Britney Spears on "Glee" attracts 13.5 million people
[This blog post has been updated with final national ratings]
After weeks of hyperventilation, about 13.5 million people caught the OMG It's Britney Spears Episode of Fox's "Glee" Tuesday night.
It was the show's second largest audience ever -- just shy of the show's all-time biggest audience of 13.7 million. But that episode had aired immediately after "American Idol" and was "Glee's" much ballyhooed return after a four-month hiatus.
Yes, you say, but Tuesday's episode had Brit Brit! It's true - but not much. Britney was only seen on screen for about 30 seconds of the show, because she was super-busy with....well, we actually don't know what, come to think of it. The episode did, however, include five Britney tunes
The Brit Brit "Glee" episode attracted a lot more viewers than had the show's season debut, one week earlier. That episode clocked 12.5 million viewers according to Nielsen stats.
Next week's episode: McKinley High football hero/glee club hunk Finn thinks he sees Jesus's face in his grilled cheese sandwich.
