    Sandra Oh and Regina King sharing scenes together sounds amazing!

  7. Eh says:

    What’s your problem with a very talented actress joining that show?
    What’s your problem with Sandra Oh, in general?

  8. Alec says:

    My favorite actress on my favorite show! Yes!!!

    ABOUT TIME!!!!!!

  10. Ramona Pogue says:

    When is AMERICAN CRIME ON? Time station

  11. Joanna says:

    Never even heard of that show but now im definitely going to look for it to see her! I missed her!!

  12. jj says:

    she is such a fantastic actress. I haven’t watched American Crime but I’m tempted to start

  14. andrew hass says:

    I can’t wait to see Sandra Oh American Crime because character she’s playing will be very different than Christina Yang.

  15. Jackie says:

    Thrilled – she’s a great actress. Grey’s Anatomy tanked a few years ago, which is probably why she left. American Crime is one of the few can’t-wait-to-see shows on now. Great choice.

  16. She was great on Arliss, and about the only good thing about Gray’s Anatomy, which I stopped watching after season 1. John Ridley is great at developing characters that accentuate the actors’ strengths. Looking forward to this next season.

  17. Rob Wilson says:

    Yes, but if Sandra Oh were going to return to television, I wish she had returned to Grey’s.

  18. Lala says:

    I saw Sandra Oh…Greys…returns…ABC & I started screaming….only to realize that nah, she won’t be back on Greys!!

  19. Mel says:

    I’m a long time fan of hers (since the Arliss days), and a fan of the show, so for me it’s a win-win!

  20. Lerbert says:

    I’m looking forward to this!

  21. Charlie says:

    All we need now is Joey Pollari to return. I mean, I’m going to watch regardless but it would be great to see him come back.

  22. Dollyce Beeman says:

    Yes. Absolutely!

  23. Karen K says:

    I will watch out of curiosity, but if you want Greys to succeed you better bring back the old crew, because this one is terrible. I am a devout follower of Greys and none other has come close. But with only Alex, Meridith, Richard, and Bsiley, it is really losing my interest. I say make that past plane crash “a nightmare” that never happens during and get those others back including Derrick. Last nights show was the worst one.
