'Fringe' Falls Back To Low; 'The Finder' Goes Low Too (Blame Joss Whedon?)

Fringe shed a tenth of a ratings point vs. last week falling to a series low-tying 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and The Finder marked its second Friday appearance by shedding two tenths from last week dropping to a series low 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.  I'm guessing many are marking the "Joss Whedon's 'Cabin in the Woods'" square on their Fan Excuse Bingo cards.

Via @MaskedScheduler:

Both #Finder and #FRINGE were at a .9 rating in 18-49 viewers

The night's full ratings are now posted.

    Fringe is DEAD :D

  • Spain

  • AlcoholicsAnonymous


  • Dennis

    Fringe will get a 5th season, ratings mean nothing now :)

  • Mamoru

    I’m just gonna assume that Fringe has been renewed for 13-episodes of Season 5. *indenial*

  • Tom

    Ugh. But I still believe Fringe will be renewed. The Finder is dead, FOX will not choose a show that marks the same ratings of a 4th year veteran.

  • and

    finally fringe is done… .9 embarrassing

  • Brandon

    ^ too bad it’s a “sure thing” for renewal.

  • chris

    Nah Joss movie was nothing like the Hunger Games with the buzz factor.

  • AlcoholicsAnonymous

    Love the “blaming Joss Whedon” headline (a reference to the idiots who blame the ‘Hunger Games’ from weeks ago).

  • Dennis

    All the haters are going to look stupid when we still get a 5th season :) :)

  • and

    There’s no way it’s coming back. It was losing money for them with a mid 1 demo. Now under a 1? It’s finished.

  • JakeSnake

    Fringe will still get five seasons, but I knew stupid Finder would hurt Fringe’s ratings too. If the Finder can’t find it’s own viewers, how is it supposed to help Fringe?

  • Dennis

    @and you wana bet on that? Its coming back :)

  • karma

    they promised us a Peter season!
    He missed the first 4 episodes then these 2 and basically he has been a periphery figure the rest of the season. What a f****** joke to fans who actually like his character! Fringe goes for mediocrety and succeeds time and time again.

    a lot of joshua jackson/peter fans have stopped watching.

    you would be amazed how many fans he has.

  • Lizzie

    Please Fox, announce the show’s fate already.
    This tension is killing me!!

  • Todd

    The 0.9 doesnt matter. Fox and WB already have an agreement in place for a 13 episode season 5.

  • Were

    Oh haters, I will love mocking you when Fringe is renewed once again :D

  • and

    @Dennis — No it isn’t.
