Growing up is hard to do — even for the kids of Glee.
After graduating from McKinley High last spring, Rachel, Kurt and the rest of the seniors are going to have a tough time in the "real world" when the show returns this fall (Sept. 13 at 9/8c).
"That's what this season is about, to me — going from this very cozy, family environment where it's all about following your dreams and then all of a sudden that's done and you're expected to go out into the real world and try to make it work and try to pay rent," executive producer Ian Brennan told reporters at Comic-Con Saturday. "What does it mean when you tell kids to follow your dreams no matter how hard it is but then it's really hard....
We still don't know how much we will see of the McKinley High Class of 2012 when Glee returns in September. But one member of New Directions will be back in a big way: Sam Evans! With everybody's favorite "Trouty Mouth" aka Chord Overstreet in talks to become a series regular, here are five things we're most hoping to see from Sam next season:
Get ready to see a lot more of Trouty Mouth when Glee comes back for Season 4 this fall.

For a while it seemed as though Glee would suffer a mass cast exodus as graduating seniors Rachel, Finn and Kurt headed off to pursue theater-arts studies in the Big Apple. But now Fox has announced that the series will juggle both NYC and Ohio-set story lines, with Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson signing on as New York-based mentors. (I'm hearing the New York sets will be built in Hollywood so the cast will continue working together.) With nearly everyone expected back and no summer concert tour planned during their hiatus, for the first time in years the Glee cast has a couple of free months before heading back to work. Here's how they plan to spend the summer.

It's time for the holidays on Glee!
As New Directions prepares to take on a televised Christmas special on Tuesday's "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" episode (8/7c, Fox), Mercedes (Amber Riley) gets in the holiday spirit by belting Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" ... to Sam (Chord Overstreet)? Does this mean Trouty Mouth is on her wish list? We hope so! By the end of the song though, two other students are spotted kissing under the mistletoe. Check out the performance below to find out who's sharing a yuletide smooch:

Bree isn't really going to kill herself on Desperate Housewives, is she? — Brandi
NATALIE: Probably not. It may look dire now, but in the coming weeks, she's going to slut it up all over town, which is actually what brings Kyle MacLachlan's Orson back into the picture. We're hearing that when barfly Bree refuses the advances of a particularly aggressive patron, Orson shows up to save the day! Could there be a happily-ever-after in the cards for these two?
When is the baby going to be born on Bones? — Gina
ADAM: It certainly won't be before the recently delayed "fall finale," but when the show returns in the spring, Booth and an about-to-pop Brennan will be...
"You ask for a simple white Christmas ..." and everything goes to cartoon hell on Eureka, already the most animated of Syfy's quirky series, and a natural to be brought back for a one-night-only Christmas special, a gift for fantasy fans, packaged with similarly themed episodes of Warehouse 13 and Haven. The Eureka special (8/7c) is especially inventive, as the isolated mountain town's overtaxed Super Photon Generator interacts with a child's hologram-generating storybook, and abracadabra, everyone becomes a cartoon character (including Sheriff Carter's much-abused Jeep, cleverly and petulantly voiced by The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons).
