In other TV news ...

Melina Kanakaredes won't be returning to send her character off, but that won't stop the team behind 'CSI: NY' from sending her character off in style. "We're giving her a noble exit," Zachary Reiter, co-executive producer, told Auisello Files. "We chose not to go the route of killing her off or having her go missing. We felt that would weigh too heavily on the team."

Instead of a big dramatic exit, Kanakaredes' character will quietly have moved to New Orleans to run a lab. "[S]he picked that city because it's the city of Katrina, the city of BP oil, the city where people are looking for someone to lend a hand," Pam Veasey, showrunner of the series, told Michael Ausiello. "We wanted to do something that was respectful and made a lot of sense."

• BET has ordered a new comedy pilot from 'Girlfriends' star Tracee Ellis Ross. According to Deadline Hollywood, the show will follow psychiatrist Dr. Carla Reed (Ross) as she tries to balance her home life and work. Writer Kellie Griffin and Arthur Harris will co-executive produce the pilot.

• The CW debuted makeover show 'Plain Jane' to lackluster ratings. According to LiveFeed, 'Jane' received a preliminary rating of 0.4 among adults 18-49 and a million viewers overall.

• Vampire-hating Rev. Steve Newlin will be back on 'True Blood' this season. Mike McMillian told MTV the good reverend will be back, but couldn't divulge any other details.

"Jennifer Grey, is this the little girl from down the street or what. I am a huge fan of Jennifer and a huge fan of the HOUSE T.V. series. I would hope she would join the group as a full time Doctor on the series." from the desk of: The Father of Dotillism. The PopDot Artist Alabama Byrd.

Oh please. The crazies are always turning everything into anti-religion or, more specifically here, anti-Catholic. House is an atheist--a fact that he makes no bones about. However, his underlings and the occasional patient let him know that he will not undermine their views about God no matter what he says. Of course, people like you are too stupid to see that. More people are driven away from a belief in God by so-called "christians" (deliberately not capitalized, as only real Christians deserve the capitalization) than by those who don't believe or don't know what to believe.

I wish the writers of articles like this actually knew how to write. "a mom whose infant daughter may be life threatening ill?" Please try to find people who can actually create a coherent sentence!

Jennifer Grey is Jennifer Grey, no matter what her
nose is or isn't. She does take her acting seriously and we can't wait to see her work again, and she is as attractive as ever, nose or no nose..
We have missed her on screen...Way to go, Jennifer !

No. Years ago I heard that she STOPPED GETTING acting jobs after she got her nose fixed and she regretted it. She wasn't trying to lay low.

If you look her up on imdb.com you'll see she's had many acting jobs since 'Dirty Dancing'. The latest was in 2009 on 'The New Adventures of Old Christine'.

Love the show House, watching a marathon of it on USA right now! Can't wait for the new season in Sept!! I think she'll do a great job!

I so wish Jennifer Grey hadn't gotten her nose "fixed." I loved the way she looked in Dirty Dancing...she was unique and IMO very pretty. I don't know...sometimes I think folks go too far with the surgery.
