TV Ratings Report: Hungry for Community

at . Comments

Community (finally!) returned to NBC last night, giving the network a smidgeon of good news in the face of recent disastrous ratings for Smash, Do No Harm and Deception.

The season 4 premiere garnered a 1.8 number among 18-49-year olds, a slight uptick from the 1.7 opener in September 2011. Hey, Greendale fans will take what we can get!

Happy Shirley!
