The newest episode of Grey's Anatomy, "Name of the Game," helped ABC to a dominating Sunday ratings victory last weekend. Once again, the show lconvincingly won its time slot in both total viewers and the coveted 18-49 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research.
With an estimated 22.4 million viewers and a 9.9 rating/23 share, Grey's Anatomy edged out its own lead-in, Desperate Housewives (22.1 million, 9.0/21), as the top show of the entire evening. Unfortunately for ABC, along with the show's legions of fans, there won't be a new episode until... hope you're sitting down... April 30.
Until then, we will have to make do with re-runs. The network will air "Something to Talk About" this Sunday. The episode is most memorable for the male patient who insists he is pregnant, and for a sheltered young girl who helps Alex realize, and express, his true feelings for Isobel. While we hate repeats on principle, we can make an exception for G.A. It's just too good!
