About the series
Grey’s Anatomy is a hit American medical and romantic drama television series that is currently airing on the ABC channel in the United States. The popular drama series was created by Shonda Rhimes (she created Private Practice and Scandal) who also serves as executive producer alongside Allan Heinberg, Betsy Beers, Debbie Allen, Krista Vernoff, Mark Gordon, Mark Wilding, Marti Noxon and Joan Rater. Grey’s Anatomy is co-produced for ABC by ShondaLand, The Mark Gordon Company and ABC Studios. Season 1 of Grey’s Anatomy debuted on the ABC channel on March 27, 2005.
Season 12 of Grey’s Anatomy premiered on the ABC channel in the US on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT. Remarkably, the fifth episode of the current season will mark the 250th episode for the hit show. There was some concern that after Dr. McDreamy was killed off in previous season, the show will lose its flavor and it will affect the ratings. The previous, eleventh season of Grey’s Anatomy has averaged 8.22 million viewer per episode (which was only a 3% decline when compared season-to-season). To the network’s delight the season 12 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy attracted 9.55 million viewers and after just a few episodes season 12 is faring very well.
