Glee is not relatable to most ppl; poor recycled storylines; over rated B rated actors with a few exceptions; autotuned to death singing; unhealthy codependent teen relationships poorly performed by 30 year olds....This show needs to rest and end on the final episode.


Glad to see Glee is still hanging in there. This is a fun show. Hope it stays on for many more years to come.


i can't believe the cw is still playing the la complex..
stupid channel!


It's pretty sad that people judge glee without ever seeing it. It has an element to it that is missing from most television shows, it's fun, has a great storyline and haracters that are relatable for most people. Glad to see their ratings back up :)


It's pretty funny that the NCIS rerun still got more viewers than Glee.
