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.
