Glee Series Finale Ratings

Glee‘s two-hour swan song was heard by 2.6 million total viewers — up 30 percent week-to-week to deliver the Fox drama’s largest audience since April 8 — while averaging a 0.8 rating, ticking up to match its season high.

Because someone (or at least I) will wonder: Glee‘s official Season 1 launch drew 7.5 mil/3.5.

TVLine readers gave the series finale an average grade of “B+.”

Elsewhere on the night, as CBS’ NCAA tourney coverage averaged 3.8 mil and a 1.2:

NBC | Grimm returned to 4.9 mil and a 1.1, matching its month-ago tallies.
