Glee‘s tribute to Finn/the late Cory Monteith was watched by 7.4 million total viewers and netted a 2.8 rating on Thursday.

That marks week-to-week gains of 68 and 75 percent, tying Grey’s Anatomy during the 9 pm hour and marking the Fox series’ best demo number since Sept. 2012.

ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland could use some “Eat Me.” Debuting to 5.7 million viewers and a 1.7, it fell shy of Last Resort‘s year-ago launch (8 mil/1.9). ABC’s other recent-ish Thursday lead-off premiere numbers:
* Zero Hour: 6.3 mil, 1.4
* Charlie’s Angels: 8.8 mil, 2.1
* Missing: 10.6 mil, 2.1/>/>/>

Speaking of new Thursday fare, NBC’s got problems. Although plucky Parks and Rec held steady with a 1.2 rating, Welcome to the Family (0.8), Sean Saves the World (1.0) and The Michael J. Fox Show (1.2) all plunged more than 25 percent. Parenthood in turn closed the night with a 20-percent drop, to a 1.2.

Elsewhere….

THE CW | The Vampire Diaries (2.5 mil/1.1) ticked down just a tenth, while an (oxymoron alert!) Originals repeat did 1.9 mil/0.8 — pending any adjustments due to football preemptions.

CBS | The Big Bang Theory (17.2 mil/4.9) dipped 6 percent in the demo, The Millers (11.9 mil/3.1) ticked down two tenths, The Crazy Ones (10 mil/2.4) fell 16 percent and Two and a Half Men (9 mil/2.3) slipped one tenth. Elementary slipped to 9 mil/1.9.

ABC | Grey’s Anatomy‘s 200th episode drew 8.7 mil and a 2.8, down 10 percent opposite Glee‘s special episode. Scandal built on that to 9 mil/3.1, falling 14 percent from its premiere.

Much more to come….
