I can’t take this much longer. It seems so cruel and unfair. How, I ask, can the networks let us go this long without a fresh episode of our favorite shows?
OK, fine. They do let us go all summer and somehow we manage to subsist on the crumbs they throw us. But during December? During the holidays? When we need an escape from the family and the kids more than any other time of year? When we’ve become trained, Pavlov-style, to expect a new episode every Thursday night?
It’s been three long weeks—heck, it feels like three years—since I’ve watched a fresh episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.” Will I be out of my misery by next Thursday?
Of course, to satisfy my near rabid level of curiosity, I’ll need to check out the TV listings online. This time, let’s see how TVGuide.com does.
For starters, the site has got a ton of info and video for movies and TV shows. But my mission is singular. I bypass all the video. I spot the listings at the bottom of the page, but then I also see a link just for “Grey’s Anatomy.” I am powerless to resist. The link brings me to a page full of show information with the listings info right there at the bottom.
It’s hard for me to tell you what I learned though. The next fresh episode isn’t until Jan. 11.
But Lifetime starts its run of Grey’s on Jan. 7 with the first episode ever. Maybe it’ll feel new to me.
But, hey, at least we learned that TVguide.com has got a great TV listings page. I suppose I shall take some comfort in that.
