TV Report Card: Grading 10 Season Finales

May 25th, 2012 12:07pm EDT
Revenge Cast
Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams. They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air. From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales. The SPOILER ALERT is implied.

Reckoning, Revenge’s thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack. It wouldn’t be “Revenge” without infuriating twists and double-c...

'Glee' Recap: It's Mash-Up Week!

November 16th, 2011 9:50am EST
Glee 305
It seems like ‘Glee’ has just decided to pretend last week’s West Side Virgin Story never happened. Thank goodness! What a relief it is to jump right back into election season and age-inappropriate relationships! Puck leads the boys in a sexually charged performance of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” within the first five minutes of the episode and it's clear that we can put 'The First Time' behind us and have some fun this week.

The good news gets even better when Ms. Corcoran , who has nice scenes with just about every single character in this show, speaks to Mr. Schue about keeping their...

'Glee' Recap: Virgin Scorecard

November 9th, 2011 12:53pm EST
Glee Rachel and Blaine
Like Sandra Dee, this week’s ‘Glee’ was lousy with virginity. Expectations were high after promos showed Rachel, Finn, Kurt and Blaine all getting their sexy on… but as it happened, ‘The First Time’ was kind of disappointing.

Unfortunately, West Side Story just doesn’t lend itself to this theme the way Madonna does. The season one tribute to the Queen of Pop covered similar territory and featured “Like a Virgin,” the most perfect song for the occasion. More importantly, the subject of de-flowering came up naturally and organically. Conversely, this week’s sudden sexual awakening isn’t moti...

'Glee' Recap: Puck Goes To Cougar Town

November 2nd, 2011 1:37pm EDT
GLEE: Quinn (Dianna Agron, L) and Puck (Mark Salling, R)
After yielding its timeslot to Major League Baseball for the past few weeks, “Glee” returned last night with an hour of leprechauns, cougars, and congressional candidates. Picking up where the series left off, this reasonably focused episode advanced several plotlines and introduced some new talent, in the form of ‘Glee Project’ winner, Damian McGinty.

The second of four new cast members that will, at some point, be transplanted from the Oxygen Channel’s competitive reality show to the Fox flagship, McGinty was front and center in his inaugural appearance as foreign exchange student, Rory...

Kevin McHale Supports Suicide Prevention Crusade

September 1st, 2011 2:15pm EDT
Kevin McHale
Glee star Kevin McHale has thrown his support behind a suicide prevention campaign aimed at troubled teens.

The actor, who plays wheelchair-bound Artie Abrams on the hit TV show, has joined forces with officials at The Trevor Project to launch their Talk To Me campaign during America's Suicide Prevention Week, which begins on Sunday.

The new empowerment initiative encourages youths to step up and verbally offer their support to those thinking about taking their own life.

In a public service announcement for the organization, McHale channels his on-screen character and says, "Talk to m...

The Cast Of 'Glee' Talk About Becoming Movie Stars In 'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie'

August 10th, 2011 12:00pm EDT
Glee: The 3D Concert Movie
The last frontier for Glee to conquer is the movie theater. They’re already a hit show, a chart topping purveyor of albums and iTunes downloads and perform to sold out crowds on stage. Now they have a movie.

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie captures one of those live stage shows and uses Hollywood technology to make cinema audiences feel like they’re in the front row. The entire cast of Glee got together to discuss their concert movie, their advice to talented young hopefuls, the social impact of their show and what they know about the show’s third season. Glee: The 3D Concert Movie opens Friday...

Katy Perry's 'Last Friday Night' Video Features Cameos From Rebecca Black, Deborah Gibson, Corey Feldman & More (Watch It!)

June 14th, 2011 12:10am EDT
Katy Perry and Rebecca Black
Katy Perry's campy new video for her party anthem "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" was released online Sunday and made its TV debut Monday evening, and there's no shortage of stars making cameo appearances.

Katy drummed up some buzz for the video by setting up Facebook and Twitter accounts under the name Kathy Beth Terry, a 13-year-old alter-ego who's a geeky student with braces and "likes Sudoku puzzles, the solar system, high school science fairs," and is always wearing her orthodontic headgear.

In the John Hughes-esque clip, Katy wakes up after a party wondering how she ended up in bed w...

'Glee' Finale: Let's Hear It For 'New York'

May 25th, 2011 11:25am EDT
The glee club visits New York City for Regionals
We made it! ‘Glee’ is in NYC to compete at Nationals and conclude a chart-topping, show-stopping, star-studded, post-Super Bowl time-slot scoring second season.

True to form, our favorite fictional show choir is in a situation that is about as absurd as the Broadway-obsessed Rachel Berry thinking that CATS is still open for business. New Directions has come to Nationals without a song or a set list and now they need to write a couple of hits in as many overstuffed hotel rooms. Brittany, Artie, and Puck offer up the ditty, “My Cup,” and there are enough eyes rolling around the room for som...

'Glee' Recap: Love, Loss, And Pure Imagination

May 18th, 2011 3:12pm EDT
Glee Funeral
This week was a big one! ‘Glee’ is gearing up for Nationals in New York, but before they take Manhattan, Finn calls it quits with Quinn, Rachel and Jesse share a kiss, and all the plans to win get interrupted by a sad and surprising loss. It’s the penultimate episode of the season and as Mr. Schue puts it, the culmination of everything the glee club has worked towards for the past two years. They’ve got to be awesome and this week, they kind of were.

Like Kirsten Dunst hiring a jazz hands-obsessed choreographer in the movie, “Bring It On,” Mr. Schue has made the decision to recruit 4-time...

Prom Elections are in full swing and New Directions is filling in for Air Supply as the house band. While most of the club is pretty psyched about the news, but our beloved Mercedes is hung up on the fact that she doesn’t have a date. She was really Jonesing for that Cinderella moment and damn it, new best friend to all, Rachel Berry, is going to give it to her. Sam is recruited and agrees that with a little financial aid, he’s up for the job of accompanying both divas to their big night.

Kurt asks Blaine to prom and with a bit of gentle open-minded prodding he agrees. The more important q...

'Glee' Recap: A Whole Lot Of Rumours

Glee Kristin Chenoweth
This week is a tribute to the Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours and all the plot points are built around a track list that includes “Dreams” , “Don’t Stop,” and “Go Your Own Way,” among others.

Sue is back after a Gaga-mandated hiatus, and the first item on her agenda is to revitalize the school newspaper and get the gossip mill powered up and running. It’s actually one of her more sensible strategic efforts to take down the Glee Club. Using gossip columnists and tabloid coverage to take down a pop act?!? Look no further than the train-wreck eras of Britney, Whitney, and Lindsay, or Saved By...

Emma Roberts Dating Chord Overstreet?

Scream 4 star Emma Roberts has sparked rumors of a romance with Glee actor Chord Overstreet after the couple was spotted enjoying a night out in New York last week.

The young actors were among a group of celebrities who gathered at the Top of the Standard on Thursday night to celebrate the upcoming release of action epic Thor.

Julia Roberts' niece recently split from her tennis player boyfriend Dathan Kuppin - but she's not weeping over the break-up and has reportedly struck up a relationship with Overstreet, according to the New York Daily News.

GLEE Born This Way
In just a few weeks, the glee club is going to Nationals, prom royalty will be crowned, and Lady Gaga will release a new album. It’s a trifecta of amazing events that deserve to be brought together in a super sparkly, extra-long ‘Glee’ that’s all about self-acceptance.

Rather than hit us over the head with the theme of this episode, Finn clocks Rachel in the nose. In under a minute, rhinoplasty is on the table and New Directions is debating the merits of surgically enhanced vs unconditional self-acceptance. Miss Pillsbury is brought in to help Mr. Schue drive home the message that this we...

'Glee' Recap: Originality Wins Regionals

GLEE: New Directions perform at Regionals in the Original Song
Gwyneth’s gone and ‘Glee’ has a brand new gimmick to trot out this week. The episode, aptly called ‘Original Song’ is designed to showcase just that – brand new never-before-heard tunes that are as irresistible as all the karaoke tracks that have come before.

The concept has been brewing for a while now. Rachel Berry will put her musical genius and emotional baggage on the line for the sake of the glee club and New Directions will perform a completely original ditty at Regionals. However, her current set list (My Headband and Only Child) leaves more than a little to be desired and Finn ta...

'Glee' Takes An 'Original Song' To Regionals

GLEE: Kurt 'Original Song'
This week, New Directions decided to work with original songs, rather than the classics they’ve worked with in the past. Will it be the winning combination the club needs to stay in the running?

Coach “World Wide Sue” is all over this episode, thank heavens, and she’s great right out of the gate when she tells Mr. Schue she’s gotten My Chemical Romance to say no to the rights to the song he had his heart set on for the clubs ‘showstopper’ at Regionals. It seems she slept with the drummer. Although it later turns out that she forged the ‘cease and desist’ order, and actually slept with the...

The one-two punch of the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day hit the “Glee” gang pretty hard, and this non-holiday themed return is all about launching a ‘Comeback.’

First, welcome back Guidance Counselor and Stamos Wife, Emma Pilsbury. Though she seldom felt compelled to step in and combat the bullying at McKinley, a Sue-icide note from the fallen cheer coach has reminded her of the office full of all-purpose pamphlets she has yet to hand out to students and teachers in need. In a world where depressed faculty members audit extra-curricular activities, that and a bad idea is all it takes to ge...

NFL is looking to inject a little more relevancy into the big game's timeout. Enter the Black Eyed Peas. With their latest single "The Time (Dirty Bit)," the hard-hitting "Boom Boom Pow" and the ubiquitous "I Gotta Feeling," the popular hip-hop group has a catalog of gridiron-appropriate hits as deep as the competing teams' rosters. Plus, they've got an over-the-top stage show, which should make for a particularly memorable game break.

Don't Cry For 'Glee'... When It's This Good!

For sectionals this year, Will is determined to prove how self-aware ‘Glee’ can be. Critics concerned about how overexposed Lea Michele is and how underutilized Heather Morris is, Will has got your back. Folks, who would be happy listening to Lea Michele sing the phone book every week, Santana’s going to taunt you with “Yentl” references and torture Rachel with revelations on the true status of Finn’s virginity. (For those who missed it, Santana took it in the middle of a wonderfully entertaining tribute to Madonna.)

The news doesn’t exactly help boost morale for the glee club, although it...

It’s a Glee wedding – Finn’s Mom and Kurt’s Dad. Sue and Herself. Quinn and Sam. Within the first few minutes all three “couples” are flirting with the idea of putting a ring on it.

Meanwhile, Kurt’s bully is continuing to terrorize him and there’s nothing Principal Sue can do…. Except change her nickname for Kurt from “Lady” to “Porcelain.” Rachel however, is not comfortable with that course of action and rallies the Glee girls to sic their football boyfriends on Karofsky. The only one absent from the unsuccessful beat down is Finn. NOT COOL.

Also, Mr. Schue is rehashing last year’s Battle of the Sexes assignment and Kurt is getting physically and verbally attacked. Ryan Murphy has talked about how this season will deal with homophobia and focus on themes of acceptance. Right from the start, we see that these issues will be at the heart of this week’s “Glee.”

Before we get there though, Mr. Schue switches up the assignment of the week. So now, the boys will be singing traditionally female vocals and the girls will sing classic rock anthems. In...

'Glee' Recap: Rocking The Horror Show

Coming into “The Rocky Horror Glee Show,” my expectations were not particularly high. My familiarity with the source material began and ended with the iconic singing red lips and in general, I’m not a huge fan of “the Halloween episode.” I just don’t look forward to that week when shows decide to ignore every story arc they’ve set up just to put their characters into some stylized parody of a horror movie. Therefore, I was thrilled to see that this week’s installment of “Glee” actually felt more like an episode of “Glee” than an unintentionally rocky, well… horror show.

Two great ‘Glee’ episodes in a row! Last week’s ‘Grilled Cheesus’ made us believe in the power of this show to move us to tears and surprise us with its graceful exploration of complicated themes. This week, ‘Duets’ brought the drama back down to a high school level and gave us a distinctly different but equally satisfying hour of entertainment.

Mr Schuester’s announcement of an intra-glee club sing-off sets the wheels in motion for plenty of relationship drama. As with any high school activity that involves contests and partnerships, alliances build up and break down as disappointments,...

So now, to continue our sacred tradition, let’s recap last night’s show…

Glee creator Ryan Murphy is planning to devote an upcoming episode of the show to bullied gay teenagers following the recent suicides of tormented youths in America.

The writer is hoping the hit program, which features a gay high school student played by Chris Colfer, will show fans struggling with their sexuality how to cope with any taunts aimed at them. The news comes in the wake of a string of apparent suicides in the U.S. linked to sexuality and bullying - and cast member Matthew Morrison is welcoming the awareness episode.

"Glee" star Lea Michele looked dazzling on the red carpet at the Fox All Star Party in Santa Monica on Monday. The 23-year-old actress wore a strapless Giambattista Valli dress. What do you think?

Lea is constantly surprised by the popularity of the hit show because the series has gained her hordes of A-list fans, including Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lopez. She explained earlier this summer, "I am trying to grasp the fact that we have become as successful as we are in the United States, let alone the rest of the world."
