ABC Picks Up 'Private Practice'

TVWeek's James Hibberd: Rated

By Published on .

In a move that should come as no surprise, ABC has picked up a full season order of its "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff "Private Practice." Since its second week, "Practice" has been the highest-rated show on Wednesday nights, dominating what's been considered the most competitive time period this fall. Primary competitor, NBC's "Bionic Woman," bested "Practice" during premiere week, but has since dropped in every subsequent outing. The most recent "Practice" episode earned a 4.3 rating among adults 18 to 49. The show marks ABC's first full-season pickup of the fall season.
