Glee's Promising Road to Graduation Begins

Glee

On Tuesday's episode of Glee, Mr. Schue's whiteboard lesson du jour was WWMJD, or "What would Michael Jackson do?" And while there was no shortage of attention paid to the King of Pop — the gang sang no less than 9 numbers, which seems like a record -- the episode's real theme was all about what lies ahead for Glee's graduating class. The G-word has been a scary one for many of the show's fans ever since series boss Ryan Murphy first revealed — and then retracted — the idea that McKinley High seniors might not be... read more

Why The X Factor Bloodbath Is Good News — And Hopefully Just a Starting Point

The X Factor

Some time in recent days and weeks, Simon Cowell realized that The X Factor wasn't shaping up to be the singing competition to end all singing competitions. The money was there, as was the support from Fox, but with little more than 12 million viewers tuning in to see who would win a $5 million windfall, it became clear something hadn't clicked with America.

And so on Monday, we learned that he had cleaned house: Gone are stiff host Steve Jones and simpering, whimpering judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. Reports that Cowell was looking for more star power next season quickly followed. Mariah Carey's name has already been bandied about as the kind of A-list celebrity he wants, and she did serve as Simon's right hand during the at-home coaching sessions.

But is she enough? Is she even the right Hail Mary play? The truth is The X Factor has strong elements going for it, boasting auditions in front of a live crowd, Simon's bitter tongue and the most diverse lineup of contestants of any of the broadcast talent shows.

Now if only it could rid itself of any remaining similarity to American Idol. Some ideas:

Mega Buzz: A House Tragedy, a Housewives Baby-Daddy and an SVU Reunion

Hugh Laurie, Teri Hatcher, Mariska Hargitay

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Thanks for the preview of next week's House. Anything else you can tell me? — Alex
ADAM:
While lots of (deserved) attention has been paid to Jeffrey Wright's excellent guest turn as a neurologist deciding House's fate, don't take your eyes off the rest of the team. The incident that leads to the investigation leaves a major character fighting serious injuries that could upend his or her future on the show. And the crippling fallout will even have Dr. Crankypants uttering the words — gasp! — "I'm sorry."

Is Julie really pregnant on Desperate Housewives? — Jaime
NATALIE:
The promos don't lie, and neither do we. Susan is going to be a grandma. The surprise twist? The father... read more
