‘Community’ Ratings Drops 42% in Its Second Week


For the second episode of its new season last night, Community’s ratings fell significantly after the premiere. The first new (post-Dan Harmon) episode of the season scored a 1.8 rating amongst adults 18-49, while last night’s got a 1.1 - dipping 42% and falling short of 30 Rock’s average (1.3) in the same timeslot this season. This was Community’s lowest-ever rating in the 18-49 demographic. To be fair, though, Valentine’s Day caused TV viewership on the whole to drop by 6%. Maybe watching a Halloween episode of a sitcom just isn’t anyone’s idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day.
