Tuesday TV Ratings: AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Finale Holds Steady; GLEE Finale Falls to Series Low

     May 14, 2014


TV ratings are in for Tuesday, May 13th, including a number of season finales.  Briefly:

  • Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. closed out its uneven freshman season with a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 5.23 million viewers, which matches last week’s performance.  ABC has already renewed the show for a second season, so Agent Coulson and Co. will return this fall.  Read Evan’s recap of the episode here.
  • On the flipside, Fox’s Glee closed out its fifth season with a series low 0.6 rating and a mere 1.92 million viewers, dropping 25% from last week’s numbers.  Though Fox has already ordered a sixth and final season, don’t be surprised if the episode count for next year is lower than normal.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Tuesday, including Person of Interest, Supernatural, About a Boy, and more.
