Prior to Sunday's post-Super Bowl episode of Glee, there hadn't been a new episode of Glee since December 7, 2010.  That Episode scored a 4.4 adults 18-49 rating (and 11.07 million viewers).  Sunday night, after record-breaking viewing for Super Bowl XLV, Glee had an 11.1 adults 18-49 rating and 26.8 million viewers.  Will that exposure  result in some ratings boost tonight?

Raising Hope also hasn't aired an original since December 7.  Last time around it averaged a 2.8 rating and 6.915 million viewers. It did get a fair bit of promotion during the Super Bowl.

Traffic Light premieres tonight after Raising Hope.   I'm not sure how it will do, but it definitely needs to do better than the 1.7 adults 18-49 rating and 4.07 million viewers Running Wilde pulled on December 7.

Note:  those December 7 episodes aired against repeats on CBS,  and ABC ran the Charlie Brown Christmas special from 8p-9p (that pulled a 2.6 A18-49 rating, better than No Ordinary Family looks to do tonight) and No Ordinary Family at 9pm (that pulled a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating, likely in the ballpark of where 'V" will come in tonight).

Not sure of the best way to cram all that into a poll, but feel free to post your guesses in the comments. As far as Fox, my guesses that I wouldn't wager any money on for tonight are:

Glee: 4.6

Raising Hope: 2.7

Traffic Light: 2.1
