Glee Gets Eve-ntful with Guest-Star Eve

In this Wednesday's episode of Glee (9/8c on Fox), New Directions finally meets some of the competition for sectionals: Jane Adams Academy, led by Grace Hitchens (guest-star Eve). The rapper-actress took a few minutes from her tour in Dubai - her fourth album "Flirt" drops later this year - to dish on her guest stint, including the plot to take down the McKinley High glee club. Working as a glee club coach from a competing reform school, "she gets approached about trying to get rid of the glee club at the school," Eve said. "You see her take these girls to the school and they do this 'Bootylicious' number, which blows the competition away. When you see this number, you're going to die. It's one of those things where you're like, 'How can they make this happen?' but it's also hilarious at the same time." Grace's tactics are far different than those of Will (Matthew Morrison). "For me especially, I come from a harder place" she said. "I'm the teacher of a reform school. I'm used to being very strict." Originally, songstress Whitney Houston was going to guest star in this role. "I would've loved to watch that myself," Eve said. "I think it would've been different in a sense because she's an original diva. She would've brought a whole other energy, which would've been amazing." Unfortunately, Eve won't be singing during the episode. "It was really fun to sit back and watch everyone else sing," she said. "If there was another episode and I could come back, it would be amazing if I could sing." What's her ideal song if she returns to the show? "Sweet Dreams," by The Eurythmics, she said. "That's like my karaoke go-to song." With the news that fellow Glee guest-star Kristin Chenoweth will return to the show, might Eve be lured back as well? "If I'm asked to do it, I definitely would," she said. "It's just a really well-made, smart show." Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List: Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009 - Featured

* Criminal Minds (9/8c CBS) Since the return of George Foyet (C. Thomas Howell), the infamous serial killer known as the Reaper, Hotch has known that not only will more people die, but he and his family will be in danger as long as Foyet is alive. Tonight the conflict between the two men comes to a conclusion as the team helps Hotch close in on the notorious psychopath. * The Biggest Loser : Where Are They Now? (8/7c NBC) The Biggest Loser crew catches up with contestants from the past seven seasons tonight to see what life is like after the cameras stop rolling. The special highlights how the former players look now and the major milestones they have achieved since graduating from the show. It also illustrates what some are doing to "pay it forward" after their life-changing experiences on the ranch. But it wouldn't be The Biggest Loser without a twist, so Bob and Jillian drop in unexpectedly on a few contestants for a surprise visit. * Glee (9/8c Fox) Actual competition is getting closer (the Dec. 9 fall finale is titled "Sectionals") and November sweeps are winding down, so expect a sharper focus and guest stars tonight. The focus: The kids see some flashy competition. The guest stars: Eve plays the competition's instructor and 2008 So You Think You Can Dance alums Katee Shean, Kherington Payne and Comfort Fedoke play performers. Meanwhile, Kurt might be joining what would become a romantic "pentagon." That's a lot of love geometry. * Cougar Town (9:30/8:30c ABC) Thanksgiving came a little early last week when Travis' sleight of hand about his sexuality made a turkey out of Grayson. Tonight the holiday has finally arrived, and Jules is delighted to have everyone at her house for dinner. But Travis may not be so grateful - in fact, he may even call fowl - when he introduces his new girlfriend, and his mom winds up serving a lesson about the birds and the bees. * The Beatles on Record (10/9c History) Given the breadth of the Beatles' body of work and the depth of their influence on pop culture, there will probably never be a time when interest in the band wanes. In any event, 2009 isn't the year: More than 2.25 million copies of their re-mastered CDs were sold the first week of their September release. So whether you're a baby-boomer fan or a younger one, this documentary is a welcome retrospective, as it chronicles the Beatles' recording process from Please Please Me in 1963 to Abbey Road in 1969. It features rare footage, recordings of studio conversations and narration from all four Beatles, plus producer George Martin. Source Here

FOX Announces Midseason Premiere Dates; Glee to Take a 4 Month Hiatus - Featured

From TV Guide: American Idol and 24 will return just days apart in January, Fox announced Tuesday in unveiling its midseason schedule. Idol's ninth season - the first with Ellen DeGeneres taking over Paula Abdul's seat at the judging table - will premiere Tuesday, Jan. 12 and Wednesday, Jan. 13 at 8/7c. Wednesday's first Idol episode will be followed by the series premiere of the new reality show "Our Little Genius." The quiz show will then move to Tuesdays at 9/8c the following week. As previously announced, 24 will return for a two-night premiere on Sunday, Jan. 17 at 9/8c and Monday, Jan. 18 at 8/7c before it replaces Lie to Me at Mondays at 9/8c for the rest of its run. However, Fox announced it has picked up the lie-detecting drama for the rest of its second season and the show will return sometime in the spring. Lie to Me isn't the only show fans will have to part with, at least temporarily. Freshman hit Glee will take a four-month-long vacation following the show's Dec. 9 winter finale. The musical dramedy will move to Tuesdays at 9/8c when it returns April 13. Glee's extended break is at least partly due to its shooting schedule, which won't resume until January.

'Glee' Sneak Peeks, From This Week All The Way To Sectionals

While we wait for photos from sectionals--it should come soon--here are a handful of tidbits from the Glee front, specifically about this Wednesday's episode, "Hairography". In case you haven't seen the video clips yesterday, here's the link. And now, more text! Yay! First up, the folks at Entertainment Weekly have another teaser clip from this week's episode, and while it's not a full scene--there's a quick interview with Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer that's pretty hilarious--you can spot the glee kids from Jane Adams Reform School for Girls, headed by Grace Hitchens (guest star Eve), perform "Bootylicious". Here's the link, since we can't embed it. There's a reason why both these two won't be able to have children after the performance, or so they claim. I can only guess it's the three So You Think You Can Dance contestants who are part of the group. To Read More Click Here .

'Glee' Video Sneak Peek: Was Quinn Singing to the Triplets, Or To Puck?

Thanksgiving's just around the corner, but no, Glee won't be off the air like almost everybody else. Thank heavens. I don't think we'd be able to cope with yet another interruption in episodes. Anyway, we've got a couple more sneak peeks from Wednesday night's episode, again courtesy of the folks at E! Online. This episode, by the way, is the one featuring rapper Eve as the head of the glee club for that school for female juvenile delinquents, which happens to be one of the teams New Directions goes up against in sectionals. They also happen to be, possibly, one of the teams to who Sue leaked their set list to. Oh, evil, evil Sue. And that's where video number one starts: Will giving Grace Hitchens a visit and ending up offering her McKinley High's auditorium as rehearsal space. A scrimmage, as he puts it. Source & Preview
