The Museum of Television & Radio’s annual William S. Paley Television Festival – a love fest between the creators and stars of the latest and greatest in TV land and their adoring public – kicks off on Feb. 28 with the cast and crew of Grey's Anatomy.

Audience members get treated to clips/episodes of their favorite TV shows, hear insight on production and even get to ask the questions everyone must know. (When are Meredith and McDreamy getting back together? Are Izzy and Alex a couple?)

The Paley Fest has a pretty good lineup this year. Besides Grey’s Anatomy, the lineup includes Entourage, My Name is Earl, House, Battlestar Galactica (the Edward James Olmos version, not Lorne Greene’s cast), and Everybody Hates Chris (and yes, Chris Rock is scheduled to appear). And LAist can’t forget to mention, especially for their fans in WeHo, that the fest is bringing together a few of The Golden Girls. Snap.
