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

  • NBC’s Community hit another series low last night, scoring a 1.0 rating and 2.61 million viewers.  That’s down half a ratings point from last week’s 1.5 rating.
  • On the other hand, another excellent episode of Parks and Recreation saw a rise in viewership with a 1.6 rating and 3.01 million viewers.  That’s up two tenths from the last original episode’s 1.4 rating.
  • Over on Fox, Glee saw a pretty dramatic dip as it scored a 2.0 rating and 5.46 million viewers for a drop of four tenths from last week’s 2.4 rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Thursday, March 14th, including The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, 1600 Penn, The Vampire Diaries, and more.

*A quick note on CBS’s programming: the shows on The Eye were delayed in 3% of the country due to ACC and SEC basketball tournaments, so expect the final ratings numbers to change.
