Fox's one-two punch of American Idol and Glee led the network to another Tuesday night ratings win.
The Madonna-themed episode of Glee expressed itself to 13.5 million viewers and was the night's highest-rated scripted series among the adults-18-to-49 demographic. The show only lost 5 percent in the demo compared to its record-setting return last week, and it did it following a weaker American Idol (19.1 million viewers), which was down 8 percent from the previous week...
This week's episode of Glee draws inspiration from Madonna, using several of the pop idol's hits strewn throughout the story. From the virginal glee club members deciding whether or not to give it up, to the gals feeling disrespected by the guys, the episode tackles classic high school problems, while maintaining its comedic touch. So why is Glee doing a Madonna-centric episode? We'll let Sue Sylvester answer that one for you:
The top 7 singers took the American Idol stage to sing inspirational songs; as Simon Cowell repeatedly pointed out, though, many renditions were uninspired. While no singer was just awful, one contestant in particular stole the night, and probably most of the hearts of viewers. So how did it all shake out?

Although Garcia wowed the judges during Hollywood Week with an acoustic cover of Paula Abdul's "Straight Up," he never seemed to find that same spark in his subsequent performances. Garcia says the advice of the judges — who seemed to always compare everything to the Abdul cover — wasn't making it any easier.
"I was just confused," Garcia tells TVGuide.com...
Wilson's ex-wife returns as his new girlfriend, and House tries to sabotage their relationship
Wilson's ex-wife returns to his life as his new girlfriend, and House is less than thrilled about it. Meanwhile, House and the doctors visit a Renaissance village after one of its knights in shining armor suffers a mysterious seizure.
Following a medieval swordfight in a Renaissance village, a knight named William is victorious in his battle. But when the queen comes to congratulate him, his eyes begin to hemorrhage and he passes out. The fictional world comes to a halt as an ambulance is called and William is brought to Princeton-Plainsboro.
As the hour opens, Jack is a complete mess, and understandably so — he just saw Renee shot to death and is now wandering around the ER wearing a shirt stained with her blood. Thankfully, one of the doctors takes the initiative to grab him a new shirt and a pair of boots for his bare feet.
Once Chloe calls to offer her condolences, though, Jack snaps back into being Jack, demanding to see the recently MIA Papa Bazhaev, who is currently CTU's only lead. Chloe isn't quite so willing to circumvent the official channels and processes now that she's running CTU, but she ultimately relents and tells Jack where Bazhaev's bail hearing is being held (which, unsurprisingly, he's denied).
