Grey’s Anatomy stands as a testament to the power of an old-fashioned, long-running network series
While the current TV trend emphasizes shorter seasons and quality over quantity, Grey's is that rare throwback to past TV series that were able to run for years while maintaining interest among fans. As Caroline Siede explains, "long-running show like Grey’s Anatomy measures its successes and failures in eras, not episodes or even seasons. And while Grey’s Anatomy has had some real low points over the years (yes, this is a medical series where someone had sex with a ghost that turned out to be a manifestation of her brain tumor), it’s had plenty of peaks to counter those valleys. The show’s most recent creative renaissance came thanks to its biggest ever creative shakeup—the decision to kill off Patrick Dempsey’s Dr. Derek 'McDreamy' Shepherd in the 11th season episode 'How To Save A Life.' In examining what Meredith’s life looks like in a post-Derek world, Grey’s Anatomy got a creative kick start (not to mention a ratings boost). And since then it’s been refreshingly willing to mine its own past for emotional resonance, most successfully in seasons 12 and 14."

Have we reached "Peak MD"? Broadcast TV could have as many as six medical dramas next season
NBC's Ryan Eggold-led drama New Amsterdam joins a crowded network medical drama field consisting of The Resident, Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor, Chicago Med and -- should it be renewed -- Code Black. "So why did the network feel the need to order up 10 cc’s of another medical drama STAT?" says Jennifer Maas of the New Amsterdam pickup. "Well, that’s a good question, as the Nielsen numbers for this genre are all over the place, meaning it could either become a hit, provide the network with steady mid-range ratings, or tread water each week."

Kevin McKidd expects his Grey's Anatomy character to struggle without co-star Sarah Drew
“You know, he’s had all these tumultuous relationship problems and stuff, partly probably because he’s only had to do half the work because April Kepner’s been there helping him run the ER,” says McKidd. “Now, Owen is going to have to run the ER pretty much full time. So hopefully he’s gonna have less personal life drama, because he’s going to be so busy at work.”
