Mary Louise Parker Memoir
Parker, 50, announced her memoir, titled Dr. Mr. You, in a press release. “I am so honored and thrilled to be working with Scribner and in the company of such wonderful writers,” said the actress.
As for Scriber, they’re wholly excited to have Parker joining their list of impressive memoirists. “From Frank McCourt to Jeannette Walls to Anjelica Huston, Scribner loves a great memoirist, and Mary-Louise Parker is one,” said Nan Graham, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Scribner. “Her writing is magnificent; the conceit – a memoir in letters to men – is wholly original and brilliantly executed.”
"How To Get Away With Murder" has added a record-breaking Live+3 Day DVR haul to what was already a tremendous premiere. The September 25 premiere of "How To Get Away With Murder" added 6 million viewers after three days of playback, which ABC is calling the largest-ever total viewer increase in Live+3 for a network telecast. Your previous record-holder? A January 2014 telecast of "Blacklist," which NBC likes to note has a disproportionate number of the largest-ever DVR audience bumps. The DVR boost took "How To Get Away With Murder" from 14.3 million viewers in Live+Sd to 20.3 million in Live+3. "Htgawm" also got a sizable DVR bump among adults 18-49, rising 1.9 ratings points, or 49 percent, to a 5.8 key demo rating, up from a 3.9 Live+Sd rating that was already a triumph. While it wasn't the largest volume gain in the key demo of any show from last week -- two "Big Bang Theory »

I am dying for some Walking Dead scoop. Got anything? — Matt
This season certainly doesn't waste any time getting into the action! Look for a very bloody first episode that offers some quick answers about the people of Terminus. Remember when executive producer Robert Kirkman told us that Terminus leader Gareth was not the season's major villain? That doesn't mean he isn't sufficiently creepy!
The conversation between Richard and Maggie on last week's Grey's Anatomy was so upsetting. Is he ever going to tell her that he's her father? — Karen
After her less-than-great first impression of Meredith, it's pretty clear that Maggie isn't jumping at the chance to incorporate more new relatives into her life....

If our decade-long relationship with Grey's Anatomy has taught us anything it's that hospitals are where romances are born. Continuing this trend? Fox's new drama Red Band Society, which already has not one, but two love triangles heating up in a major way in Wednesday's all-new episode, and we've got your exclusive first look at all of the romance drama. Not only will the love triangle between Emma (Ciara Bravo), Leo (Charlie Rowe) and Jordi (Nolan Sotillo) finally reach its breaking point, but Dr. McAndrew (Dave Annable), aka the hottest doctor to ever doctor on TV (Sorry, McDreamy!), will also find himself at the center of a love triangle. And we would tell you more about it, »
Like Dorothy Gale coming to the conclusion that in order to find her hearts desire she need look no further than her own backyard, ABC has apparently discovered that the secret to Thursday 8 p.m. success was in the network's Thursday lineup all along. ABC premiered "Shonda Rhimes Presents: Thursday Primetime" on Thursday (September 25) night and the results presumably exceeded all expectations, as "Scandal" hit series highs, "How To Get Away With Murder" delivered powerhouse 10 p.m. numbers and, even in its 11th season, "Grey's Anatomy" proved it still has plenty of ratings juice. And as well as the three ABC dramas performed in preliminary Fast National numbers, all three dramas rose in Final Live+Same Day ratings. So for one week, at least, ABC has found a Thursday 8 p.m. hit and seemingly successfully launched a Wednesday 9:30 success in "Black-ish." And although "Forever" doesn't look like it's a blockbuster, »

How to Get Away With Murder is the latest show in Shonda Rhimes's dramatic primetime empire, and if you watched this week's premiere, it may have felt a little familiar. We love Scandal and Grey's Anatomy - heck, even Private Practice, may it Rip - but there are more than a handful of similarities between the shows. Though Rhimes didn't create How to Get Away With Murder (as she did with the other series), she does serve as an executive producer, and her presence can definitely be felt. Let's take a look at the various Rhimes tropes that can be seen across the board. »

The ratings for Grey's Anatomy have been dropping and the show is expensive to make but it remains one of ABC's top-rated shows. How long will it make sense for the network to keep it going? How long will viewers tune in? We'll have to wait and see.
Grey's Anatomy continues to follow the lives of the medical staff at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital. This season, the large cast includes Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Sara Ramirez, Kevin McKidd, Jessica Capshaw, Sarah Drew, Jesse Williams, Camilla Luddington, Caterina Scorsone, and Jerrika Hinton.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, »
Last night, ABC released the new promo/spoiler clip (below) for their upcoming "Grey's Anatomy" episode 2 of season 11, and it appears to be quite intense and interesting as Maggie and Meredith seem to have issues with each other in the work place, and more. The episode is titled, "Puzzle With A Piece Missing.” In the new, 2nd episode, Maggie is going to keep on trying to make a great impression at the hospital ,but will keep landing in extremely bad situations. Elsewhere, Richard will keep his secret under wraps and the doctors will work with a dying woman who is being kept alive by her daughter. The episode was written by William Harper and directed by Rob Corn. Episode 2 is scheduled to air on Thursday night, October 2nd at 7pm central time on ABC. »

Wow! What a night for Shonda Thursday as it's been labeled apparently! Specifically, the season premiere of her latest contribution to ABC's primetime lineup, "How to Get Away With Murder," drew a whopping 14 million viewers total (live+Sd), even beating out the other 2 ABC Shonda Rhimes dramas, "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" last night, which attracted 9.8 million and 11.9 millions viewers respectively. A heck of a start for the new Viola Davis starrer, suggesting heavy interest in the series. Now the question is whether it has legs - how many of those 14 million viewers will return for episode 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on. Will it strengthen as the season continues, »

How to Get Away With Murder? More like how to get away with great ratings! The series premiere of How to Get Away With Murder pulled in more than 14 million viewers and nailed a 3.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Yes, 14 million viewers tuned in to see Viola Davis star in the latest Shondaland series from Peter Nowalk and executive producers Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. But here's the kicker: How to Get Away With Murder added viewers from its lead-in Scandal. The season four premiere of Scandal had about 12 million viewers and also a 3.8 rating in the fast nationals from Nielsen. Grey's Anatomy returned for its eleventh season in a new timeslot, 8 p.m., and had 9.8 million viewers and a 3.0 »
Fast National ratings for Thursday, September 25, 2014. ABC's Shonda Rhimes Thursday got off to a terrific start in its first week, edging out CBS' Thursday Night Football overall and putting up strong key demo numbers as well. The biggest success for ABC was the tremendous launch for "How To Get Away With Murder," which comfortably outdrew its "Scandal" lead-in and tied with the Kerry Washington smash in the key demo. But even "Grey's Anatomy" seemed rejuvenated in its new time period. CBS' coverage of the Thursday Night Football game between the Giants and Washington still led the night among young viewers, of course, and although ABC had a slim overall win, football tends to tick up in Finals, so there's a good chance CBS will come out on top overall as well when Live+Same Day analysis takes place. Meanwhile, "Parenthood" and "Bones" did standard numbers in their latest premieres, while »

Three straight hours of ShondaLand TV happened last night, an unprecedented event for those of us who love to gasp and tweet and watch TV. Whether you tuned in for the whole thing or dipped in here and there, we've put together a quick Gif recap of the block for you.Grey's Anatomy Stuff happened and there was lots of hugging. But not before Derek was reminded of why he wouldn't necessarily want to leave Seattle Grace Hospital: So he said he would stay ... But Meredith was like: And then hugged another man. Scandal! (Just kidding, that's the next show.) Scandal So you were wondering where in the world Olivia Pope was? There she is! Oh, hello there. This is a beautiful shot. Ships passing in the hallway. Pinky finger reaching out. A white suit and a black suit worn by a black woman and a white man. Oh, no, »

Sooooo who's drunk? We kind of are. We've been playing our Shondaland Drinking Game, and while Scandal wasn't exactly a typical Scandal episode, we were already slightly gone after that episode of Grey's Anatomy. It all started with Olivia, her amazing hair, and Jake drinking red wine and making out on a beach. And that was all it was for an entire hour. Nothing else happened. Good night. Just kidding. Along with her red wine shipment (because of course) Olivia —sorry, we meant Julia Baker—received an envelope containing an obituary for one Harrison Wright (Rip), which sent her sneakin' back to DC to plan a funeral and discover what all of her old Opa homies were up »
Here's hoping you put the kiddies to bed before watching How to Get Away With Murder tonight! In case you've forgotten what the first episode of Shonda Rhimes' other shows were like (Grey's, Private Practice and Scandal), there were some very, ahem, adult things that happened in the pilot. The show feels powerful, commanding, gripping and...grown-up. The sex scenes did not hold back tonight (for a network show!), and included an adulterous (and hot!) sex scene for leading lady Annalise Keating (Viola Davis--who should win all the awards), and a gay sex scene. Peter Nowalk, who created Murder, and who worked alongside Rhimes on Grey's Anatomy and Scandal, reveals, "We never got any »
Compelling. Shocking. Addicting. The list of adjectives we want to use to praise this gem of drama goes on and on...
Every TV fan knows that Fall is the most overwhelming season of the year. Why? One very simple reason: Too many shows and too little time. So we at ETonline are reviewing each and every one of the new fall TV shows to bring you our reviews on the good, the bad, the adorable and the just plain horrible.

Oh and did we mention that Shonda Rhimes — aka the brilliant mind behind Grey's Anatomy and Scandal — is the executive producer of the series? Yup, that's a whole »
