Grey's Anatomy Ratings Dominate Thursday

by at . Comments

Not that it matters to you, since you watch it anyway, but it's interesting to see that the Grey's Anatomy Season 5 premiere was a powerhouse in terms of national viewing.

It helped that CSI hasn't debuted yet (it will square off against its old nemesis Grey's Anatomy October 9), but Grey's dominated last Thursday night's ratings.

According to Nielsen data, "Dream a Little Dream of Me" had 18.3 million viewers in its two-hour premiere, easily topping last season's average of 14.4 million.

Can You Even Do That?

That's down 12 percent from last fall's 20.9 million premiere, but with DVR usage increasing, Grey's Anatomy should get a huge bump in viewership once those numbers are out, pushing it close or over the 20 million threshold. Good to see the show deliver on the hype!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.

Ellis

They say we can repress our memories. I wonder if we're just keeping them safe somewhere because no matter how painful they are, they are our most valuable possessions. They made us who we are.
