Ratings: Grey's Up vs. Year Ago as ABC's Entire 'TGIT' Slate Rises

Grey's Anatomy Ratings

ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday drew 8.5 million total viewers and a 2.5 rating (per finals), rising 6 percent three tenths week-to-week, leading all of “TGIT” in the demo and up from its year-ago fall finale (8.3 mil/2.4).

In fact, Grey’s nearly matched its numbers from two years ago (8.6 mil/2.6). In today‘s TV climate? That’s kinda crazy.

Scandal (8.1 mil/2.4) and How to Get Away With Murder (7.2 mil/2.3) both grew in audience while gaining two and four tenths, respectively.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

FOX | Bones (5.3 mil/1.0) and Sleepy Hollow‘s fall finale (2.8 mil/0.8) each ticked down.

NBC | The Heroes Reborn (3.7 mil/1.1) and Blacklist (6.9 mil/1.5) fall finales were steady, while The Player‘s season finale (3.4 mil/0.8) inched up a tenth, hitting a 4-week high.

THE CW | Vampire Diaries (1.1 mil/0.5) dipped a tenth. The Originals (800K/0.4) dropped some eyeballs while steady in the demo.

CBS | Big Bang (15.2 mil/3.8), 2BG (6.4 mil/1.7) and Elementary (5.6 mil/0.9) each added a tenth, Mom (7.5 mil/1.7) rose two tenths and Life in Pieces (8.4 mil/1.80) was steady.
