Hey, "Grey's Anatomy" fans. We've got some extra great news for you guys that we think you'll certainly enjoy hearing. Recently, the folks over at Deadline recently put out a report revealing that ABC is so pleased with the way the current season 14 is going that they decided to extend it! That's right. Apparently, ABC only originally ordered 22 episodes for this season, but now they've bumped that number up to a full 24. That means you guys can expect to get an additional two more episodes before this season is over. How do you guys feel about that? We're sure most of you are ecstatic about it. In addition to ABC extending out Grey's Anatomy's 14th season, Deadline also reported that ABC gave their hit comedy series "Black-ish" another two episodes, and they gave their show American Housewife another two episodes. That gave both of those series a total 24 episodes each.

Hail Mary: Why Mary Tyler Moore Was the Greatest

Hail Mary: Why Mary Tyler Moore Was the Greatest
The most unforgettable moment from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, out of dozens of contenders: Mary sits at the bar with her newsroom co-workers, drinking their sorrows away. They've had a grim day – her cranky boss Lou Grant just attended his ex-wife's wedding, while he's still reeling from the divorce, so the others tagged along for moral support. Pompous anchorman Ted Baxter tries to lighten the mood with a knock-knock joke. Lou growls, "Ted, this better be a pretty funny knock-knock joke. I lost a wife today." It's a godawful joke.

'Difficult People': How Julie Klausner Graduated from TV Superfan to TV Queen

'Difficult People': How Julie Klausner Graduated from TV Superfan to TV Queen
"When did comedies become half-hour dramas?"

These words, uttered by Billy Eichner via the acid pen of Julie Klausner in the newly launched second season of her Hulu sitcom Difficult People, come from a place of love. Klausner loves TV like a mother loves her child – which is to say she always wants it to do and be better. A lifelong acolyte of the medium, she's spent most of her life hovering around its fringes – consuming it by the binge-ful, recapping shows online, eventually landing staff writing gigs here and there.

'Difficult People': Everything You Need to Know
Throughout TV history, there have been plenty of duos who've had the sort of close-knit, we-can-finish-each-other's-sentences friendships you don't often see in real life: Mary and Rhoda, Chandler and Joey, Abbi and Ilana. Add Difficult People's double act to that list — although the lead characters' Bff bond may be the only good thing they have going for them. Part of Hulu's latest round of original series (the first two episodes start streaming today), the cringe-comic sitcom stars Billy on the Street's Billy Eichner and comedian Julie Klausner as thirtysomething pals who are trying,

Friends is never coming back and as a fan, I'm grateful

Courteney Cox has insisted Friends won't return, in contrast to rumours about a Will & Grace reunion. That's good to hear

The cast of Will & Grace may be on the verge of a reunion, but Courteney Cox has given Friends fans the ultimate gift: confirmation that the comedy will never return. It's not gonna happen, she told David Letterman emphatically on Monday night.

And praise the Central Perk gods that be, because TV reunions rarely live up to the hype. Take Growing Pains and its cast, who, after the series ended in 1992, teamed up for not one, but two (two!) terrible TV movies. Equally cheesy was each Brady Bunch reunion, while in terms of disappointment, 2000s Mary and Rhoda trumped them all especially since the ABC film based on the famous 70s characters barely mentioned the lives theyd lived during their weekly episodes. Imagine a Friends mini-movie with no mention of

The Wednesday Playlist: Mtm's Cleveland Reunion, Futurama Finale, Comedies on Fxx

At the risk of mixing one's classic-comedy metaphors ... While watching the ladies of The Mary Tyler Moore Show reunite for a chipper if undeniably poignant exercise in meta nostalgia on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland (Wednesday, 10/9c), you might find yourself wistfully recalling the old Carol Burnett Show theme: "I'm so glad we had this time together." This is especially true for the iconic buddy duo of Mary and Rhoda, with Mary Tyler Moore appearing even more frail than Valerie Harper, whose inspiring public battle with brain cancer pretty much defines the quality once attributed to Mary Richards: "spunk."

Let's Pick Valerie Harper's Best "Mary Tyler Moore Show" Moment

No. No. No. 

The extremely talented, beloved, and gorgeous Valerie Harper just announced that she has terminal brain cancer, and if you're a human with human insides, this should destroy you.

According to People, she may have only three months to live. This is especially shocking considering Harper was just on a book tour for her memoir I, Rhoda. I'll take this sad story, which comes right on the heels of Bonnie Franklin's death from pancreatic cancer, as an opportunity to revisit her work on only the greatest sitcom of the '70s (take that, Archie!), The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

What's Rhoda Morgenstern's greatest moment, guys?

I'm going obvious here, but I have to pick the episode "Rhoda the Beautiful," where everyone starts complimenting Rhoda on her weight-loss, and she's both uncomfortable and heartened by the attention. Then Rhoda enters a beauty contest at work, and her way

Charlie Day: 5 Things to Know About the Horrible Bosses Star
He's the breakout star of Horrible Bosses, fighting off Jennifer Aniston's advances - and getting a little out of it during a certain vacuum scene. Still, fans of FX's raunchy hit, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, already know actor Charlie Day, 35, as the show's lovable (but oh-so-weird) Charlie, whose character has a penchant for killing rats in the basement of Paddy's Pub and dressing up in a neon green leotard as the unofficial mascot of the Philadelphia Phillies, Green Man. But there's so much more to Day, and here's your chance to get to know the scene-stealer before It's Always Sunny
