Schedules Plus Enhanced: ABC Thursday




Schedules Plus is the ultimate almanac to broadcast network primetime scheduling since 2001. It features lineups for three different parts of the year, as well as A18-49+ ratings that more fairly account for historical decline. For more on the tables and charts in Schedules Plus, see this primer.

This post covers ABC Thursday. The night was a complete wasteland for ABC during the years of megahits Survivor, Friends and CSI duking it out on Thursday. But a few years after the end of Friends, ABC put its hat squarely in the Thursday ring by bringing in medical megahit Grey's Anatomy. It took many years for Grey's to find a truly potent Thursday companion, fellow Shonda Rhimes creation Scandal, and then How to Get Away with Murder rounded out a night of top-to-bottom dominance soon after that. But those younger guns have faded of late, and it's Grey's Anatomy making an improbable re-emergence as queen of Thursday. See the 2015-16 breakdown.
