ABC, which aired the season finales of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” Thursday, won all three primetime in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.
According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, 8PM drama “Grey’s Anatomy” drew a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 7.71 million overall viewers. It was the night’s #1 show in both columns.
The numbers top the 1.8 rating and 7.02 million viewer mark drawn by last week’s episode.
“Grey’s” led into the two-hour season finale of “Scandal.” While the show also won the 9-11PM timeslot in both columns, the news was not exclusively positive.
The two-hour broadcast lost viewers in its second hour. It drew a 1.3 rating and 5.46 million viewers at 9PM and a 1.1 rating and 5.12 million viewers at 10PM.
The drop may be somewhat understandable — any lingering “Grey’s Anatomy” viewers would have been gone by the 10PM hour, and television usage drops in the 10PM hour — but it is certainly not a statistic worth celebrating.
Last week’s episode drew a 1.4 in the demo and 5.10 million overall viewers.
