In its fifth season premiere  Fringe was down from last year, earning a 1.1 18-49 rating vs. last season's 1.5 adults 18-49 premiere rating. Last year's season finale earned a 1.0 18-49 rating. Your predictions were about right

Via @MaskedScheduler:

1.1 rating in 18-49 with 3,176 viewers

The night's full ratings will be posted soon.

    Wanted it to be higher, but ah well, it’s the final season :)

    Oh dear oh dear, that is a very bad rating for Fringe. FOX shouldn’t be renewing unpopular shows like this, they should be giving new shows a chance. I bet any other show in that timeslot would get more viewers!!

    So down vs. last year, but up vs. the finale, so not too bad at all…

  • CrimTV


    Have you seen Fringe’s DVR numbers from last season? People just don’t watch it live but record it! You’ll see how much traffic this show has very soon….

  • John A

    I nailed it. Unfortunatley it will be below a 1.0 very soon.

    1.1 damn I was off by a tenth. Too Pessimistic I guess.

    It was up against new competition from all except CW’s Supernatural…

    Arguing about Fringe’s ratings now is stupid, silly and does not lead anywhere just be quiet and enjoy the last season.

    I don’t think it actually matters much. It would be nice to see it up of course, but at this point (and even though I like Fringe more than Grimm), Grimm needs the ratings much more than Fringe, so I don’t mind that Grimm’s ratings go up at the expense of Fringe.

  • John A

    Lol at people predicting 1.5

  • CrimTV


    Saw your comments on SpoilerTV just now lol! They claimed Fringe had a 1.3 which is obviously not true but said Grimm had a 2.0, let’s just wait and see but if that’s correct that’s great for NBC!

  • touch is dead

  • Colin

    The finale will be huge

  • Flare

    @Crim spoilertv 1.3 is for the top 25 areas
    1.1 is for whole country

  • CrimTV

  • danny94

    shame it wasnt higher but it doesnt really matter

  • Ricky

    Aww, too bad. On my first time watching Fringe live too! Cannot wait for the remaining twelve to air.

  • Jason

    It’s the final season,we won’t worry about the ratings any more..

  • NBC is awesome

    BOO, I was hoping for lower.


    I don’t care even if it gets 0.1! LOL! Its the final season! What’s important for me is to watch those last 13 episodes! YEAAAH!

    I was wrong, I predicted a 1.4, but then it in its final season.
