With "Glee" it goes further downhill. After the musical series had already dropped to a season low last week, the number of viewers this week went down further (8.6 million viewers - 18-49 year olds: 3.4 rating / 9 share). The extended sitcom "Raising Hope" then returned from a break and also fell to a season low (4.5 million viewers - 18-49 year olds: 1.8 rating / 4 share).

One reason for the poor performance of the Fox series could be the good start to the talent show "The Voice". The NBC show with Christina Aguilera in the jury achieved excellent 5.1 rating points (13 shares) in the advertising-relevant target group and thus proves that the hunger of Americans for talent competitions on television has not yet been satisfied. Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan also had to accept slight losses in the target group with "Body Of Proof" (18-49 year olds: 2.2 rating / 6 share), but were at least able to look forward to a slight increase in the total audience (11.9 million viewers). The series has now stabilized at a good level and with ABC's flagging program will hardly have any problems with an extension.
