Update: Pessimism resulting from the overnight metered market ratings was once again warranted. Tuesday’s 100th edition of “Glee” was a ratings disappointment.
Based on fast national data, the episode posted a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating with 2.80 million viewers.
Adding to the bleakness is evidence of an intra-episode audience decline. After opening with a 1.2 rating and 3.09 million viewers from 8-8:30PM, the episode settled for a 1.0 with 2.58 million in its second half hour.
Airing out of a “New Girl” repeat at 9PM (0.7, 1.57 million), FOX’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” posted a 1.1 with 2.50 million viewers at 9:30PM.
The novelty of the 100th episode might have prevented “Glee” from setting another series low, but it did not drive FOX’s fifth-year musical series to monster ratings.
“100,” Tuesday’s episode, settled for a mere 2.4 overnight household rating. Up from last week’s 2.1, the number is nonetheless disappointing considering the magnitude of the episode.
The adults 18-49 number, which will be released at 11:30AM, will likely fall in the disappointing 1.0-1.4 range.
Following a re-run of “New Girl” at 9PM (1.3), an original edition of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” then settled for a series low 1.9 overnight metered market rating.
