love the show. bt wat is the name of the song that is played at the very end of the show? i think it might be played during the credits but im not sure. usually it plays after the channel shows what the next episode will be. it plays while the screen says pillar/segan or something like that. HELP!!!! i love the song!

. I think "GREEK" i something that a sister and brother can watch together while watching their dad nod in certain places cause he remembered doing that. Beer pong for instance? I hope more people watch Greek so it can be like the new Grey's Anatomy and everybody watches it. p.s Cappie, you are my hero!

In reference to the comments above regarding the name ABC Family...ABC purchased the network from Fox Family which hosted The 700 Club. Unfortunately The 700 Club has an important stipulation in contract that states that anyone who purchases the network will have to keep the name "Family" in their network (ultimately forever). There is more information in Wikipedia, but basically it's a huge hassle to legally change the name. Yes, the name ABC Family may seem deceiving, but I don't think it's wrong at all for them to show some racy shows. They are allowed to show what they want to improve their ratings and give users decent programming. Unfortunately they can't change the name ABC Family otherwise it would be called something else and in my opinion their strategy of showing teen to young adult programming is better than duplicating effort from the Disney Channel (which ABC owns by the way).

What is the theme song? I don't mean the Plain White T's song, I mean the one they play over the credits at the end. It sounds like Feist, but I've looked everywhere and can't find it...Help! By the way, I love the show. Even if it's not realistic, it's entertaining, which is what TV is supposed to be. Plus, Scott Michael Foster is gorgeous. And is no one going to comment on how racy Kyle XY is for ABC Family? That guy got a boner in public, and the younger brother has Playboys hidden in a board game box.

I watched the replay last night on ABC Family ... I didn't watch it on the main ABC station last night ...

They EDITED the show from how it was on Monday night ...

The scene where Rusty goes into the sorority house was shortened ... as well as the scene Casey surprises the pledge in the bathroom stall ... Those were the two most noticable edits ...

Yeah, I know that they had to edit it to make room for the extra commercials ...
