Eric Dane has appeared in more 140 episodes from “Grey’s Anatomy” as Dr. Mark “Mc Steamy” Sloan, most of them from 2006 to 2012, although he did make a guest appearance in the Season 17 episode “Breathe” in 2021. In a 2022 interview with in addition for his movie “Redeeming Love,” Dane admitted he had never seen a single episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.” “Well, I was there when it happened,” Dane explained. “It’s very well done and very well written. That’s probably why people still watch it.” The actor didn’t elaborate on why he’d rather not watch one of his biggest roles.
Dane is one of the few people not to watch ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ as a 2022 article in Deadline reported that the show’s 400th episode, which was also the Season 18 finale, continued to win the ratings battle with the biggest viewership and highest demo rating. Fans remain concerned about ‘Grey’s’ future, however, as Ellen Pompeo said. Initiated in 2021 that she “tried to concentrate on convincing everyone that [the show] should end.” Pompeo has an uphill battle in this regard, as the show’s continued success makes it unlikely that the network will be willing to end the long-running medical drama.
