And we are now, officially, no longer in the darkest timeline

Not only has Community finally returned to the airwaves, bringing joy and happiness back to all our sad, dull lives, but last night's "Urban Matrimony and Sandwich Arts" managed to attract nearly 5 million viewers and, more importantly, scored a 2.2 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic. This news makes me gleeful! It's like my brain finally let my heart get in its pants! And Dan Harmon is excited about it too:

In all seriousness, though, this is really good news. A 2.2 might not seem like much, but between the ratings increase (up from the fall's 1.6 average) and the recent syndication deal with Comedy Central, things could be looking up! The similar increase for 30 Rock, which now airs right after Community, and the fact that Up All Night and The Office didn't see a ratings increase, seems to indicate that this was specifically a response to the study group's return. So, let's keep it up for the rest of the season! Six seasons and a movie!
