    Miss Crichlow moves on pretty quickly.

      Just further proof that A to Z really is canceled, despite Rashida Jones’ delusion claims to the contrary.

      She has one of the best agents in the biz. Her agents smashes every door open for her quickly. Spencer has no merit , she is the product of nepotism and very bland factory made blond Chica.she’ll be forgotten soon.

  2. I can’t wait to see what kind of role that Spencer Grammer will be playing in the new NBC comedy series . Good luck.

  3. Dean says:

    Loved Spencer Grammer on Greek. Which is more than I can say for that awful ironside remake. Not sure about her being in an NBC comedy though given the networks recent luck with them.

  4. Joey Padron says:

    Glad Spencer got a new show! Can’t wait to see her in Chicago PD.
