Community – Pillows and Blankets

Despite the fact that Thursday night’s Community just might have been their best episode ever, Big Bang Theory had Stephen Hawking as a guest star which managed to make Community’s ratings and viewers drop to the lowest since their return. Check out how they did in the ratings here.

I cannot believe that NBC doesn’t see the big problem here. Big Bang Theory airs only on live TV, so if people who want to see Big Bang, miss it, they are unable to see it anywhere else. Community, however, can be seen the next morning on Hulu. I know a substantial number of people who watch Community, but not one of them (other than me) watches it on their television. These viewers are part of a relatively new but REALLY important demographic, as each month more and more people turn to their ‘devices’ to watch their favorite shows. And, I’d bet that these viewers are part of the much sought after age group demographic as well. So… if the only way viewership is being counted, is by the very out-of-date Nielsen ratings, well then, they are missing a HUGE part of how people now watch shows! If these viewers were counted in the total, I’m sure Community’s fan-base would show.

As always, whether you missed the grand kerfuffle that tore apart New Fluffytown or just want to put on your magical friendship hats again, Pillows and Blankets is now on Hulu.

As a side note, so all those big executives know how much we love Community, go vote for them in this “best in show” poll on Hulu. They are in the final round against the Walking Dead.
