‘Community’ ratings up in return, ‘Big Bang Theory’ beats ‘American Idol’ again

By Daniel S Levine,

CBS dominated another Thursday thanks to The Big Bang Theory, which clobbered American Idol. On the other end of the spectrum, NBC’s Do No Harm continues to be a thorn in the network’s side...and it is only in its second week.

CBS won the night overall with 14.23 million viewers and a 3.5 18-49 rating, notes HitFix. Big Bang kicked off the night with 18.85 million viewers and a big 6.1 18-49 rating. Two and a Half Men was also up to 14.145 million viewers and a 4.1 18-49 rating. Person of Interest returned with 15.16 million and a 3.2 18-49 rating, while Elementary saw slight boost with just over 11 million viewers and a 3.2 18-49 rating.

Fox was way back in second place with 9.61 million viewers and a 3.1 18-49 rating. Idol had just 13.15 million viewers and a 4.1 18-49 rating, a 9 percent drop, reports Deadline. Glee was up slightly to 6.06 million viewers and a 2.2 18-49 rating.

ABC had 7.2 million viewers and a 2.4 18-49 rating. Following a Shark Tank repeat, Grey’s Anatomy had 8.82 million viewers and a 3.1 18-49 rating. Scandal had 8 million and a 2.8 18-49 rating.

NBC was in fourth with 3.21 million viewers and a 1.4 18-49 rating. Community pulled in just under 4 million viewers and a 1.8 18-49 rating. That was the bright spot for NBC, since it was up 38 percent from its May 2012 season finale, notes The Wrap. Parks and Recreation was also up to 3.8 million viewers and a 2.0 18-49 rating. The Office had 4.3 million viewers and a 2.1 18-49 rating, while 1600 Penn had 2.8 million and a 1.1 rating.

The network would probably be better off at just not airing anything at 10 p.m. on Thursdays. Do No Harm drew 2.2 million viewers and a 0.7 18-49 rating, which was 22 percent worse than its record-low series premiere last week. It does not look like this show is going to last long.

The CW’s Vampire Diaries had 2.5 million viewers and a 1.1 18-49 rating, while Beauty and the Beast had 1.52 million and a 0.6.
