Episode 03-01: Tuesday, 9/13/11
Season three of Parenthood debuted to a 2.2 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic and 6.29 million viewers. That was a decline of nearly 19% in the demographic when compared to the second season’s premiere. Not a positive start, especially considering that the episode had very healthy lead-in support from America’s Got Talent (a 3.8 rating and 13.67 million viewers).

Reference point: The 2010-11 season of Parenthood averaged a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.34 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Parenthood TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?

Leave Parenthood on the air!!!!!!!!! My life revolves around it.

Maybe ratings would be better if it were on more consecutive weeks.

I (and my sisters) feel this show is not on enough. Bring it back and with MORE episodes.

Enough of this “reality” show crap! MORE PARENTHOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never write comments on anything, but I must write on this. Please renew this show! It is one of the only shows that I make plans to watch each week and I will miss it terribly during the break. It is such a down to earth presentation and relativily realistic portral of the modern American family. I love the realism. It is like meeting up with a family member each Tuesday evening and discussing what’s going on. I have never viewed a show that makes me feels so right “at home” as this show does.

I watch this show every time its on. It shows how a family lives outside the core. How can you take a good series off. Our world is getting corrupted by shows that are not wholesome.
Do you consider DVR ratings? With life so busy people DVR there shows.
I am frustrated that good shows go by the way side. I leave watching tv channels when they keep ditching good shows. When will our voices count?

There are very few programs I consider worthy of “appointment television” but this is one of them. Many shows I would just simply wait to watch later on DVD without commercials, but Parenthood keeps me hooked week to week, to see what happens. I hope the show continues.

Does the rating take into consideration households that record the show or Tivo it? I do that with everything so I can scan through the commercials. GREAT Show, it’s the only thing my wife and I watch together on TV.

Please keep this show on the air. I absolutely love and think it is a well written show. Also, the actors and actresses are amazing. They deserve whatever award is given for a primetime tv show. Please, I beg of you to renew this show for next season. There are other shows of less quality in script and acting that should be cancelled and they haven’t been. So again, I beg!!!!!!!!!!!

I love Parenthood! It is the only show that I actually plan to watch! The reality stuff is way overboard and there are too many currently on the TV. NBC would be crazy not to renew this well written show for a 4th Season.
