School is certainly back in session for the FOX network, as the freshman musical comedy Glee earned top ratings for its season premiere Wednesday.
According to ratings reports released Thursday, the overnight smash ensemble comedy drew 7.1 million viewers and trumped the night's usual ratings leader, NBC's America's Got Talent.
Chronicling the lives of a group of misfit students at Ohio's fictional McKinley High School, Glee's cast includes theater vets Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison.
Get Morrison's take on the series here in an exclusive Usmagazine.com video interview.
FOX led into the new series with the fall return of So You Think You Can Dance. The network's programming was aired against President Obama's healthcare address, which brought in 21 million viewers across the big three networks -- NBC, CBS and ABC -- per TVNewser.
