CR: ABC/Jack Rowand

Thursday nights are looking good for A Million Little Things. The ABC dramedy returned from its winter break to a nice boost in ratings thanks to the series’ new day and timeslot.

The series, which originally aired on Wednesdays, now airs on Thursdays at 9 PM EST following the network’s other mega-hit drama Grey’s Anatomy. The new timeslot boosted ratings for A Million Little Things to an all-time series high with over a 50% increase from its previous airing (nearly a month ago).

Here’s what ABC’s press release said about the show’s incredible rise in ratings:

“Returning for its first telecast in a month (since 12/12/18),ABC’s “A Million Little Things” shifted smoothly into Thursday’s 9 o’clock hour with a more than 50% increase over its last airing on Wednesday with Total Viewers (+53% – 5.2 million vs. 3.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (+57% – 1.1/5 vs. 0.7/3), marking its most-watched telecast ever and tying its series high with young adults (equaling its debut). ABC’s “A Million Little Things” tied CBS’ comedies for No. 1 in the hour among Adults 18-49(1.1/5 tied with “Mom”/”Fam”), while beating NBC’s comedies by 22% (0.9/4 for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”/”The Good Place”) and Fox’s “The Orville” by 57% (0.7/3).”

The official synopsis for the series reads:

“They say friendship isn’t one big thing, it’s a million little things, and that’s true for a group of friends from Boston who bonded under unexpected circumstances. Some have achieved success, others are struggling in their careers and relationships, but all of them feel stuck in life. After one of them dies unexpectedly, it’s just the wake-up call the others need to finally start living. Along the way, they discover that friends may be the one thing to save them from themselves.”

A Million Little Things will air on Thursdays at 9 PM EST on ABC starting in January.
