Demi Lovato Gets Serious on 'Grey's Anatomy'

Demi Lovato will guest star in an upcoming episode of Grey's AnatomyOr maybe the title should be 'Another Disney Star Sees the Writing on the Wall.' Lately, a number of Disney Channel mainstays like Miley Cyrus and Ashley Teasdale are seeing their lucrative teeny bop days ending and they're moving towards different roles. Makes sense, of course. It just seems every time this happens, these actors go in the totally opposite direction (I'm looking at you, Ms. Elizabeth 'Showgirls' Berkley).

Hopefully, Demi Lovato doesn't head down that road. It doesn't seem likely, since she's been acting for years (she was in the cast of 'Barney & Friends' with Selina Gomez). Plus, she already had a taste of dramatic acting with a role in FOX's 'Prison Break' back in 2006.

With that accumulated experience, her guest stint as a schizophrenic patient on an upcoming May episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' should work out. Look for ratings to skyrocket as tweens ask their parents to stay up late on a school night to watch (and ask why everyone is having sex with everyone else at Seattle Grace).

The Office: Fun Run (season premiere)

Ah, there they are, my imaginary friends!(S04E01) We had a lot of discussion last year about The Office's precarious balance of sitcom-type humor and soap-opera drama. There were times when the Pam/Jim/Karen/Roy love quadrangle threatened to overwhelm the show. Other times, Michael's increasingly cartoonish boss went so far off the reservation as to completely shake our suspension of disbelief.

If anything, tonight's episode proved while the sitcom elements are certainly important, it's the soap opera that gives us our unique connection to these characters. I don't know about you guys, but seeing Michael and Jan and Angela and Dwight and, most especially, Pam and Jim back on the small screen felt like slipping out for some coffee with my old friends.

Yes, I'm completely aware that this feeling might be the beginning stages of paranoid schizophrenia, but I don't care because The Office is back! On to the review...
