Izzie Necrophilia: It's Complicated

Denny the Ghost (and lover to Katherine Heigl's Izzie) on "Grey's Anatomy" isn't actually a ghost, ABC programming chief Steve McPherson revealed to a giddy press corps at I Think I'll Just Take Some of These Dinner Roles to Feed My Hungry Children Winter TV Press Tour 2009.

Is there really anyone who didn't know this already?

"In terms of the ghost stuff, it's not a ghost, which you will learn," McPherson told the press.

"When you get to the end of the season and you see everything [creator and executive producer Shonda Rimes] had in mind, it might not be your cup of tea, but I think you'll be surprised at how insightful and smart that storyline itself is in term of the dynamics it's creating for the characters involved and where we end up with those characters."

McPherson noted viewers will be the judge of how good or bad the whole Izzie necrophilia thing has been for the show. "That's the good and the bad about this business...Shows ebb and flow, and when you talk about long-term serialized dramas, you're going to have some stuff people don't respond to."

How much do the producers of GA regret killing off Denny now? At first I was excited at his return because he was such a good character. But now it's just creepy. I'm sure someone at ABC considered pulling a Bobby Ewing and have him in the shower one morning.
