Grey's Anatomy Cast Tops Magazine's List of 2006's Best Entertainers
The cast of Grey's Anatomy tops Entertainment Weekly's list of the year's top entertainers because of their cultural impact, the magazine said.
The year-end issue of Entertainment Weekly hits U.S. newsstands starting Friday with its widely watched lists of the year's top picks in movies, music, TV, books and many other categories.
Entertainment Weekly said the cast of Grey's Anatomy - McDreamy, McSteamy and all the others - led the chart of top entertainers because they had a cultural impact beyond their show's roughly 20 million weekly viewers. In addition, the episodes - filled with sexual affairs and career problems - sparked chatter around offices, schools and homes across the U.S.
"Grey's Anatomy isn't just a show, it's a phenomenon," said Entertainment Weekly Executive Editor Lori Majewski.
"Back in May when last season's final show aired, every place in New York City was empty. You could get a table at the best restaurants."
Congrats to the Grey's Anatomy cast from the Insider!
