Animated Show From 'Community' Creator Dan Harmon Looks Like a Hit NY Magazine
Dan Harmon, the creator and former executive producer of NBC's “Community,” is finding success with his Adult Swim animated series “Rick and Morty,” reports Joe Adalian at New York Magazine’s Vulture.
The show “is turning into something of a juggernaut with young men: Last night's [Monday, Jan. 27] episode jumped up to a 1.5 rating with guys under 35, putting it ahead of FX's ‘Archer’ (1.4 in that demo) and everything that aired on the Big Four broadcast networks (save for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and ‘2 Broke Girls’),” Adalian reports.
The show even outpaced “Community's" episode last Thursday, when the NBC comedy earned a 1.0 in men under 35, the story says.
Adalian adds: “Adult Swim hasn't renewed ‘Rick and Morty’ for a second season, but with these numbers it's probably just a formality at this point.”
