Battle of the Network Stars: #Glee v #Modern Family


All eyes on Glee tonight, one of the most anticipated shows of the season, which debuts on Fox at 9pm (9.9 @ 9).  And W 9.23, in the same time slot, ABC debuts the other most anticipated show of the season, Modern Family. What surprises me is the history between the network programming executive of one and the showrunner of the other.  Wouldn’t it be better if the two of them talked it out on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm instead of splitting the 12mm viewers up for grabs. Below is a quick overview of the primetime grid.  As we approach the NYTVF red carpet nights, more details will follow.  Til then, enjoy Glee!

*post note:  per LA Times, Glee won its time slot among its 18-49  demo with a 3.3 rating/9 share; off from the pilot’s performance in May which was seen by 9.6mm and drew a 3.9 rating among 18-49, per THRfeed.
