Katie Couric may guest star on 'Glee'

katie-couricImage Credit: Stephen Lovekin/Getty ImagesKatie Couric is in talks for a guest spot on Glee, sources say, but it’s not quite a done deal yet. The news anchor, who recently criticized Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, and Cory Monteith’s racy photoshoot, may appear in the post-Super Bowl episode. Your move, Diane Sawyer!

Of all the shows that pull stunt-casting cameos, Glee‘s somehow work really well — maybe because the show itself is so pop-saturated, or maybe because the rules of the show’s universe are incredibly flexible. High-profile cameos on Glee do not bug me at all. But I feel like we need a rule, and that rule is this: If you want to guest star on Glee, you have to sing and dance. Musical numbers are not a spectator sport.

What do you think, PopWatchers? Will Katie Couric fit in at McKinley?

    Enough already.

    who really cares? they have too many big guest stars

  • Birv

    I officially broke up with this show after last week’s Mercedes “Tots” storyline. I don’t miss it.

  • Mr. Holloway

    “Of all the shows that pull stunt-casting cameos, Glee‘s somehow work really well.”

    Couldn’t disagree more. The core cast is already pretty big, and the show already has recurring characters that need to be served.

    Most importantly, despite the fact that the show takes place in a sort of heightened reality, the high school setting doesn’t really make it conducive to a bunch of famous people popping up the way something like “30 Rock” does. It’s too distracting.

    • Elaine Bennes

      Agreed. It makes no sense. Olivia newton John judging a high school singing competition in ohio? Yeah, right.

    • BlackIrish4094

      I agree with your disagreement with the author regarding stunt casting cameos.

    • Sally

      I agree with your disagreement as well. The stunt casting does a disservice to Glee. It takes them away from what was Glee’s original charm – fitting musical numbers into current storylines and advancing the storyline in the process.

  • Mike

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. STOP THE CELEBRITY GUESTS. This is getting beyond ridiculous. Can the show not just have its tremendous ensemble cast? Agree with Mr. Holloway, the cameos on 30 Rock make sense… here not at all.

    • Mr. Holloway

      “Can the show not just have its tremendous ensemble cast?”

      I actually did a quick count (because it’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and I’m stuck at work even though there isn’t jack to do):

      There are currently 12 glee club members, plus Mr. Schue, Sue and Emma, plus recurring characters like Principal Figgins, Terri, Becky, Beiste, Blaine, Burt, etc. On top of all that the show seems to bring in someone new almost on a weekly basis because they’re famous and they want to be on “Glee”. (HUH?!)

  • Strepsi

    Katie Couric?

    I wonder what her character will be called: Gelfling, Porcelain, or Tickle-Me-Dough-Face ?

  • Elaine Bennes

    No more guest stars please. Focus on the core cast!
    We know everything about Neil Patrick harris’ character’s backstory and nothing about Santana’s life besides her last name.

    • Mr. Holloway

      Your comment made me realize that I didn’t even know whether Santana was the character’s first or last name. (Turns out her name is Santana Lopez.)

      That’s not good…but, hey let’s see if Katie Couric has time to stop by!

  • Rain388

    Please for the love all things holy do NOT make me have to watch that woman. Bad enough I had to sit through an entire episode devoted to Gwynth Paltrow – yes I’m one of the apparent few who didn’t like Holly Holliday at all – but I just don’t think I can tolerate Katie Couric on the show!

    • BlackIrish4094

      I agree with you I didn’t care for the Holly Holiday crap either.

  • BlackIrish4094

    Oh, for God’s sake enough already. Idiotic guest stars and cameos are killing this show.

  • Justin

    Kinda shows that it’s not a solid show…. because they have to keep bringing in guest stars in to drum up interest in the show.

    and Katie Couric? really? I don’t care about that little boy singing or dancing.

    Why can’t they focus on moving their story lines along? Do they not have any good plots to take the cast members on? are they just killing time?

  • Rolo Tomasi

    Everybody is to blame, if you keep watching the episodes, they are going to keep doing it. They best way to protest is to stop watching.

  • EW Enough with Glee

    Pls there are other shows on TV

  • Swerds

    My gut feeling is that she’s a judge at regionals, or at nationals in New York.

  • Chris

    So when is Snooki making her cameo?

    • MAMOL

      She was awesome on South Park!

  • Laura

    Nooo please no Katie Couric. Enough with the guest stars!
