Private Practice Continues to Generate Buzz

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.

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.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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."
