Charice Effect on Glee Ripples of Oprah Effect?

Charice’s debut on Glee last Tuesday was impressive as it turned heads and raised eyebrows for those who don’t know the Filipina singer. Well, unless you’ve been following this young pint-sized singer from the Philippines on Oprah a few years back. Charice has been a regular guest of the Oprah Show the last 2 years, appearing five times. Her latest was when Charice launched her debut album ‘Pyramid’ last May. Oprah who later on became her god-mother named Charice as “the most talented girl in the world.”

CNBC ran an episode of the so called Oprah Effect a year ago, about Oprah’s cunning ability to persuade millions of her audience and her ability to brand unknown products and companies from no names to brand names. A little mention of your soap, lotion or CD on the Oprah Show can make a huge impact that converts into a fortune. Let’s go back to Charice.

How the Oprah Effect rippled to Charice Effect on Glee?

The buzz on Charice in the internet seems endless after her appearance on the Fox musical show Glee.

Broadway.com conducted a Glee Poll on the favorite season two new cast additions on the show Glee. The result was Sunshine Corazon (Charice) as the favorite new cast member, besting three others like Dustin Goolsby, Shannon Bieste and Sam Evans.

Entertainment Weekly conducted the same poll on their own and Charice as Sunshine Corazon emerged leading with 45.23% followed by Coach Beiste, Sam and Goolsby.

People.com conducted their own poll on “which song made you sing with Glee (Audition Episode)” and it turns out Listen sang by Sunshine was the number one choice so far followed by Empire State of Mind, Telephone, Billionaire and What I did For Love.

According to Billboard, Glee’s season two debut last Tuesday received 12.3 million total viewers, with 5.5 rating, the highest in preliminary adults 18-49 demographic.

Note: Glee season 2 debut was 20% up compared to the first season finale last June with 11.1 million viewers.

Glee’s five soundtracks featuring songs covered by the cast have sold 2.7 million to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The Glee show ranks No. 6 on Billboard’s Maximum Exposure list, up from No. 77 last year.

The numbers ain’t no joke. Glee is considered a powerhouse in comedy television. The genius direction of Ryan Murphy with the talented cast of Lea Michelle, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch and others, has received lots of accolades and awards in it’s debut season last year.

In the meantime, Charice has a strong base of followers even before joining the musical comedy show Glee.

Question: Is the 20% spike from the last season’s finale to it’s season two debut last Tuesday because of Charice?

Who knows? But one thing we’re sure of is Charice’s addition to the show added diversity and sure added a boost to the pop television phenomena Glee. Harry Shum, Jr as “Mike” on the Audition Episode calls it “We Asians are a very tight community.” when Rachel asked them how did they know that she sent Charice to the crack house.

Actually, the Oprah Effect has not only rippled to Charice’s impressive appearance on Glee but to her young music career in general. As Charice, 18, calls Oprah, her fairy god-mother who made her dreams come true.

Charice sings a blow-the-roof-off rendition of Beyoncé’s “Listen,” and “Glee” co-creator Brad Falchuk says the intercut reactions of the “Glee” cast to her performance were all real. “It was shock,” he says. “She’s 4 foot 2 and she can sing like that?

    There is no doubt in my mind what so ever that Charice caused that spike in Glee’s viewership with her appearance at the first episode of the second season of the show and her joining the Glee cast even just as a “recurring guest”.

    We were indeed lucky enough to experience the development of Charice from her initial exposures in the Philippines to where she stands right now in the global stage.

    Her life story has become one huge reality show that can be experienced in all entertainment mediums. From YouTube to TV Shows, Charice continue to give us the ultimate satisfaction of being serenaded by a true, down-to-earth Diva for a very long time.

      that makes the experience of this generation of Chasters unique, and it will be different from that of the next generation, not necessarily of age or demographics, but as defined by the phase in her career that one connected with her. Being with her from the beginning puts her every success and challenge in a unique perspective, with us cheering her all the way from the sidelines as our adopted sister, daughter or grand-daughter, and also as a personal champion.
