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.
