It's not easy being a Gleek. At least, it wasn't earlier this season. Aside from the sudden and tragic death of star Cory Monteith, and the subsequent sudden and tragic death of his character Finn Hudson, the Fox musical comedy (Tuesdays, 8/7c, Fox) felt a bit, well, off-key in the first part of Season 5. The story lines started to feel either predictable or haphazard, the music was bland and most of the theme episodes like The Beatles two-part tribute or "Previously Unaired Christmas," lacked a real purpose or message.
Thankfully, the show returned from its extended hiatus re-energized and looking — and more importantly sounding — like its old self. After weeks of letting Season 5 collect virtual dust on the DVR, here are eight reasons why it's time to ...
James Taylor is already a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but he joined another elite — but not quite as honored — group of musicians when he messed up the National Anthem at Game 2 of the World Series.
Following in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera and Michael Bolton, to name a few, Taylor flubbed...
Grammy-winning singer Michael Bolton is continuing to hone his comedy chops.
The smooth vocalist, who recently made cameos on Saturday Night Live and Two and a Half Men, will executive-produce and star on a comedy series that's being developed for ABC, Deadline reports.
Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg
They might enjoy a lazy Sunday, but last Saturday night, the guys of Lonely Island were rockin' like they were on a boat!
In honor of their 100th digital short for Saturday Night Live, cast member Andy Samberg and his evil-genius partners, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, whipped up a mash-up of some of the best clips from the past seven seasons.
Will Ferrell, Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live vet Will Ferrell stopped by to host for the third time with a little help from his friends, including fellow alums Ana Gasteyer (the Bobbie to his Marty Culp) and Will Forte.
Ferrell kicked things off by reprising his most famous impersonation — of former President George W. Bush. Turns out, George got a little lost about three and a half years ago and ended up moving into Vice President's Joe Biden's closet. Thankfully, George was there to...
Our roundup of the most memorable moments of the Emmys:
14. Worst Opening-Number Follow-Up: Emmy host Jane Lynch takes viewers on a tour through a fictional building where all TV sets and characters supposedly reside. Highlights of this exercise in randomness: Lynch tests out the laugh track at The Big Bang Theory, horrifies the Mad Men ad guys with tales of fast-forwarding through commercials and Slushees her Glee alter ego. The song ends on the line, "There's no place like TV ... except for HBO -- it's not TV."
Tina Fey celebrated having the No. 1 book (and the No. 86 TV show) in the country by returning to host Saturday Night Live for a third time. Six months along with her second child, the few sketches that did not reference the recent death of Osama bin Laden played up Fey's pregnancy...
Sean Young and Denis Petukhov
Jeers to Skating With the Stars for falling on its proverbial ass.

Tom Bergeron's wish came true.
After Dancing with the Stars' predictable Season 10 — in which practically everyone foresaw Nicole Scherzinger winning — the host was hoping for more surprises from this season's hodgepodge of evenly matched contenders.
"We got it! Really, it all started with David Hasselhoff [who was eliminated first]. That was the most shocking moment for me," Bergeron tells TVGuide.com. "I have no idea what happened there. I was like, 'What the hell?' I figured we had at least four good weeks of comedy coming and boom! He's gone!"

That set the tone for the season: Following Hasselhoff — whose only performance left much to be desired — out the door went respectable contenders Audrina Patridge, Rick Fox and Kurt Warner. And then there was last week's shocker: Brandy got the boot, while Bristol Palin advanced to the ...
Here's what happens when you get to do what you're good at: You own the ballroom. And that's exactly what happened when Michael Bolton stepped up to the microphone to sing the stirring "Hallelujah" in his signature raspy, wounded-soul voice. He may have been booted out by Dancing With the Stars voters last week who didn't care for his dancing, but the crowd on hand Tuesday night to see comedian Margaret Cho get the axe was enthralled by the return of Bolton, who probably would've scored three perfect 10s for his pipes. "I want to buy that record," said one woman sitting next to me, who was never a Bolton fan.
