Oops... she did it again!

Britney's guest spot on Glee has given the series it's highest ratings of all time. It has also given Fox it's highest rating in 17 years (18-49 ratings).

Britney Spears' 'Glee' Sets Series Record

13.3 million viewers tuned in Tuesday night up 4 percent from its premiere last week.

ABC's "No Ordinary Family" got off to an impressively strong start Tuesday night while Fox's "Glee" rose in the ratings to a series high thanks to its eagerly anticipated tribute to Britney Spears.

"Glee" drew 13.3 million viewers and a 5.8 preliminary adults 18-49 rating -- dominating the night, rising 4% from its mammoth premiere last week and scoring the pop-drama's biggest rating ever (yes, higher than the show's Madonna-themed episode).

"Glee" led into the second episodes of "Raising Hope" (7.5 million, 3.2), which climbed a tenth of a point, and "Running Wilde" (4.7 million, 2.1), which widened the gap between the comedies, falling 13%.

Here's interesting factoid about "Glee" from the Fox ratings department: "This is the first time in 17 years that the highest-rated entertainment program of premiere week grew in Week 2 among adults 18-49 and total viewers (since Fall '93, 'Seinfeld')."

"No Ordinary Family" (10.5 million, 3.1) is ABC's biggest new series premiere this season and performed well airing against stiff competition from "Glee."

Fox won the night. CBS was next, with the second rounds of "NCIS" (18.7 million, 4.0) and "NCIS: LA" (16.4 million, 3.7) demonstrating the sort of stability that CBS dramas are known for. "NCIS" was flat with last week's debut, while "LA" improved 9%. The second season premiere of "The Good Wife" (12.9 million, 2.5), however, slipped 19% from last year.

ABC ranked third, with "No Ordinary Family" leading into "Dancing With the Stars" results show (3.7), dropping 16%. The second week of "Detroit 1-8-7" (9.2 million, 2.2) was down a tenth.

NBC had "The Biggest Loser" (2.7), down 7%. At 10 p.m., "Parenthood" (4.8 million, 2.0) is on a worrisome trend, falling 20% to a series low.

The CW aired "One Tree Hill" (1.8 million, 0.9), on par with last week, and "Life Unexpected" (1.6 million, 0.8), rising slightly.
