'Glee' exclusive clip: Blaine teaches a lesson on smack talk

Glee has brought new faces, relationships and enemies to the sixth and final season, and on tonight’s episode, “The Hurt Locker: Part 1,” a very—uh, fuzzy?—intruder will be making a surprise cameo.

The New Directions are warming up for sectionals through a little friendly competition with Blaine (Darren Criss) and the Warblers and Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) and Vocal Adrenaline, and Blaine isn’t afraid to throw around some smack-talk (who else wants nice-Blaine back?) But, Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) have a lot of work to do if they want the New Directions to be ready for sectionals.

Will this sing-off scare away their new members? Or will the bear that’s invaded Blaine’s apartment do that for him?

Glee airs Friday at 9 p.m. on Fox.

'Glee' final season ratings crash: Clearly, many fans have let it go

GLEE.jpg

The final season of Fox’s Glee started on a very low ratings note Friday night.

In its new night, Glee opened to a mere 2.3 million viewers and a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49. Any show shifting to Friday night tends to coincide with a ratings drop (last season aired on Thursdays), but that rating is down 65 percent from last season’s premiere. It also stood as the lowest-rated regular episode for a series on a major broadcast network last night; obviously, it’s easily Glee‘s weakest premiere ever. Even ABC’s Cristela (6.7 million 1.3) kicked Fox’s musical comedy to the curb.

One highlight from the two-hour opener: Lea Michele singing “Let It Go” from Frozen. You can see that scene here and be sure to check out EW’s Glee recap.

The show is tackling one of the most iconic pop songs of recent years, Frozen‘s “Let It Go,” and EW has the exclusive clip of Lea Michele’s performance. The video will also be shown on tonight’s episode of American Idol. READ FULL STORY

Lea Michele to appear on 'Sons of Anarchy' (Updated)

UPDATE: Michele will appear in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth episode, which will air Oct 14.

From the Broadway stage to … a truck stop? That seems to be the way things are headed for Glee star Lea Michele, and she seems excited about it.

Michele recently took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her favorite show, Sons of Anarchy. Sons is heading into its final season, and based on all of the “Fear the Reaper” promos, there’s no telling why Michele is only sticking around for one episode.

EW has confirmed that Michele will play Gertie, “an empathetic truck-stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time.”

Lea Michele's Twitter hacked; no, she's not pregnant

This morning, Glee star Lea Michele’s Twitter account delivered what seemed at first glance to be big news. “Before this gets out to the media,” read a post that went live at 11:20 AM, “I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy.”

The post was quickly removed, however, and the actress’s reps have confirmed that it was a hoax tweet from a hacker.

If the message itself didn’t seem a little off—check out that clumsy hashtag—there was already reason to suspect it wasn’t legit. Yesterday, Glee star Chris Colfer’s Twitter briefly displayed a message claiming that he was being “let go” from the show due to “personal issues.” The tweet was subsequently removed, and Colfer announced that he’d been hacked.

Is the proximity between the two prank tweets a coincidence, or is someone systematically targeting Glee on Twitter? It’s unclear for now, but one thing’s certain—until everything gets sorted out, it might be a good idea to take any Glee-related news breaking online with a grain of salt.

'Glee': Are Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy teaming for a real 'Funny Girl' Broadway revival? -- EXCLUSIVE

This season of Glee has seen Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) win her dream role as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl. But are Michele and series co-creator Ryan Murphy, who owns the rights to the show, planning their own real-life revival of the iconic musical? Earlier this year, Michele gave interviews saying that the pair were indeed interested in bringing Girl to the stage.

Now, Murphy is confirming those discussions. While sitting down with EW for this week’s cover on his adaptation of HBO’s The Normal Heart, Murphy revealed, “I have the rights to it. It’s something that we’re talking about. I’ve never done Broadway. I’ve always wanted to. Right now, we’re just sort of testing the waters with different people.” READ FULL STORY

Fox confirms Naya Rivera has not been fired from 'Glee'

Once again, Gleeks can rest easy — Naya Rivera has not been fired from Glee.

Amid rumors that the actress was feuding with co-star Lea Michele and had subsequently been dumped from the show, Rivera’s camp told EW on Tuesday that “any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from Glee are absolutely untrue. End of story.”

Now Fox is clearing the air: “She remains under contract to Glee,” the network said in a statement. READ FULL STORY

'Glee' 100th episode party, On the Scene: Stars look back on 100 episodes, reveal whose song they would steal

When Glee first debuted in 2009, the Fox series incorporated music in a way that hadn’t been seen on television before. Without any big-name stars in the cast, the show was a definite risk. Now, more than five years and 100 episodes later, the risk has more than paid off. With a 3-D film, sold-out concert tours, millions of albums sold, and Billboard records broken, the cast and crew got together in Hollywood on Tuesday night — the same night the show’s 100th episode aired — with plenty to celebrate. EW was on the scene and asked the cast to look back at the phenomenon that they helped create.

“We were always the little show that could,” said Chris Colfer, who won a Golden Globe for his work as Kurt on the show. “When the first episode aired, everyone said, ‘Oh, it’s cute, but it’ll never last,’ ’cause a musical could never work on television, so it’s really validating to be here.” Colfer was joined by some of his original castmates for the special 100th episode, including Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, and Amber Riley. Many will also return later this season to see Rachel’s Broadway debut with the opening night of Funny Girl, which the cast just finished filming in New York City. The series will now completely relocate outside of Ohio to the Big Apple for the remainder of the series, which will end next year after six seasons.

“It’s amazing the amount of stories we’ve told,” co-creator Ian Brennan told EW. “Particularly in the way that we tell stories, but even sitting there today as we were talking about where we want to end up in the show, it’s amazing the stories we haven’t told, which I think leaves this last year…to be really exciting creatively.” Brennan is credited with coming up with some of the most memorable one-liners that Jane Lynch spits out as Sue Sylvester. Lynch’s favorite memories of the past 100 episodes come from the start when she was first creating the character and relationships with the Glee kids that would end up lasting for years. “I’m a great beneficiary of great writing and a great track suit, and it was kind of a job that came together at the right time for me, so I’m grateful for that.” Lynch’s favorite early Sue zingers?

'Glee' Review: An earnest, flawed tribute to the life (not the death) of Cory Monteith

How do you grieve? Emphasis on the you, not so much the how. There is no one and right way to grieve, and any form of it is going to be messy, awkward, and painful. Glee’s tribute to Cory Monteith — who died in July at the age of 31 from a drug overdose — told a story that marked the passing of the character he played, the good-hearted, comically dim high-school jock Finn Hudson. It was an exploration of grief — and a “self-serving spectacle of our own sadness” to quote the always tactful Sue Sylvester — that was, not surprisingly, messy, awkward and painful. As catharsis for fans of Glee and Monteith, “The Quarterback” was much like Finn himself: Earnest, flawed, a little irritating, winning.

The most conspicuous and debatable choice made by Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk was to deny the audience an explanation for what caused Finn’s death. Speaking through some opening narration by Finn’s glee-club cohort and stepbrother Kurt (Chris Colfer), we were told this information didn’t matter, with a tone that made it sound like it was inappropriate for us to even want to know: “Everyone wants to talk about how he died, but who cares?” It played like a passive-aggressive scold to those who only want to dote on Monteith’s death (and yeah, those people are jerks…), not — to again quote Kurt — “how he lived” (… but like we knew him?).

Glee‘s Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) has been dreaming of being a Broadway star her entire life.

EW has an exclusive sneak peak of the audition, featuring cameos by The Twilight Saga‘s Peter Facinelli and Ringer‘s Ioan Gruffudd. Watch below… READ FULL STORY
