PLEASE Glee-aholics, don’t shoot the messenger! We’re only a few weeks into the season, but already certain nights have fallen into steady routines. Tuesday has become particularly settled, with “NCIS” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” leading the pack, and for a second week in a row ratings for “Glee” have dropped. However, the drop in ratings was only small and the show is still above the 8 million mark – but that hasn’t stopped the rumors of a possible cancellation from starting.
Per Toronto Sun:
Meanwhile, its performance on other media fronts is similarly diminished, from being a once-mighty iTunes force with which to be reckoned to its lackluster assault on the megaplexes over the summer. Glee song downloads are notably down this season, while Glee: The 3D Concert Movie took in a notably flat $11.9 million since opening August 14.
What happened to Glee was that it went from spins on popular current music to mostly Broadway. Not going to keep your audience that way. It also lost a few central characters along the way… remember Finn from the pilot? Plus, they did all the things in the first three episdoes that they said they were going to avoid – such as guest stars and pointless plotlines.
Seriously, do a new group of monkeys at typewriters come up with their scripts every week? Last year, Sue – the ultimate bully – became the principal crusading against bullying and now Mr. Shue – who picked on Emma’s OCD like a scab all of last year is lecturing her parents to be more sensitive? And then his “everyone gets a trophy” club starts picking on Mercedes and making fun of her for being fat? Such a tragedy that a show that started with so much promise has become such a horrible comedy of inconsistency.
