Ratings Game: No Surprise, Glee Wins Tuesday Nights

Raising Hope
Last year's top new program, Glee, is expected to do well with its return, especially since all summer long, the show hasn't been really out of the radar. I've said this once before --- it's like every week, I get to read a news blurb about Glee or its stars, while the series is supposedly in hiatus. Guess that marketing pulled off. Glee's second season succeeds and earns with their biggest rating ever. That's even without American Idol to carry the show along.

As for the rest of the program, new comer, Raising Hope, had promising results. The show is worth checking out, indeed. Last year's most watched program, NCIS, did alright too. But I am not happy for Life Unexpected.....tick, tock, tick, tock!
