Despite losing original stars Sandra Oh and Dempsey in the last two years, Grey’s remains ABC’s No. 1 drama among adults 18-49. The show has racked up a number of bragging rights when it comes to its enduring popularity, like how viewership of the 2005 pilot has more than doubled over the past five years and how 57% of all Grey’s viewers ages 18-34 have discovered and caught up with the show online.
But this, by far, is ABC’s best stat for Grey’s: if you add video-on-demand and online viewing with the show’s network performance,Grey’s is actually up 6 percent year-to-date in adults 18-49, 13 percent among adults 18-34, and 11 percent in women 18-34. Take that, McDreamy!
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC and wraps its 12th season on May 19.
