You know, I watched NBC's 'Smash' last night, and while admittedly still finding its feet, I found myself thinking that the show hopefully wouldn't reach that 'Glee' level of pop disaster. Now, just as quickly as one 'Glee' casting raises hope, another sets the disaster bar way, way lower.
Because devoting an hour to the late Whitney Houston just wasn't enough, it looks like FOX's star-studded 'Glee' is headed back to the tribute well for yet another effort before the season ends. But who are the New Directions setting their sights on this time? Can anyone bring 'Glee' out of its teenage wasteland?
Never exactly a show to be known for it's subtlety, it was inevitable that 'Glee' would find some way to tackle Whitney Houston's death, and not in the previous coincidental usage of "I Will Always Love You". Now, only a few weeks shy of the singer's passing 'Glee' has decided to give Whitney Houston a full-on tribute episode! And there's nothing exploitative about that, at all!
It's that wonderful time of year, when PaleyFest brings forth all manner of wonderful spoilers, tidbits and scoops on our favorite TV shows, and perhaps none-more-so than NBC jewel 'Parks and Recreation.'

We aren't ones to make jokes about a 'Glee' star who's character was best defined as closeted joining the ranks of a Naval-based ABC pilot, but at least the pieces are all there!
