Yes, you heard correctly.
The cast of hit tv-show Glee have overtaken British superstars The Beatles in the ammount of entries held in the Billboard Hot 100. In total, the actors from Glee have had a total of 75 entries in the chart, four more than Lennon & co., with six new entries from the cast entering the chart in the latest run-down alone.
