Thursday TV Ratings: COMMUNITY Falls to New Series Low; THE BIG BANG THEORY Dips to Season Low

     April 11, 2014


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.
