'Glee Project' canceled?

Has the fat lady sung for Oxygen’s Glee tie-in reality show? Not quite.

Yesterday, TVLine cited sources saying that the cable network “will likely be forced to postpone or scrap the next season of The Glee Project,” a talent competition that rewards one (or two, or four) amateurs with an arc on Glee. Since Glee itself hasn’t yet been renewed for a fifth season, the spin-off’s supposed fate wasn’t a shock.

But according to a spokesperson for Oxygen, The Glee Project may yet live to see another season. “What TVLine reported was speculation,” the rep told EW. “The Glee Project has not been canceled” — or, at least not yet. Given last year’s ratings, a renewal does seem less than likely: While the show’s first season drew up to 1.27 million viewers in 2011, its second managed just 821,000 at its peak — and four episodes of its 11-episode season failed to attract even 400,000 pairs of eyeballs.
