    I’m confused again. 2 posts below this one claimed TBBT was the top rated in live + 7 day for 18-49. This post claims MF is. Maybe it’s just me but there seems to be way too many different types of statistics on ratings anymore. Soon we will have highest rated while drinking coffee; or highest rated with the lights off, or highest rated while still in your day clothes. lol

    The Big Bang Theory was #1 Show while Grey’s Anatomy was #1 Drama.

    Yaaay for Grey’s!

    Considering the year to year declines, I would say that it is a considerable feat to be the #1 drama.
    So many much newer dramas don’t even approach Grey’s ratings.
    ABC also can boast that Scandal is the fastest growing drama this season.
    Last year at this time, few were predicting that Scandal would become one the biggest dramas on broadcast television.
    I bet ABC is praying that NASHVILLE will also enjoy a similar trajectory next season.

    :roll: The article is stating that on average, Modern Family is the season’s biggest L+7 gainer. The Big Bang Theory was just the biggest L+7 gainer for this week.

    No much to say, just painful, and on her style of writing Shonda left us believing that Calozona had dealt with all their problems and all was fine, as Callie even says to Arizona, all excuse for Shonda to bring up her favorite topic Cheating, adultery, that is what she wanted to write about, the rest was just excuse for accomplish this goal. Will Dr Lauren come back for Shonda through Arizona rub that on Callie’s face? Did she bring into the story the woman Owen cheated with and rub that on Cristina’s face? They dealt with it without the presence of that woman, why not the same with Calzona? No she wants to destroy Calzona, why? What is really behind Shonda’s new Calzona SL?
