- Parks and Recreation (NBC) - A repeat at 9:30pm did 1.54 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, again down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week and this time it didn't build from its lead-in.
Summing it up. Repeats of The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, were impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of Modern Family, The Middle) or just plain old terrible (such as repeats of New Girl and new airings of The Goodwin Games, Save Me).
