US Chart Roundup: 'Glee' Is A Flop In Season 3

Things remain pretty much the same on the Hot 100, as Adele's "Someone Like You" racks up a third week at #1. Dev's "In The Dark" is up to #11 and Alexandra Stan's "Mr. Saxobeat" is stuck at #26 again.

Meanwhile, those Glee songs are really flopping, aren't they? The cast's rendition of Coldplay's "Fix You," which has been the series' only Top 10 iTunes hit with Season 3, arrives at a disappointing #53. Elsewhere, "Girls (Who Run The World)" crashes and burns at #91. That said, Beyonce probably wishes she could land a chart position that high up these days.

Glee is three episodes into the third season (it's on a break until November due to baseball playoffs), but the show has progressively dropped in the ratings each week since it premiered in September.

It might help if the producers ditched the Broadway numbers — of which Glee has been heavy on lately — and started going back to hits the general public knows and can sing along with.

That, and they need to get a new storyline that doesn't seem like re-heated pussy on a stick.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Someone Like You" - Adele *3 weeks*
2. "Moves Like Jagger" - Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera
3. "Pumped Up Kicks" - Foster The People
4. "Sexy And I Know It" - LMFAO
5. "Stereo Hearts" - Gym Class Heroes feat. Adam Levine
6. "Party Rock Anthem" - LMFAO/Lauren Bennett/GoonRock
7. "We Found Love" - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
8. "Without You" - David Guetta feat. Usher
9. "You Make Me Feel..." - Cobra Starship feat. Sabi
10. "You And I" - Lady Gaga

    What killed Glee was not having them win the Nationals. People don't like watching shows about losers -- even if that is the concept behind the show.

    When New Directions didn't win, most of the viewers lost interest. They won't tune in again to be disappointed a third time. They lost in the first season and in the second. What did they expect?
