    Woo hoo for Community!

    Still good for Person of Interest!

  • Michael

    I’ve noticed lately, American Idol doesn’t even adjust upward anymore.

  • The Original J

    Great news for Community.

  • Raykov

    Go Community…. #SixSeasonsAndaMovie

  • Oliver

    Elementary got no post-Super Bowl bump at all.

    The Office, Parks and Community as NBC’s top comedies yet again.

  • John A

    Pity for TVD didnt adjust up but the competition at that 8pm slot is big unlike any other night and still TVD is No.1 on CW.

    I’m sad. B&TB doesn’t adjusted down.

  • RandyL

    Elementary should be cancelled.

  • Tea

    Go Grey’s

  • SJ

    And NBC cancels Do No Harm in 3, 2…

    Elementary saw no post-Super Bowl bump. Wow. That’s gotta be disappointing for CBS.

    Great return for Community. Against all odds and reason, Parks and Rec has been doing better in the fairly unprotected 8:30 time slot than it was when it was following The Office. Like I said, these are the two comedies that need to be renewed. If I were NBC, I’d cancel everything else and start from scratch, with Parks and Rec and Community airing on Fridays.

    I’m hoping that Elementary gets shipped to Sundays and Hawaii will stay on Monday/Tuesday.

  • John A

    Surely DNH will be pulled im shocked it hasnt yet.

  • Guardian Owl

    welcome community surprise.

  • TVDude

    Not bad for Community, and against a HUGE TBBT. And NBC wants to replace these with Go On and TNN. Good luck with that. They certainly don’t know what the term “broad” means.

    I mean, the non-Thursday shows have been pulling 1.1-1.3’s. Parks and Community have no reason not to be back if this sticks.

    Someone tell me why CBS wasted a Super Bowl lead in on Elementary? The should have done 2 Broke Girls or one of their actual hits that had a chance to grow.
