Fox’s "Glee" pulled in 7.136 million viewers in its fall season premiere with a 3.4/9 adults 18-49 in the ratings and a 3.7/10 with adults 18-34, according to TVbythenumbers.
Those figures stomped NBC’s "America’s Got Talent" in the demographics, even though it trailed in the total viewer numbers.
At 8 p.m., Fox brought back "So You Think You Can Dance" for a fall run, garnering a 2.7/8 in the 18-49 demo and a 3.0/9 in 18-34, with 6.5 million viewers.
Airing original programming against President Obama’s healthcare speech to Congress, Fox handily took the night in key demos in the overnight ratings.
However, 21 million people watched the president’s address on the Big Three networks, according to TVNewser: 8.2 million watched on NBC, 7.4 million watched on ABC and 5.6 million tuned in on CBS.
