“Grey’s Anatomy” Heads for ER with Lowest Ratings Again, Second Week Under 5 Million


Is Meredith still on the beach?

“Grey’s Anatomy” ratings last night fell below 5 million for the second week in a row to lowest numbers ever.

Last night the show dropped 7.2% in the key demo, and 1.73% in total viewers to 4.88 million. So far the 17th season isn’t going well and it almost feels like it’s on purpose.

All the threats of “Greys” being cancelled do seem real at this point. Star Ellen Pompeo wasn’t really even on the show last night, her character, Meredith wasn’t playing Beach Blanket Bingo. She was just in a coma waiting to see if ABC has more money for her.

TV land is so bad right now with ratings that even at 4.88 million “Greys” was the second highest rated show of the night, behind its spin off, “Station 19.”

And down down we go.
