Good Timing: ‘Community’ Finale Ticks Up In The Ratings Amidst Renewal Negotiations

It is not a huge bump (8% to 1.3/5 in 18-49, even with the show’s finale last year), but anything helps in complicated negotiations. That is what NBC and Community producer Sony TV are currently going through. The talks include five projects: Community, which looks hopeful for another, possibly shorter and possibly final, cycle; white-hot drama pilot Blacklist and comedy pilot Welcome To The Family, both of which look very good for a pickup; medical drama pilot Night Shift; and comedy pilot Brenda Forever, which is out of contention for fall but there is a possibility for a reshoot.
