After 100 episodes, Fox’s Glee is showing its age.
The musical recently fell below 3 million viewers and a 1.0 rating in the key 18-to-49 demographic, matching its series low this week with a 0.9. It is among the lowest-rated series already renewed for the 2014-15 season, though the current batch of 22 episodes has been reduced to 20 as a result of a production hiatus at the start of the season. Fox might film the two cut episodes early to better promote what could be a supersized 24-episode sixth and final run.
“My condolences to other media outlets that so desperately want Kurt to be with anyone but Blaine that they tweet things like “Kelliot > Klaine” during episodes. It must be very difficult for you to hear your new favorite toy loudly support Klaine.”—LeakyNews “Glee Recap 5.14” (X)
“Blaine bought a couch infested with bedbugs that leads to the most ridiculous montage of Klaine shrieking and compulsively cleaning and showering. I’m so glad these two are back together on a regular basis, because the comedic interaction between Darren Criss and Chris Colfer is one of the best parts of Glee and exactly the breath of fresh air the show needs.”—
“Blaine puts toothpaste on Kurt’s toothbrush! Kurt picks out Blaine’s clothes! They dance! They pillow fight! They shop! They touch more in a two minute performance than they have in the entirety of the series!”—LeakyNews (via bandwagonjumping)
