TV Premiere Ratings Notes For Thursday, January 2, 2014: Community (NBC), The Crazy Ones (CBS), Sean Saves The World (NBC), The Michael J. Fox Show (NBC), Elementary (CBS), Parenthood (NBC), The Assets (ABC)

I'm going to be lazy and steal the numbers from TV by the Numbers today, just to get this over with.  There isn't much to say, other than that just about everyone's numbers for their first show back from the holidays were pretty damn bad.

Community (NBC, Thursdays at 8pm ET)

3.74 million Overall Viewers (8pm episode)
1.3/4 in the 18-49 Demo

3.03 million Overall Viewers (8:30pm episode)
1.2/3 in the 18-49 Demo

Community fans, you can thank NBC for this lackluster start.  All they needed to do was put Community and Parks and Recreation on Fridays at 8pm and 8:30pm, and you would see another season for each show.  Instead, they put them right back where they were nearly failing, and guess what?  They're still failing.  For the last two seasons, I have told Community fans not to fear one bit, they would be coming back, despite everyone else thinking they'd get canceled.  Well, Community fans, it's now time to worry, because this is probably it.

The Crazy Ones (CBS, Thursdays at 9pm ET)

8.24 million Overall Viewers
2.0/5 in the 18-49 Demo

After the huge Fall start of this show, CBS has to be scratching their heads about why this show is now officially on the bubble.  With ratings like these, it looks like I jumped ship at the proper time...right at the beginning.

Sean Saves the World (NBC, Thursdays at 9pm ET)

2.77 million Overall Viewers
0.8/2 in the 18-49 Demo

There were some outright hilarious moments in this episode, and the show is still outright dead.

The Michael J. Fox Show (NBC, Thursdays at 9:30pm ET)

2.52 million Overall Viewers
0.8/2 in the 18-49 Demo

Oh, is this still on?

Elementary (CBS, Thursdays at 10pm ET)

8.92 million Overall Viewers
1.8/5 in the 18-49 Demo

This show is consistently one of the best performers in the DVR ratings.  This is CBS, people, so you're putting too much faith in them to not be stupid over this show's ratings.  I think it will get another season, but these numbers are terrifying for such a great show.

Parenthood (NBC, Thursdays at 10pm ET)

3.99 million Overall Viewers
1.3/3 in the 18-49 Demo

Can you say, "final season"?

The Assets (ABC, Thursdays at 10pm ET)

3.78 million Overall Viewers
0.7/2 in the 18-49 Demo

I didn't even know this show was on until Tuesday.  I don't remember anything about why this show is here.  I recorded it, but have no idea what it's about other than like spies or something.  So, 0.7 can't come as a shock to anyone.  That might even be higher than they should have expected, with such an invisible show.  Thanks for reading.
