Having had little luck getting new drama series launched this season, ABC has decided a "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff might be in order. The new drama would star one of the doctors of Seattle Grace -- Kate Walsh's character, neonatal surgeon Addison Montgomery. And Taye Diggs, who starred in ABC's short-lived "Day Break," also has been signed. The pilot will take the form of a "Grey's" episode -- in this case, a two-hour installment centered on Addison on the brink of leaving the hospital.

Chandra Wilson, who stars as Dr. Miranda Bailey on the ABC series "Grey's Anatomy," knows what it's like on the other side of the prescription pad. And she knows what it's like to advocate for an ill child. Her 20-year-old daughter has long struggled with mitochondrial disease, disorders caused by problems with the mitochondria, which generate energy for the cells. -- How did you first know that something was wrong? The first manifestations were cyclical vomiting syndrome.

The Television Critics Assn. Press Tour, the semiannual gathering of television journalists from around the country that began July 8, continues at the Beverly Hilton. We offer these dispatches. -- A mystery journalist, claiming to work for the Sarasota Star Herald Tribune, appeared at the Beverly Hilton on Wednesday to demand answers from ABC President of Entertainment Stephen McPherson. The reporter wanted to know if it was true that ABC, the network that is home to "Jimmy Kimmel Live," is actively courting Jay Leno, who is going to be a free agent in 2009 when NBC replaces him with Conan O'Brien as the new host of "The Tonight Show."

T.R. Knight has asked to be released from his contract with "Grey's Anatomy," a person with direct knowledge of the situation said Tuesday. The actor, who plays Dr. George O'Malley, has asked to leave the ABC medical drama because he is unhappy with his story line, the person said. Knight has three years left on his contract and the network has indicated it will release him, said the insider, who could not be identified due to being unauthorized to discuss negotiation details. An ABC representative declined comment.

ON a chilly winter evening, the television portion of the Golden Globes turned "Ugly" and "Grey." The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. celebrated "Ugly Betty" in the best comedy series category, and "Grey's Anatomy" won best dramatic series. It was a double victory for ABC and Touchstone, the studio that produces both shows.

Less than one hour after e-mailing an interview request to an actor's manager, the telephone rang. It wasn't a publicist demanding to know the parameters of the interview, where the story would be placed or how big the photographs would be. It was the actor himself, and in his unassuming way, he agreed to meet with a reporter. This is not how it usually happens in Hollywood, but T.R. Knight doesn't seem interested in most things Hollywood.

Gay rights activists expressed satisfaction after meeting with "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington, who is under fire for using a gay slur about a costar. "He seemed very sincere in his interest in working with us in an ongoing basis," said Kevin Jennings, executive director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. "We emphasized that this is not a one-shot deal, but an ongoing thing. He was very open to doing this."

The young docs beat the forensic cops. ABC's bold move to shift "Grey's Anatomy" to one of television's most competitive nights against CBS powerhouse "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" paid off handsomely, delivering a clear ratings victory to a network that had been largely forgotten on Thursday nights for years. "Grey's Anatomy" opened its third season by drawing an estimated 25 million viewers, while "CSI" attracted 22 million, according to early data from Nielsen Media Research.

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"?

The premise IN the season finale of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," one of the surgical interns, Dr. Izzie Stevens (played by Katherine Heigl), crosses an ethical line by becoming romantically involved with a potential heart transplant patient, Denny Duquette (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan). He has signed a Do Not Resuscitate order, but Izzie gives him hope that he will get a heart in time. When two brothers are mortally injured in a car accident, it seems as if Denny will get a heart.

Callie and Erica's burgeoning romance on "Grey's Anatomy" is coming to an abrupt end, and so is Brooke Smith's role as Dr. Erica Hahn. Smith's final appearance as Dr. Callie Torres' flame comes in this Thursday's episode of ABC's medical drama, the network said. The move was a creative decision and unrelated to the sexual orientation of Smith's character, said series creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes.

Like surgeons, television viewers see death on a regular basis. Especially this season. Whether it was the almost instant failure of the much trumpeted "Bionic Woman" or the last-minute tragic demise of "Aliens in America," TV has had a fairly high mortality rate. So when you see a show, trapped in a potentially fatal spiral, emerge from its coma, blink a few times, then rise from the bed like a wounded action hero, it is worth taking a few moments to rejoice. "Grey's Anatomy" is totally and seriously back.

Well, now we know what the writers of "Grey's Anatomy" were doing during the strike, when they weren't walking the picket lines, of course. They were watching "House." Thursday night marked the first new episode of "Grey's" in many, many months. Not content with beating a fellow medical drama out of the post-strike box by a few days -- the first new "House" airs Monday -- show runner Shonda Rhimes seems to be poking gentle fun at, and paying homage to, the strange powers of rivals at Fox. First there was the residents' contest, in which Meredith (Ellen Pompeo)

To spend time with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, the executive producers who run "Grey's Anatomy" and its spinoff, "Private Practice," is to be introduced to their linguistic particularities. There is, for example, "Grey Co.," the term they've devised to describe the tonnage of work that goes into overseeing the production, merchandising and musical supervision of "Grey's Anatomy," the immensely successful ABC drama-soap.

So are they firing Isaiah Washington or what? No doubt, the final scene of the season finale of "Grey's Anatomy" left many viewers wondering if the tears Cristina was crying after being ditched at the altar were of heartbreak or relief, but some of us were more curious if her anguished "He's gone" referred to Burke, her former fiance, or the man who plays him. Washington, of course, was the center of a scandal earlier this year after he referred to cast member T.R.

Isaiah Washington has blamed racism for playing a part in his public excoriation for homophobia and his eventual firing from ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," according to Newsweek magazine online. "If a black man can't get forgiveness in this country, when so many other people like Robert Downey Jr. and the governor of California get second and third chances ... I think that says a lot about race and this country where we stand," the magazine quoted Washington as saying.
