Gleeks, rejoice! The wait is over, and the hottest person on TV, Matt Bomer (no bias here) of White Collar fame, is guest starring on the new episode tonight. I’ve literally played the Bomer/Darren Criss cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” about a hundred times this week and it’s so good that I can’t wait to finally find out what purpose it actually has in the context of the storyline. We do have some intel –Bomer will play Cooper, Blaine’s older brother, who is a celebrity in Lima after starring in a credit-rating commercial. The brothers don’t get along, and it seems that sparks will fly after Cooper teaches an acting “master class” to the New Directions.

'Glee' on 'Inside the Actors Studio': An inside scoop, horse estrogen, and a breakdancing Mr. Schue -- VIDEO
The Gleeks shall inherit cable at 8 p.m. tonight, when Bravo airs an episode of Inside the Actors Studio devoted to McKinley High’s finest. Sadly, the show won’t reveal whether Rachel and Finn are going through with their ill-advised marriage, or whether poor Quinn has become the next Marissa Cooper; for that, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow’s long-awaited spring premiere.
The special should satisfy fans who yearn to know more about Ryan Murphy, Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, and Jane Lynch. (Heather Morris is absent, probably because she was busy seeing a misogynist about a pesky pulled hamstring.)
It’s tough to choose which of Bravo’s six promo videos is the most scrumtrulescent. If pressed, I’d have to go with the clip in which Matthew Morrison reveals that as a young “gang” member in Orange County, he learned how to do the electric boogaloo. Check out Mr. Schue’s best You Got Served moves: READ FULL STORY »

The latest live show Dancing with the Stars features a performance by Detroit rockers KISS and the dances will be set to rock songs. Think the teams will have to paint their faces in tribute?
Glee, FOX 8p.m.
Bonus: Albert Nobbs available on VOD
Glee is back! I have had the clip of Blaine (Darren Criss) and his brother, guest star Matt Bomer (White Collar) singing Gotye on repeat all week, so it’s a good thing the show is finally back so I can stop driving my officemates crazy. After the cliffhanger mid-season, I can’t wait to see waht will happen as the McKinley kids barrel towards graduation
Also on Tuesday, gender-bending drama Albert Nobbs, which earned Glenn Close and Janet McTeer Oscar nominations, is available on Video on Demand more than a month before its DVD release.
American Idol, Fox 8p.m.
And then there were seven. The remaining finalists take the stage on American Idol as we head towards the finale. This week they perform songs from this decade, which I’m assuming means 2002-2012 – let’s just hope we’re done with the Adele covers.
Private Screenings, TCM 9 p.m.
To kick off the annual TCM Classic Film Festival, the channel’s Private Screenings series will feature Liza Minelli talking about her life and career. The fest, which takes place over four days in Hollywood, is premiering a new remastered version of Cabaret as well as favorites like Funny Face, Frankenstein, and The Thomas Crowne Affair.
Cabin in the Woods opens in theaters
Perfectly timed for Friday the 13th, Drew Goddard’s directorial debut Cabin in the Woods opens in theaters. Try not to read any spoilers before you go – the twist is worth the wait!
Titanic miniseries, ABC 8 p.m.
The ill-fated Titanic hit an iceberg and sunk 100 years ago this week, and several networks are commemorating the event, but none with more fanfare than the Julian Fellowes-helmed Titanic two-part series on ABC. The Downton Abbey creator dramatized the story of ship’s crew and its passengers. Part two culminates the series on Sunday at 9 p.m.
Girls premiere, HBO 10:30p.m.
Lena Dunham made her name with a film that premiered at SXSW in 2010, Tiny Furniture. Now she’s back, starring in and directing a show backed by Judd Apatow about the very real stories of a down-to-earth group of young women living in New York City. Be prepared to cringe, cry, and laugh – not necessarily in that order.
'Glee' actors partner up with GLAAD and The Weinstein Company for anti-bullying PSAs -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
From slushie-stained clothing to potentially fatal incidents, the cast of Glee knows a thing or two about the dangers of bullying. Now series stars Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith have partnered with GLAAD and The Weinstein Company — the studio behind Bully, a controversial new documentary — for a pair of short, efficient anti-bullying PSAs. EW has an exclusive first look at the clips.
In each video, Rivera or Monteith reveals a shocking statistic — three million students are absent each month because they feel unsafe at school — before telling viewers how they can take a stand against bullying. Both finish by urging PSA watchers to visit thebullyproject.com, Bully‘s official website. Watch both clips below.
Everyone from Hollywood moguls to Barbra Streisand came out last night (so to speak) for the Los Angeles reading of Dustin Lance Black’s play 8, drawn from the transcripts of the federal trial over whether the U.S. constitution allows for Proposition 8 to ban same-sex marriage in the state of California. In the beautiful and historic Wilshire Ebell Theatre, George Clooney, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, and Brad Pitt headlined an A-list cast that read a modified version of the play that was first performed last September in New York City.
“I felt after the New York version that I wanted to know the plaintiffs more, I wanted to know their personal stories more,” Black told EW after the show. READ FULL STORY »
Davy Jones’ former Monkees bandmate Micky Dolenz appeared on both Today and Good Morning America to remember his late friend. In a cheerful GMA interview (below), Dolenz reminisced about the pair receiving good reviews — even from Rolling Stone — on their tour together last year; and Jones’ enthusiasm early in their career when he heard their music on the radio.
In retrospect, Dolenz said he understands The Monkees phenomenon. “It was a television show about this band that was not successful, that wanted to be the Beatles but never was on the show. It was about the struggle for success, and it spoke to all bands, all the garage bands, all the kids around the world who were in their living rooms and in their basements trying to become successful. Because on the television show, we were never successful, so that endeared us, I think. That made it real to a lot of kids. The closest thing that’s come along down the pike since The Monkees, I think, is Glee, which is a show about an imaginary glee club but they really are good and they can actually do it.” READ FULL STORY »
Amy Adams doesn’t have the market cornered on Leap Day proposals — or self-embarrassment, for that matter. In my quest to make the most of the extra time the calendar elves have given me this year (suck it, Tracy Jordan and your $50,000 gift certificate to Benihana!), I’m looking to that great source of lore and historical accuracy: Wikipedia.
According to the site’s Leap Day page, not only do I have the right to propose to a man today, but if he says no, he has to buy me a dress or a dozen pairs of gloves — or hand over cold, hard cash. As we know, nothing heals the pain of rejection like material goods! Either way, I have only to gain from prostrating myself on the Internet. Game on, gentlemen! Below, I run down my prospects.

If you haven’t seen last night’s Glee, then you better put this post aside, lest you stumble upon a SPOILER ALERT! If you already watched the winter finale, “On My Way,” then click through to discuss some other shows that have used a similar plot device to raise the stakes. So what tension-inducing turnabout did the Gleeks endure last night? It was… READ FULL STORY »
It’s that time of year again: The time when the New Directions Believe They Can Fly at Regionals! Will they be victorious? Or will The Warblers — complete with the very nasty Sebastian — come out on top? We know Sebastian won’t “Stand” for anything less than a victory.
Of course, there are more pressing issues to tend to during tonight’s episode: Finn and Rachel’s upcoming nuptials, which, based on previews, Rachel wants to move up to, like, yesterday. Will Quinn talk her out of marrying her ex-boyfriend and place Rachel in a new, more logical direction (heh)? Hopefully not until Rachel and her best New Directions gal pals get a chance to channel Bridesmaids, as they do in this photo — embedded after the jump — that star Lea Michele posted on her Twitter. (The star tweeted Monday: “In anticipation of tomorrow’s very memorable episode, we took this photo.. We call it GLEE-MAIDS.”
