Tuesday night’s controversial episode of Glee was a non-factor in the ratings. The episode featured two teen couples, one straight and one gay, having sex for the first time. Only 6.9 million viewers tuned in, which made it the lowest-rated episode of Glee this season.
The season premiere attracted 9.2 million viewers in September, but each of the four episodes since then have declined in the ratings. Last week’s episode had 7.5 million viewers. Glee did win its timeslot among female viewers between the ages of 12 and 24.
