Melissa George parts ways with Seattle Grace, Fox pulls the plug on 'Prison Break' and more ...

'Prison Break' can't seem to catch a break. Today, Fox announced the network is pulling the plug on the break-out series after just four seasons. The final four episodes are scheduled to air beginning Apr. 17 at 8PM.

Meanwhile, Melissa George is saying goodbye to 'Grey's Anatomy.' The actress, who plays Dr. Sadie Harris, says she's leaving 'Grey's' to do other things, but insists the decision was amicable. Hard to believe, given the show's history. But we'll take her word for it.
