Grey's Anatomy
The wildly successful medical drama "Grey's Anatomy" hit television screens on March 27, 2005. The series revolves around Dr. Meredith Grey, played by actress Ellen Pompeo, who began the show as a surgical intern at Seattle Grace Hospital in Washington state. The show's popularity was due in part to the steamy relationship triangles established between the staff members of Seattle Grace and the McNaming of the male characters. (Frank Ockenfels/ ABC)
