Women Love Both Dempsey, Clooney!

Forget the young studs. George Clooney and Grey's Anatomy's Patrick Dempsey mopped the floor with their younger competition in a recent poll among Lifetime Television viewers nationwide, in which respondents chose celebrities they'd most like to date.

According to the poll, if a woman were to special-order herself a celebritydate, George Clooney cleaned up with 39 percent of the vote, dominating the likes of Nick Lachey (14 percent), Colin Farrell (10), Orlando Bloom (9), Derek Jeter (8) and Jake Gyllenhaal (6).

When it comes to TV doctors who get their heartbeats racing, there was no answer for Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd, played by heart throb Dempsey. With 40 percent of the vote, the 40-year old handily trumped Noah Wylie (21 percent), Julian McMahon (12) and Matthew Fox (12).

One of the top-rated basic cable networks, Lifetime caters primarily to the female set. The Lifetime Television Pulse Poll, a long-running, multi-platform research project, explores a wide range of areas of women's lives.

The poll also asked Lifetime viewers some more realistic things, such as what traits they v

alue in a prospective mate - one they might actually meet. Finding someone who treats them well (98 percent), who has a good sense of humor (84 percent) and is intelligent (72 percent) seemed to be the goal of most viewers.

While it's hard to see how someone wouldn't vote for Dempsey, the 2 percent of voters who don't think it's important to be treated well is more perplexing still. In any case, it would be interesting to see how Clooney would fare against Dempsey, were the former still on ER. Who do you think is better looking?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
