'Glee' Working on Second Madonna Episode

by Chris Harnick, posted Apr 21st 2010 2:07PM
Glee'Glee' felt the power of Madonna last night ... and it liked it.

So much so, the producers are already working on a sequel for next fall. Yep, another all Madonna episode could be hitting the air as soon as early next season.

The Ausiello Files reports that series creator Ryan Murphy is in talks with Madge to do a sequel. The two parties are both pretty keen on the idea -- and rightfully so: 'The Power of Madonna' episode barely dropped any viewers compared with last week's premiere and the 'Glee' Madonna EP is burning up the iTunes charts.

After being hyped to the max, did the Madonna episode of 'Glee' deliver the goods? Yes! It did! Not only were the musical numbers fun, inspired, and darn creative, but the storylines about sex, strength, confidence, independence, and individuality all blended well into the theme.

An All-Madonna Episode of GleeIt's an entirely Madonna-based episode of 'Glee' (Tue., 9PM ET on Fox). All the songs on the show are by the original Material Girl. But as we know, singing love duets can often lead to romance. Which is what seems to happen when Finn (Cory Monteith) and Rachel (Lea Michele) skip down the school hallway while singing "Open Your Heart."

Madonna's Memorable TV Moments

by David Ciminelli, posted Apr 19th 2010 7:00PM
Madonna Believe it or not, the feel-good primetime hit 'Glee' is about to get even better ... and it's all thanks to Madonna.

The Golden Globe-winning series returns to Fox on April 13 with a tribute to the music icon, featuring the cast covering what's sure to be show-stopping renditions of some of Madge's greatest hits, including the '80s-defining 'Borderline,' an acoustic version of power-ballad 'Crazy for You' and the more recent '4 Minutes.' Even Sue Sylvester gets into the groove, coaching the Cheerios through an energetic performance of 'Express Yourself' and taking lead on 'Vogue.'

"It's big...huge," 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy recently told Entertainment Weekly about the episode, which he's directing, yet he won't reveal whether or not Madonna will be making a cameo. What we do know is that the special episode will feature grander productions and at least 10 hits. We wouldn't expect anything less.

Madonna's decision to lend 'Glee' her entire catalog stems from the fact that she's a fan of the spunky song-and-dance show. Of course, the timing is also perfect for the master self-promoter, who is releasing a live DVD-CD of her Sticky & Sweet Tour on March 30, followed by the concert's April 2 TV premiere on VH1.

We're pretty sure that the 'Glee' and VH1 specials, as well as Madge's March guest stint on Jerry Seinfeld's new show, 'The Marriage Ref,' will eventually find a place in our ever-expanding compilation of Madonna's Memorable TV Moments.

What to Watch: April 19 - 25

Warehouse 13
- Friday April 23, 10 pm, Citytv

This SyFy show makes its Canadian debut tonight, although in some ways it's been in Canada all along - it is shot in and around Toronto and Dundas, Ontario, and stars a slew of Canadian actors, including series lead Joanne Kelly. The plot is kind of silly -- two agents are assigned to gather supernatural artifacts for storage in a mysterious warehouse. But one could say that the plot of 'The X-Files' is equally ridiculous - it's all in the writing and the chemistry, which for the most part has gotten good reviews. US media keep citing 'Indiana Jones', but another show popped into my head -- 'Relic Hunter.' But 'Relic Hunter' with a budget.

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).

'Glee' Star Jessalyn Gilsig Talks Madonna, NPH, New Directions & More

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 13th 2010 9:00AM
Jessalyn GilsigJessalyn Gilsig is known for playing the bad girl, the beeyotch, the woman you just don't want to mess with. Think about it: 'Nip/Tuck,' 'Heroes,' 'Friday Night Lights,' 'Boston Public' and now 'Glee.'

But changes are in store for Terri Schuester -- looks like it's really truly over with the once conniving, hysterically pregnant Mrs. Schue and her better half, Will. She's seen the light and is supposedly turning over a new leaf ... and, most importantly, she'll finally get to join in the singing and dancing fun.

I caught up with Gilsig to talk dream guest stars, new relationships and all the juice on the much-anticipated final nine episodes of the season -- including the big Madonna episode and a Sue Sylvester moment she says will "go down in history."

'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.

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.

Carrie Ann Inaba Reveals Connection to Janet Jackson (VIDEO)

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson once drove Carrie Ann Inaba to binge eat on nachos. The 'Dancing With the Stars' judge filled in for Kelly Ripa on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) and took a trip down memory lane with Jackson.

Jackson knew the situation well. It was the late 1990s and she was going on tour, taking four female dancers along, but a young Inaba was not one of them. Jackson had cut her after the audition.

"You cut me and I was devastated," Inaba told Jackson.

But, before you start sending the angry letters to Jackson take note, Inaba later went on tour with Madonna.

Ricky Gervais Talks Larry David on 'Late Show'Being friends with Larry David must be a hassle sometimes, but surely it's never boring. Being stuck between Larry and Madonna on 'The Marriage Ref,' Ricky Gervais witnessed quite the insulting exchange between the two, which he was happy to relay to Dave and a national audience on last night's 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

"He accused her of being a man-hater and she said, 'No I don't hate men, I just hate you," Ricky said. Then when Ricky and Larry met for lunch in New York City, the 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' star's quirks really came out, and it was "like being on [his] show."

Lunatics Running The Asylum: 'The Marriage Ref' Could Use a Real Coach

by Mark Wigmore, posted Mar 26th 2010 8:41PM


For nine seasons, NBC and Jerry Seinfeld successfully dominated the ratings with the self-proclaimed show about nothing. According to producers, the rules of the ever-popular and manically-rerun 'Seinfeld' series were simple – no hugging, no learning. Who knew that Seinfeld could accomplish all of these goals all over again with his new series, 'The Marriage Ref'?

Now nearing half a dozen episodes, 'Ref' attempts to solve the little squabbles plaguing married couples, pegging one against the other in a win or lose contest. The show found a home on NBC thanks to the tragedy that was 'The Jay Leno Show,' the 10 pm-slotted experiment that went horribly wrong.

The Seinfeld-produced reality/game show was fast-tracked into the open Thursday position. 'Ref' features stand-up comedian and long-time pal to Jerry, Tom Papa, as the so-called Ref. According to his website bio, he has no experience in the field of couples therapy or any other professional credit in the field. That's why we decided to talk to a real psychotherapist, someone who actually dispenses advice to warring couples.

'Alice in Wonderland's' Matt Lucas Caught With His Fly Down (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Mar 25th 2010 4:35PM
Matt Lucas Caught with His Fly down on 'Bonnie Hunt'Matt Lucas -- who starred as Tweedledee and Tweedledum in Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' -- was on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated), to discuss his first brush with fame. Apparently, as a young actor, Lucas got a chance to meet Madonna and have his picture taken with her.

This was an exciting moment for Lucas. "I thought, yeah ... finally I've arrived ... with all these cool beautiful people," he said. Unfortunately, Lucas had his fly unzipped in the photo taken with the Material Girl. We're sure that Madonna has seen worse things than an unzipped fly, but still -- with Lucas telling the tale, we got to savor his humiliation as he relived it all over again.
