Good news, Human Beings! Community went up — just a tick, but still — in its long-awaited Season 4 return. Thursday's premiere drew 4 million viewers and a 1.8 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up a tenth from last season's premiere and up five-tenths from the Season 3 finale. That's also higher than the dearly departed 30 Rock's average in the timeslot and is Community's best performance since March 15, when it returned from a lengthy midseason hiatus. Which canceled show should return? Community boosted Parks and Recreation (3.8 million, 2.0) to a season high and The Office (4.2 million, 2.1) rising two-tenths. 1600 Penn (2.8 million, 1.1) and Do No Harm (2.2 million, 0.7), however, both dropped, with the latter plummeting 22 percent. CBS won the night, led by The Big Bang Theory (18.8 million, 6.1), which was up 13 percent. Airing its first episode since its post-Super Bowl show, Elementary (11 million, 2.3) rose a tenth. Big Bang beat American Idol (13.1 million, 4.1) by a full two points in the demo, as the Fox series fell four-tenths. Glee (6 million, 2.2) inched up a tenth. On ABC, Grey's Anatomy (8.8 million, 3.1) was up 11 percent and Scandal (8 million, 2.8) tied a series high. 8 p.m.CBS: The Big Bang Theory 18.8 million (6.1); Two and a Half Men 14.1 million (4.1) ABC: Shark Tank (R) 4.8 million (1.3) Fox: American Idol 13.1 million (4.1) NBC: Community 4 million (1.8); Parks and Recreation 3.8 million (2.0) CW: The Vampire Diaries 2.5 million (1.1) 9 p.m. CBS: Person of Interest 15.1 million (3.2)ABC: Grey's Anatomy 8.8 million (3.1) Fox: Glee 6 million (2.2) NBC: The Office 4.2 million (2.1); 1600 Penn 2.8 million (1.1) CW: Beauty and the Beast 1.5 million (0.6) 10 p.m. CBS: Elementary 11 million (2.3) ABC: Scandal 8 million (2.8) NBC: Do No Harm 2.2 million (0.7)
