Community aired its third episode since going on extended hiatus last night, but the first one against original programming on CBS - and it didn't miss a hilarious beat!

Against a new episode of The Big Bang Theory, as well as another American Idol results show, the fort battle between Troy and Abed held steady from last week's 1.7 number in the 18-49-year old demographic. Pop, pop, captains!
