by     Posted 8 days ago

community-basic-story

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

  • Last night’s episode of Community, quite possibly one of the strangest yet (and that’s saying something), fell a tenth from last week’s numbers to a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 2.62 million viewers.  That marks a new series low for the NBC sitcom.
  • On the flipside, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory hit a “low” with a 4.6 rating and 15.99 million viewers, which is a dip of three tenths from last week’s 4.9 rating.  That’s a season low for the ratings juggernaut, though it still stood head and shoulders above everything else on Thursday night.

Hit the jump for the rest of the TV ratings report for Thursday, April 10th, including Parks and Recreation, The Millers, Scandal, Parenthood, Reign, and more.

TV ratings for Thursday, March 13th are in, though the preliminary numbers for CBS and the CW may be inaccurate due to preemptions and delays.  Here’s a brief rundown:

  • NBC’s Community was even with last week’s series low 1.0 rating and scored 2.89 million viewers, while Parks and Recreation didn’t fare much better by dropping two tenths to a 1.1 rating and 2.73 million viewers. Parenthood, meanwhile, was even with last week’s 1.2 rating and garnered 3.87 million viewers.  For some perspective on the shifting low-rated sitcom landscape, I highly suggest reading Vulture’s recent piece on the matter.
  • Over on ABC, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was down a tenth from last week to a 0.8 rating and 3.12 million viewers, Grey’s Anatomy dropped three tenths to a series low-tying 2.3 rating and 7.13 million viewers, and Scandal dropped one tenth to a season low 2.7 rating and 8.09 million viewers.

Showrunner Rob Doherty Talks ELEMENTARY, the Darker Sherlock, the Unexpected Casting of Moriarty, Returning Characters, and More

by     Posted 86 days ago

elementary-rob-doherty-slice

The drama series Elementary is a modern-day take that follows the brilliantly gifted Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and his sober-coach turned crime-solving partner, Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu), while they crack the NYPD’s most impossible cases.  It’s a unique, intriguing, darker take on the story that has also proven to be very unexpected.

While at the CBS portion of the TCA Press Tour, executive producer/writer Rob Doherty talked about why this is a much darker Sherlock, how he approaches the procedural stories to facilitate character growth, the unexpected casting for Moriarty, when some familiar faces might return again, and the pressure of coming up with cases that would challenge someone as brilliant as Sherlock Holmes.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Thursday TV Ratings: COMMUNITY Returns to Premiere Low; THE BIG BANG THEORY Rises

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief rundown:

  • NBC’s Community returned for its fifth season (with Dan Harmon back as showrunner to boot) to a premiere low 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.03 million viewers.  That’s down six tenths from last year’s 1.9 debut for the lackluster fourth season, but it wouldn’t be Community without low-yet-manageable ratings.  Though the 1.3 is indeed a disappointing rating, it speaks to NBC’s troubled comedy lineup that this number is enough to keep Community afloat for now.
  • Over on CBS, The Big Bang Theory returned to a whopping 5.3 rating and 18.93 million viewers, easily destroying everything else in both demo ratings and total viewership.  That’s up two tenths from its last original episode’s 5.1 rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings rundown for Thursday, January 2nd, including Elementary, Parenthood, The Crazy Ones, and more.
