"Glee" returns on Fox at 9:25pm tonight

"Glee" returns on Fox at 9:25pm tonight
It's been a rumor for months but now it's confirmed,NBC is moving ahead with "Law & Order: Los Angeles" (aka "LOLA"?) - that makes 4 series concurrently running on television which seems like more original programming than The CW produces so why not get it over with and have a "Law & Order" network?
Patton Oswalt will be joining the planned NBC comedy "Beach Lane" along with Matthew Broderick and Kristen Johnston. That's a pretty good cast - let's hope the writing crew can deliver.
This weekend not only featured The Streamys but the College Television Awards. From the complaints we saw about how contrived the Streamys felt, the CTA might have been the way to go. You can see photos of the event along with featured presenters Tom Bergeron, Ty Burrell, Sasha Alexander, Busy Phillips, and Gillian Jacobs among others right here.
Tonight marks the incredibly hyped return of Fox's "Glee" at the incredibly weird time of 9:25pm but after last week's excellent episode of "Lost", we're just going to have to head back to the island.
