· Despite facing original competition from CBS's "Big Bang Theory" for the first time in three weeks, "Community" (1.1/3 in adults 18-49, 3.0 million viewers overall from 8-8:30 p.m. ET) matched its 18-49 ratings of the prior two weeks, which were achieved versus encore competition from "Big Bang." L+7 Time-Shifting: This season's first two weeks of "Community" have added an average 38% or 0.50 of a rating point to its next-day "live plus same day" 18-49 rating in "live plus seven day" results (to a 1.83 in L+7 from a 1.33 L+SD).

· Despite facing original competition from CBS's comedy lineup for the first time in three weeks, "Parks and Recreation" (1.2/3 in 18-49, 3.0 million viewers overall from 8:30-9 p.m. ET) equaled its 18-49 ratings of the prior two weeks, which were scored while the CBS competition was in rebroadcast. Last night's "Parks" built on its "Community" lead-in by 9% in adults 18-49. L+7 Time-Shifting: In the fourth quarter, "Parks and Rec" increased by an average of 50% in 18-49 rating (to a 1.8 from a 1.2) and 1.0 million viewers overall (4.1 million vs. 3.1 million) going from L+SD to L+7 ratings.

Excluding that special and NFL football on Thanksgiving, these are NBC's best results in the time slot since Sept. 26. In the time period, "Saturday Night Live Presents a SNL Sports Spectacular" is #2 in adults 18-49 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, just a tenth of a point out of first place versus mostly original competition, and #1 among those nets in adults, men and women 18-34.
