Glee's Ratings Slide, But Still Beat V's Finale

Although the Gleeks are still holding on, for a third straight night, 8 PM TV shows showed declines across the board.  Could it be that viewers are adjusting to daylight saving time?  Or is there some other hidden issues?

Last night, TV usage was down 6% in the hour week-to-week, likely affecting Fox's Glee and NBC's The Biggest Loser, the only new offerings at 8 PM.

The mini-finale of Glee (4.0/13, 12.5 million), which officially starts a month-long hiatus before returning for its last batch of episodes for the season, was down 13% from last week.

The good news?  Glee was the highest-rated program of the night in the 18-49 demo.

At 9 PM, Raising Hope (2.5/7) was down 7%, but struggling mid-season comedy Traffic Light (1.6/5) reversed its ratings downslide, up 7% from last week. Fox (2.3/7, 6.6 million) won the night in 18-49.  I'm personally pulling for Raising Hope which is my new favorite laugh out loud show.

Following a No Ordinary Family repeat (0.9/3), the season finale of V (1.8/5) was up 6% from last week (though down 14% from last year's finale.) V had a very depressing ending.  The aliens turned all the humans into zombies.  Were the writers taking a page from AMC's zombie hit?  V's finale plot was a big contrast with the uplifting conclusion of Glee with the club winning at regionals and getting a big trophy.

At 10 PM, Detroit 1-8-7 (1.3/4) was up 18% but it is probably too late to save the cop drama which has been rumored to be slated for cancellation.

NBC's two-hour The Biggest Loser: Couples (2.7/8) was down 7% from last week. It was followed by a repeat of America's Next Great Restaurant. CBS (10.8 million, 1.9/6) aired all repeats, but topping the night in total viewers.  CBS is definitely doing something right with their reruns.
