Airing out of “Toy Story Of Terror” rather than its usual “Grey’s Anatomy” lead-in, Thursday’s “Scandal” fell to new series lows in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

It led into “How To Get Away With Murder,” which tied its low in the demo and set a new one in viewers.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Thursday’s “Scandal” drew a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 4.67 million overall viewers.

Barring upward adjustments in the final report, the numbers will rank as new low points for “Scandal.”

“HTGAWM” posted a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 3.58 million viewers this week. Last week’s episode posted a 1.0 and 3.88 million.
