    It was Parks’ 100th episode. Community and Parks also seem to help each other in the ratings.

    8pm 5.7 for TBBT. 9pm 2.4 for TCO. Yeah so really worth celebrating. Imagine how badly CBS would do without TBBT? Would any comedy crack a 2.0?

  • Brandy

    Yay BBT!

  • PRW

    Ever heard of CT/MT?

  • brutony

    Yes, Patrick, don’t you know Eastern and Western time zones rule the airwaves-BOW to us Coasters, lol!

  • CrimTV

    @John A

    The retention from TBBT is the least of their worries, all comedies on their network consistantly hit 2.0+, something that the other networks can’t reach.

  • Ron

    @John A Definitely 2 Broke Girls and How i Met Your Mother can crack a 2.0 without a lead in.

  • Valentin

    @JohnA : Talk about retention, how about The Millers’ one? 5.7 to a 3.3 –‘

  • Brock

    …Jeez, when are people gonna get tired of TBBT? It’s so weird.

  • Dan S

    Happy to see P&R as NBC’s highest rated show last night. Hopefully this will bode well on the show getting at least 1 more season.

  • Carl

    Happy for Parks and Rec.

    @Brock, as long as people still like the characters, the ratings may stay close to this level. It’s when sitcoms become nasty and bile-ridden that viewers move away. That or when sitcoms try too hard to be quirky.

  • Markitos

    YAY for Parks & Rec :D

  • John A

    Im not defending the millers all 3 are terrible. At least two and half men is old and people are tired of it.

  • Kissan

    Why do so many people watch TBBT?! I don’t get it. Good job for Community and Parks & Rec and it looks like they help each other out. I have a feeling the NBC comedy line up would do better if MJF was on at 9 and SSTW at 9:30. A multi cam in between single cams doesn’t work good. I love how Parenthood has been a self starter practically all season. I don’t care about CBS, I don’t give a crap about that network. Let’s all hope The Blacklist can hit a 2.7-3.0 on Monday and let’s all hope Michael J. Fox and James Spader win at the Golden Globes!

  • CBS makes me happy

    @ Nissan oh your a fan of NBC say no more

  • Cameron Brown

    Hey NBC, flip the 8pm and 9pm hours and see what happens.

  • Charmed

    Community & P&R definitely coming back

  • Pepper

    I think Community and P&R will be back for final season next year, as long as they can hold at around those numbers. Too many other problems on NBC right now to worry about those two

  • jj

    TBBT= the most undeserved ratings on tv. Jokes are corny. Way too much laugh track. Boring comedy. It was ok when it first started but way too annoying.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Looks like maybe there’s a synergistic relationship between Community and Parks.

    Go Elementary!
