Grey's Anatomy May Move to Thursday; Three-Hour Season Finale Planned For May

by at . Comments

ABC is considering shifting Grey's Anatomy from Sunday nights to Mondays or Thursdays after its recent surge in popularity, according to the Chicago Tribune. The big discussion at the network's annual development meeting in Los Angeles last week, the big discussion was whether Grey's Anatomy will be moved, prime time entertainment chief Steve McPherson said.

Meredith on Thursday? for the show have jumped since the cliffhanger episode on February 5, which aired right after the Super Bowl and drew 37 million viewers. The series is one of the top scripted shows among young adults and has been ABC's breakout hit for the season.

"The show has a broad appeal and advertisers would feel safe to be affiliated with that type of program. It's not violent or offensive," said Karen McCallum, an ad buyer at Esparza Advertising in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Moving Grey's to the biggest TV weeknight would give ABC the chance to better promote movies or events. It would be a bold move to break up the Grey's Anatomy-Desperate Housewives 1-2 punch, but ABC has historically fared so poorly on Thursdays, it might just try. Needless to say, we'll follow Meredith and friends wherever they go.

Meanwhile, TV Guide reports that during ABC's May sweeps push, Grey's Anatomy will end its sophomore season with a two-part, three-hour event. The finale will begin Sunday, May 14 and conclude the next night, Monday, May 15. If it's half as riveting as the post-Super Bowl "Code Black" drama, there's no telling how high the ratings might go!
