Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 Recently Received Some Really Great News Indirectly
Hey, “Grey’s Anatomy” fans. We’ve got some pretty good news to share with you guys about your favorite show. This is sort of indirect, great news for the show because it comes as a result of some negative news for ABC in regards to how they performed as whole in the ratings this past Thursday night, October 18, 2018.
As most of you are aware by now, Grey’s Anatomy did not air this past Thursday for reasons we’re not totally aware of. We think it was probably just one of their planned breaks to keep the scheduling on track. Whatever the case, we are hearing that Grey’s Anatomy’s absence from ABC’s primetime line up that night did not bode well for the network.
According to TheWrap.com ,which is the gossip department for the New York Post, ABC dropped from third to fourth place among the big networks in network ratings that night. We had ran a report that warned you guys Grey’s Anatomy would not be airing that night. In that report, we mentioned that ABC opted to air a couple of animated Halloween specials in Grey’s Anatomy’s 7 pm central time slot. One of them was the classic Charlie Brown Halloween special.
So yeah, it turns out that people aren’t too keen on watching animated cartoons in place of their Grey’s Anatomy. Who would’ve guessed? We’re being sarcastic with that statement for those of you who didn’t pick that up. Anyways, this really shows how important Grey’s Anatomy is to ABC’s network ratings which is why this is indirectly very good news for the show.
