"Fringe" fans who are dedicated enough to check the show's ratings every week may have gotten a bit of a scare last week, when the mid-season finale delivered the show's lowest ratings ever, dipping below 3 million viewers. It's particularly worrisome given that in Season 1, "Fringe" drew an average of 10 million viewers.(Shame on 7 million of you.
