Grey’s Anatomy: Season 10 Ratings

Greys Anatomy: cancel or renew?Though the ratings for Grey’s Anatomy have been dropping and the show is expensive to produce, ABC renewed it for a 10th season. Will the numbers continue to fall? Will it be renewed for season 11 or will it be cancelled? Time will tell.

Grey’s Anatomy follows the personal and professional lives of the staff at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital in Washington. This season, the ensemble cast includes Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Patrick Dempsey, Sara Ramirez, Kevin McKidd, Jessica Capshaw, Sarah Drew, Jesse Williams, Camilla Luddington, Gaius Charles, Jerrika Hinton, and Tessa Ferrer.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    I fell in love with this show in 2011, after watching reruns on cable station while recuperating from several surgeries. Shonda knows how to get my attention. I find myself relating with various cast members and their dialogue commands my attention every week. However, I fear with Christina leaving the show, it will loose its sarcastic flair. To find a character to replace her is challenging. Still, We have another two seasons to watch . But, Its my guess they will kill off her character for the OMG moment. Drama!!!!

    If ABC would stop showing other programming in the place of Grey’s Anatomy, perhaps the ratings would go up. It seems that every time I plan to watch Grey’s Anatomy, ABC has put something else on!! If ABC would rather put another show in the time slot that Grey’s is in, then maybe another channel should pick it up?!!

    Looking forward to Grey’s Anatomy finally returning.

    I don’t understand – Series used to start in September, now it’s late October and by December they’re taking a winter break?
