Our GREY ANATOMY's slot is 10 to 11 pm too, so I'm assuming it's beamed at the same time over South Asia. I find the serial rather depressing, the plots as well as the lead characters and the disjointed lives they lead. Give me EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND any day. We are watching reruns of the reruns of...
I hope things are calmer for you now. Oh I need a pedicure soon!ReplyDelete
Happy Reading and stay rested.
