(CBS News) For the second consecutive week, an "American Idol" alum has topped the Billboard charts with a new album.

The season eight runner-up, Adam Lambert, pushed Carrie Underwood, the fourth-season winner, off the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart on Wednesday with his second studio album, "Trespassing." It is the first time he scored a No. 1 spot.

"Trespassing" sold 77,000 copies in its first week to top Underwood's "Blown Away" which sold 267,000 copies in its debut two weeks ago.

"Blown Away" fell to No. 3, with Adele's "21," adding to its already formidable sales record.

Comedy rockers Tenacious D - actors Jack Black and Kyle Gass - took the fourth spot with their third studio album "Rize of the Fenix," and Norah Jones' "Little Broken Hearts" held on to its No. 5 slot.

"Glee" made its poorest debut yet with the "Graduation Album" for the Fox hit show coming in at No. 8 on the charts.

Lambert is the seventh "Idol" alum to top the Billboard charts. The others are Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken, Chris Daughtry and Scotty McCreery. A new"Idol," Phillip Phillips, was crowned on the season finaleof the Fox hit show Wednesday night.
