Why I Don't Watch Grey's Anatomy

Want to know why I don't watch Grey's Anatomy? Here you go:

Add in a few "Mc" references, an abundance of words that end in "jay-jay," maybe a montage of people in scrubs making out, and then set it to a soundtrack of The Fray, and you will have a perfect summary of why this show is so completely unbearable to me. If I wanted to watch ER and General Hospital at once while listening to bad music, I would put two TV sets next to each other, and tune my radio to Jack FM. Still, I have to give Grey's Anatomy credit for creating the sweeps-iest February sweeps promo to ever air: A giant ferry disaster, the swelling music, the serious voiceover intoning that "last week millions experienced unforgettable television," the drowning of a main character, "I've gotta drill holes in your friend's head," an ending "you'll never see coming", AND it's stretched out over three episodes? It's one accidental shooting (or pregnancy) away from hitting every sweeps cliché ever.
