  • The season—and possible series—finale of NBC’s Community hit a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 3.14 million viewers, which is up a tenth from last week’s 1.2 rating.  Though the show is still very much on the bubble for renewal, the latest word is that NBC might actually pick the show up for another season after all.
  • CBS’ Elementary fell to a new series low with a 1.8 rating and 9.15 million viewers, dropping two tenths from last week’s series low 2.0 rating.  Nevertheless, the better-than-it-has-to-be Sherlock Holmes show has already been renewed for a second season.
  • Elsewhere at CBS, The Big Bang Theory dropped three tenths from last week’s 4.9 rating to a 4.6 rating and scored 15.7 million viewers.  Despite the drop, the comedy juggernaut still managed to stand way above anything else on television for the night.

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in, and the networks faced a sharp drop in viewership against the NFL Draft.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • NBC’s fantastic new drama series Hannibal sadly saw another drop in ratings, as last night’s episode hit a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.4 million viewers.  That’s down four tenths from last week’s 1.4 rating.
  • Even though CBS stalwart The Big Bang Theory drew more total viewers than all of NBC’s programming combined (yes, really), the show hit a season low rating of 4.2 for a drop of a full ratings point from its last originals’ 5.2 rating.  Nevertheless, the comedy dominated the night with 14.38 million viewers.
  • Back over at NBC, though, a Jim Rash-penned episode of Community notched a series low 1.0 rating and 2.4 million viewers.  A sad fate for what was by far the best episode of an uneven season.

Thursday TV Ratings: COMMUNITY Suffers Huge Drop for Series Low, ZERO HOUR Premieres with Record Low, SCANDAL Eclipses GREY’S ANATOMY

Thursday night’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • It wouldn’t be Community without drama.  Following last week’s promising numbers for the show’s long-delayed season four premiere, the comedy fell hard last night with a 1.1 rating in the demo and 2.75 million viewers.  That’s down a whopping 42% from last week’s premiere, but it’s also important to note that TV viewing as a whole was down last night in lieu of the Valentine’s Day holiday.
  • The series premiere of ABC’s Zero Hour (read Allison’s recap here) didn’t drum up much interest.  The Anthony Edwards-led mystery adventure drama scored a 1.3 rating and 6.29 million viewers, which is ABC’s lowest rated premiere in the 18-49 demo ever.  On the bright side, it scored the second most-watched series premiere this year behind The Following.
  • ABC’s soap Scandal surpassed lead-in Grey’s Anatomy for the first time ever, scoring a 2.8 rating in the demo versus Grey’s’ 2.7 rating.  The show netted 8.04 million viewers.

Thursday TV Ratings: COMMUNITY Returns Up, PARKS AND RECREATION Earns Season High, DO NO HARM Plummets

by     Posted 1 year, 75 days ago

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • After a last-minute postponement from its planned October bow, season four of Community finally kicked off last night and the results—ratingswise at least—are pretty good.  The premiere scored a 1.8 rating and 3.98 million viewers, which is up 6% from its 2011 season three premiere rating of 1.7 and up 38% from the season three finale rating of 1.3.  Creator Dan Harmon’s absence was certainly felt creatively in the episode, but it appears that fans are still keen on keeping up with the goings-on at Greendale Community College.
  • A particularly sharp episode of Parks and Recreation featuring quite possibly the funniest scene in the show’s history notched a season-high 2.0 rating and 3.83 million viewers, which is up 18% from its last original episode’s 1.7 rating.
  • NBC’s new series Do No Harm, which scored the lowest-rated debut in network TV history last week, fell even harder last night with a 0.7 rating and 2.18 viewers for a 22% drop from last week’s 0.9 rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Thursday, February 7th, including The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, Elementary, The Vampire Diaries, 1600 Penn, and more.

  • The splendid series finale of 30 Rock notched the show’s largest audience in two years and highest ratings since March of 2012, with a 1.9 rating and 4.8 million viewers.  That’s up half a ratings point from last week’s 1.4 rating.  Blimpies!
  • NBC’s new series Do No Harm, on the other hand, was a rather massive failure, as the show’s 0.9 rating and 3.13 million viewers scored the lowest-rated in-season premiere of any Big 4 network scripted program ever.  Makin’ history, folks.
  • Coming off a couple of insane series highs, The Big Bang Theory finally came back down to earth with a 5.3 rating and 17.51 million viewers versus its last original episode’s 6.4 rating.  Alas, the show was still the highest-rated and most-watched program of the night.

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • The Big Bang Theory continues to soar, as last night’s Star Trek-themed episode notched yet another series high for the comedy with a whopping 6.3 rating and 19.8 million viewers.  That’s up from last week’s rating of 6.1 rating, which at the time was a new series high.  How much higher can the show go?
  • Also up was NBC’s departing comedy 30 Rock, which hit a 1.4 rating and 3.77 million viewers (man that looks tiny next to BBT’s numbers).  That’s up a tad from its last new episode’s 1.1 rating, but the numbers don’t necessarily matter anymore since the series finale is only a couple of weeks away.
  • The new NBC comedy 1600 Penn, which had its series premiere a few weeks ago, made its timeslot debut last night with a 1.6 rating and 3.93 million viewers.  That’s down from its debut’s 2.2 rating, but we should have good feel for the show’s true audience when a wholly new episode airs next week.
