Well, that sure didn’t take long.
Glee fans can break out into song, as the musical comedy is the first of the new fall shows to be picked up for a full season. An additional nine episodes will be filmed to give it 22 for the season.
So far the show has lived up to all the hype. It was the highest-rated premiere for a new Fox scripted show in three years.
"The response we've received to Glee has been remarkable. It's already got the makings of a cultural phenomenon," said Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly. "I've seen all 13 episodes, and [creator] Ryan Murphy, his team and the talented Glee cast have knocked our socks off with their incredible work. We're happy to pick up this gem of a show, and can't wait to see what they'll do with the rest of the season."
The competition will pick up this week with the series premieres of Modern Family and Cougar Town debut on ABC and the Criminal Minds returns on CBS. And with The Jay Leno Show occupying the 10 p.m. time slot, Law & Order: SVU is on an hour early, making your television-viewing options that much harder to choose from on Wednesday nights.
For those who have managed to avoid the abundance of commercials and advertisements for the show, we can sum it up: It's Grease meets Freaks and Geeks (whose cancellation we're still mourning).
What will you be watching on Wednesday’s at 9 p.m.? Glee, Law & Order SVU, Modern Family and Cougar Town or Criminal Minds? Chime in below!
