It’s only been on for three weeks, but could rookie NBC comedy Perfect Couples be dead in the water already? The gang at TV by the Numbers seems to think so, saying that its 18% plunge in the ratings last week pretty much guarantees that it won’t live to see the spring. This Thursday’s ratings for the show should cement things, unless a miraculous turnaround is in the works. Ouch.
In happier news, they list Community as “more likely to be renewed than cancelled” and Parks and Rec as “certain to be renewed” by May. This three-hour block is fun and all, but maybe it wouldn’t be an awful idea to just bring it down to the four shows that people seem to really love?
