What's in a name?

Yes, I realize all too well the demographic audience that watches ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" never watched or probably even heard of CBS's "Diagnosis Murder", which originally aired over a decade ago. But what brilliant mind decided to name the new hunky surgeon on "Grey's Anatomy" Mark Sloan?

The writers didn't do their homework, because it was Dick Van Dyke's character's name on "Diagnosis". Plus they're both physicians. One could have checked this in in about 30 seconds.
