Specifically, Glee led the pack with a 4.2 rating (dipping 7 percent week-to-week), while playing to 10.46 million total viewers (down 9 percent).
Later in the night things weren’t nearly as gleeful for Fox, as the midseason comedy Traffic Light (3.57 million viewers/1.5 rating) plunged 21 percent from its premiere to fall below the season average of its ill-fated time slot predecessor, Running Wilde.
