Glee Goes For Three

... Television will stay dancey and singy for another season, as Fox has gone ahead and announced a very early Season 3 pickup for Glee. Yes, Glee hasn't even started its second season, but it's such a big to-do that Fox is ready to commit. [Fox via press release]

... Our TV landscape will be polluted with yet another dance competition show, as CBS gets into the game with Got to Dance (what a title!). The show, which was previously picked up in March, will have some instant firepower with judge Paula Abdul. Hopefully they'll change the name of the program to Got to Get Drunk on Live TV and Make an Ass of Myself!. [THR]

... Bret Michaels has won Celebrity Apprentice. Normally I would make some joke about him being a scumbag who likes to surround himself with trash and venereal diseases, but the guy almost died and is doing the show for his diabetes charity. So good on you, Bret. [PB Pulse]

... I watched the Lost finale, but not everyone did. Only 13 million people tuned into television's most-hyped event since color TV, not exactly the eye-popping numbers we were expecting. [TV By the Numbers]

... Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar, who left the CW drama a few seasons ago, have signed on to work on a remake of Charlie's Angels for ABC. Yeah, that should go well. [Deadline Hollywood]

... I'm not a bad guy, but man do I want the MacGruber movie to bomb at the box office. Oh look! It did! [Businessweek]

I just started watching Glee about 3 shows ago and I love it. The cheerleading coach is great, and all the characters--Kurt, Rachel, Fin, Mercedes. I don't even know their names yet but the woman who plays Racheal was in Spring Awakening and her mom, the leader of rival glee club Vocal Adrenaline was a Witch in Wicked on Broadway. I loved it when Neil Patrick Harris was on and sang a duel/duet with the glee club teacher on Dream On by Aerosmith. I like the mix of music, from Kiss to Lady Gaga, Journey, Vanilla Ice, and Broadway. The Youtube Video of the cheerleader coach dancing to Let's Get Physical. Glee is a good showcase for music, and of course it is implausible that a high school glee club could afford the lights, camera, action, costumes, etcetera, but musicals always require a suspension of disbelief. Would gang members dance and break into song like in West Side Story? I don't think so. But musical shows have never worked on TV that I can recall. Cop Rock, anyone? Bravo for Glee, and Fox for commiting to a third season.

I can't believe lost got such los ratings. This either shows how flawes Nielsen is or how America is slowly building a resistance to things that everyone talks about

YAY for Glee! GTD already sounds lame, but dance shows are a guilty pleasure so I may just have to check it out.

The finale was good. I can't believe Brett even made it to the finale.

what are you talking about? the lost finale brought in 13.1 million viewers, that 4 million viewers more than every episode got this season. 4 million bump is quite impressive.
