Ratings: FOX’s “Glee” Viewership Rises Slightly This Week

“Glee” is now in its final month, and it does not arrive with anything approximating ratings momentum.

Going into this Friday’s “The Rise and Fall of Sue Sylvester,” which was the tenth of the final season’s thirteen episodes, “Glee” had registered seven consecutive viewership totals beneath the two million mark. It had delivered three consecutive 0.6 adults 18-49 ratings.

From a realistic, big picture perspective, Friday’s episode did not introduce the much-desired momentum. It held steady in adults 18-49 and delivered another very low viewership total.

It did, however, narrowly best its predecessor in the latter category.

Per fast national data, Friday’s “The Rise and Fall of Sue Sylvester” drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating with 1.81 million viewers. Last week’s episode drew the same 0.6 but settled for 1.69 million viewers.

Only three episodes–and two weeks–remain in the journey of FOX’s “Glee.”

— FOX led into “Glee” with “World’s Funniest Fails” (0.8, 2.76 million).
