Glee: Big Moments, Big Changes

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Music, Prime Time, FOX, Video,

Glee’s latest episode had so much packed into it, our heads are still spinning. Burt Hummel (Mike O’Malley) and Carole Hudson (Romy Rosemont) had a big announcement for Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Finn (Cory Monteith) at the top of the episode: they’re getting married. Who else squealed with delight when Kurt announced, “you’re having a glee wedding!”?

Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) was also thinking of marriage. After exploring the wide world of Internet dating and finding only one match for her interests (extreme taxidermy, tantric yelling, poking the elderly with hidden pins), she began to mail out invitations…for her wedding to herself.

The video above shows Lynch singing “Ohio” with guest star Carol Burnett, who plays Sue’s Nazi-hunting mom. Rumor has it that Burnett suggested the song (which is from “Wonderful Town”) to Ryan Murphy. Sue’s mom is exactly what you’d expect - mean and tough as nails. We can’t wait to see more of her.

Carol Burnett Not Interested in SNL Facebook Campaign

The 100,000+ Facebook fans who have campaigned to get Carol Burnett on Saturday Night Live might be a little shocked to hear this news: the comedienne has no plans to do her Tarzan yell on the show.

Although Facebook supporters were successful in getting Betty White a hosting gig on the NBC program, Carol says she doesn’t want to follow in the Golden Girl’s footsteps. “No one can top Betty,” the 77-year-old explained. “Why even try to be an imitator? You just can’t.”

If Burnett’s fans are willing to go a different route, the Emmy award-winner says 30 Rock and are high on her list. “Oh, I would definitely do [Glee]. I’d do whatever they wanted me to, but I’d like to have a few scenes with Jane Lynch. I love her.”

Can Facebook Get Betty White an Oscars Gig?

When Betty White says, “Type, nerds!” - nerds type.

Approximately a week after the 88-year-old joked (?) in an NBC promo about getting a gig on the Academy Awards (watch the second clip), her Facebook fans got back to work.

Now there are pages devoted to having White host the Oscars and/or the 2010 Emmys. Oh - and there’s even one campaigning to get the actress on Glee.

A little tired of the Golden Girl overkill? Well, then maybe you can throw your support behind another comedienne. Nearly 79,000 people have already become Facebook fans of “Carol Burnett to Host SNL (PLEASE?)!
