'American Horror Story': Ben Gets a Warning About the House He'll Surely Ignore (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 6th 2011 3:45AM
'American Horror Story' - 'Pilot'After much anticipation, 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX) finally premiered, and it's about as twisted, convoluted and bizarre as you could hope. Creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk seem to be happy to have returned to FX, where they created 'Nip/Tuck.'

'AHS' brings plenty of sex appeal with its horror, which has elements of 'The Shining' and other psychological horrors. Thankfully, they don't appear to have gone the slasher route with this one, preferring to do a lot of their work in the dark and in the mind.

Consider Yourself Warned: Five Ways 'American Horror Story' Will Be a Train Wreck

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 4th 2011 2:00PM
You've probably heard some buzz about 'American Horror Story' (10PM ET Wednesday, FX), the new drama from 'Glee's' Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. That's not surprising; if there's one thing Murphy is good at, it's creating shocking moments that the media likes to gab about.

The thing is, that may be the only things he's good at anymore. It's not that 'American Horror Story' is 100 percent awful, though at times it veers dangerously close to that. But longtime Murphy watchers know that it's only a matter of time before the few promising elements are clobbered to death by the dumb moves his shows inevitably pull.

If you do get pulled in by the show's wildly uneven premiere, trust me, in time, you are bound to be disappointed. Let me count the ways:

'Glee Project' Winner Revealed (VIDEO)

Ryan Murphy, 'The Glee Project' finaleAfter last week's twist non-elimination on 'The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM ET on Oxygen), it was a final four competing for that seven-episode guest spot on 'Glee.' But the producers of this show know what 'Glee' is all about, and they made sure it was a fun-filled hour even while tension was high.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

The entire cast of 'The Glee Project' returned to provide emotional and moral support, as well as participate in both the Homework challenge and the video shoot. It was a great way to remember all those faces, and hope that maybe Ryan Murphy can find a way to at least give some of them a cameo in the upcoming season.

The Final Cut Before the Finale of 'The Glee Project' (VIDEO)

'The Glee Project'With next week's finale looming, the final four contestants on 'The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM ET on Oxygen) were definitely feeling the pressure. We'd imagine, though, that Ryan Murphy and everyone behind the scenes was just as nervous about the results. After all, this person is being promised a long-term guest spot on the show.

They've got to make sure it's someone they can be inspired to build a character arc for, and someone they believe can stand next to their current cast both as an actor and as a performer. It's a pretty daunting position for both sides of the competition.

Could Lindsay Become the Next Lea Michele on 'The Glee Project?' (VIDEO)

glee project lindsayCould it be? Have we found the next Lea Michele?

On the latest episode of 'The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM on OXY), 'Glee' boss Ryan Murphy told contestant Lindsay that she could become the next sing-along superstar on his hit show -- if only she showed her vulnerable side a little more.

Hearing Murphy tell her exactly what he was looking for inspired Lindsay to drop her "perfect" veneer and to shed a few tears while revealing that she was adopted, and that she struggles to fit in with her family, which is full of jocks.

"I'm not perfect like they are, so I strive," she said.

Sounds 'Glee'-enough to us. What do you think? Was Murphy being a little too harsh on Lindsay, or were his words exactly what she needed to hear?

Cameron Quits 'The Glee Project' Despite Ryan Murphy's Efforts (VIDEO)

Cameron Mitchell leaves 'The Glee Project'Cameron Mitchell had been close to leaving 'The Glee Project' (Sundays, 9PM on Oxygen) before, and not of his own volition. But he battled his way back to become a fan favorite, only to walk away on Sunday's episode by his own choice, and over the objections of 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy, who didn't want him to leave.

Onstage to sing for his place in the competition, Mitchell said he was done. "I feel like that, you know, maybe this isn't for me," he told the judges. "Well how 'bout you let us make that decision for you right now?" said Murphy. "'Cause I don't feel like I'm willing to give up on you right now."

'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.

Connie Britton, Dylan McDermottRyan Murphy is back in business with FX. The network has picked up Murphy and Brad Falchuk's 'American Horror Story.'

"We're thrilled to welcome Ryan and Brad back to their original home," John Landgraf, president and general manager of FX Networks, said in a statement. "They have shown an uncanny ability to bring original series to the air unlike any that have come before, and to reconcile 'wildly entertaining' with the 'creatively ambitious.'

"Once again, 'American Horror Story' is a wholly unique and original take on its genre with richly drawn characters. The ability to put together a cast of stars such as Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Denis O'Hare, Frances Conroy and Oscar-winner Jessica Lange speaks to the quality of the writing and storytelling. This series is going to blow audiences back in their seats, and we can't wait to have it on our air."

Matheus Goes for Sexy With a Shirtless Solo on 'The Glee Project' (VIDEO)

Matheus Fernandes, 'The Glee Project'One of the standout personalities on 'The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM ET on Oxygen) is Matheus Fernandes. The diminutive contender has admitted to being very fond of his abs, and so he must have decided to share them this week.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Fernandes continued his up-down run on the show. In the first week he won the homework challenge, earning a featured spot in the video for that week. The next week he was in danger of getting eliminated. Then, last week, he again won the homework challenge. So it was no surprise, that he continued the pattern and fell at risk this week.

'Glee' Original Characters to Graduate McKinley High in 2012, New Ones Will be Added

'Glee' castRachel, Finn, Quinn and Puck fans: Brace yourselves. It will soon be time to say farewell to the original McKinley High kids as 'Glee' boss Ryan Murphy confirmed that the characters who were juniors last season will graduate in May 2012.

Speaking on Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Friday, Murphy said that the upcoming Season 3 will be senior year for the original cast.

"I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this cast is people love them and they are incredibly talented. They've left sort of an indelible mark," he said.

"The thing that I wanted to do and the cast wanted to do, we didn't want to have a show where they were in high school for eight years. We really wanted it to be true to that experience. We thought it would be really cool if we were true to the timeline."

Ellis Has Her First Ever Kiss On-Camera on 'The Glee Project' (VIDEO)

Ellis Wylie, 'The Glee Project''The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM ET on Oxygen) continued marching along toward finding a featured player for a stint on the next season of 'Glee.' And, just like the show they're trying to find a star for, this reality variation is filled with the same kind of teen angst and drama.

Lindsay must be inspired by Santana, as she's clearly going out of her way to be the b**** of the show. Her constant target has been Ellis, who was more than vulnerable this week when she found out she'd have to kiss on-camera during the music video challenge.

Ellis might have been able to play off the fact that it was her first ever kiss, but Lindsay was right there. "Ellis?" she shouted in front of everyone. "Best first kiss?"

In anticipation of the Tuesday, April 13th premiere of Fox's musical hit 'Glee,' two of the co-creators, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, met with the press via a conference call the other day. TV Squad was in on the call and you'll be thrilled with some of the big news coming up in the last nine episodes of this award-winning first season. There were some insights revealed when the cast and the other co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy were on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' yesterday, but Gleeks want more, and that's what this is all about.

Among the highlights – for all you who need encouragement -- Jane Lynch does "Vogue" in the Madonna musical episode. Kristin Chenoweth was not paired up with Idina Menzel, but Kristin's episode (the third one back) is supposed to be wonderful. And if you liked Puck's performance of "Sweet Caroline," wait till you see him do a song like a member of the Rat Pack. For all the details, read on.

'Glee'-Mania Invades 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'

There's a ringing in the ears that doesn't go away when you are around a really enthusiastic, rowdy crowd. Mine are still ringing from just watching the cast and creators of 'Glee' on today's 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' If you were there, you're ears are probably bleeding. Let there be no doubt, the Gleeks are a vociferous and growing fan base.

There's been mania like this for television shows before, as well as music groups. Elvis Presley and The Beatles were drowned out by the audiences watching 'The Ed Sullivan Show.' And after Beatlemania, a little NBC sitcom by the name of 'The Monkees' gave rise to a worldwide fandom called Monkeemania. And now we can officially call the insanity over Fox's 'Glee' Gleemania. Feel free to share it with your friends.

The first week in April will be tumultuous for the folks from 'Glee.' Sunday, April 4, is Easter, then on Monday, April 5, the gang will be at the White House for the annual Easter Egg festivities. Then on Wednesday, April 7, 'Glee' goes to 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'! They should sing 'My Kind of Town' as a tribute to Chicago when they get off the plane, don't you think?

Barry Manilow Would Love To Hear His Songs on 'Glee'

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 18th 2010 1:01PM
barry_manilow_microphone_smilingBelieve it or not, Barry Manilow did not write the songs the whole world sings. He didn't even write that one. 'I Write the Songs' was composed by Bruce Johnston, which Barry readily admits whenever the subject comes up -- it's even in his Las Vegas concert show. However, Barry Manilow does have a huge catalog of songs that he has made famous, whether as a writer or singer. Therefore, why wouldn't he want Fox's 'Glee' to use his music for an episode? If it's good enough for Madonna, why not Barry?

Well, Barry thinks it's a great idea and did something about it. Ryan Seacrest reports that Manilow called him the other day to address rumors that he'll be on 'Glee' -- rumors that were news to me. Barry told Ryan that he hasn't received a phone call from 'Glee' yet, but he's willing. "It would be great."

He's even picked out a song that he would like to hear New Directions, the glee club on the show, sing. "I would love them do to 'One Voice.' That's the only thing I'd love to hear them do, but if they want to do my catalog, oh, I'd be right there." 'One Voice' is a great choice, too. It's basically a chorus piece and very relevant for the show.
