The Glee Cast Is Now Bigger Than the Beatles

When Chris Colfer sang "I Want to Hold Your Hand" on last night's Glee, was he secretly throwing down the gauntlet? According to Billboard, the cast of the Fox juggernaut just surpassed the Beatles for the most "Hot 100" appearances by a group in the chart's 52-year history, and with their 75 hits so far, they're bound to overtake even solo chart-topper Elvis Presley before the end of season two. Naturally, there are two different ways of interpreting this data: The Glee figures come mostly from downloads and those totally shouldn't count waah waah unfair, or the Glee cast is now, by extension, bigger than Jesus.
