While a few stars (like Katherine Langford) are just getting into the business, many of the members of the ensemble cast have been in Hollywood for years, and they've even starred in projects together before! I started digging into their past roles, and found 13 - that wasn't planned, I swear - interesting connections. Note: I'm not including the fact that they've almost all been on some iteration of Law & Order, because you could throw a pebble out the window and hit someone who's been on Law & Order. Image Source: ABC Grey's Anatomy: Kate Walsh, Dylan Minnette, Mark Pellegrino, Wilson Cruz, and Ajiona Alexus were all on Grey's Anatomy. Walsh was a recurring character, while the others turned up as guest stars. Minnette memorably played a boy with no ears. Private Practice: Walsh's character,

Dr. Ken: Season One Ratings

Many Friday night sitcoms have come and gone on ABC in the past few years -- shows like Cristela, The Neighbors, and Malibu Country. Will Dr. Ken survive to see a second season or, will it be cancelled too? Stay tuned.

Based on the experiences of creator and star Ken Jeong, Dr. Ken follows the life of a brilliant but unorthodox physician who occasionally leaves his bedside manner at home. The cast also includes Suzy Nakamura, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Dave Foley, Kate Simses, Jonathan Slavin, Albert Tsai, and Krista Marie Yu.

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 -- typically around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.Read More…

ABC renews 'Last Man Standing' for Season 5

ABC renews 'Last Man Standing' for Season 5
It's become a little game that ABC plays each spring. In a big burst, the network renews nearly all of its shows and then leaves "Last Man Standing" to sweat it out for a renewal a day or two later. On one hand, it might be considered mean. On the other hand, by doing it this way, "Last Man Standing" gets a separate renewal story all to itself each year. As it ever was, so it is again: Two days after ABC issued every other one of its renewals, "Last Man Standing" has been picked up for a fifth season. In its fourth season, and its third season on Friday nights, "Last Man Standing" averaged 6.8 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49. That's not bad for a comedy with no lead-in on a vicious night, as "Last Man Standing" generally beat CBS' "The Amazing Race" for their shared half-hour.
