ABC hopes to power Shonda Rhimes’ takeover of Thursday night this season with an army of Twitter followers.
The network aims to build on “Scandal’s” template by promoting the night with the hashtag “#TGIT,” to focus fans on talking about “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and new entrant “How to Get Away with Murder” all night long.
Twitter, meanwhile, recently revealed the results of a study supporting the long-standing belief of uber-showrunner Rhimes and her casts that traction on Twitter — and an investment in having stars and producers live-tweet episodes along with fans — makes a difference in ratings.
“These are shows where they’ve got it down to a science to a certain extent,” said Anjali Midha, head of global media and agency research at Twitter. “They really know how to integrate Twitter, and what we now see from the data is that these guys were spot on. They really knew something about how this could drive conversation about their program.”
