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


will feature rather prominently on FOX’s fall schedule, appearing in the coveted spot right behind the So You Think You Can Dance results show. The network is throwing every promotional trick they can muster at the series, with the early post-Idol premiere serving as the biggest treat in the campaign.

So, was it worth the hour of programming?

The opening was promising enough: fast-paced, flashing scenes at a sunny high school. An energetic, cheerleader-heavy intro ended with the coach’s angry face and witty one-liner - perfectly setting the tone for the rest of the episode.

McKinley High sounds like any school in America, and that’s exactly what aims to depict. The new series premieres Tuesday after American Idol, but after this sneak peek viewers must wait until November before enjoying more new episodes.

Matthew Morrison played idealistic Will Schuester, who optimistically chooses to lead the school’s Glee Club. Soprano Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) is the stand-out member in the Club, which is comprised mainly of school losers. Kurt (Chris Colfer) plays the sarcastic gay boy, Mercedes (Amber Riley) thinks she’s the next Beyoncé, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) is a punk rocker with a stutter and Artie (Kevin McHale) is a jazz-guitarist who seems to embody the description of geek.

FOX Reveals Fall Schedule

Glee

With the spring season winding down, the fall season is already waiting to heat up this November. FOX has unveiled their upcoming schedule, so you can anticipate all through the long weeks of summer reality shows.

FOX staples like House, So You think You Can Dance and Bones will all retain their usual weekday time slots, with Fringe and Lie To Me both getting the renewal nod. The musical comedy will appear on Wednesday, right after the Dance results show.

Friday will be a night of new programming for some viewers, as FOX has shifted their much-moved ‘Til Death into this space with two newbies. Brothers will premiere at the top of the 8 o’clock hour, with Dollhouse rounding out the latter half of the 8-10 block.

If you’ve paid any attention to FOX’s summer seasons, you know the network has had a fair bit of trouble finding a hit to put in place for Idol’s off season. was a rare win for the network, which has been looking for a similar summer reality hit for their mid-week lineup for several years.

And now, they’ve finally wised up and turned to a scripted series. In-between intense moments on , FOX has been running increasingly intriguing trailers for their musically-toned Glee. The first time I read a press release about this series, I sneered. Somewhere around the thirty-eighth promo, I started to smile. And now…I feel kinda gleeful about the premiere of Glee.

FOX to Spread the Musical Glee

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Prime Time, FOX, Gossip, Rumors,

FOX logoIt worked for . Disney makes money. FOX likes to make money, too. So why not sort of borrow an idea inspired by Disney, tweak it for TV, and make a truckload of money?

I’m just guessing here, but I feel like the pitch for FOX’s Glee went something like this. The network has ordered thirteen episodes of a new scripted musical series, truly the first of its kind. The maker of is behind the High School-based series, which will follow the characters inside a glee club that’s striving toward nationals.

Sources say the series will premiere in 2009, with speculation on the exact date running rampant. Some say it won’t appear until the summer season hits, while others are saying FOX will surely air it earlier to make use of an tie-in.

At any rate, it’s a musical series (there will be numbers every episode) starring a bunch of young, good-looking people. It’s not , it’s Glee.

And it’s probably going to be huge.
