Two-Hour Grey's Anatomy Finale Set For May 22

at . Comments

The return of three hits - Grey's Anatomy, Lost and Ugly Betty - to ABC's Thursday night lineup has made scheduling a bit tricky for the network.

Especially regarding the season finales of each.

The network's original plan was for the two-part Lost finale to air over two nights, and have all three shows end on the same evening, May 22.

However, sources confirm that the Lost finale has been rescheduled, making room for a two-hour Grey's Anatomy season finale.

ABC's changes to the final weeks of its Thursday lineup:

  • On May 15, Part I of the Lost finale will follow new episodes of Grey's Anatomy (9 p.m.) and Ugly Betty. Nothing new.
  • There will be no Lost on May 22. The Ugly Betty finale (8 p.m.) and the new, two-hour Grey's Anatomy finale will air instead.
  • On May 29, ABC has scheduled an encore of Part I of the Lost finale, followed by the two-hour, second installment of it.
Two-Hour Grey's Anatomy Finale Set For May 22

So, that extra hour to close the tumultuous Season Four on May 22 is like another full episode of Grey's Anatomy if you want to look at it that way!

The first episode back, "Where the Wild Things Are," is set for April 24 (not that we have a countdown going on here or anything). "Piece of My Heart" will air May 1, and "The Becoming" is scheduled for May 8. That leaves us with one more (currently unnamed) Grey's Anatomy episode for May 15 and then the two-part finale.

hahah rose is so bad for derekk , i can't wait for themm to get back togehter!!


It is the SEASON finale, right? Not the SERIES finale? cuz i think id die if there was no more grey's anatomy!!!


OMG you guys are right !
I never say that promo before.
Eiwwww Derek and Rose kissing again *Pukes* !!!
Oh man, this sucks !
How can Meredith and Derek be together again by episode 5, when he's still kissing Rose in the 1st episode ??!! That's impossible !


I watched the promo for the new episodes, and I'm thinking the same thing with Derek and Rose. I saw pics. from episodes to come, and the kiss in the promo must've been really ackward. Derek and Rose are (maybe were) in the same elevator as Mer and Addison. EEW...I really hate rose.


OMG mcdreamylove1 thats what i was thinking. i think Mer is watching and that is why he kissed her. its like he pulls her in for a kiss out of the blue. she wasnt expecting it. and it would be so like derek to do that!!!!


yuck. rose.
i hate her.
yay for the two hour season finale! i cant wait!
it would be awesome if rose fell into a ditch and died. =)


hey omg so excited but if you see this promo for all the new shows it shows derek kissing uhh..rose. but the kiss seems akward like you know meredith was watching or something.....


YES!YES! OMG i cannot wait!
totally agree with you jessie!! GO GREYS!


the best thing about this is. only 4 WEEKS until MerDer get together instead of five and we get rid of Mcnursewhore............ OMG SO EXCITED!!!


If anyone wants to see the new promo for the new episode next week it's on youtube and


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


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."
