Chris Colfer Tells Leno That He's Staying With 'Glee' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 8th 2011 3:59AM
Chris Colfer, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Chris Colfer admitted to becoming quite deft at avoiding the question about what's going on with his character on 'Glee.' He even tried to do it again when Jay Leno asked him the question on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), but it didn't work out so well.

"You guys were leaving, and then no you're getting a TV spinoff, and then you're staying. So what's happening?" Leno asked.

"The truth is people forget that 'Glee' is still a TV show," Colfer said, immediately launching into a deflection from the point. He stayed on this topic for awhile. "We just have to survive Season 3 first before we can worry about it," he said, and then immediately dropped the teaser, "Little did I know that I would be in the hospital, literally the first week back filming."

'Glee' Co-Creator Brad Falchuk Says Chris Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are Staying With the Show

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 25th 2011 7:30AM
'Glee' castIs there a little discord over in the 'Glee' camp? Last month Ryan Murphy said that several major 'Glee' cast members would be leaving the show at the end of Season 3. Their characters would graduate McKinley High and be replaced by new characters, just like in a real high school.

Makes sense, right? Well, yes and no. First, some of the actors concerned -- who are still under contract with the series -- expressed surprise at the news, with Chris Colfer saying that he'd found out via Twitter.

Then, last week Amber Riley said that the actors are all fine with the decision, and Lea Michele tweeted that "It's all part of the plan and it's all good."

Now, however, has Murphy's co-creator Brad Falchuk tossed a wrench into the works?

He told a Comic-Con audience that the characters are graduating, but they're not leaving the show: "It was never our plan or our intention to let them go. ... They are not done with the show after this season."

Oh, but he still had bad news for Sam fans: Chord Overstreet is done with the show.

Jane Lynch talks 'Glee' and the Emmys on 'Access Hollywood Live'Thursday was a big day for 'Glee', and for Jane Lynch, who plays the indomitable Sue Sylvester on the series. Lynch is hosting this year's Emmys, and in today 'Glee' racked up an impressive twelve nominations. This came on the heels of major 'Glee' casting changes that were announced Wednesday. Lynch called in to 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) Thursday to talk about it all.

Lynch was thrilled for Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Coach Beiste on 'Glee' and was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. "She's the best," said Lynch. "She's such a wonderful actress and she's a consummate professional. I'm just a big fan of Dot's, and so that really warmed my heart."

Good News for Gleeks

by Stephanie Earp, posted Apr 13th 2010 3:29PM


I think I have established in my previous columns that I don't like 'Glee.' But here's the thing: you do. Or at least a great many of you do. Oprah likes 'Glee,' Ellen likes 'Glee,' even Michelle Obama likes 'Glee.' I have decided this week, in honour of the show's return on Tuesday, to put aside my own distaste and bring you, my readers, as much good news about 'Glee' as I can.

1. More Music


According to the producers, the second half of the first season will be even more loaded with musical numbers, jumping from 3-5 numbers to at least 5 numbers per 1-hour episode (some episodes are closer to 10 songs).

What other 'Glee'-ful things are in store? Read more after the jump!

'Glee' Season One, Part Two - An Early Look

The cast of 'Glee;' they come back to FOX April 12
Hey, folks! Did you hear? 'Glee' is coming back on Tuesday! Wow, Fox really kept that comeback under wraps, didn't they? Gone for four months, they seem to be bringing the show back without a lot of fanfare.

Too bad sarcasm doesn't translate very well in electronic print, but, believe me, I was rolling my eyes the whole time I wrote the last paragraph. Between the interviews, the appearance on 'Oprah,' the performance at the White House, the Rolling Stone cover, the weird 9:28PM ET time slot after 'American Idol,' and pretty much everything else going on, you couldn't avoid the comeback of 'Glee' if you tried.

But is the show coming back in good shape? Fox sent out the next three episodes out for review, and the answer is: yes and no. It really depends on what your favorite part of the show is.

Cast of 'Glee'

As the nation -- well, a good chunk of the television-viewing public -- gears up for the April 13 premiere of the second half of the first season of 'Glee,' we at Inside TV are equally caught up in the anticipation.

To help celebrate the return of one of the most original, entertaining and hilarious shows on network TV, we bring you a list of things you probably didn't know about 'Glee' and its cast members (though we realize that seriously hardcore Gleeks have vast stores of knowledge about everything 'Glee'-related. We humbly ask them to indulge us).

More Sue, Songs and General Excitement: New 'Glee' Promos!

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 25th 2010 4:00PM
GleeLast season it would've been hard to describe any show as a "phenomenon" without having it be a stretch. However, this season the TV gods -- or you could just thank Fox -- gave us 'Glee.'

The hit musical series is back in less than month and Fox has been releasing new promos and special videos in an effort to wet the nation's collective appetite.

New segments of "Sue's Corner" have hit the Internet and commercials featuring new music and scenes are hitting Fox's airwaves, readying us for what we hope is a triumphant return on April 13 at 9PM EST on Fox.

Check out the new videos after the jump.

GleeLike so many of us, Michelle Obama seems to be having a hard time waiting until April 13 for the new episodes of 'Glee' to start.

According to the Ausiello Files, the First Lady has reportedly asked the cast of the Golden Globe-winning comedy to perform at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, which will take place April 5 on the White House lawn. The cast, of course, said yes.

Mrs. O and daughters Sasha and Malia are said to be fans of the show, according to the report.

Glee: Road to Sectionals - DVD Review

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jan 9th 2010 10:02AM
glee dvdReleasing Glee on DVD before the first season is even over was somewhat of an odd move, but one that makes sense when you look at both its fanatical fan base and the fact that it's taking a nearly unheard four-month hiatus (it returns April 13) between the first and second halves of the its premiere season. Basically, FOX knows they have a hit on their hands and they're trying to milk it for everything it's worth.

It's a smart move, considering that the response of most Glee fans (like myself) when they heard that there would be a DVD this quickly was something along the lines of, "Ohmygodgivethatomerightnow.Glee!Glee!Glee!." The days are short and dark; we need some sort of happiness to get us through the next couple of months until the new episodes come out.

My question about the DVD was, how good will it be? I mean, it will obviously have the first 13 episodes, so that's a big plus, but what of the DVD extras? Is there a reason to buy the DVD instead of just getting all of the episodes off of iTunes? The answer to that question is, "it depends on how you feel about video diaries."

Review: Glee - Mattress

Glee: Mattress
(S01E12) While they were in there, I told 'em to go ahead and yank out those tear ducts. Wasn't usin' 'em." - Sue Sylvester

I wouldn't say this is the best Glee episode we've had, but it had some good moments, and of course, that big reveal, which we'll talk about after the jump. The mattress scene was a nice little number, but I wasn't familiar with the song performed by Rachel and Finn, so that didn't do as much for me.

Sue Sylvester was back to true form from her compassionate scene with her sister a few episodes ago. It's hard to believe she'd have that much feeling for her sister, and yet still be a big you-know-what in the rest of her life. Glee breaks down stereotypes in some cases, but I'm not sure Sue falls into that category. She still seems like a caricature to me.

What's Hot on SlashControl: Endless Love on Glee

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 19th 2009 10:02AM
There were some great songs on last night's Glee, including the first one sung by Rachel and Will. As I mentioned in my review, this song set the tone for not only the episode, but the storyline of Rachel's crush on Mr. Schuester. But what was funny is that while they were singing it -- "Endless Love" -- everyone else's mind was wandering to their own thoughts of love, butts, Diana Ross, and underwear:

Kurt: "I could totally sing this song with Finn, but screw him if he thinks he's taking the Diana Ross part from me."

Puck: "I love the days when I don't wear underwear. Full commando."

Finn: "I never noticed how nice Rachel's butt is. Oh crap, I think Quinn knows I'm staring at it."

Rachel: "Wow, I've never noticed this before because he's always trying to destroy my career, but Mr. Shu has really pretty eyes."

Review: Glee - Ballad

Glee: Ballad
(S01E10) "What does a heart attack feel like?" - Finn, in a panicky call to Kurt after facing Quinn's parents at dinner

The subject of this episode of Glee was ballads. It was learned that the club must perform a ballad at sectionals in a few weeks, and the writers managed to weave the soulful songs into every storyline. The first was "Endless Love," sung by Will and Rachel. It set the tone for one of the storylines -- her crush on the teacher. In fact, the episode was filled with odd-couple pairings, thanks to a hat-draw for ballad partners.
