'The Glee Project' premiere drew just 455,000 average viewers, while the 'Glee' finale, on the other hand, drew 12.5 million. While that's a considerable jump, Zach Woodlee, choreographer on both 'Glee' and 'The Glee Project,' told AOL TV today that he didn't think there was much panic over it.
"It's a different project and a different network," said Woodlee. "Plus we were up against the Tonys, which is a lot of the same fan base."
While die-hard Gleeks have a clear reason to tune in, Woodlee also noted that the show would appeal to fans of a different side of reality competition television.
"It's an interesting illumination of our pop culture right now where we're infatuated with singular talents. But on our show it's not just the best singer or the best dancer, it's the best everything," he told AOL TV. "Plus you get to see them working together as a unit, not just solo."
Bonus tidbit: Fans attending the New Jersey stop tomorrow will sense a little deja vu when they see the 'Glee' movie on the big screen later this summer -- Woodlee let it slip that they're filming tomorrow's performance for the 3D movie.
