Another big drop for Glee this week. Week two attracted a 3.7 in the demo with 8.6 million viewers. That was a drop of 7.5% in the demo. If this keeps ups, it won’t be long before it dips below its series low, a 3.4 from back in April.
Season average: 3.9 demo with 8.91 million.

Episode 03-01: Tuesday, 9/20/11
While the first episode of the season still registered solid numbers, they’re way down from last years. It registered a 4.0 in the 18-49 demographic with 9.21 million viewers. Year-to-year, that’s a loss of 40% and matches last season’s downward trend. It’s still a hit but nearly as big as it once was. Glee was in second place in the timeslot, behind NCIS on CBS, and the lead-out sitcom New Girl did much better with a 4.8 rating.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 4.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 11.64 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Glee TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?

If you’re someone who hasn’t kept up with GLEE and hasn’t connected and fallen in love with certain characters, you have no write to say that GLEE is a horrible excuse for a show and should be cancelled. You can’t gripe that they are overly auto-tuned and terrible because in reality, a large majority of the cast are talented singers (YouTube some live performances and tell me they can’t sing) who have successful careers on and off the show, and had successful careers before being introduced on GLEE (Broadway, musical theater, etc.) There are certain characters/actors on GLEE that are inspirations and/or role models to hundreds of thousands of kids, teenagers, and adults. GLEE carries a decent message in most of their writing and is one of the best shows to be put on air. It’s a shame it’s on FOX, as they censor most of the footage of Blaine and Kurt. (My two favorite characters.)
I’m a HUGE fan of GLEE and will be deeply saddened if FOX decides to listen to the opinions of these people who know nothing about the true storyline and haven’t followed GLEE religiously since it’s start. Hopefully Ryan Murphy is able to rearrange some storylines, bring in improved writing, and win the hearts back of some fans. I know I for one will love it no matter what.

Glee is not relatable to most ppl; poor recycled storylines; over rated B rated actors with a few exceptions; autotuned to death singing; unhealthy codependent teen relationships poorly performed by 30 year olds….This show needs to rest and end on the final episode.

Ratings for the second half of the season were not stellar in comparison to the competition, but OK for Fox. However, with the top talent possibly gone next season, I only think the numbers will drop dramatically next season.

Glee is a horrible excuse for a show with pathetic acting and pathetic singing. I want to see it cancelled. THIS SHOW IS JUST SAD!!!!

The ratings are low. No they shouldn’t renew for a fourth season. It’s just good business common sense. Why renew a singing show just for some form of nostalgia. They can watch the old reruns on their Kindle fire or online or at the video store.

I would like for them to renew it for a fourth Season, I would like to see the glee Characters old and new stay. Maybe Show the one’s graduating what its really like in the adult world along with the one’s still in highschool still interacting with the one’s that graduated, Make sure to have some damn continuity to the show.

I think that Glee will be renewed for a fourth season but more than likely I wont be watching. Ive loved Glee since the start but since the characters Ive come to know and love will be leaving, I might not bother to watch the season premier for the fourth season. But hey you never know if Ryan might pull his head out his *ss and manage to find a way to keep the show alive. No offence to Ryan was intended Im just saying.

I think it will get renewed for a 4th season, but if most of the cast graduates which seams to be the plan I don’t think the ratings will be good at all next year. I’m not sure I’d watch it without the current cast. And he’s not even trying to get new characters. Damian was written in a foreign exchange student which means he’ll only be in this season.

Wow! I guess Glee fans were scared away from Fox by the baseball games. Nothing like sports to send Gleeks into hiding.
