According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ramirez rocketed into the Top 10 trending topics on Twitter as fans immediately Tweeted their reactions to her performance. A typical one reads: "This is gonna be HUGE for Sara Ramirez. She's a freakin superstar!"
However, Twitter lovers were less unanimous in their assessment of the episode as a whole, with opinions ranging from "Major #fail," to "disappointing," via "BEST EPISODE EVER!!!!!!."
Some, coming late to the party, wondered if the whole thing was an early April Fool's prank.
With Clay Aiken having wrapped up his run as Sir Robin in Spamalot, the Idol quotient on Broadway was down. Fortunately for theatergoers, it's Taylor Hicks to the rescue. Kind of. He's a bit of a step down from Clay Aiken, isn't he? I mean, Clay's new album debuted at number four, and Taylor was dropped from his label.
Whichever way you see it, Hicks will be joining the cast of Grease to take on the role of Teen Angel. Should you be in the area, you can head over to the Brooks Atkinson Theater and hear his version of "Beauty School Dropout." An interesting TV side-note, this production of Grease stars Laura Osnes and Max Crumm. You may remember them as being the winners of the ill-fated NBC show, You're The One That I Want.
Today on TV Squad Daily:
- Crew members of The Shield ran into some real-life resistance while trying to film in a gritty neighborhood in L.A.
- Sara Ramirez of Grey's Anatomy is after a pop music career, with the help of the makers of a Monty Python musical?
- The Pussycat Dolls will finally choose their new member tonight. I'm on team "the girl with bangs."
I'm not gonna lie, I definitely got chills when I initially read the headline. I don't think I'm ready to lose my first Python (Graham Chapman died from cancer back in the late 80s, but I was too young to know what was going on). Here's to hoping Mr. Jones has a speedy recovery.
Now, can anyone tell me why the Internet is really, really great?
