With so many Flaming Nose TV favorites coming to a season close, I thought there might be something nice to carry us through the summer. Alas, there will just be a one hour glimpse of Glee before it is put on ice to wait for the real debut in the Fall. What a tease. "Glee" (Fox, next Tuesday on May 19th, 9pm) gives us a great show biz perennial ("let's put on a show!") and smacks it down in a venue that is pulsating with peril (high school). Scheduled after next week's American Idol season finale, Glee should resonate with anyone who ever tried out for chorus or the drama department. Check out the video, it looks like High School Musical with brains and humor. Too bad Fox had to try such an odd scheduling technique. If it's any good, we will have a long, long wait to see the second episode. The audience better be patient, or else Fox will be singing the blues.
Oh well...summer belongs to cable anyway!
