Thursday TV Ratings: COMMUNITY Finale Tops PARKS AND REC; SCANDAL Finale Surges

by     Posted 6 days ago

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

  • The season five finale of NBC’s Community saw a slight ratings uptick, rising 11% from last week’s series low 0.9 rating to a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and scoring 2.9 million viewers.  It barely edged out Parks and Recreation for the night, but that’s still far from a “solid” ratings performance.  And yet, a sixth season renewal is actually looking pretty likely since it would put the series in a lucrative position for syndication.  If NBC doesn’t renew Community and “Basic Sandwich” ends up being the series finale, we’ll all just have to assume a giant asteroid destroyed all life on earth.  It is canon, after all.
  • Over on ABC, Scandal closed out its buzzworthy third season with a 3.4 rating and 10.45 million viewers, rising 13% from last week and marking the show’s highest rated season finale yet.  A fitting end to what’s been a breakout season for the Shonda Rhimes soap.

Hit the jump for the rest of the TV ratings report for Thursday, April 17th, including Parks and Recreation, Parenthood, The Vampire Diaries, and more.

From writer/director Shawn Christensen, the indie drama Before I Disappear (playing at the SXSW Film Festival) tells the story of Richie (Christensen), a man at the lowest point of his life who gets a call from his estranged sister (Emmy Rossum), asking him to look after his eleven-year old niece (Fatima Ptacek) for a few hours.  As the night progresses, Richie finds himself caught in a battle between his two bosses, Bill (Ron Perlman) and Gideon (Paul Wesley), and soon figures out that maybe there is something else to live for.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Paul Wesley, who also served as a first-time producer on the film, talked about how he came to sign on for this project, how gratified he feels about the positive response the film is already getting, how involved he was in stretching the story from a short film (which won an Oscar) and shaping it into a full-length feature, how he also came to be acting in the movie, how different this character is from what he’s known for, how collaborative Shawn Christensen is, as a filmmaker, and how involved he was in the post-production process.  He also talked about trying his hand at directing, for the first time, with an episode of his CW series The Vampire Diaries, the experience of directing himself, that he’d like to direct a feature once his time on the show is done, and the type of projects he’s looking for.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.
