    i also want to know what's going on. this break is really long, private practice has been going on. and i can't find any info on the net about this hiatus. all i keep getting is katherine heigl's hiatus. it'll be good to know when the show will be aired??

    I would imagine it's simply the winter holidays break that all of the other shows are preparing to take. Greys started its season two weeks earlier than Private Practice this year, so my guess is they set it up this way to give Private Practice a spot for its 2-hour winter finale.

    You could see that this break was coming in the 11/19 episode-- they went all the way through New Years. It'll be back in Jan/Feb I'm sure.

    That is ridiculous!! There is no need to take a 2 month break in the middle of the season, especially since no other shows were breaking like that. God, I hope this isn't an indication of how well the show is doing.

    I agree, and I thought LOST and Californication were taking liberties with their short episode count!

    Not true...There are actually several shows that are taking even longer breaks: Smallville, Glee, 90210 & probably many others. Don't know whay they do this, but every year around this time several shows go on hiatus.

    Other than "Glee", the other shows are struggling.

    Quite a few of the shows won't come back until closer to sweeps; the networks like to come back from the break on fire to try and generate ratings, so look for a lot of show's to come back late in January.

    Grey's started the season a little early and took a longer winter hiatus to accommodate Ellen Pompeo's maternity leave.

    But, my old faithful, NCIS is back this week. Boo-Yah.

    Sort of. hose shows aren't getting the proper push.
