After a four-month hiatus from the airwaves, Glee returned to the Fox schedule last night amid a flood of publicity and attracted 13.6 million viewers, according to preliminary returns.

“Everybody thought Fox was crazy to have the Sectionals in December and then pull it off the air for four months,” show creator Ryan Murphy told Entertainment Weekly. “They got a lot of criticism for it, but (the ratings) prove that it was a great plan. It really worked. In those four months we won the Golden Globe and a Peabody, and with the Oprah/White House effect, it became a perfect storm to get people really excited about the show.”

The ratings were 50 percent higher than the show’s one-episode preview last May and managed to hold on to an impressive 77 percent of its American Idol lead in.
