Fringe fell to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating in the first part of its two-part season finale. That's down a tenth vs. the 1.0 adults 18-49 rating last week. At 8pm, The Finder  had a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, also down a tenth vs. the 1.1 adults 18-49 rating last Friday. Blame The Avengers?

Via @MaskedScheduler:

#FRINGE .9 rating in 18-49's with 2,851,000 viewers. #FINDER was a 1.0 with 3,960,000 viewers. Season finales next week.

The night's full ratings.

    FRINGE is down only one tenth. Last week’s ratings was ajusted down to a 1.0

  • Tony

    Expected…… but glad it didn’t go below 0.9 like I thought it would

    @Tom, should have been fixed already, if you’re still seeing two tenths hit CTRL+R to refresh.

  • Liz

    Well that was obviously going to happen

  • Liz

    Does anyone know how the Avengers did? Did it break the record?
    I doubt it would ave tbh

  • Tom

    @Robert Thanks!

  • JJ Has the Juice

    It will go below a 0.9 next season- and stay there.

  • Tony

    @JJ no , no it wont

  • John A

    0.9 is awful. What will originals get next season? 0.6 i imagine

  • Mwatcher

    It doesn’t matter anymore re: ratings. Fringe will be renewed for one more season and end the way the creators want it to end.

  • KS

    Weekends are for watching movies, as long as we have DVR at homes why worry?

  • Tony


    it was already renewed for a final season :) Rejoice

  • chrisss

    @ John A

    The ratings will be awful, but the show will be awesome :)

  • Liz

    @KS well this weekend was definitly for the Avengers thats for sure, it made 70mill est. on Friday

  • John A

    Funny that the finder stayed steady in viewers. Nearly 4 million aint that bad. Pity it just couldnt be at 1.5 in demo and fox would probably renew it.

  • Greg

    Maybe Fox should air the final season of Fringe on saturdays.
