Private Practice Continues to Generate Buzz

by at . Comments

The pilot of Private Practice, embedded in the two-part, May 3 episode of Grey's Anatomy, left much to be desired, but the spin-off has been received very well by critics this summer, raising hopes for Kate Walsh's new series.

With its veteran, talented cast, many observers feel Private Practice will appeal to a smaller, slightly older audience than Grey's Anatomy, but it has a lot going for it - the good will of many Grey's fans, and a strong, familiar lead character fronting the cast in Walsh's Dr. Addison Montgomery.

Kate Walsh in Entertainment Weekly

In any case, the buzz surrounding the spin-off is growing. Star Kate Walsh is on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly advertising the new fall season.

Here's a new promo released by ABC for the new series. Private Practice is set to debut Wednesday, September 26 at 9 p.m., just 24 hours before the Season Four premiere of Grey's Anatomy.

In an interesting strategy, ABC is stacking Wednesday night with its three hottest new shows - Private Practice, Dirty Sexy Money and Pushing Daisies - to make the most of each in hopes that all three shows become successes.

Personally i didn't think addison was that strong in the so called premiere, she was kinda weak. It wasn't addison it was KW. Not saying that KW is weak but it was more her personality than addison's, complete character change.
