Wednesday, October 1, 2014


The ratings news for Viola Davis’ new ABC drama “How to Get Away with Murder” just keep getting better.

The show debuted last week with 14 million viewers, topping its lead-in “Scandal,” which had its highest rated debut with 11 million viewers.

Now that the dust has settled and 3-day DVR ratings have been tallied as well, “HTGAWM” has even more to smile about with news of a record breaking 6 million more viewers added on- for a total of 20 million viewers.

The really kick-ass part- the part that actually keeps shows on the air, is that it garnered a 5.8 rating amongst the coveted 18-49 crowd, the crowd advertisers actually care about.

The show’s record breaking and history making DVR ratings make the show an almost shoe-in for early renewal, assuring ABC another bonafide hit via Shondaland Productions.

Congratulations to Viola Davis who in my opinion sold this show on the strength of her talent alone- proving once again that there is an audience for shows helmed by classically beautiful black women.
