TV Ratings Note for Thursday May 31, 2012 (Touch Season Finale)

Touch (FOX, Thursdays, 9pm ET)

4.61 million Overall Viewers (Hour 1)
1.3/5 in the 18-49 Demo

4.69 million Overall Viewers (Hour 2)
1.3/5 in the 18-49 Demo

The ratings for the Touch 2 hour season finale are in, and they are terrible.  Every canceled FOX show, outside of The Finder (doesn't really count since it was on Friday), had better finale ratings than Touch.  This can't bode well for its chances on Fridays, next season.  There was a sea of repeats, so there are no excuses, other than that people just don't seem to like the show anymore, and/or no one watches FOX after American Idol isn't on anymore.  I've fallen pretty far behind on the series, but intend to catch up soon.  However, based on the season finale's numbers, something must have happened to turn viewers off, or nearly all of the previous numbers were solely based on the American Idol lead in.  There are literally no other explanations, and neither one says anything good about the future of Touch.  Thanks for reading.
