Kate Walsh: "Private Practice" Gets Head Start
Actress Kate Walsh revealed during her attendance of the NAACP Image Awards on Thursday, her hit medical drama "Private Practice" is going back to production in April.
ABC has however decided not to air any new episodes of "Private Practice" before it relaunches the show, along with the rest of the Wednesday night line-up ("Pushing Daisies" and "Dirty Sexy Money") next fall.
The studio would therefore get a head start on the new season, allowing them to stockpile episodes in case there is an actors' strike.
Only 9 episodes aired last year, although the show had been picked up for a full season of 22 episodes.
"Private Practice" is ABC's top rated freshman drama averaging 10.76 million viewers this season. Given "Terminator's" (FOX) recent decline in the ratings, the show can also be considered this season's top new drama overall.
