Community - Season 5

Tonight sees the one-hour premiere of the fifth season of Community. Will the return of series creator and showrunner Dan Harmon give the ratings a boost? Last year's premiere earned a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating, but the season four finale fell to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. Predict tonight's performance below, and justify your opinions in the comments!

    i guessed at 1.2 though i hope it does better. never watched but i root for it right along with my fave comedy parks and rec. but with parks performing the way it has, along with everything else on thursday, i don’t see it doing great unfortunately.

  • Dan

    1.7 at best

  • James

    I’ll say 1.6 – NBC has been promoting it all over the place and some viewers who left will likely check out the first episode with Harmon back.

  • Samunto

    I say 2.0-2.1. Lots of buzz and it always starts strong then drops. Plus The Millers is weaker than TAAHM last year.

  • steven

    I’m not expecting much. This will probably be the last season. This six seasons and a movie nonsense is so 3 seasons ago.

  • Hobbitual

    I’m going to be cautiously optimistic and say 1.8. NBC is really advertising it this season, the creator is back and the early reviews are very positive.

  • Why Watch

    A really pitiful excuse of a show.

  • Dennis

    I love community…
    but no…this time round..I just can’t see things going well.

    1.4 at best.

  • California

    Community – 1.5
    TBBT – 5.3 or more

  • NBC Fan

    The Taste-1.9
    The Assets-1.5

    The Big Bang Theory-6.0
    The Millers-3.0
    The Crazy Ones-2.2
    Two and a Half Men-2.2

    Sean Saves the World-1.2
    The MJF Show-1.1

  • Chris in Kansas

    January 2nd and up against a new Big Bang? They’re lucky to get a 1.3

  • Ryann

    Anything above a 1.4 will be fine by me.. NBC has failed with comedies this season so here’s to hoping community can cause an upward trend… SIX SEASONS AND A MOVIE!!

  • riley

    I don’t know if many people know that the show is on tonight. I really have not seen much advertising for it, Therefore I find it unlikely that it will break 3 million views and that it will get from a 0.9-1.3 ratings point.

  • Guardian Owl

    I’ll be optimistic and say 2.0.


    I went with a 1.6-1.8 since TBBT will surely do the big bang all over it!

    Although with no real competition from ABC, FOX or the CW (VD-R) it may even do better.

  • Nightfall

    I really, really like Community. So I hope for a big start.
    But since I´m peesimistic in nature and NBC itself has almost no buzz left and it´s up against a new TBBT, I say it gets a 1.1

  • Dan S

    While I don’t watch Community I say 1.3-1.5 for tonight. I hope it does better than P&R did at 8pm & hope it can boost its rating in the weeks ahead at 8:30pm.

  • reidjr


    Tonight it will do well but next week i can see it dropping hard.

    Why Watch
    A really pitiful excuse of a show

    I see you’ve never watched. Or do you just prefer shows with live audiences so you know when to laugh?

  • Eric McInnis

    I’d say a 1.6. I’ve seen some decent promotion, reviews are positive, and it usually does good on season premieres, and while I doubt a sixth season, I’m sure it won’t do that bad.

    The Taste: 1.7
    The Assets: 1.3

    The Big Bang Theory: 5.6
    The Millers 2.9
    The Crazy Ones: 2.2
    Two and a Half Men: 2.0

    Community: 1.6
    Sean Saves the World: 1.2
    The Michael J. Fox Show: 1.1
    Parenthood: 1.3
