Grey's Anatomy Renewed for Season 15!!

It's time to lay some hearty congratulations at the feet of Grey's Anatomy.

They can now lay claim to being ABC's longest running drama series!!

Let the celebration begin, Grey's fans. I have no doubt all of you had a lot to do with this wonderful news.

Until this renewal, Ozzy and Harriet was the longest-running series on ABC, but hardly the longest running series on television.

While Grey's will now be tied with ER for the longest-running medical drama, Gunsmoke, Law & Order and its Svu spinoff, NCIS, CSI, and Bonanza have all run longer across the dial than Grey's over the years and networks.

Still, that's little reason to quibble this amazing news for Grey's fans!

The cast has changed vastly over the seasons, but there are still characters remaining from Grey's Anatomy Season 1, including the titular character

'Grey's Anatomy' Renewed for Season 15 at ABC

It's official: Grey's Anatomy will return for the 2018-19 broadcast season.

ABC announced the formal renewal for the medical drama late Friday at the wrap party for the Shonda Rhimes drama. With the season 15 renewal, Grey's Anatomy becomes ABC's longest-running primetime drama ever, passing The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (which ran for 15 seasons and 435 episodes). Only seven dramas in the history of television — Gunsmoke, Law & Order and its Svu spinoff, NCIS, CSI, ER and Bonanza — have had more seasons than Grey's. (And Grey's will now be tied with ER as TV's longest-running medical drama.)

10 Things About Back to the Future 3 You Never Knew

10 Things About Back to the Future 3 You Never Knew
Michael J. Fox suggested it would be fun to visit the Old West and the final installment in the Back to the Future trilogy was born. It's Back to the Future Part III, the movie that gave us a "Mad Dog" and a happy ending for Dr. Emmet Brown. Today, we look at 10 things you missed in Back to the Future Part III.

The Paradox script.

Despite the cliffhanger ending, there were originally no real plans for a Back to the Future sequel. However, once the studio became dead set on making one, director Robert Zemeckis and co-creator Bob Gale agreed to come back to make it. Conceived as a single sequel, a script called Paradox contained elements that were eventually split into II and III. Paradox remained the working title for the sequel shoots and parts of that script were used in the novelizations of the two movies.

Marty's bail.

Charles Manson Dies at 83

Charles Manson Dies at 83
Charles Manson, the notorious leader of the Manson Family cult that murdered actress Sharon Tate and six others in 1969, died Sunday in a Bakersfield, Calif., hospital. He was 83.

The California Department of Corrections released a statement reading, “Inmate Charles Manson, 83, died of natural causes at 8:13 p.m. on Sunday, November 19, 2017, at a Kern County hospital.”

Manson returned to the hospital in mid-November after being hospitalized in January. He was transferred out of Corcoran State Prison, where he had been serving nine life sentences. He had been denied parole 12 times.

The shocking murders brought the carefree hippie era of the late 1960s to a dark end, with Manson and his followers becoming infamous cultural figures. Though he didn’t commit the Tate and Labianca murders himself, the Corrections Department said “On December 13, 1971, Manson received a first-degree murder conviction from Los Angeles County for the July 25, 1969, death of Gary Hinman and another first-degree murder conviction for the August

Dashes, commas, and judgmental twitchers | Brief letters

Harry Dean Stanton | Boris Johnson | Dancing about architecture | Fatberg | Ornithology of meetings | Ambridge antidote

Your obituary for Harry Dean Stanton (18 September) mispunctuates the title of the TV series Have Gun – Will Travel by substituting a comma for the dash. This had a curious effect on the list of TV horse operas Stanton acted in: “Laramie, The Gun, Have Gun, Will Travel, Bonanza and Rawhide.” Even the Oxford comma, which coincidentally played a part in Sunday’s episode of Strike, can’t come to our rescue with that one, though it could have helped with Bonanza and Rawhide.

Boris Johnson must know that birds do not sing in the nest (Report, 20 September). It is a place of secrecy and security. It is the immature that call out, eager to be fed. This is especially true if an over-sized cuckoo is among them, ensuring that they are ejected and crash to the ground below.

Duel in the Sun

David O. Selznick’s absurdly over-cooked western epic is a great picture, even if much of it induces a kind of hypnotic, mouth-hanging-open disbelief. Is this monument to the sex appeal of Jennifer Jones, Kitsch in terrible taste, or have Selznick and his army of Hollywood talents found a new level of hyped melodramatic harmony? It certainly has the star-power, beginning with Gregory Peck as a cowboy rapist who learned his bedside manners from Popeye’s Bluto. It’s all hugely enjoyable.

Jason Bateman Recalls His Roots as a Child Actor

He’s also starring in (and directing four episodes of) “Ozark,” the moody, intense Netflix thriller that he also exec produces.

Bateman has been acting since childhood. His first Variety mention was on Nov. 16, 1979, when he signed with the Dorothy Day Otis/Jack Rose Agency at age 10.
