Glee Season 5 Ratings: Slight Increase for Episode 6 — How Much?
Things are starting to look up in the way of Glee ratings, the key phrase here being “starting to.” But still, we’ll take what good news we can get. Via TVLine, the ratings for November 21’s Season 5, Episode 6: “Movin’ Out” are in. Here’s what we’ve got:
With the noticeable exception of October 10’s Glee Season 5, Episode 3: "The Quarterback” at 7.4 million viewers, ratings this season have been consistently low. The past two weeks saw only 4 and 4.5 million viewers, respectively, and this week’s number dropped ever so slightly down to 4.4 million.
The outlook was a bit better when it came to demo ratings, though. Episode 6 ended up with a 1.6. Though still a far cry from the 2.8 demo rating of the Cory tribute, it’s up a tenth of a percent from the previous two episodes, which were both at only 1.5.
Clearly, ratings could be a lot better. But hey, at least they’re pretty much holding steady instead of continuing to slip! Of course, it should be noted that next week’s Season 5, Episode 7: “Puppet Master” airs on Thanksgiving night, and last year’s Thanksgiving episode was Glee’s lowest rated of all time. But the week after that is the Christmas special and who doesn’t love Christmas?We still have hope that Glee’s ratings can go up; it just hasn’t started happening yet.
