  • John A

    Great for TBBT but 2 terrible episodes in a row. TVD repeat adjusted up too.

  • hannah

    Wow all shows did pretty good last night! Parks & Community look like they’ll make a good team! TBBT was awesome last night!

  • John A

    Still have 2 week wait for TVD to come back.

  • Valentin

    YEAH The Crazy Ones gained 1 million viewers and 0.4pt in 1 week!! :)

  • nathan

    Watch out for #2 NBC Thursdays! Too bad it took fox and the cw taking the night off and abc doing…whatever abc is doing these days.

  • Wagner

    Season high for Parks.

  • Billiam

    Totally Incredible for TBBT. Does anyone know if this is a series high?

  • Charmed

    Yes The Crazy Ones! Great night for CBS

  • Charmed

    Highest total viewers for TCO since episode 3!

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt


    Series high in viewership for an episode at 7:00. The 7:30 episode after the premiere hit a higher viewership.

  • Charmed

    TBBT 0.09 away from highest total viewers!

  • mathew

    @Patrick Ausgewahlt i think you mean 8:00 and 8:30

  • Oliver

    Looks like Parks/Community help each other.

    In viewers? Yes. In 18-49? Nope, it got 6.4 last season on January 10.

  • Oliver

    Aha, everyone else is right. Second most-watched episode in total viewers for TBBT.

    The show is skewing older this season.

  • RJC

    Why did NBC do so well at 8 last night? Do Community and P&R really have that much crossover with The Vampire Diaries or The X-Factor that their ratings go up like that when those shows aren’t there?

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt


    Sorry, I am in the central time zone, so it is 7:00 and 7:30 for me, but I should have written Eastern because that is how it is written on the chart.


    TBBT + P&R made even better–sweet!

    GO CBS!!

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt


    Parks and Recreation was the 100th episode, so some fans tuned back in. Community was hurt my the Sugar Bowl last week.
