GLEE "Bust Your Windows" Performance Video

Check out an scene from Glee that Hulu.com has released. It features Mercedes Jones (Amber Riley) singing "Bust Your Windows" originally sung by Jazmine Sullivan. Now I love Glee and I can't wait to see new episodes this Fall, but I am a little worried that it is becoming a musical show, instead of a show in which there are musical numbers performed by the Glee club, which was pretty much what the first episode was. I personally wouldn't mind Glee becoming a musical since I am addicted to them, but I do know of a few people who would stop watching the show because of it. And since I want Glee to do good, I really hope they stick with the formula that made the first episode so popular. But for now enjoy the video below and don't forget to tune in to the Glee premiere this Fall on September 9 at 9pm on Fox. Check out an scene from GLEE that Hulu.com has released.

FOX Moves Up 'So You Think You Can Dance' and 'Glee's' Premiere Dates - Featured

Looks like you won't have to wait quite so long for the premieres of Fox's most anticipated fall shows: Glee and Season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance . The network announced this morning that their two big buzz shows will be premiering a week earlier than previously announced. Both shows will premiere Wednesday September 9th, with So You Think You Can Dance at it's usual 8:00pm time slot, followed by Glee at 9:00pm. This is great news for So You Think You Can Dance fans who are used to waiting almost a full year between seasons of their favorite show. With this new premiere date you'll barely have to go a month without new episodes of So You Think You Can Dance. Of course, it makes us feel a little bad for whoever wins this season, their reign as America's Favorite Dancer will be considerably shorter than every other winner. It's also happy news for those of us who've been eagerly awaiting more Glee since watching the sneak peek of the pilot after the American Idol finale back in May. Of course, since we've already seen the pilot, we have to wait until the following Wednesday September 16th to see a brand new episode, but we're not complaining. Glee's pilot is one that we'll be pleased, dare I say, gleeful to watch again and perhaps, sing along to. While So You Think You Can Dance and Glee's premiere dates were moved forward, Fox's obvious fall clunker, Brothers' premiere date was moved back. The show, which BuddyTV Senior Writer John Kubicek predicted would be the first Fall show canceled, will now debut on Friday September 25th at 8:00pm. Because, you know, a Friday night time slot doesn't already spell the kiss of death for most new shows. Might as well stamp FAIL on top of the logo and send it over to Fail Blog. 'Til Death's premiere date was also pushed back and relegated to a late Friday time slot. You'll see the did-they-really-renew-this-show-for-a-4th-season premiere Friday October 2nd at 8:30pm.

Comic-Con 2009: Glee Just Keeps Getting Better

Glee seemed like an unusual choice for San Diego Comic-Con International but according to all the fans at Saturday's panel, it was right where it belonged. One thing was clear: Glee is unlike anything we've ever seen on television before. The mixture of drama, comedy and musical is delightful and refreshing. The pilot episode, which premiered after the American Idol finale is slowly gaining more and more fans. If you haven't seen it, go check out the whole episode on Hulu. One of the series' greatest accomplishments has been the iTunes sales of the Glee music. By the end of season one, producers Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk promised up to 80 tracks. Luckily, they'll have plenty to choose from when they put together the original soundtrack around November. The packed full panel of fans, Joss Whedon included, were treated to the second episode titled "Showmance." The word crowd pleaser is an understatement. The audience went nuts, laughed hysterically and gave a raucous applause at the end. Songs by Rihanna and Kanye West added to the emotions and plights of the characters. For those of you who thought they humor fell flat in episode one, you must check out "Showmance" before you give up on Glee. The other major announcement, which I'm sure you've heard by now, is that the Glee cast will be going on a ten city tour to promote the new season. I suspect many fans will attend just to see Lea Michele, who had the most fans at Comic-Con due to her role in Spring Awakening. Source Here

Rapper Eve to Guest-Star on Glee

Eve has signed on for a guest-starring gig on Glee . The rapper will play the coach of a competing glee club for one episode. She joins previously announced guest stars Kristin Chenoweth, Victor Garber and Josh Groban. Though she's best known for her hip-hop stylings (watch the videos for "Let Me Blow Your Mind" and "Rich Girl", her addictive collaborations with Gwen Stefani) and paw-print tattoos, Eve has also done some acting. First off, she had a self-titled sitcom on UPN for three seasons. She co-starred with Vin Diesel in xXx and with Ice Cube in the Barbershop films. She'll also appear in Whip It!, Drew Barrymore's upcoming directorial debut about a roller-derby team, as a skating sensation named Rosa Sparks. Glee had a special preview of the first episode before the penultimate outing of American Idol in May, scoring an impressive 10 million viewers. Fans will have to wait until Wednesday, Sept. 16 for Episode 2, but a Fox source tells me the network plans to rerun the pilot episode before then for anyone who hasn't streamed it yet. Source here

Glee Peek: Are Finn and Rachel Getting Cozy? - Featured

Fox is teasing us all summer long with short promos leading up to the recently announced premiere of Glee on Sept. 16, but they're not the only ones pulling our legs. In the promo below from E!Online, you see not one, not two, but three different makeout sessions--two of which include the illustrious love triangle known as Quinn, Finn and Rachel. Remember back in the pilot that Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) said the rest of the glee club expected her and Finn (Cory Monteith) to become an item? Unfortunately, he's already with bitchy cheerleader Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron). Take a look at the new promo: Glee: Are Finn and Rachel Getting Cozy? Photo courtesy of TVGuide.com

Fox Fall Lineup Starts Late(r) - Featured

For the first time in years, Fox will launch a fall lineup in mid- to late September alongside most of its rivals. Though few Fox programs will debut during the official start-of-season "premiere week" beginning Sept. 21, most of the network's primetime programs will begin within a few days of the traditional launch period. This is a change in strategy from recent years. Fox kicked off its season on Sept. 1 last year. In 2007, Fox debuted one premiere on Aug. 30 and other shows in early September. In 2006, Fox's lineup started rolling out Aug. 21. Whereas this fall, Fox's weeknight programming begins Sept. 16 with " So You Think You Can Dance " and " Glee ." Several factors go into deciding a premiere schedule, but one reason for the switch is that Fox expects fewer baseball pre-emptions next season in October. The network has typically debuted shows in late August or early September to give programs a longer running head start before Major League Baseball coverage interrupted its lineup. One outlier in the plans is the debut of new late-night program "The Wanda Sykes Show," which will launch Nov. 7. Source: THR.com

Jane Lynch: Glee's Not as "Sappy" as High School Musical - Featured

Put High School Musical and Glee in the same sentence and you just might see Jane Lynch's claws come out. "I don't know that it is anti-High School Musical," she tells E! News. "But it's much harsher. It's snarkier. It's not as sappy, if you will." Jane's got more to say on that and on what's in store this season... "I mean, High School Musical was good and everything, but it was kind of surface level sappy," she continues. "These kids [in Glee] are going through real issues." What issues you ask? For one, she says, someone is coming out of the closet. Check out the interview clip on E!Online for more from Jane, and then hit the comments with your thoughts on the new Fox series.

Chenoweth Scores Date with Twelve Men, Plus the Latest on Her Glee Gig

Tony winner and former Daisies pusher Kristin Chenoweth has landed the lead in Twelve Men of Christmas, a Lifetime original movie to premiere in December, as part of the cabler's "Fa La La La Lifetime" holiday event. "Kristin Chenoweth is a force of nature with a unique charm, wit and warmth that make her the perfect choice," Lifetime senior VP of original programming Tanya Lopez says of the casting. Based on Decent Exposure, a novel by Phillipa Ashley, Twelve Men finds Chenoweth playing a PR maven who loses her high-powered job and her fiance on the same night, at her office holiday party. She then slinks away to Montana, where she cooks up the idea to market a small town's home-bred beefcake via a calendar. Hilarity and comedic romance ensues. Although Chenoweth's David E. Kelley pilot didn't get picked up by NBC, her fans still have much to anticipate. ABC is airing the acclaimed-yet-undersampled Pushing Daisies ' final three episodes starting this Saturday at 10 pm/ET, and the actress/songstress can be seen on Fox's Glee this fall. Chenoweth guest-stars in the fourth episode following the already sneak-peeked pilot, and sources say her role could become a recurring one. Source Here

Is Chuck Only Coming Back Because It's Cheap? - Featured

First of all, Chuck and Dollhouse ain't cheap. But most of the new shows debuting this fall will probably cost a tad more to produce. Once you buy the right toy box for stashing your high-end Dollhouse femmebots - or shiny spy toys for the Chuck cast to play with - you really don't need to worry about financing that stuff every season. New shows like Glee , of course, must curate everything from scratch - studio space, costumes, props. And that means more money. Now, all the stuff I've outlined above hinges on one factor: crappy ratings. If ratings for a returning show are anything other than horrific, then forget everything I just wrote; the money gets really iffy. Because the actors get grabby. Right, Matthew Fox? Actually, first, let's talk about Jennifer Aniston. At the height of their popularity a few years back, she and the rest of the cast of Friends renegotiated their contracts and demanded a boggling $1 million per episode. Needless to say that when that show returned to the air for its next season, it was not cheaper than the season before. Ditto with Donald Trump, who successfully demanded a doubling in pay - to roughly $1 million per episode - for that show where he fires everybody. But fear not; far sexier renegotiators can and do exist in the Hollywood pantheon, including Lost 's Matthew Fox, who got a pay raise from $150,000 to $225,000 per episode last year. Now. For the rest of your question. Generally, hour-long shows cost at least $1 million to $2 million per ep, except for reality, which can go as low as $100,000. Half-hour improv and scripted are somewhere in between - Upright Citizens Brigade founder Matt Walsh tells me his upcoming show for Spike TV, Players, rings in at about $600,000 per. "The ratings don't affect the cost of the show whatsoever," adds Fred Seibert, a former exec at Nickelodeon and MTV who now serves as creative director for the online company Next New Networks. Instead, he says, "actors and writers are the most costly aspect of the show." Well, yes, that. And cases and cases of Dharma Initiative wine. Source here
