‘Glee’ and ‘Community’ get much-needed ratings boosts, but ‘Big Bang Theory’ still tops

By Daniel S Levine,

NBC’s Community got a much-needed boost in the ratings on Thursday, although that isn’t saying much considering where the show was last week. Elsewhere, Glee experienced a huge jump.

However, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory still won the night. According to HitFix, CBS averaged 12.87 million viewers and a 3.0 18-49 rating. Big Bang started off with 17.43 million viewers and a 5.4 18-49 rating. Two and a Half Men followed with 13.56 million and a 3.9 18-49 rating. Person of Interest had 14.39 million viewers and a 2.8 key demo rating. An Elementary repeat had 8.72 million viewers and a 1.6 rating.

Fox came in second with 11.61 million viewers, but topped CBS in the demo with a 3.3 18-49 rating. The Wrap reports that a 90-minute American Idol special had 12.9 million viewers and a 3.5 18-49 rating, which was down 5 percent from last Thursday. But since Glee started at 9:30, the show got a 47 percent jump with 7 million viewers and a 2.5 18-49 rating.

ABC had just 3.93 million viewers and a 1.1 18-49 rating. The network’s line-up was all repeats. Shark Tank did the best, though, drawing 4.4 million viewers and a 1.2 18-49 rating, but both Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal had around 3.7 million viewers.

NBC was also mostly repeats. The network averaged just over 3 million viewers and a 1.1 18-49 rating. A new Community was up 25 percent, but that only brings it up to 3.36 million viewers and a 1.5 18-49 rating. 1600 Penn was also new, drawing 2.18 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating.

The CW’s repeats of Vampire Diaries and Beauty & The Beast averaged 906,000 viewers and a 0.3 18-49 rating.

Univision easily topped ABC and NBC, drawing 4.28 million viewers and a 1.8 key demo rating.
