Post-Super Bowl Ratings Surge Continues

by at . Comments

It looks like Seattle Grace Hospital is becoming quite the popular Sunday night destination these days... even more so than Wisteria Lane.

Grey's Anatomy has benefitted greatly in ratings from the over-the-top ladies of Desperate Housewives who precede it. But with 24.3 million viewers checking out Sunday night's episode, Meredith, Derek and company trumped their lead-in for the second consecutive week. "Housewives," which became a Sunday night staple with its breakout first season, did draw a solid 23.4 million viewers Sunday.

Through the end of January, Grey's Anatomy averaged about 17.9 million viewers per week, but the show's audience has jumped more than 35 percent since due to the exposure it received in the coveted post-Super Bowl slot. The two-part cliffhanger episode revolving around an unexploded bomb in the operating room -- somewhat uncharacteristic of the show -- may have helped the show expand its audience as well.

On the season, Grey's Anatomy ranks ninth in ratings among all Prime Time programs. No doubt that it some "Desperate" exposure has helped it rise, but the SGH gang is starting to hold up its end of the bargain!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
