'Glee,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' '90210,' 'Bones,' 'NCIS': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

We’re only one week into season/series premieres and I want to share some embarrassing figures:

4: Number of times I cried during Parenthood‘s premiere.
3: Number of dinners eaten straight out of a container/box because I was too lazy/tired to cook.
1: Times I teared up during Glee (Lea Michele’s phone call KILLED me.)
4: Times I shouted at the TV during Sons of Anarchy‘s premiere.
~22: Number of times I laughed out loud during the New Normal. (I’m guessing it was once per minute)

My point? The fall TV season is already starting off AMAZING, and it’s only going to go up from here. Can’t wait? Not to worry; I have some nice scoop to hold you over until then. Enjoy!

(And don’t forget to keep in touch! E -mail questions to spoilerroom@ew.com or on Twitter @EWSandraG. Also, if you’re so inclined, share some numbers of your own below. Purely for my entertainment, of course.)

‘GLEE': FIVE MINI-SCOOPS

From what I can tell, Glee fans seem a little split on the new season. (Also, the Grand Canyon is a kinda big and cookies are sorta delicious.) So, in an effort to please as many people as possible, I’ve included a little scoop for everyone below. For more, check out this Glee post from earlier this week. Enjoy (and play nice, please)!

+ WHERE’S MS. PILLSBURY!? Around. And we’ll see her quite soon, Matthew Morrison promises. In fact, he says, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Will and Emma’s home life than you might think based on the first episode. “We have never seen them actually living together, and now they’re living together this season, cohabitating under one roof,” he says. “It should be interesting. It’s not as easy as I think he thought it was going to be!”

+ SKIN ALERT: Chord Overstreet claims he has a shirtless scene in episode 3. You’re welcome.

+ MORE BIEBER ON THE WAY? It’s no secret that I fell deeply in love with Overstreet’s version of “Baby.” And he says there’s a good chance there’s more Bieber in the works! “I’m a big fan of ‘As Long As You Love Me’ right now. [I] may be doing a couple of mash-ups of some different stuff — and maybe some acoustic stuff,” he says.

+ WHEN THE TWO PUCKERMANS MEET…expect fireworks. “It’s definitely kind of shocking for them both initially,” says Jacob Artist, who says we’ll soon see Puck come face-to-face with his half-brother. “Puck has never met [my character], and I’ve never met Puck. Obviously, the confrontation — there’s a lot of tension going on…it’s definitely a touchy moment for the both of them. [The outcome] definitely affects them.”

+ LOVE TRIANGLE NO. 100000000 Glee loves love triangles. I love a good one, too. And it sounds like Puck Jr. could be involved in one of the many we’ll see this season. “Jake is definitely going to have some romantic drama going on. He’s interested in the new ladies,” Artist says. “I think [he's looking] for somebody that can balance him out. He can be a little crass — so I think [he wants] somebody that can balance him [out].” Any guesses, gang?

‘90210’: 100th EPISODE SCOOP!
90210 will hit a big milestone this year — 100 episodes! That’s no small feat in TV land, and what better way to mark the occasion than with Homecoming Weekend! Showrunners Patti Carr and Lara Olsen recently gushed to me about this super-packed episode when we hopped on the phone ahead of the show’s upcoming premiere on Oct. 8.

“We get to go back and re-live a few memories.” Carr said. “And we also have things getting bigger and more out of hand. We got to the Playboy mansion, we have musical performers, and some very revealing moments for our cast.” Also expect some “fan favorites” to pop up.

But, adds Carr: “It’s not just the clip show where they all remember and come out of it unaffected. They’re all profoundly affected by what happens.”

Another treat? Denise Richards, who, as EW previously reported, will appear as an alum-turned-socialite. “There’s so much happening in the 100th episode, I don’t know how we’re going to fit it all in one episode,” says Olsen. Carr jokes: “Maybe it will be a two-part 100th episode — 99.5/100.”

‘GREY’S ANATOMY': QUICK HITS FROM KEVIN MCKIDD
True story: I adore Kevin McKidd. Not only is he a hard-working guy — currently, he’s editing the fourth episode of the season, which he directed — but he’s a massively good teaser. And while I’m going to wait to share our full convo with you, here are some really tasty bits from our chat. (And, yes, this is a totally mean way for me to do this. But, you have to admit, it’s also a little fun — for me):

SG: Is the cheating issue from last season still hanging over Owen and Cristina this season?
KM: I think we’ve kind of blown past that in a way because the cataclysmic events of what happened, especially everything with Cristina. It’s going to come back and affect Owen as well — even though he wasn’t on the plane. In retrospect, it’s going to come back and really affect him in a big way too and in a way that we don’t expect.

SG: We know that not all of the doctors are going to be working at Seattle Grace in the first episode (which is a flashforward). Obviously you can’t say who, but is it safe to assume that Owen and Christina are still in the same place working on these issues together?
KM: That is not safe to assume…[truncated]

SG: Let’s talk about the flashbacks.
KM: I can’t really say too much because that would be giving stuff away. Flashbacks are featured heavily in episode two and may appear in other ones.

SG: Did any of the characters reactions to the crash surprise you? 
KM:…the writers have kind of turned everything on its head and under duress and under stress people do act in a way out of character…

Look for my full chat with McKidd, where he talks about directing and the new season, on Sept. 27, the day of the big season premiere!

'Grey's Anatomy' season 8 deleted scene: 'Use your words, Karev!' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

One of the great joys of Grey’s Anatomy‘s last season was watching the relationship between Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) develop further, as the doctors worked together on the smallest patients inside Seattle Grace Mercy West’s neo-natal unit. The special kinship between the pair is on display in the upcoming, Sept. 4 DVD release of Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Eighth Season in a fun little deleted scene that EW has here for you exclusively.

The never-before-seen scene comes from the January episode “Suddenly” and finds Karev and Robbins performing surgery on one of the hospital’s newborns. “Huh,” Karev says unceremoniously, in the middle of operating. And that’s what Robbins takes issue with: “‘Huh’? You don’t ‘Huh’? when you have an open newborn baby on the table,” the motherly/teacherly doctors scolds Karev. “You know what? I’m taking over.” Karev continues his mumbling, and that’s where the funny comes in between this pair: “Hey! Use your words, Karev!” Robbins implores him. “Or you’re not making another cut.”

Watch the whole scene here:

'Grimm,' 'White Collar,' 'Person of Interest,' 'Supernatural,' 'Grey's Anatomy': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

True story: I’m so excited for fall TV that I’ve been having dreams about watching season premieres. Seriously. My entire dream is me sitting on the couch, watching TV. Part of me thinks that maybe I’m clairvoyant and all the secrets of the fall season are playing out on Dream Sandra’s TV. The more likely possibility is that I need a real life. (My birthday was last week, and I’m now starting to think I wasted that wish. Damn.)

Regardless, as TV continues to invade my dreams, I encourage you to engage with it in reality by sending me your questions! Email spoilerroom@ew.com or ask via Twitter @EWSandraG. Belated birthday wishes also accepted. (Just don’t ask for age specifics. I’ll never tell.)

Loretta Devine talks 'Grey's Anatomy,' her Emmy nod, the 'Waiting to Exhale' sequel, and more

Grey’s Anatomy star Loretta Devine has a lot to celebrate: She won an Emmy for her meaty role as the Alzheimer’s-riddled Adele on the ABC soap last year, and she’s nominated again this year. It’s not a stretch to think she might take home a second trophy, but the field — guest actress in a drama series — is notoriously deep with talent and this year that’s no different: Devine is up against The Good Wife‘s Martha Plimpton, Harry’s Law‘s Jean Smart, Mad Men‘s Julia Ormond, Shameless‘ Joan Cusack, and Smash‘s Uma Thurman.

But win or not, Devine has lots more to smile about: Besides her Emmy-winning role on Grey’s, she’s also got a spot as a sassy madame on Lifetime’s successful movie spin-off series The Client List, and she voices a role in Disney Junior’s cute, animated show Doc McStuffins, which just released a DVD. Between it all, Devine found a few minutes to chat with EW about her Emmy nomination, her future on Grey’s, what she’d like to see happen to her character Adele, what’s going on with the Waiting to Exhale sequel, and much more.

'Grey's Anatomy' season 9 promo: What happened 'out there'?

Grey’s Anatomy always produces chill-inducing promos, and here’s the latest one for season 9.

There’s not much new footage here, but Dr. Webber helps build suspense with his ominous voiceover. “If you think you’re prepared for what’s about to happen, you’re not,” he says. Well, I never said I was, Webber. In fact, I know I’ll be a wreck.

We already know the first episode will jump a few months ahead in time and show “the world” the outcome of the crash. With Eric Dane bowing out of the series, we can guess his time on this planet is limited. But any other predictions? Watch the promo below: READ FULL STORY

'Doctor Who': 'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes talks about her 'psychotic' love for the Time Lord

1218-DRWHO-EWCOVER.jpg

How much does Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice creator Shonda Rhimes love the British sci-fi show Doctor Who? “I feel the two highlights of my past five years are I got to meet (former Who executive producer) Russell Davies and I got to meet the star of (Who spin-off show) Torchwood, John Barrowman, who was in one of our pilots,” reveals the prolific TV showrunner. Indeed, an episode from the most recent season of Grey’s Anatomy featured a Who fan who lost his ear at a fan convention while rushing to get a model TARDIS signed by Davies.

Rhimes talked about her love for the show in last week’s Entertainment Weekly Doctor Who cover story (see above). But she had much, much more to say about the 49-year-old TV institution — whose new season debuts on BBC America later this summer — as you can read below.

'Grey's Anatomy': Did Patrick Dempsey tweet a huge spoiler?!

We know Eric Dane is on his way out of Grey’s Anatomy, but could McSteamy be joining Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) in that big hospital in the sky? READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' boss Shonda Rhimes explains Eric Dane's exit, teases unique season opener

Eric Dane’s recently announced exit from Grey’s Anatomy may have caught fans by surprise, but creator Shonda Rhimes wasn’t quite as blindsided.

“It was a thing that Eric had been thinking about for a while, but it felt like the right time to him” she tells EW. “I love Eric, and Eric and I have been working together for a very long time, so it was bittersweet. I’m happy he’s going to go on and do other things, but I’m really sad to not be able to work with him every day.”

Creatively, the timing was also right. After last season’s plane crash, which claimed the life of Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh), many fates — including that of Dane’s character Mark Sloane — were left up in the air. And though Dane is slated to return for two episodes in the upcoming ninth season, Rhimes says his imminent appearance should not necessarily be considered a nod to his fate on the show, especially in light of the unique format of the season’s first episodes.

“When we start the season, we are ahead enough in time where we see the outcome of lots of things. And in the second episode of the season, there’s rewind — we go backwards — to where they’re still in the forest,” she shares. “So you see what happened and in the next episode, you see how we get there. That was a really great experiment for us, and we think it turned out really really well.” This approach, she says, allowed them to tackle the crash aftermath in a way that felt different from what fans saw after the equally traumatizing hospital shooting a few seasons ago.

'Grey's Anatomy': Eric Dane leaving show

McSteamy is checking out of Seattle Grace.

EW confirms a report that Eric Dane, who has played plastic surgeon Mark Sloan on the show since its second season, will leave Grey’s Anatomy during the upcoming ninth season. He will return for a number of episodes to close out his character’s arc.

“After much consideration and conversations, he and I have decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end,” creator Shonda Rhimes told TVLine. “We’re a big family here at Grey‘s with a long history together and Eric will always remain an important part of our family.”

“I am extremely  grateful to everyone at Grey’s, ABC and Shondaland for the experience and memories I have had over the course of this run,” Dane said, in a statement. “It has been wonderful to work alongside and learn from a creative force, such as Shonda Rhimes.”

At the end of the eighth season, Dane’s character was seen in duress after the big plane crash that claimed the life of Lexi (Chyler Leigh) and left him seriously injured. The finale also saw the departure of Kim Raver’s Teddy.

I’m baaaaaack!

Yes, my two-week vacation to the motherland (Texas) was just the refresher I was hoping for before getting into the thick of all the exciting things happening here at EW this summer — like set visits, Comic-Con, general tomfoolery. My highlights? Reigning supreme in my very first Penny Can tournament, cuddling puppies, and getting my mother addicted to The Vampire Diaries. (“Awww! He met her first!” — mom, re: the finale). But now it’s back to work! So enjoy the return of Spoiler Room.

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Scandal' ratings rise for finales

scandal

Three Thursday night dramas were greeted with larger audiences for their final episodes of the season, but one NBC comedy tied its all-time low.

ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy delivered 11.1 million viewers and a 3.9 rating, up 11 percent from last week and marking its best rating in three months. Check out EW.com’s interview with Grey’s showrunner Shonda Rhimes about last night’s two shocking exits here.

Bigger news: Rhimes’ Scandal (7.5 million, 2.4) was up too, and not just a little. The political soap was up 26 percent, which is expected to mark a series high for the show (even after its rating is adjusted later today to account for some Grey’s overrun). Scandal started its brief midseason run modestly but, as we’ve noted before, seemed like it had the potential to grow.   READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' season finale: Boss explains two shocking exits

Last night’s season finale of Grey’s Anatomy saw the end to one of the show’s major players as a result of the devastating plane crash, but that isn’t the only face that will be missing when the doctor drama returns next season.

Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes confirmed via Twitter that Kim Raver (pictured, left) — in addition to Lexie (Chyler Leigh, not pictured) — would not be returning next season. “This finale was incredibly hard to write. I did not enjoy it. It made me sick and it made me sad. We end the season not knowing ANYTHING about the future. Except for two things. We know we are definitely saying goodbye to two of my favorite people: Chyler Leigh (Lexie) and Kim Raver (Teddy),” she wrote. READ FULL STORY
