I’ll grant that The Office has been erratic this season. But the ratings for the other three shows — 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation and Community — aren’t so much a signal of NBC’s decline as they are a signal of the USA’s sheer bad taste.
(And the fact that, as many commenters note, the folks who watch quality show are increasingly likely to watch on Hulu or elsewhere online.)
