College Kids Boost "Grey's Anatomy," "Office" Etc.
A series of TV shows got a bump in viewers now that Nielsen is finally starting to pay attention to the millions of young adults who go to college. Yep, for all these decades, Nielsen let college students slip through the cracks. Now the Associated Press is reporting that "Grey's Anatomy" scored its highest ratings since the season debut and "The Office" and other shows got a boost in the millions as well. I suppose this means cynical networks DON'T want Nielsen to go into retirement communities and start measuring viewership in the TV room.
