Good news for fans of Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) and the rest of the students and faculty at Greendale Community College. NBC has decided to order a couple more installments of Community. That brings the comedy’s season total to 24 episodes.
Despite airing against CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, Community is NBC’s second most popular sitcom in the all-important 18-49 demographic. Last week, airing opposite $#*! My Dad Says, the show hit a new high with a 2.5 rating in the demo and 5.64 million viewers.
The six episodes that have aired so far this season have averaged a 2.1 rating in the demo and 4.77 million total viewers. That’s down a bit in the demo from last season’s 2.2 average but it’s positive that Community’s holding onto the audience with such strong sitcom competition.
