Of course the Super Bowl (and the post game coverage) led all telecasts for the week in primetime - it was the most-watched telecast in U.S. TV history!

With the big Super Bowl lead-in Glee was easily the top scripted show of the week with adults 18-49 and total viewers of the week.  And while Glee's 11.1 rating with adults 18-49 easily dwarfed NCIS's 4.6, Glee needed a huge lead-in to score its 26.8 million viewers. All the more impressive that NCIS scored nearly 23 million viewers without any lead-in.
