McHale admitted to Gold Derby senior editors Rob Licuria and Chris Beachum that earning Emmy recognition for “Community” remains an uphill battle. “With the competition we’re up against on Thursday nights (“The Big Bang Theory” on CBS and “American Idol” on Fox), it’s tough. I hope there’s awareness for it.”

Were he to be nominated, McHale says he is lucky to have a load of episodes from which to choose one for screening by the Emmy judging panels. In addition to “Intro to Political Science” (where he performs “Faith” while running for student government), he is also considering “Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking” (his character both hopes and fears his long-lost father might visit) and “Critical Film Studies” (parodies of “My Dinner with Andre” and “Pulp Fiction” have him opening up about his past).

‘Big Bang’ Vs. Community

By , May 24, 2010

Grab the Thursday comedy mantle by moving Monday hit Big Bang Theory to anchor the night.

Traditionally staid CBS is making the most dramatic move for the 2010-11 TV season. Seizing the opportunity to take over the Thursday-night comedy mantle, the network will move current Monday-night hit The Big Bang Theory—which recently landed a rich syndication deal and is averaging 14.1 million viewers and a 5.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic—to 8 p.m. on Thursday. It will lead into the new William Shatner comedy $#*! My Dad Says.

“Nothing is setting the world on fire [Thursday at 8 p.m.],” noted Kelly Kahl, senior executive VP of CBS Primetime.

Formerly the time slot of iconic NBC comedy Friends, this fall Big Bang will go head-tohead with NBC’s Community, a promising comedy that is still a long way from hit status. $#*! My Dad Says, based on the Twitter phenomenon, will be competing against NBC’s 30 Rock.

The two-hour launch of “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” drew big numbers for CBS on Thursday night. Not only did the premiere dominate its regular 8 p.m. hour, but it beat “Grey’s Anatomy” at 9 p.m. and helped “The Mentalist” crush “Private Practice” at 10 p.m.

CBS started the night in first with an 8.2/13 for “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” which also averaged a 4.6 demo rating. FOX’s repeat of “Bones” was second with a 4.9/8. ABC’s “The Deep End” was third overall, but tied for fourth in the key demo. NBC’s “Community” and “Parks and Recreation” had a 3.2/5 and finished second for the hour in the 18-49 demo. The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” was on the low side with a 2.3/4 and a 1.5 demo rating.
