    I hope V could climb back to 2,0+ next week

    Unless that + equates to something like 0.5 or 0.6, it won't help all that much. A show that expensive and that has dropped that fast can't just hover around the low 2.0s. It needs to jump back to the upper side of the 2.0s at the very least to have a reasonable shot.
  • It held onto most of the lead-in from The Biggest Loser, which still looks good (2.4 out of 2.8)
  • Myles, I think you're being generous with both of those numbers. I'd look for Glee to do a bit less than your guess, but I'm not much of a ratings guessing man. And the goodbye rating for a Fox scripted show at this point is definitely a 2.5 or less, and will likely drop a bit more by next season.
  • I'm guessing Glee returns in the fall to somewhere in the neighborhood of 4.2-4.5 average for demos. It's not going anywhere if it stays above a 3.0 though, especially on FOX...

    I hope V could climb back to 2,0+ next week
  • Empire
    V looks to be finished, could still hang on for another season, but by a thread. Glad to see Glad continue to do so well, it is well deserved, there are no other shows like it. Parenthood did seem to fall a bit but still holding onto the 10 p.m hour even if a very small margin of victory, still looks good for NBC. Don't know if Parenthood will keep the same time slot this coming Fall, always felt it was way to lighthearted for the 10 pm hour, but if NBC likes the numbers, I'm just happy it was renewed early.
  • Alex
    I'm less interested in Glee's performance in Fall for season two and more interested in how the final episodes are going to do. Isn't it scheduled to air 2-3 episodes after Idol has finished this season? I know the season finale at least is after Idol has wrapped for the year. I'm more interested in what those episodes do than what it does in the Fall.
  • Julia
    I would guess high 3's-low 4's in the fall and then back up to 5's in the spring. I just hope Fox puts it at 8 on Tuesdays and lets it lead into something.
  • marcelrochester
    Yeah, the "fall finale" which didn't have much of a lead-in got a 3.7, and look at the state of affairs now, based on most-recent episode:
    below 3 CSI , 24 & Simpsons
    3+ but below 3.7 Office, Loser, Housewives, Grey's, Survivor, NCIS 1 & 2
  • i am shocked idol and glee virtually tied in viewers 18-34
  • Holly
    Will it stay in the 5s without Idol? No. Will it still do really well? Yes.
  • Alex
    I suppose the real question for Glee now is can it hold these numbers without an Idol lead-in? If there's not a drop after Idol's off the air (and there's no reason to believe there'd be a huge drop with women since it was already massive with that demo before the weekly Idol lead-in) then this show is just scary.
  • denverdean
    NCIS and NCIS:LA have been tracking much closer due to DWTS biting into audience. Who would have thought Tuesday at 8/7 would be most competitive hour?
  • Which is still quite low, even for the CW.
  • marcelrochester
    Yeah, and 2 weeks ago it was ahead of Idol; last week it lost to Idol by 0.1.
  • Cause the number that matters for them is the 1.5 in W18-34
  • SJ
    Yikes, I was hoping for The Good Wife to be adjusted to 2.3 in the finals, but there's always next week, I guess...

    Um, why did The CW renew 90... whatever? A 0.7 has to be bad even for their miserable joke of a network.
  • Julia
    Whether Nielsen counted it in the season average or not, ABC would still know it was there and it would still factor into their decision about whether or renew or not.
  • ABCHasProblems
    It would've been somewhat better for V to air its new episode at 9pm instead of 10:02pm after a REPEAT of Lost. The repeat episode of Lost wouldn't have counted for its final season average had it started at 9:58pm. It's possible that V would've received a 1.9 demo if the new episode aired at 9pm, but at least it wouldn't have counted towards its season average.
  • This will be the 3rd straight week Glee is the #1 scripted show in the demo right? Yay!
  • I'm always impressed of how many woman 18-34 Glee has in comparison to Idol. They have 7 million viewers apart and the same amount of W18-34.
  • I think the most interesting thing about Glee is that it got 3.5 in M18-34. Pretty good for a musical.
