Fleetwood Mac Re-enter Billboard Top 200 Chart with 2 Albums this week

For the sales week ending January 8, 2012 significant enough sales in the U.S. were achieved by two Fleetwood Mac albums to re-enter Billboard Magazine's Top 200 albums chart date Janaury 21, 2012.

The Rumours episode on GLEE that originally aired back in May, 2011 was re-broadcast in the US this past week on January 3rd... Surely this must be the cause for the sales surge.  In 2011, the album sold at total of 144,000 copies (thanks in large part to "Glee") -- way more than the 48,000 it tallied in 2010 or 66,000 in 2009.
