Some of the longest-running series in primetime are still drawing in sizable audiences.
Five shows that are in at least their 10th season landed in the top 20 for seven-day, adults 18-49 ratings gains in the week of Nov. 11. ABC's Grey's Anatomy (season 16) tops the list, tying for the third-largest bump of 0.96 points (with FX's nine-year-old American Horror Story).
AMC's The Walking Dead (season 10) is tied for eighth; NBC's Law & Order: SVU (season 21) ranks 10th; CBS' Survivor (season 39, in its 20th year on the air) is tied for 17th; and CBS' NCIS (season 17) is tied for 20th. ABC's Modern Family (season 11) also usually ranks in the top 20 but was pre-empted for the CMA Awards.
NCIS, SVU and Grey's Anatomy also placed in the top 20 for total-viewer gains for the week, while Survivor and The Walking Dead are in the top 30.
