TV Ratings Report: A Gleeful Premiere?

at . Comments

The Glee Season 4 premiere features a new city, a new dance instructor, new New Directions and a new time slot.

But did the show return to its winning ways for Fox?

Remaining New Directions

For the most part, yes.

While its 8.1 million total viewers was a 12 percent drop from the Glee Season 3 premiere, that figure represents an 8 percent increase from the May finale.

Moreover, Glee built on its X Factor lead-in among 18-49-year olds and matched the Bones Season 7 premiere numbers from a year ago.

Elsewhere, the America's Got Talent season finale won the evening overall with 10.5 million viewers, although this was a drop from last summer's finale.
