Ellen Pompeo Says She'll Stay on 'Grey's Anatomy' if She's Wanted

Ellen PompeoIt seems as though behind-the-scenes contract wrangling is continuing to dog ABC medical drama 'Grey's Anatomy.'

Earlier this summer Patrick Dempsey seemed confused as to whether McDreamy's coming or going, and now Ellen Pompeo says she could be persuaded to stay on after the upcoming season 8.

Pompeo told TV Guide that she's open to the idea of continuing to play Meredith, but that her contract will soon expire and no one's actually asked her to stay on. "I would love the opportunity to discuss it," she says.

"I would never turn up my nose at 'Grey's.' ... If I hear from the fans that they want us to keep going, then I would continue because we owe them everything."

Patrick Dempsey Recalls Getting Yelled at by Michael Bay on 'Transformers 3' Set (VIDEO)

Patrick Dempsey, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Patrick Dempsey was apparently new to the Michael Bay experience when he started working on 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon.' He told David Letterman on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) that he was given pointers by Shia LaBeouf on how to avoid getting yelled at by the director.

"Shia told me never get in his eyeline, always stay behind him," Dempsey said. "So I always put my chair right behind his, so I could see what he was up to and be one step ahead of him."

This worked out pretty well, until one day Dempsey rounded a corner after lunch and got right into Bay's eyeline. "He went off on me for a few minutes," Dempsey admitted, before quickly qualifying his statements by adding, "it's not a bad thing."

Patrick Dempsey Describes Differences in Shooting 'Grey's' and 'Transformers' (VIDEO)

Patrick Dempsey on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'The OR can be a stressful place for Dr. Derek Shepherd, given his stormy relationship with Meredith Grey on 'Grey's Anatomy.' It's also stressful for Patrick Dempsey, who plays Shepherd. Dempsey said Monday on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) that the change of scenery while shooting 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' provided a nice stress release from the day-to-day grind of 'Grey's.'

Dempsey appeared glad that 'Grey's Anatomy' will be coming back for an eighth season, but shed light on some of the job's challenges. "It's very intense because the hours are long and there's so much drama going on each week -- we're together, we're not together, what's happening?" For 'Transformers,' Dempsey got to get outside and play action hero on-set in Chicago, where he said ten city blocks were shut down for filming. "It was a complete rush," he said. "It was a lot of fun."

Derek Shepherd Gets Tough on 'Grey's Anatomy' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 5th 2010 1:09AM
Grey's Anatomy, Patrick DempseyOoh, remember when Derek Shepherd was just another hot doctor at Seattle Grace, making eyes at a certain intern and going about his neurological business?

Now he's the big, bad chief who has to make the hard decisions, whether it's ordering a patient to abide by his wishes or telling the former chief that he'll do that surgery, gosh darnit, and Bailey will assist.

It's ok, though. We know that underneath that snarly business persona beats the heart of a hot doc with great hair on 'Grey's Anatomy' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC).

Patrick Dempsey Gets (Out of) a Speeding Ticket (VIDEO)

Jimmy Kimmel Live, Patrick Dempsey gets out of a speeding ticketWhen actors are on the talk show circuit promoting a movie, it must be challenging coming up with funny stories for every show. Fortunately for Patrick Dempsey – out and about promoting 'Valentine's Day' – he had a new story drop right in his lap.

Seems he got stopped for speeding the morning he was scheduled to go on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC). Turns out it was a female cop who, apparently, was a fan and ended up not giving him a ticket. Not only that, but her gruff male partner appeared to be a fan, too. Interesting.

Patrick Dempsey Wears a Thong on 'Ellen' (VIDEO)

Patrick Dempsey wears a thong on 'Ellen'We had no idea that Patrick Dempsey was such a big fan of Ellen DeGeneres underwear. Apparently, he wears it around the house all the time.

To celebrate, DeGeneres gave him a whole bunch of new underwear when he stopped by 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated). There was red underwear, gold underwear, even rubber underwear.

But the best, by far, was the thong. The 'Grey's Anatomy' (Thurs., 9PM ET on ABC) star was so excited, he put it on right then and there – but darn, on top of his jeans. Oh well, we McDreamy fans can dream, can't we?

Review: 'Grey's Anatomy' - 'State of Love and Trust'

by Michael Pascua, posted Feb 5th 2010 3:05AM
The whole Seattle Grace hospital braces for big news.
(S06E13) There was no reason for 'Grey's Anatomy' to have had a rerun last week. Why didn't the producers start one week later? Either way, Derek takes over Seattle Grace this week as the chief and struggled on his first day. While he managed to figure everything out by the end of the day, it's nice to see Derek's evolution handling the responsibilities.

The Chief, or I guess he's just now demoted to "Richard," struggled with his decision to retire or go to rehab for the whole episode. While Derek, Meredith, and Bailey tried to talk to him, it was all his decision to make the next step. Here's hoping that he comes back stronger than ever.

grey's anatomy scandalMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started earlier today. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the decade's biggest TV scandals.

Who doesn't like a little drama? We love it here at TV Squad. Of course, its usually the scripted kind that we obsess over, not the real-life variety. But it was hard to escape all of the behind-the-scenes scandals going on during the Aughts.

The backstage drama often spilled out onto the tube, in talk show interviews, reality series, and with the 24-hour news networks looking to fill time and boost their ratings. Needless to say, we had little trouble picking our top TV scandals of the '00s.

Dempsey makes an appearance as a celebrity volunteer and thrills the oldest daughter of the family, and Sandler bestows a gift of signed hockey sticks while delivering a special message to the six-year-old Cameron.

Simon CowellMore proof that nice guys don't finish first: The two best-paid men on primetime TV this year were Simon Cowell and Donald Trump.

Forbes' new top 10 list of the best-paid men in primetime estimates that the 'American Idol' judge took home $75 million last year, while the 'Apprentice' kingpin earned $50 million from his entertainment ventures. Like many on the list, Cowell and Trump have diverse showbiz holdings that earn them much more than just the salaries they get for their on-air appearances on primetime reality shows.

Review: Grey's Anatomy - Invest in Love

A party for Arizona doesn't turn out so well.
(S06E08) This episode of Grey's Anatomy shows that Grey's can be strong without having a Grey sister (or Izzie) involved. All the other characters are strong on their own, and it's nice seeing Arizona evolve as a character. Sadly, these episodes will come to an end next week.

I still laugh that pagers are still the standard for communicating with doctors outside of work. It's interesting to see the doctors dreading the fact that they didn't get enough sleep.

Who thinks of throwing a surprise birthday party anymore? I guess I'd rather take the $25 million donation to the hospital.

Review: Grey's Anatomy - Give Peace a Chance

by Michael Pascua, posted Oct 30th 2009 3:00AM
The doctors of Seattle Grace work on a surgery.
(S06E07) This week's episode of Grey's Anatomy focused on Derek and evolved the character as someone that's not just McDreamy. The show should start with Patrick Dempsey talking more often. I didn't realize how mellow his voice was, though saying the words "calm," "quiet," and "peace" automatically sound calming. I hope he narrates a Disney movie soon.

If the show continues to be strong with character driven development per episode, I suggest keeping Meredith bed ridden. She's already forgiven her father and has strengthened her relationship with her sister. Let's evolve the rest of the one-dimensional characters while she stays in bed.

Jane After Dark: Grey's Anatomy season five; Private Practice season two

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 4th 2009 10:00AM
Grey's Anatomy, season five dvdWith Grey's Anatomy and its spin-off Private Practice starting new seasons, I decided to refresh my brain with the previous seasons of these two ABC shows. So this week's Jane After Dark was all about the dreamy doctors.

I've been on board with Private Practice since the beginning, and was especially interested to see what happened with Violet and her baby in the season three premiere. Happy ending there, thank goodness! And while Grey's Anatomy has certainly ebbed and flowed since it began in 2005, I've stuck with it because I've grown to love the dysfunctional characters with all their baggage. It makes my life seem just that much better.

Grey's Anatomy, Season Five

There were parts of this season that drove me a little nuts, like Izzie having "mind-boggling sex" with dead Denny. That whole storyline made me want to jump off a roof, but there were plenty of highlights to the season, as well...

Is Derek Shepherd a supporting character?

by Michael Pascua, posted Jun 19th 2009 3:07PM
Patrick Dempsey as Derek Shepherd on Grey's AnatomyWith the Emmy announcements inching closer, one for your consideration caught me off guard. Patrick Dempsey is not a Lead Actor this year. He is throwing his name into the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category. Why is Patrick Dempsey announcing that he is a supporting character? I think several storylines this season of Grey's Anatomy (especially his breakdown and his proposal) are lead actor moments.

Is Patrick Dempsey scared of his competitors? Probably. ABC wants to get an Emmy in any form or fashion and they are probably clearing the path for Lost or Brothers and Sisters to make a stab for lead.
