Thursday TV Ratings: COMMUNITY Holds Steady at Series Low, PARKS AND RECREATION Drops, and SCANDAL Dips

     March 14, 2014


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.
