Grey's Anatomy

You Tell Us: Are You Annoyed By Misleading TV Promos?

Listen, we understand that the editing elves working in TV promo departments have a tough job. They have to make each and every new episode of shows like Grey's Anatomy look enticing and dramatic without giving too much away, and they have to do it under 30 seconds. It's difficult.

But does that excuse the blatantly, even insultingly misleading promos they sometimes churn out? Take the promo for this week's episode of Grey's Anatomy, Season 8, Episode 7, "Put Me In, Coach," which made it look like Teddy (Kim Raver) was so mad at Cristina (Sandra Oh) about something that she fired her, telling her "you're done" over dramatic music.

Now, it would be one thing if it turned out Teddy was mad, but wasn’t going to actually end Cristina's career. That's a normal level of misleading. But that scene was actually the exact opposite of how it was portrayed in the promo: Teddy was pleased with Cristina, and the "you're done" line actually meant, "you're done doing crappy, easy surgeries — now it's on to the big leagues."

Our reaction? Come on. That's just ridiculous. What did you think?
