So recently a new TV show has come on the air called Glee. Glee mixes together a story line of a high school glee club with a musical feeling. Many didn't think this show would succeed, but not only are the ratings up, the songs themselves sell well on iTunes. Glee draws in 7.8 million viewers per week. I think it is key for artists featured on this show to see how possibly there record sales can increase by being associated with new hit show. Many artists also would gain greater exposure by allowing their songs to be featured on this show. The show has a great draw, and a variety of fans. I think this is the perfect opportunity for artists to mix TV with their music. The actors featured on the show also all have 36o deals with Columbia, and are creating buzz for themselves in the music industry as well. It will be interesting to see the next steps Glee will take after the first soundtrack release on Nov. 3. I can see a tour in the works already, with countless opportunities for merchandise.
