The post-Super Bowl episode of medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” will be repeated Thursday, Feb. 9, at 9:30 p.m. (ET), pre-empting an episode of the midseason comedy “Crumbs” and shortening ABC News’ 10 p.m. newsmagazine “Primetime” by a half-hour.

On its Feb. 5 airing, “Grey’s” posted the series’ highest-ever numbers in total viewers (37.9 million) and in the adults 18 to 49 demographic (16.5), according to Nielsen Media Research. It was the highest-rated non-sports event so far of the current TV season.

The pre-empted episode of “Crumbs” is scheduled to air Feb. 16.
