Last night Fox aired the AMAZING Britney Spears Episode of Glee titled Britney/Brittany and managed to set a new series ratings record. Britney/Brittany managed to pull in more than 13 million viewers and became the show’s highest rated episode ever!
ABC’s “No Ordinary Family” got off to an impressively strong start Tuesday night while Fox’s “Glee” rose in the ratings to a series high thanks to its eagerly anticipated tribute to Britney Spears. “Glee” drew 13.3 million viewers and a 5.8 preliminary adults 18-49 rating — dominating the night, rising 4% from its mammoth premiere last week and scoring the pop-drama’s biggest rating ever (yes, higher than the show’s Madonna-themed episode) … Here’s interesting factoid about “Glee” from the Fox ratings department: “This is the first time in 17 years that the highest-rated entertainment program of premiere week grew in Week 2 among adults 18-49 and total viewers (since Fall ’93, ‘Seinfeld’)” … Fox won the night.
Folks … that is the power of a Living Legend. Congrats all around. As those among the 13.3 million of you who watched Glee last night already know, our dear Britney Spears made 3 different cameos thruout the episode:
She appeared in the hallucinated performances of her hit songs Me Against the Music, Baby One More Time and Stronger. After the jump, check out video of Britney’s brief but memorable cameos on Glee last night …
Bow down to the Queen, y’all. Personally, I loved her cameo in Baby One More Time the most even tho she had more lines in the Stronger cameo … but overall, I loved the ep entirely. Yes, there were some cheesy bits but it was a fun ep that paid homage to Britney is a very cool, very fun way. My guess is that Britney will have a much larger role the next time she appears in Glee … and that ep is likely to score even higher ratings than last night’s ep did. What did y’all think? Did yo love it as much as I did? How amazing was it to see Britney honored in such a fun way? LOVED IT ALL!!!
