Ratings: 'Grey's Anatomy' comes back to life

Posted on

Grey’s Anatomy stole Thursday night with a sweeping almost-proposal from Dr. McDreamy, and a cameo from Kissing Jessica Stein‘s Jennifer Westfeldt. Even more impressive was the coattail-riding Private Practice, which latched onto Grey‘s with a cross-show cliffhanger and almost doubled its viewers from last week’s new episode. In other cameo news, Jon Hamm began his three-episode arc on 30 Rock — but he couldn’t help boost the acclaimed comedy’s ratings. Hell’s Kitchen‘s numbers slipped by about 3 million viewers, but Bones stayed strong in its new time slot.
