Yeah the episode wasn't over the top rolling on the floor laughing for 30 minutes, but it was a lot of fun.

Of course maybe I'm having withdraws.

Good episode.

Was Pierce ranking his weddings an in-joke? It felt like it, especially when Abed emphasized it, but I couldn't place where it was from.

All I could think of was Denny Crane from Boston Legal. We might just be over thinking.

Yeah, in what has largely been a lackluster season so far, this episode was a real good one if you ask me.

Anyone know about the ratings it got?

From TVbythenumbers.com....

Without the CBS comedies at 8pm, NBC got a big boost. The post-hiatus return of Community drew a season high 2.2 adults 18-49, up 46% vs. a 1.5 rating in its last new episode in early December. 30 Rock had a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, also a season high, up 43% vs. a 1.4 rating at 8pm last week.
I think it will be renewed, NBC is just going to try to get Sony to give them a better deal. What I just posted SHOULD prove to NBC that their Thursday comedy block is long dead. However this is NBC and they pulled it off the air for no reason.

Even better from TVline.com...

http://www.tvline.com/2012/03/rating...ere-community/

NBC’s Community returned from its too-long hiatus to 4.9 million total viewers and a demo rating of 2.2, delivering increases of 36 and 47 percent over the comedy’s most recent outing (on Dec. 8 ) and a 14-month, non-sports time slot demo high for NBC.
What’s more, NBC points out that Community – with Bang Bang Theory benched by NCAA hoops — was No. 1 among Adults 18-34 and Men 18-34 during its half hour, besting even a little show called American Idol. Cool, cool, cool…
Year-over-year, Community was up 29 percent in the demo, while versus its season-to-date average it delivered a 38 percent gain.
That teed up 30 Rock, now in the 8:30 slot, for week-to-week gains of 18 and 43 percent, hitting 4.1 million viewers and a 2.0 rating.

Until Big Bang shows up again.

It doesn't seem to be a lot to brag about when the competition is taking a break.

BBT is competition for Community in the same way that Justin Bieber is competition for Mozart.

Besides, it beat The Office which had a new episode, I don't think it's a stretch that the ratings are pretty good news for Community. Six seasons and a movie bitches!

The competition is ratings, content is irrelevant, BBT will get renewed and Community is struggling. There IS a competition in that timeslot. And NBC continually gets curb-stomped, despite my wishing otherwise (I basically only watch NBC it seems! I'm loving the Community-30Rock-Office lineup so much!)

And did it really beat the Office? Is the "share" the number to brag about? I'm not really sure, but it doesn't seem there was much of a win, either way.

Communty 2.2 (rating), 7 (Share), 4.75 million viewers.
The Office 2.4 (rating), 6 (Share), 4.87 million viewers.

Average episode. Glad it's back but it wasn't worth the wait really.

It was a decent episode...at least we know there is some awesome stuff waiting for us down the road. I wasn't expecting them to come back with a huge bang.

Ok, so it was a slight loss after adjustments. But the point is that The Office is considered to be one of NBC's stronger shows in the ratings. Community doesn't need to compete with Big Bang's numbers, it needs to do well relative to the numbers NBC as a network manages to pull.

I don't even pay attention to time slots, the days where TV networks get to schedule when I watch their shows is long gone. Is Community in Big Bang's slot? I'm sure the NBC executives will take that into account come a renewal decision. They know they can't compete viewer for viewer with a big CBS show.

But they WANT to. If they have a show they think will be MORE appealing to a larger number of people, Community is gone.

NBC hasn't given UP (though, yeah, based on content, it seems to be so) in competing with the other networks.

The reality is they ARE in competition with other networks, time slots and ratings DO matter.

Not exactly, they don't just need a show that they think will appeal to more viewers than Community, they need numerous such shows. As TV by the Numbers might put it, they don't need outrun the 'cancellation bear', just some of the other shit on NBC.

I didn't say ratings didn't matter, my whole point was that ratings do matter and the ratings they got are a good sign, not a bad one. Not because the ratings are runaway smash hit status, but because NBC knows whatever piece of vomit they pull out of their pilot season will probably end up worse.

And hey, it looks like they may have inherited those sweet Subway product placement dollars. Those bucks helped kept old Chuck afloat a lot longer than most people thought was possible.
