ABC may be saying goodbye to Private Practice in a few weeks, but viewers will be saying hello to new installments of a few veteran shows and two new dramas.

The network has ordered additional episodes of Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Castle and The Middle. This brings the episode totals for Grey's, Modern and Middle to 24, while Castle will air for 23.

Elsewhere, ABC has ordered two more scripts for Last Resort, whose most recent episode improved six percent over the previous one; and 666 Park Avenue, which comes as a surprise because its viewership fell below five million overall viewers last Sunday.

@Aaron Busch: I wouldn't say it was canceled. Sure, Shonda Rhimes had basically given up, but according to her Tweet; ABC and herself came to a mutual agreement to end it. This to me is an equal decision from both parties, therefore it is ending on it's own terms.

Private Practice is now CANCELLED. Agree? Disagree? It doesn't matter what you think because most of the time, these Networks won't hear it. They see you as a statistic, not a Viewer. Despite that, Viewers SHOULD have better input on what truly deserves a place on Television. Otherwise, we end up with shows like CSI: Miami and Harry's Law being replaced with Reality TV that has us scratching our heads. After all, these Networks wouldn't be in business without YOU.

Shonda Rhimes tweeted months ago that Grey's was renewed for 24 episodes, so this isn't really a surprise.
In regards to Modern and Middle, they normally receive a 24 episode order and I'm positive it was announced that they had received 24 episodes months prior.
Overall, it's hardly a surprise and when I first heard about the news, I assumed they had gotten 26 episodes each - which would probably be smarter seeing as Grey's and Modern are the highest rated drama and comedy ABC has to date and has had since both shows launched in 2005 and 2009, respectively.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
