Music Supervisors for 'Glee,' 'Book of Life,' 'Begin Again' Lead Guild Nominations

'Glee' (2009-2015)

The onetime-phenomenon still has a season left, but the show is definitely not going out on a high note. The Ryan Murphy-created series, which averaged 12.45 million viewers in season two, repeatedly hit all-time ratings lows last season, when it averaged a paltry 5.06 million watchers.
