Latest Upsetting 'Glee' News Means It's Definitely Time for a Change

TV Addict 28

Glee Lady Gaga/ Katy Perry EpisodeThere's nothing like a good Lady Gaga ballad to get the kids at McKinley High fired up on Glee. On last week's episode, "A Katy or a Gaga," the cast took on hits like Gaga's "Applause" and "Marry the Night" as well as Katy Perry's songs "Roar" and "Wide Awake." But even with the extra oomph of these two female pop superstars, it seems Glee is struggling this season. Glee's ratings fell to tie the show's all-time low, with only four million viewers. Ugh, how upsetting.

What's even worse? "A Katy or a Gaga" had 46 percent less viewers than the Cory Monteith tribute episode. Could Glee without Cory Monteith be doomed? I wouldn't go that far, but it's definitely time for a change.

The good news? Rumors of change are everywhere. We've heard that Glee could be moving to New York City entirely (very, very soon) and that Lea Michele may be getting a spinoff of her own. I think this ratings drop shows how critical some sort of mix-up really is for the show, which is set to end after season 6 as it is.

Plain and simple: Fans are still mourning the loss of one of the show's greatest characters, and now they're looking for something new -- something to help them move on. Bring on the Big Apple, I say. Because I don't know about all of you, but I just wanna hear Lea Michele belt out some hits.

Would you want to see the Glee writers drop McKinley altogether?

They really shouldn't have put it at the same time as greys anatomy. More people might have watched it if it wasnt competing with so many other shows in that hour.

The show just feels weird without Cory Monteith. Plus, the new characters are not very interesting. I think it would be a good idea to focus solely on New York, as long as Blaine goes there too :)

It is hard to say how much of a dramatic change could affect the ratings. Some of the loyal gleeks out there may stop watching the show if the plot changes too much.

Rachel Strauss

I don't want any more lea! I stopped watching when she "graduated" and STILL was a major plot point. She graduated! MOVE ON! She should have just had a spin off and not continued on Glee.

A lot of people who had stopped watching Glee tuned in for the tribute episode, then went back to not watching.  So the 'fall' isn't as dramatic as it seems.  


Glee does need to change things up, and I think moving to NY and dropping the high school is just what the show needs.


Glee became popular because it was about underdogs who were struggling for their places in the world.  It's not that show any more.  The 2.0 can pretend to be 'uncool' all they want, but when such beautiful people are cast it's hard to feel for any of their problems.  The writing for all of the new cast is just terrible.  The actors are good, but they aren't being given any good story lines to work with.


All the 2.0s get a small story line, that seems to be a reworking of a story line that's been done already.  And it's all over in one episode.  There is nothing to care about with them.   Going to NY with the original cast is the only thing that could save the show.

I honestly think people are finding other shows to watch. Because of Cory's passing they started shooting late which pushed back the start date for the season. Then there were only 3 episodes before they took a break for the World Series. And being aired at the same time as Grey's isn't helping! Thankfully I have DVR, but some people don't!!

They could always try having plots again instead of just plucking an artist's songbook randomly out of a bin and voila! Show is written!

I quit watching the Kurt and Rachel show errr I mean Glee after 2 seasons, but I tuned in for the Cory tribute episode. I don't think anything the Glee creators are willing to do would get me to watch it again. I'd rather watch Full House reruns for the 100 millionth time.
