Glee Season 6 Ratings Take a Dive

Glee’s move to Friday night from last season’s Thursday time slot, naturally brought lower ratings with it. But how low did it go? Entertainment Weekly reports that Glee stood as the lowest-rated regular episode for a series on a major broadcast network last night. It’s obviously Glee’s weakest premiere ever.

Glee earned a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, down 65 percent from a 2.0 for last season’s premiere. But it’s up 17 percent from a 0.6 for the previous season finale.

To understand how far Glee has fallen over the years. It’s highest rated show (excluding season 2’s post-Super bowl edition) Season 2’s “Britney/Brittany” posted a  5.9/17 rating in the demo, with 13.508 viewers.

Next week, Glee moves to it’s regular time slot at 9/8c PM.  However, I can’t imagine the ratings will improve.
