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.

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.

i love Kate Walsh!!! She is the best!!!! She is so beautiful!!! i love her very much!!


Yeah i hate pilot. But after all spoilers, promos and everything I so can´t wait.


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.


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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
