One thing is certain, Glee has been struggling in the ratings department this season. And not just by a little, by a lot. The show has declined in ratings every single episode this season. Even with this week’s awesome mash ups, the show still couldn’t regain the viewers it has been losing week after week. However, the collision of Adele songs has brought Glee back on top of the music charts. So with the few big numbers planned ahead, will this give Glee the ratings shake up it needs?
It’s questionable really. Despite the fact that FOX has been leaking the songs early to try and get viewers excited about them doesn’t seem to be working at all. In fact, the hype surrounding the Adele mash-up was so large but the episode pulled in it’s lowest ratings for the season. So what gives? I’m still tuning in week after week. Despite the fact that they are throwing story lines at me left right and center, I still want to tune to see how it will all play out. So, what does Glee have in store musically? Check it out below.
Welcome to another Monday. I know, they’re never easy. But, hopefully this list of new releases will help. If not for your own pleasure, maybe it’ll help with shopping ideas for a few people on your Christmas list. This week’s featured release is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Check out a synopsis below.
From Disney and Producer Jerry Bruckheimer come all the fun, epic adventure and humor that ignited the original. Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES. A tale of truth, betrayal, youth, demise — and mermaids! When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love, or if she’s a ruthless con artist using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. Forced aboard the ship of the most feared pirate ever, Jack doesn’t know whom to fear more — Blackbeard (Ian McShane) or the woman from his past. Directed by Rob Marshall, it’s filled with eye-popping action, mystery and all-out wit. Complete with a bounty of bonus features, this is one thrilling journey you won’t want to end.
You can choose this as a stand alone DVD or to add to the collection of an avid Johnny Depp or Pirates fan. Check out more new releases below.
If you’re a fan of Glee, this is the gift that just keeps on giving. After debuting their 300th musical performance mash-up of their Adele mash up, FOX has decided to release the rest of the music from this Tuesday’s upcoming episode titled Mash-Off. Glee has also been known for creating their unique mash-ups of songs with similar themes and concepts but this time, Glee kept it “in the family” if you will be having the mash-ups be two songs from the same artist.
The artists getting the Glee treatment this week are Pat Benatar with her songs Hit Me With Your Best Shot and One Way or Another, Hall & Oates with You Make My Dreams Come True and I Can’t Go For That and Shelby and Will square off for a You And I mash-up courtesy of Lady Gaga and Eddie Rabbitt. To be honest, I haven’t been a fan of many of their attempts to put two songs together. However, I think this time, they actually did a pretty good job. The Pat Benatar one in particular is quite well done.
But, the one song that has caught my ear in particular is Puck (played by Mark Salling) doing a rendition of Hot For Teacher which was originally done by Van Halen. Look at Glee digging into some metal music. I’m assuming that Puck is singing this about his new found love for Troubletones leader, Shelby. So what are you waiting for? Listen to all the mash-ups below.
Rumor has it that FOX’s hit show Glee is having a little trouble in the ratings department. They’ve dropped every single week since it’s season three premiere despite the hype that this season would be it’s best yet with minimal guest stars and the fact that the show hired a new writing department. I guess it’s loyal fans and viewers gave up on the show for trying too hard to push the envelope and be controversial. Try as I might to steer clear of the show, I can’t help but still tune in every week to see what songs they’ll cover and what’s going to go down with all of the new romances.
Next week’s episode it titled Mash Off and is sure to bring some serious drams. First off, Puck starts spending a little bit more time at Shelby’s and confesses to her that he is in love with her. Say what?! I can’t wait to see if Puck’s teacher is hot for student. Woof! In other Shelby news, her all girl show choir, the Trouble Tones face off in serious friendly competition with Santana and Mercedes taking the lead on a fierce Adele mash-up of her tracks Rumor Has It and the epic hit Someone Like You.
Thanks to the folks at FOX, we’ve been treated to a special sneak peek at the show’s big number and mash-up. I absolutely LOVE it. Now that there is a story line for Santana and Mercedes to shine, their voices are going to be all over the show! Plus, Naya Rivera is starting to rival Ms. Lea Michele’s ho-hum vocals on the show lately. I absolutely loved her her vocal’s on West Side Story’s America this past week. Go check out the performance spoiler below.
Another day, another post about Glee’s highly-anticipated “The First Time” episode. You’re probably thinking I’m slightly obsessed with it and your thoughts are bang on. Why? Easy. To my knowledge, a network show has never taken this far of a step with a teen gay relationship. Blaine and Kurt are finally going to bang the shizz out of each other. At long last, Kurt Hummel finally loses his virgin card. As if that weren’t enough, the episode introduces a new gay character.
Dalton Academy gets a new gay student in the form of Sebastian played by Grant Gustin. Immediately, Sebastian has the hots for Blaine and doesn’t hide his feelings and intention. The new hottie aggressively gets his flirt on with Blaine and makes an indecent proposal. Even when Blaine informs him he’s taken, Sebastian quickly explains that Kurt never has to find out. Man, how’s that for a realistic portrayal. Let’s face it, there are some unscrupulous homos out there who actively seek married men. Watch Sebastian hit on Blaine hardcore below. Kurt’s reaction is priceless.
Get ready to see a couple of cherries popping on the next episode of “Glee“. Two of the show’s couples are getting their freak on and losing their virgin cards. That’s right people, Kurt and Rachel are getting their kitty punched. LOL. I can’t wait to see how producers handle a teen gay couple consummating their love for the first time. Will we see cannonball confetti, a disco ball or some other over-the-top visual or situation? I hope so. It is Kurt Hummel after all. Over in straight world, Rachel once again contemplates sleeping with Finn for the first time? Will she finally stop being a cock tease? I’m thinking so.
Besides the whole sex thing, Glee’s “The First Time” is also momentous for several reasons. McKinley High’s production of “West Side Story” finally comes to fruition. With the classic musical being showcased this episode, all but one of the songs featured are all from the show. The lone non-West Side Story track is a cover of Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl“. That track marks the return of The Warblers. Side note, how many sexy gay Warblers did you see this Halloween? Seems like that was the go-to slutty costume of the year- blazer and no shirt.
The Warblers’ return allows us to meet Sebastian (Grant Gustin) for the first time. As previously reported, he will set his sights on Blaine and try to steal him away from Kurt. Let the gay drama begin. Also being introduced this episode is Eric Bruskotter, a football recruiter whom Coach Beiste and Sue Sylvester fight over. With gay sex, West Side Story, love triangles and The Warblers, Tuesday night’s show sounds like it’s going to be AH-MAZing (in Happy Ending’s Penny Hearts voice). Check out all the songs below, along with a picture of newbie Sebastian meeting Blaine for the first time. You can already sense the sparks between them.
Halloween may be over, but FX doesn’t plan on stopping the scares anytime soon! It was announced yesterday that the surprising hit of the season, “American Horror Story“, has been picked up for a 13-episode second season. The show, which was created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, has been scaring audiences with it’s unique story line and fantastic cast. Oh, and the occasional glimpse of Dylan McDermott’s booty doesn’t hurt either!
“It’s one thing to have the ambition and guts to reinvent a genre in a way that makes it captivatingly fresh for a broad audience — it’s something else entirely to have the craft to back that ambition up,” said the president of FX, John Landgraf.
Landgraf went on further saying that, “Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have hit the trifecta with Nip/Tuck, Glee and now American Horror Story, which will be scaring FX’s viewers to death for many years to come.”
Now that the Major League Baseball playoffs are dunzo, we can finally get back to normal programming. HALLELOO. “Glee” returns this Wednesday, beginning a string of new episodes until the Christmas holidays. I’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s just get to is.
As previously reported, rocky waters are ahead for the fabulously gay duo of Blaine and Kurt. Newcomer Grant Gustin will arrive on the scene playing Sebastian, a Dalton Academy Warbler. He’ll set his sights on Blaine and try to steal him away from Kurt. Sebastian is described as being the polar opposite of Kurt. Adjectives being used to describe him are “promiscuous” and “scheming“. Producers have revealed that he’ll be their villain for this season.
Sebastian’s arrival takes place on the fifth episode of the season. Ironically enough, the November 8th show titled “The First Time” features Kurt and Blaine consummating their relationship. Bom chicka wah wah!!! I wonder if producers will reveal who’s the top and bottom in their relationship. So glad, they’re actually giving the two a sex life and not treating them like eunuchs. Progress indeed.
