    Those are not the correct ratings for Glee or Idol…

    How good exactly Glee performed?

    By the way, I’m little lost – will this show air during summer, fall … ? It seems to good for this time of year …

    B, According to my source, MediaWeek, they’re correct:

    GLEE got a one night preview to attract the audience comes with IDOL, the show will return in September along with the rest of FOX’s Fall Sked. As for performance, I think it did as well as could be expected, anyone who thought that GLEE would hold onto all of IDOL’s audience hasn’t been paying attention. Just ask ABC how much of an audience CASTLE held from it’s DANCING WITH THE STARS lead in.

  • Matej

    Agree and thanks, now it makes much more sense

  • B

    It looks like you took the first half hour of each show, not the complete one-hour average–Idol did an 8.3/24 and Glee did a 4.3/11.
