Grading multicamera drama is more or less the same.

There may be an overall correction that helps get you started with the characteristics of each camera, but grade overall is generally done on a clip-by-clip basis. Each grade solution that you come up with can be saved and applied to any other clip by a couple of mechanisms -- drag and drop, save and enter, creating groups, they're all in manuals and online tutorials. The way I work, I try to "carry" a set of corrections forward until I hit a whole new world and if nothing works, engineer a new grade... which will work for a while longer, with tweaks as the show unreels.

But. The only way to create true continuity from shot-to-shot is to see how they play together as an edited property. That is the nature of the human visual system, its just the way it works because the mind is watching the values and because human vision is "color-constant", what a viewer perceives, as the clips play out, is always relative to what they saw last. For me, its a fallacy to think that a show's media can be pre-corrected and then hope to hang together after edition.
