|TGIT This Season|
|3.1/2.53/2.4 (Grey's Anatomy premiere/avg/fall finale) |
3.8/3.14/3.1 (Scandal premiere/avg/fall finale)
3.8/3.04/3.1 (HTGAWM premiere/avg/fall finale)
This three-hour block thoroughly dominated the Thursday entertainment landscape in the fall, but it will find a tougher slate of competitors for its return. Even if Backstrom tanks in week two, an American Idol-led Fox will be far stronger than it ever was in the fall. NBC figures to have one of its best Thursdays of the season with a two-hour The Biggest Loser finale and the Parenthood series finale. And The Big Bang Theory is back in original business. These shows aren't so overwhelming that TGIT can't increase from the fall finales, as Grey's and Scandal did last year. But I don't see them making serious runs at the fall premiere numbers.
Grey's Anatomy PLUS Scandal PLUS How to Get Away with Murder Over/Under: 9.35.
