Idina Menzel joining Glee!

December 9th, 2009

idina_menzel

Idina Menzel is the shit… she originated the roles of Elphaba in Wicked and Maureen in Rent and now she’ll be joining the cast of the best damn show in the world, Glee.

It is believed that Idina will appear in all 9 remaining episodes of this season as the coach of New Direction’s biggest competition, Vocal Adrenaline.

According to the article I read, Idina and Lea Michelle are supposedly friends and they respect each other and blah blah blah… which is of course all bullshit as these two most likely wish swine flu upon each other in their quest to obtain the crown of undisputed queen of Broadway.

CW announces prem date for Life UneXpected

November 10th, 2009

lifeunexpected

A show that looked really good at the upfront and I really want to watch called Life UneXpected has a premiere date. The CW will air the show in Gossip Girl’s Monday @ 9p timeslot beginning on 1/18. In the spring, the series will move up an hour into the One Tree Hill 8p timeslot. The thought by CW is to have originals run on Mondays throughout the end of the season and UneXpected will hold Gossip and Hill’s spots when they need to go on hiatus.

ABC kills some stuff and extends something else

November 10th, 2009

Here’s a quick rundown of the happenings at ABC:

- Eastwick will be done after its 13 episodes have run. That means there are only 6 episodes left to air.

- The plug has already been pulled on Let’s Dance… even though it wasn’t even scheduled to air until 11/23. The series will be replaced on Monday nights by the tear-jerker Find My Family, a reality series about people desperate to find a lost relative or friend. The network apparently ran into problems casting the reality dance series that was set to be hosted by Kathy Griffin. PR people are now back-tracking and claim the show isn’t “dead” and may make its debut mid-season or in Summer 2010.

- The Forgotten has been given a 5 episode extension, bringing it up to an 18 episode freshman season.

Advocates bitching about Glee

November 10th, 2009

wheels

It tomorrow’s episode of Glee (which I already saw and it rocked my damn socks), there’s a whole lot of stuff about wheelchairs and disabilities. Activists for people with disabilities have picked this episode as the perfect time to start complaining that the actor that portrays Artie (the kid in the wheelchair) isn’t really handicapped (I must say that I saw that actor on Monday night in Hollywood and it really freaked me out to see him sans wheels).

Activists complain that there are plenty of wheelchair-bound actors out there who should’ve gotten the job before Kevin McHale. Glee producers claim that they auditioned people in wheelchairs for the role but couldn’t find anyone as talented as Kevin McHale. (I’m glad they didn’t just give the role to a less talented person just because he was in a wheelchair in real life… I have a feeling that’s what they did on Breaking Bad with the horrifically terrible kid who plays the son and it has totally detracted from the quality of the show)
