So…NBC's Ratings Last Night Were…Yeah

We all missed our NBC comedies, right? Right? We might be the only ones. They did realllllllly bad in the ratings last night. Everything was down. The most shocking is The Office, which brought in only 4.32 million people, with a 2.1 18-49 rating. That is 46% down from last season's premiere. Last season's finale brought in only a 2.3 but premieres tend to do better than most episodes. Parks and Rec also did terribly, bringing in a disappointing 1.7 rating in the demo, which is the same as their season 4 finale. Up All Night came in with a 1.3. SNL Weekend Update Thursday garnered a 1.6, 69% down from the 5.1 2008's election special brought in. And this was against mostly reruns from their competitors. For comparison, the third episode of Go On, which was really solid, brought in 9.28 million viewers an a 3.4 18-49 rating. Sure, Go On has the massive lead in with The Voice but it's hard to ignore that things are afoot. Hell, even The New Normal beat all these shows with a 2.2 rating.

    I bet alot of people didnt even realize these shows were returning. Think of the crap NBC had on all Summer. Do you think fans of the Office or Parks would have even seen the promos running on the network?
