‘Community’ takes a dive in ratings, ABC’s ‘Zero Hour’ gets off to weak start

By Daniel S Levine,

Valentine’s Day was not a good one for the broadcast networks. Nearly every show was down, including CBS’ The Big Bang Theory. However, the big story is that NBC’s Community took a huge dive off a cliff in its second week back. ABC’s Zero Hour also got off to a disappointing start.

CBS still came in first place with 13.79 million viewers and a 3.3 18-49 rating. Big Bang kicked off with 17.625 million viewers and a 5.4 18-49 rating, notes HitFix. Two and a Half Men followed with 13.74 million and a 3.8 18-49 rating. Person of Interest had 14.8 million viewers and a 3.0 18-49 rating. Elementary capped off the night with 10.87 million viewers and a 2.2 key demo rating.

Fox was back in second with 8.75 million viewers and a 2.7 18-49 rating. American Idol had 12.33 million viewers and a 3.6 18-49 rating, while Glee had just 5.16 million viewers and a 1.7 18-49 rating.

ABC finished third with 7.565 million viewers and a 2.3 key demo rating. Zero Hour had 6.29 million viewers and a 1.3 18-49 rating, the lowest rated premiere during a season for ABC, notes EW. Grey’s Anatomy had 8.37 million and a 2.7 18-49 rating, while Scandal finished with 8.04 million and a 2.8 18-49 rating.

NBC had another tough night with just 3.48 million viewers and a 1.5 18-49 rating. Community had 2.75 million viewers and a 1.1 18-49 rating, a 42 percent dive from last week’s stronger-than-expected season premiere. That was also a series low, notes THR. Parks & Recreation took a smaller fall, drawing 3.15 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating. The Office had just over 4 million viewers and a 2.0 18-49 rating. A Law & Order: SVU repeat had 3.44 million viewers and a 1.0 18-49 rating, much better than Do No Harm’s last episode.

The CW’s Vampire Diaries had 2.3 million viewers and a 1.0 18-49 rating. Beauty & The Beast had 1.41 million viewers and a 0.5 18-49 rating.
