That you probably will find that comparison in every review you read of the series, which begins tonight on ABC — in the "Grey's Anatomy," slot — is nothing I can do anything about. But there is no way I can leave it out of this one. I don't say this to warn you off — indeed, it may be just the hook that snares you — only to tell you where we are.

There was more good news for ABC as the new season continued to unfold Thursday night: The serial drama "FlashForward" delivered 12.5 million viewers and won the hour among adults ages 18 to 49 in its 8 p.m. premiere, according to Nielsen. It was the first time a regular series beat "Survivor" in that prized demographic since 2004, when NBC's "Friends" did it. That and the two hours of "Grey's Anatomy" that followed drove ABC to the top for the night in viewers, with 15.51 million.

So before we begin, let's just ask: Did anyone else wonder why the opening of Thursday night's "Grey's Anatomy," in which Meredith, overcome by her mother's condition and the weight of a thousand voice-overs, sinks under water in a wide, white claw-foot tub, would go out of its way to invoke the poster for the Harrison Ford/Michelle Pfeiffer thriller "What Lies Beneath"?
