TV Ratings Thursday: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Leads ABC To Demo Victory

It wasn’t one of its best outings so far this season, but Grey’s Anatomy (10.94 million viewers; Adults 18-49: 4.0/10) still managed to win Thursday with adults 18-49, although the drama series declined by 520,000 viewers and 7 percent in the demo, compared to a week ago.

Earlier in the evening on ABC, a repeat of the holiday short movie Santa Clause is Comin’to Town reached 7.34 million viewers and a 2.3/7 among adults 18-49. Private Practice capped off the evening with 8.01 million viewers and a 2.9/8 in the demo and finished second in total viewers and first in adults 18-49 at 10pm.

Over at FOX, Bones (8.87 million viewers; A18-49: 2.4/7) shared the demo leadership with a repeat of The Big Bang Theory at 8pm. Following ‘Bones’ was the incompatible Fringe (5.13 million viewers; A18-49: 1.8/5), which surprisingly passed the 5 million viewers mark for a long time.
