Side Notes: Is Shonda Rhimes to ABC what Seth MacFarlane is to Fox? How many shows does that woman need on their network? And as a native of Detroit, why is it that everytime a series comes out set in the city it has to do with crime? You can’t get more obvious that a show called “Detroit 1-8-7.” Plus Michael Imperioli’s the star and his characters are always followed by death.
