    Grey’s Anatomy #1 drama for 3 consecutive telecasts!

  • Jeff (Canada)

    Big Bang Theory and Modern Family as usual fight for the top spot. 2.5 Men was a distant 3rd with a still great 4.0 rating.

    And with no NCIS’s last week, Grey’s was the top drama with a 3.4 rating while Revolution and Once Upon A Time were chomping on its heels.

    And of course, The Walking Dead trounced EVERYTHING with a 5.8 rating.

    Did Fox shut down its broadcast last week ?

  • American

    @serg
    That’s funny, isn’t it? Not one FOX show in either Top 25’s.

    60 Minutes way up and Big Bang Theory stable.

  • TVClyde

    Fox had the NLCS baseball playoffs last week, so that explains the pre-emption of their regular schedule. This continues over the next week with their coverage of the World Series.

  • Bill

    @Jeff (Canada)

    —”And with no NCIS’s last week, Grey’s was the top drama…”—

    What do you mean “and with no NCIS’s”? Grey’s almost always beats NCIS in the demo.

  • Sam

    I love how whenever “The Voice” is the top rated non-sports programs, the headlines never say that. But if “Modern Family” or “Big Bang Theory” are the highest rated non-rated programs you automatically put it in the headline.

    WHAT IS THIS WEBSITE’S VENDEDA AGAINST NBC?

  • Steve

    Love how 60 Minutes goes up during an election cycle. It is also further proof that my generation is getting older. Wish the New Normal would crach the top 25.
