Delayed Viewing Ratings: ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Modern Family’ Surge in Week 8

Both ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Modern Family” broke into the top 10 of the Live+7 key demo ratings during week 8 of the 2017-2018 broadcast season, which began on Nov. 13.

According to Nielsen data, “Grey’s Anatomy” went from a 1.8 to a 3.3 for an increase of 83 percent. “Modern Family” was close behind, rising from a 1.7 to a 3.1 for an 82 percent increase. “Modern Family” was returning from a two-week hiatus, with its rating in the key demo rising by nearly 17 percent compared to the last original episode to air before that in the Live+Same Day ratings. “Grey’s Anatomy,” meanwhile, was down very slightly in both measures in the first episode to air after its 300th aired on Nov. 9.

Elsewhere in Live+7, “This Is Us,” “The Good Doctor,” and “The Big Bang Theory” held onto their top spots in both measures. ABC claimed 9 of the top 25 spots in the key demo rankings, while CBS claimed 13 of the top 25 spots in total viewers.
