'The Office' Rating Down 17 Percent Post Steve Carell's Exit


NBC is ranked fourth after FOX, CBS and ABC respectively on May 5 primetime hours although 'Parks and Recreation' and '30 Rock' posted higher ratings.

Michael Scott, once again proves to be an essential character on "The Office" despite his annoying behavior. After Steve Carell's exit from the half-hour comedy, the ratings dropped about 17 percent and NBC is placed fourth in the key 18-49 demo.

Will Ferrell who plays Deangelo Vickers continued his guest-star stint but Nielsen noted that only 6.8 million people tuned in to the May 5 episode at 9 P.M., down from 8.4 million previously. The Peacock was ranked fourth network-wise with FOX taking the crown, thanks to "American Idol" and "Bones". CBS came second, followed by ABC.

Nevertheless, NBC's other comedy "Parks and Recreation" was up 13 percent this week with 5.1 million and 2.6, and the season finale of "30 Rock" scored 4.2 million, 2.1 or up 11 percent.

In the midst of Michael's absence, Mindy Kaling and Ellie Kemper bring back Subtle Sexuality. The singing duo drops a new webisode for a single called "The Girl Next Door". B.J. Novak's Ryan makes a cameo in the video which is also attached with a behind-the-music feature.
