ABC's Modern Family, Fox's Glee and HBO's In Treatment were among Wednesday's 36 Peabody Award winners, which included the usual strong array of public-affairs programming. "Our selections demonstrate that great work available in 2009 varied widely and appealed to viewers and listeners with very different tastes, interests and concerns," said Horace Newcomb, director of the Peabody Awards, said in announcing the awards. Other notable winners include HBO's The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, CBS' The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (featuring a guest appearance by Archbishop Desmond Tutu) and two reports by Steve Kroft, "Sabotaging the System" and "The Cost of Dying," which aired on CBS' 60 Minutes Thrilla in Manila, an HBO documentary about the last of three legendary heavyweight bouts between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier that pulled no punches about their rivalry, also was cited.

We already knew that the Glee kids would be tackling Lady Gaga in their back nine episodes, set to begin airing on Fox April 13. But now we actually can tell you which Gaga tunes to get the choral overhaul: âBad Romanceâ and âPoker Face.â The latter of the pair will be tackled by Lea Micheleâs Rachel. Says creator Ryan Murphy, âLeah does a very stripped-down version of âPoker Face.ââ Meanwhile, âRomanceâ sounds like a much more elaborate number, with the glee club actually donning Gaga-esque wardrobe for the performance. âI do know that weâre all different Lady Gagas, and at one point I am the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga,â says Michele, referring to this crazy ensemble worn by the pop star. âI saw a picture of the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga with a Post-It on it that said âLeah.â I was like, oh, great. Everyone else has incredible Lady Gaga outfits and I have that one.â And it sounds like producers are making sure the costumes are up to par with the real Gagaâs eccentric wardrobe choices. Says Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt, âThe outfits are gonna be incredible. All the costumes are outrageous and legit. I actually went to the tailor this morning who makes the real Gaga outfits. Theyâre going all-out.â Are you excited, Music Mix-ers? Did the Glee producers pick the right Gaga songs? What would you have chosen? Source Here

Surely you've seen these two new Glee promos over the past few days? Promo number one (that's the one above this paragraph) gives us a sneak peek at the first new Glee episode, "Hello", which airs April 13. So that's why there's a lot of songs with the word "hello" on it--it's part of Will's lesson to the kids! But the most important person we'll be saying hello to is Sue, who returns to McKinley High because... of sexual blackmail. With Principal Figgins. Thus, the photo up there. (Click here to see Jane Lynch's interview with TVGuide.com about the whole debacle.) To Read More Click Here .
Glee returns April 13 with more songs, drama and Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) than ever. Check out two new promos for the Golden Globe-winning show below, which include songs from the first episode to return, "Hello," and a little taste of "The Power of Madonna" episode. Source & Video
The latest "Glee" promo is showered with new footage including the first listen of Lea Michele tackling Madonna's "Like a Prayer". The show returns on April 13 with episode "Hello" which will include a lot of songs with the syllables on the title and continue on April 20 with a Madonna-centric episode called "The Power of Madonna". The video is in fact full of firsts. Fans get the first glimpse of Will and Emma making out on the couch although Emma admits she's uncomfortable getting intimate on the couch where Will "made a fake baby" with his estranged wife Terri. There's also the first look of Rachel's possible new love interest, Jesse St. James, who is played by Jonathan Groff. Jesse challenged Finn for a sing off in the parking lot. "Idina Menzel [plays] the coach of Vocal Adrenaline, and I'm the lead singer," Groff explained about his role in an interview. "I meet Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry, in the first episode [in April] and we sort of have an immediate connection. I want to be a star just as much as she does. ... Her character hasn't met anyone like that yet, so it's an interesting chemistry." Sue meanwhile remains to be the show's attraction with her sharp tongue. She told Will, "Wow, I just lost my train of thought, you have so much margarine in your hair" and odd couple Mercedes and Kurt "How do you two not have a show on Bravo?" Source & Promo
Actress Lea Michele almost missed out on her starring role in U.S. TV show "Glee" after she was involved in an horrific car accident on the way to her audition. The 23-year-old plays wannabe actress Rachel Berry in the popular musical comedy, which is based around an all-singing, all-dancing choir at a fictional Ohio high school. But on her way to a callback from producers, Michele found herself embroiled in a nasty collision - and racing to get to the audition in time. She says, "I had three auditions; the first time, the piano player messed up and they were laughing at me. I was like, 'Why are you laughing? This is supposed to be a serious scene.' But it turned out I was doing a lot of things very much like Rachel Berry." "For my second audition I got into a massive car wreck, left my crashed car in the street and ran into the audition with cuts and glass in my hair. And then on the final audition, I had the worst neck ache from the car accident, but I'm here now." Source Here
