The Oct. 14 episode of the freshman hit show garnered 7.5 million viewers (up from last week's overnight number of 7.3 million) and matched the previous week's 3.3 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Glee" built on the audience of its lead-in "So You Think You Can Dance," which had 7.1 million viewers and a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demo. The one-two punch of dance reality competition and singing filled comedy-drama put FOX on top in the 18-49 demographic for the evening, after tying CBS for two weeks running.
