    Still good for The Crazy Ones !

  • tom

    I gotta ask, so did the second episode of Community adjusted up since it was 1.2 and now it’s 1.3 or is it just a rounding number?

  • Amy

    Why were the networks airing new episodes last week???

  • Valentin

    Happy for The Crazy Ones not adjusted down but kinda sad it wasn’t adjusted up. Hoping for next Thursday as the People Choice Awards will be on Wednesday, Sarah Michelle Gellar will be there, better do promotion a little.

  • Janet

    Good question tom!

  • Networkman

    The Taste should be second in the hour over Community.

  • RJC

    Did NBC decide to treat the two episodes of Community as one because the overall average rating for the hour was higher than the 8:30 half-hour rating would have been if it was considered a separate episode?

  • Networkman

    Unless Community beat The Taste in the 8pm hour and The Taste only picked up in the second hour.

    “Still good for The Crazy Ones”

    LOL seriously? A 2.0 with very weak competition after premiering with a 3.9.

  • Billy

    Crazy Ones fans have to stop with the enthusiasm. A 2.0 for a CBS sitcom is not good. This is not NBC, FOX or even ABC. This is CBS and the lowest sitcom always gets canceled. Right now TCO is the lowest rated CBS sitcom.

    @ rob60990

    LOL seriously? A 2.0 with very weak competition after premiering with a 3.9.

    Yes since it’s up from its “midseason finale”, won its timeslot and it’s not CBS’s lowest rated Comedy. CBS always cancels its lowest rated Comedy and this year it’s MOM. If The Crazy Ones stays around 2.0 it will be Renewed !

  • Matt

    A 2.8 out of a 5.4 is absolutely PATHETIC

  • Matt

    TCO will be canceled before Mom will

  • CBSviewer

    Right now TCO is the lowest rated CBS sitcom.

    MOM is their lowest rated Comedy. Even if The Crazy Ones is CBS’s lowest rated Comedy it can still be Renewed if they end Two and a Half Men in May.

  • Valentin

    In this case, Mike & Molly, Two & a Half Men, Mom and The Crazy Ones are all going to be cancelled! *irony*

  • Brandy

    Yay for Big Bang.VD & Reign repeat had exact same total viewers .

  • Dan

    @Networkman, look at the share for Community and Taste.

  • RJC

    TCO also has the benefit of airing in the afterglow of the highest-rated scripted broadcast network series, The Big Bang Theory, while Mom does not have that benefit. Also, Thursday at 9PM is not as competitive a slot as it was once was, with NBC’s comedies dying, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee aging. The expectation on TCO is probably higher than it is for Mom.

  • Valentin

    @RJC : Stop saying crap, The Crazy Ones is airing after THE MILLERS, not The Big Bang Theory.

  • John A

    Finally these numbers are in. Sick of reading comments people asking for them.
