New girl crush alert! ABC's "TGIT" (Thank God It's Thursday) swept the small screen on Sept. 25, with the help of Shonda Rhimes' new executive-produced series, How to Get Away With Murder.
According to preliminary ratings from Nielsen, the pilot of Murder, starring Oscar nominee Viola Davis, opened with 14 million viewers at its 10 p.m. ET slot. To give perspective, Scandal's season four premiere, which aired one hour earlier, drew in an audience of 11.9 million -- its biggest ever.
