Fox Happy With Glee for Rest of Season

After just two original telecasts (the preview last May and the series-premiere last week), Fox has picked up one-hour musical comedy Glee for the remainder of the season, with an order for nine additional telecasts. 

Glee returned in the Wednesday 9 p.m. hour last week with 6.69 million viewers (No. 3 in the time period) and a second-place 3.2 rating/9 share among adults 18-49 on Sept. 17, according to the live-plus-same-day nationals. 

That built from the fall launch of competition So You Think You Can Dance (Viewers: 5.67 million; A18-49: 2.4/ 7 at 8 p.m.) by 1.02 million viewers and 33 percent in the demo.
