The Glee Project
On Tuesday's Season 2 premiere of The Glee Project (10/9c on Oxygen), 14 new contestants will claw, croon and maybe even cross-dress their way to a recurring role on Glee.

You will need tissues.

Question: I'm really surprised by the lack of comment (here and elsewhere) on this season of Justified. It had a lot to live up to after that near-perfect second season and (in my opinion) has been maintaining the standard extremely well. I haven't enjoyed TV-show dialogue this much since The West Wing went off the air.
