Grey's Anatomy debuted in March 2005 as a mid-season replacement. The show was interesting upon it's arrival and the a big show, reaching its peak in the third season with 28.0 million viewers. The tallies for 2015 are less than that, 8.0 million viewers, that's no bueno!
Here's a few reasons why this show is essentially over though its decline still provides odd entertainment in it's trying hours.
The actress who portrays Meredith Grey,
This happened in the 14th season. Derek Shepherd, Meredith Grey's husband and father of their 3 children met his demise in a brutal and disgusting manner. Dempsey had been having problems on the set and as well know Shonda Rimes doesn't do problems so she had a solution. And your looking at it. This episode had Shepherd helping folks in a road accident, being a TV hero and after it was all over, there was one more tragedy for Meredith and the viewers.
Part 2- Derek's death was par for the course. No one should have been surprised. What was surprising is how Grey's Anatomy chickened out of showing the immediate effects of Derek's accident and flashed up a few months. The show still isn't the same without the character--and the anchor of having Derek and Meredith together.
Dr.Richard Is Electrocuted
Never you mind about Season 8 downer ending with Lexi and Eric tragedy via the aeroplane. This Season 9 cliffhanger had our Dr. Richard almost roasted into a dumb dumb. Good lord, you know this show was really reaching when this happened. I think there was a great flood at Seattle Grace when Dr. Richard was loafer deep in water and was around "electwicity" and we know know how this works? Not good. The viewers saw Dr. Richard smoking like a cheap cigar and yet he survived without complications. Not one?
This was so silly. During the same accident Grey's Anatomy claimed the one intern who wasn't loathsome. That Shonda Rimes is a jokester!
Problems signed were on the horizon when Torres was paired with fading character George O' Malley (T.R. Knight) and ever since then they've put her plots that really made little or no sense. The pairing of Torres and Arizona was particularly boring. After the Great Plane Accident, Torres made the call to saw off Arizona's leg, something that always brings couples together.
During season 12 we see Torres fall in love with another half-baked character, Penny--the most's most dreary person ever. What fun! According to reports, Ramirez is planning to leave Grey's Anatomy. I almost hope so.
Whoever This Is I Can't Stand Her
I know who she is, that's Amelia Shepherd, you know Derek's little sister. Amelia's character spent three gruesome seasons on another Shonda Rimes show, Private Practice. Since Season 11, Amelia has been bringing her toxic energy into another program, Grey's Anatomy. Amelia's luck has seemed to be worse than Meredith's with her drug and sex issues, her overall crabbiness and the fact that for all of the years she's been on televisions, the character doesn't seem a whit more defined. All of that in a show that's coasting on fumes.
