The debut of "30 Rock" in Germany on Sunday night pulled a 0.0 rating, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That means less than 5,000 viewers tuned in, THR says.
According to the report: "asking Germans to laugh is never easy, but the debut was below even the lowest forecasts of broadcaster ZDFNeo. The digital niche channel, which is run by pubweb ZDF, had made "30 Rock" the flagship in its new relaunch, promising more cutting-edge programming for a younger demographic."
