Who says there are too many singing shows?

NBC's "The Voice" returned for Season 2 with huge numbers after Sunday's Super Bowl, with a one-hour premiere that averaged 37.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen. Among viewers age 18 to 49, "The Voice" warbled to a 16.3 rating -- the highest since ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" drew a 16.5 after the Super Bowl in 2006.

Last year by comparison, with the Super Bowl on Fox, a special episode of "Glee" drew 26.8 million viewers.

NBC has done better in the past, however. The post-Super Bowl airing of "Friends" in 1996 averaged an amazing 52.9 million.
