Knitting up a (Ratings) Storm!
Who knew knitting was such draw?

The newest episode of Grey's Anatomy, "Name of the Game," helped ABC to a dominating Sunday ratings victory last weekend. Once again, the show lconvincingly won its time slot in both total viewers and the coveted 18-49 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research.

With an estimated 22.4 million viewers and a 9.9 rating/23 share, Grey's Anatomy edged out its own lead-in, Desperate Housewives (22.1 million, 9.0/21), as the top show of the entire evening. Unfortunately for ABC, along with the show's legions of fans, there won't be a new episode until... hope you're sitting down... April 30.

Until then, we will have to make do with re-runs. The network will air "Something to Talk About" this Sunday. The episode is most memorable for the male patient who insists he is pregnant, and for a sheltered young girl who helps Alex realize, and express, his true feelings for Isobel. While we hate repeats on principle, we can make an exception for G.A. It's just too good!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.
