TV ratings: 'Community' tumbles on Valentine's Day while 'Zero Hour' premieres softlyAdd to Favorites | Community
Ratings were down more or less across the board on Valentine's Day, as people were out celebrating their love and whatnot. But while overall TV usage was down about 5 percent, NBC's "Community" suffered a much bigger fall. Its adults 18-49 rating dropped from 1.9 for its premiere last week to 1.1 Thursday.
Elsewhere, ABC's "Zero Hour" premiered pretty weakly, with only a 1.3 in the 18-49 demographic. The soft lead-in pushed "Grey's Anatomy" down some, but "Scandal" stayed strong, topping "Grey's" in adults 18-49 for the first time. "Glee" was also down for FOX.
CBS led the night with 13.8 million viewers and an 8.4 rating/14 share in households. FOX (8.75 million, 5.3/8) came in second, a little bit ahead of ABC (7.6 million, 5.0/8). NBC was a fairly distant fourth with 3.5 million viewers and a 2.2/4. The CW (1.9 million, 1.2/2) trailed.
CBS also led the 18-49 demo with a 3.3 rating. FOX took second with a 2.7. ABC finished third with a 2.3, followed by NBC, 1.5, and The CW, 0.8.
