TV Squad Mash: Dancing to the Beat

by Avaryl Halley, posted Jan 17th 2011 10:00AM
GleeIt's undeniable: 'Glee' is a sensation, a phenomenon, a pop cultural juggernaut thanks to its inventive song-and-dance numbers. So, we decided to put together a little tribute to all the TV musical/dance numbers that came before it and will certainly come after this Gleek invasion.

The idea of a incorporating musical numbers into a weekly TV show has been around since the 1950's when Lucy "wanted to be in the show.' They haven't always been successful (see: 'Cop Rock', 'Viva Laughlin') but they have always pushed the boundaries and brought levity and warmth into our living rooms or more recently our computer screens.

Check out this compilation of some of the best musical and dance numbers throughout television history; reminding us all to shake it up, to break into song in the middle of work, to tap dance on your way to class, and always, always sing way too loud in your car.

I would not waste my time watching this show. Just having that airhead Paula on it is enought to turn me or my friends off. Will never watch junk like this. The show is just a money grabber for Paula types needing limelight to get by. dump it fast, its a loser.

Congratulations Glee! You've just become the 2nd Milli Vanilli. Seinfeld mocked bs in America. Glee copied that. So that copied the mockery. What does that say?

This dance montage was great. I was disappointed that there were no clips from the Drew Carey show
which had some of the greatest dances.
