Season four has brought a lot of changes to FOX’s musical drama Glee. It split the action between McKinley High in Ohio with the actual Glee club and New York City where graduates Rachel and Kurt moved to at the end of last season.The split is ambitious to say the least and it sorta feels like there are two separate shows going on at once- I’m not fully sure if this is a good thing yet. It comes off a little scatter brained and as someone who doesn’t care much for Rachel or Kurt, I feel myself zoning out whenever the show cuts to New York (that is unless Whoopi is guest starring).

Last week saw the New Directions, led by Finn, losing Sectionals and putting the future of the club on the line. This was a pretty good twist after the team came off winning Nationals last year and not only knocks them down a peg, but breaks us from the constant format of always working towards Sectionals, Regionals, then Nationals… a format that feels very tired in the show’s forth season. I’m very interested in where they will go from here.

Official Description, “Swan Song”: Finn thinks about his future with the glee club after Sectionals are over. Elsewhere, Rachel gets ready for NYADA’s winter showcase; and Kurt gets a second chance at an audition.

The new Glee episode airs tonight at 9:00pm on FOX. What else is on tonight?

The last episode of Glee was a pretty big one for Naya Rivera’s Santana as she was outed and the repercussions will continue in this week’s episode, “I Kissed a Girl”. It airs on Fox at 8pm, here is the official description: As the race for McK.inley High President comes to an end, someone is caught trying to fix the results. Meanwhile, Coach Beiste gets up the nerve to challenge Sue Sylvester and things get complicated for Puck and Quinn.

You can check out a video preview for the episode over on 141tv. This season of Glee has been leaps and bounds better than last year as they try to recapture some of the magic of the first season.  They have been getting away from the gimmicks and have shifted the focus back on the characters.

There is a decent selection of programming tonight, along with the return of FOX’s regular Tuesday night programming since the World Series ended. On tonight’s Glee at 8pm on FOX we are introduced to a new character portrayed by Damian McGinty, the co-winner of The Glee Project reality competition. Check out the network’s official description of the all new episode: “Pot of Gold” A new foreign-exchange student (Damian McGinty) enrolls at McKinley and crashes with Brittany, who thinks he’s a leprechaun. Meanwhile, Mercedes tries to recruit members for Shelby Corcoran’s new glee club; and Sue’s congressional campaign heats up.

I’m not digging this whole rivalry with the school having two Glee clubs. We’ll have to see how it plays out, the random month hiatus between new episodes certainly did not help the flow of season three.

Tonight I’ll be busy watching an all new episode of (the best show on TV) Chuck. But what else is going on in the idiot box?

Smallville has an end date and will go out with a bang in the form of a two hour series finale on Friday, May 13, 2011. It is still hard to believe that the young Superman series is ending, and with how awesome the 10th season has been, I keep hoping that they will announce a continuing series for Lois and Clark or in the very least a spinoff for Green Arrow or one of the many other DC Comics heroes introduced in the series.

FX’s popular comedy The League will be returning for a 13 episode 3rd season! The series is based around a group of friends that are all part of a fantasy football league. It stars Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Jonathan Lajoie, Paul Scheer, Katie Aselton, and Stephen Rannazzisi.

The latest episode of CSI featured a cameo by non other than William Petersen’s Gil Grissom. Check it out for yourself here. It was great to see him back on the show, but it couldn’t be a little longer?

The post-Superbowl episode of Glee was actually pretty good (especially when compared to most of the lack-luster second season of the hit Fox musical). You can see the “Thriller”/”Heads will Roll” meshup over on Hulu.

The Pit v3 Logo

Lots of stuff is going on in the world of entertainment. The NBC late-night drama continues, shows are coming and going, and Avatar is finally being challenged at the box office. Welcome to The Pit.

  • The Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman post-apocalyptic thriller The Book of Eli managed to edge out James Cameron’s Avatar out of the top spot at the domestic box office on Friday  by about a million dollars. Can it beat it on Saturday and Sunday to take the weekend? Maybe.  I have a feeling that Avatar might keep the top spot thanks to the 3D and Imax showings.
  • Earlier this week it was announced that Peter Sarsgaard was in final talks to take on the villainous role of Dr. Hector Hammond, a villain that I never really cared about in the comics. He is a great actor, I just wonder where they are going to go with the character.  I’m still not sold on Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, she seems too young and just not suited for the role.  Today it was revealed that Mark Strong is up for the ultimate GL villain, Sinestro. That my friends, could be perfect casting.  Strong vs Ryan Reynold’s Hal Jordan in a space battle with two of the most powerful weapons in the universe? Badass.
  • Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock full on kissed at the Critics Choice Awards after they tied for Best Actress. Ewwwwww.

Moving on to TV, there have been lots of renewals, included in the mix is:

  • ABC: The Middle, Cougar Town, Modern Family
  • CBS: The Good Wife, NCIS: Los Angeles
  • Fox: Glee
  • Starz: Spartacus: Blood and Sand
  • TNT: Men of a Certain Age

What is really interesting about this is the second season pick-up for Spartacus: Blood and Sand, which hasn’t even started its first season. The show looks like a pretty cool cross between 300 and Gladiator and co-stars Lucy “Xena” Lawless.  If I got Starz, I’d totally watch it, but as it is I’ll have to wait for it to come on Netflix.  None of the other listed shows are really surprising, I love Glee and ABC’s new comedies have been doing good.  Modern Family is hysterical and has an awesome cast.  Men of a Certain Age hasn’t been killing in the ratings, but with the talent behind it I’m not surprised that it is continuing.

Glee on Fox

Before I talk about tonight’s TV, I can’t believe that yesterday I completely forgot about the return of Scrubs! Luckily, ABC puts all of the episodes online, so I should be able to catch the two new episodes later in the week.

Tonight I will not forget about the new episode of Glee. The episode’s official description: Budget cuts mean no yearbook photo for the glee club, but Rachel is the only one upset about this. Meanwhile, Quinn tries to get into the Cheerios yearbook photo; and Will and Terri face serious problems in their relationship.”  The title of the episode is “Mattress”, so I would not be surprised if there was a big song and dance number around mattresses. The new series has continued to amaze me, with not only great music and routines, but also with interesting characters that I actually care about. The new episode airs at 9pm on FOX.
