So Grey’s Anatomy has given Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith) her walking papers… Heidi & Spencer may cameo on an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother… And Pushing Daisies could possibly get canceled. A lot of controversy in the TV world today, a myriad of topics that many of us have strong opinions on.
Late last month, several of you voiced your concern regarding Grey’s swelling cast and suggested the ousting of Hahn as a solution. But now that we’re hearing Melissa George‘s incoming character will no longer be bisexual (as originally planned), the implications surrounding Brooke Smith’s firing become much more complicated…
And I know how the majority of you feel about Heidi and Spencer possibly showing up on How I Met Your Mother. And I can’t say you don’t have a point. Why are these two dimwits and their estranged co-star Lauren Conrad so famous off a vapid reality show like The Hills when the uber-talented cast and writers of a series as brilliant as Pushing Daisies might be out of work next week?
I love the passion with which we all care about these stories, and today — in honor of election day — I ask you to weigh in on the issue that’s irking you the most. Let’s get a discussion going in the comments section… But not before you make the effort to go out and cast your vote in today’s historic presidential election. For all things are related, you see, and it’s important to give yourself a voice in the civic arena, as well as the TV world, right?
If you’re over 18 and a U.S. citizen who is registered, take some time to google your local ballot right now, read up on the props, figure out how you want to vote, and go get it done, son (and then come back so we can talk TV again). This is a seriously important day, and having participated, you will be a part of history.
