GREY’S ANATOMY RETURNS, TOPS PRIMETIME ON THURSDAY

The return of an all-new episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy after the show’s nearly two-month absence attracted more than 12 million viewers on Thursday and was the highest-rated show of the night, according to overnight figures from Nielsen Research. In fact, ABC performed quite strongly throughout the night, landing in first place among viewers 18-49. However, it did so by default, facing only an unappealing patchwork of reruns on the rival networks. Even so, CBS, which airs mostly sitcoms on Thursdays, wound up with the most total viewers — 9.9 million, topping ABC’s 9.3 million.
