Despite a wild finish, Fringe's third season finale scored a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating in the preliminary numbers, down 8% from last Friday's 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. Barring significant adjustments in the final national numbers which won't be available to Monday, those shouting "1.5 or bust for the finale!" are...busted.
I'll have the full night's ratings (and total viewer info) up as soon as I can. Update: here they are.
