ABC’s all-Shonda Rhimes gamble pays off big on day four of premiere week

Thursday night’s primetime broadcast ratings!

1. Thursday Night Football won the night, as football tends to do, with a reasonable but unspectacular 16.3 million total viewers.

2. How to Get Away With Murder positively killed it with 14.3 million for its series premiere. In fact, the all-Shonda Rhimes Thursday game plan was a huge success across the board for ABC…

3. …with Scandal measuring 12.2 million…

4. …and Grey’s Anatomy still alive and well with 10.1 million. Nothing under 10 million all night long for ABC. The network has got to be thrilled.

5. The football pregame scored 7.2 million.

6. Bones connected with 6.3 million (and finally put FOX on the leaderboard).

7. The Biggest Loser weighed in at 4.5 million.
