“Scandal” Falls To Ratings Low; “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Catch” Also Slip

Scandal [ABC]

While not the series’ least-watched episode, Thursday’s “Scandal” presently ranks as the show’s lowest rated in adults 18-49.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, the broadcast drew a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating and 6.00 million total viewers.

Viewership actually bests the 5.88 million mark posted by the previous installment on April 7, but the rating trails that episode’s 1.7.

Barring an upward adjustment in the finals, it will also reflect a series low. On a live+same-day basis, “Scandal” had never previously gone below a 1.6 in the key demo.

— ABC’s other two “TGIT” series also suffered losses this week. After scoring a 2.2 with 7.97 million viewers for last week’s two-hour installment, “Grey’s Anatomy” was down to a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating and 7.62 million for this week’s 8-9PM episode.

“The Catch” was down from a 1.0 and 4.76 million last week to a 0.9 and 4.62 million this week.
