The Super Bowl episode of "Glee" didn't result in many more viewers for Tuesday's regular episode of "Glee," which posted numbers pretty much in line with its season average. CBS led the night overall by a wide margin as NBC's lineup dipped from last week and ABC's dramas, while up slightly, didn't pose much of a threat.

CBS drew 16.4 million viewers and a 10.0 rating/16 share in households for the night to finish way ahead of No. 2 FOX (8.6 million, 5.1/8). NBC (7.3 million, 4.6/7) came in third. ABC's 5.4 million viewers and 3.3/5 was a slight improvement over last Tuesday's average, while The CW (1.7 million, 1.1/2) was off some compared to last week.

"Glee" did carry FOX to a win among adults 18-49 for the night. The network averaged a 3.4 rating in the demographic, edging CBS' 3.3. NBC took third with a 2.6, followed by ABC at 1.5. The CW posted a 0.7.
