Good news, Grey's Anatomy fans: our show is rocking the ratings.

Fans were irate over the long wait for Season 8, Episode 10: “Suddenly,” but it looks like the annoyance didn't stop anyone from tuning in. According to TV by the Numbers, Grey's pulled in 12 million viewers, and a 4.5 rating in the coveted demographic of adults 18-49 — a season high.

That made Grey's the number one prime time network show of the night. Of course, with many of the other networks running repeats, this isn't a huge surprise, but it's still good news.

It seems like when things go wrong for the docs at Seattle Grace-Mercy West, they go very right for Grey's Anatomy.

Remember to tune in to the next episode on Thursday, January 12, at 9 pm ET/PT on ABC.
