The notion that Shonda has a lot of power, is wrong. She doesn't control how the episode are schedule or when they aired, ABC does that. She just writes the stories, which this year leave a lot to be desire.
Actually ABC has everything to do with it. ABC orders the amount of episode per season. ABC only ordered 22 epeisode this season because of the musical episode cost too much and it took triple the time it takes to make one episode.
ABC only oreder 22 episode for Private Practice because is not as popular as GA.
The producer need to stop changing the way the story is told. There was nothing wrong with the way the story was being told. The problem is the contrive storylines that they come up with.
They don't need documetary episode, musical episode, or who done it episode to tell the stories of these characters. However I do like the episode where they only focus on one character, like "Give Peace a Chance" which was Derek centric, or "Invest in Love" which was Arizona Centric and "Golden Hour" which was Meredith Centric, and I would've like the musical which was Callie centric if it hadn't been for the music.
I was so disappointed with the musical episode. I was expecting something completly different not the crap we got.
