Glee returned from a long hiatus with the most-watched and highest-rated episode in the series' history. Glee drew 13.6 million viewers, retaining 78 percent of American Idol's audience (20.2 million viewers), according to Nielsen overnight estimates. The show also claimed its highest-ever rating among 18-to-49-year-olds and the highest Nielsen rating of any scripted freshman show this season, according to Fox. Additionally, the episode improved 44 percent over the post-Idol-finale preview last May. NBC placed a distant second in the demo behind Fox for the night, as The Biggest Loser (8.3 million viewers) improved 10 percent over last week in the demo. Parenthood (6.4 million viewers) remained strong against the encroaching Glee, dipping only slightly in the demo from the previous week. Nipping at NBC's heels was ABC. The Dancing with the Stars result show (13.4 million viewers) improved ever so slightly week-to-week, while Lost (9.5 million viewers) and V (5.9 million viewers) both slid down a notch. CBS placed fourth for the night with repeats of NCIS (10.8 million viewers), NCIS: Los Angeles (10.3 million viewers) and The Good Wife (7.9 million viewers). For the CW, 90210 pulled in 1.5 million viewers and Melrose Place's season (and perhaps series) finale drew 1.1 million viewers. Source Here
Next week's Madonna-centric episode of Glee brings out a different side of Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) as we learn she's a huge fan of the pop diva. "We find out her parents were famous Nazi hunters and she's very insecure about her hair," Lynch tells us. "She actually emulated Madonna so much as a kid that she bleached her hair platinum blond and it all fell out. She's been forced to wear short hair ever since, so she's actually pretty jealous of Will Schuester's illustrious locks." After Will makes a comment about Sue's short hair, Mercedes (Amber Riley) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) ease her pain by giving her a makeover, which leads to a re-enactment of the "Vogue" video.

Glee returns tonight with quite the shocker: Finn (Cory Monteith) and Rachel (Lea Michele) are breaking up! After 13 episodes of Rachel pining for Finn, their relationship is about to do a complete 180 when her attention turns elsewhere. "Rachel is a little busy right now because she's fallen in love with someone else," Michele says. "Rachel will always love Finn, but she's met her match right now with someone that she really likes who also really likes her." Meet Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff), the male lead for competing glee club Vocal Adrenaline. "He's her opposite in a sense," says Michele. "It's interesting to see her with a fair sparring partner." So how does Finn feel about Rachel's new man? "Finn has never dealt with another Alpha dog in the pack, so he really is struggling with how to handle that challenge," Monteith says. "He might throw up the dukes a little bit." Meanwhile, Finn will have dating issues of his own when Santana (Naya Rivera) pursues him... aggressively. To Read More Click Here .

* Glee (9:28/8:28c Fox) Sectionals was struggle enough, but that was four months ago; now it's on to Regionals and a likely season-finale showdown with "the evil empire of the show-choir world," Vocal Adrenaline. Tonight, you'll meet V.A.'s star, Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff, who costarred with Lea Michele in Broadway's "Spring Awakening"). So does Rachel, and they hit it off. But is he playing her? Meanwhile, Sue's back from Boca and ready to rumble. Numbers feature the words "hello" (the Beatles' "Hello, Goodbye") and "hell" (AC/DC's "Highway to Hell"). Idina Menzel plays Vocal Adrenaline's coach. * Dancing with the Stars (8/7c ABC) For the first time, the judges gave the contestant two scores last night - one based on the technical aspect and one based on the performance aspect of each dance. Of course, fans have their own criteria for voting, and we won't know who's going home tonight until those all-important fan votes are factored in. So far this season, each week has given us fresh faces in the bottom two, and that trend may continue. * Lost (9/8c ABC) Now that the uniquely talented Desmond is back on board (Is he really on Widmore's side?), it appears as if the "Lost" end times are ready to begin. What's next? That's what has Hurley, the star of this episode, in such a dither. Meanwhile, Ilana and her crew are heading for Hydra Island. Don't expect what happens when they get there to be pretty. Since this is a Hurley-centric episode, look for Libby (Cynthia Watros) and Hugo's mom (Lillian Hurst). And, as a bonus, you get Michael (Harold Perrineau), too. * Melrose Place (9/8c The CW ) We're still waiting for word on whether this woefully underrated reboot will get the green light for Season 2. In the meantime, the first season wraps up with the anticipated showdown between the fierce Amanda and the equally fierce Ella. When Ella is fired from WPK, she refuses to go down without a fight. Laura Leighton reprises her role as Sydney Andrews, but it's unclear if she'll appear in a flashback or if she's back from the dead. With Sydney, you can't rule anything out. * Deadliest Catch (9/8c Discovery Channel) If you've been left feeling crabby ever since your favorite fishing reality show took a break last year, get your claws on the remote and flip over to the Discovery Channel for tonight's sixth-season opener. Fans who follow the show know that the seasons kick off with an annual captains' meeting, but this one's dramatically different in that one skipper crosses the line, and we don't mean fishing line.

We already know that Glee will go Gaga this spring, while Rachel will give Finn Hell during the show's return episode on April 13. What else can fans expect from the second half of season one? In two words: Noah Puckerman. "[Mark Salling] has really taken the character and humanized it in a way that has given it a lot of dimension and made it really fun to write," producer Brad Falchuk said. "Mark has a lot of focused stories in the back nine. "He'll have plenty of moments because when you have talent like that that looks like that and can sing like that - he has a very easy movie star charm about him and an accessibility - you want to write towards that. Puck fans will get plenty of Puckerman." To Read More Click Here .
