ABC is taking a page out of FOX’s programming book by bringing viewers two new musically-themed shows next fall.
The first focuses on a mother-daughter duo, and will star Idina Menzel. The Broadway actress made a huge splash on Glee last year, and ABC is hoping she’ll do the same for them. Watch her performing "Defying Gravity" in the video above.
The second series is a female-driven sitcom, and there’s no word on casting just yet.

Laughter and tears filled the Season 1 finale of Glee, the year’s most talked-about new series. The episode, “Journey,” saw the culmination of everything that’s been building all season: the highly-anticipated Regionals competition featuring the final showdown between feature Glee club New Directions and rival Vocal Adrenaline, the solution for Quinn and her baby, the confrontation between Will and Emma and even a surprising final-act twist involving tough-as-nails cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.
It was absolutely, positively fabulous. Read on only if you’ve already seen it - or, don’t mind a bunch of spoilers!
Tuesday’s episode of Glee, “Dream On,” was explosive in many little ways - and it’s what everyone’s talking about after several hours of prime time TV.
The episode inched us ever-closer to the Regionals competition, where feature glee club New Directions will go head-to-head with the more successful Vocal Adrenaline. Neil Patrick Harris and Idina Menzel were among the long line of guest stars, but arguably the night was won by Joss Whedon. The director has been a main topic of Twitter discussion since it was announced he would direct the episode, and now the Gleeks are filled with praise for his management of the popular show.
Twitter and FOX forums also lit up with praise for Neil Patrick Harris, the episode’s very fun dance number and the amazing twist - though, some are still scratching their heads over the development. Many are taking the twist at face value, but some are still searching for devious plots meant to wreck the glee club’s chances at the all-important Regionals competition.
The much-anticipated mid-season return of Glee premiered after Tuesday’s American Idol, a new day and time for the musically-themed scripted series. A quick recap of the first half of the season (delivered as usual in quick, bullet-fashion that at times is a bit hard to follow) led immediately into the first few scenes - which featured a hilarious collection of quips and jibes between Will Schuester and Sue Sylvester (Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch).
It only got better from there. Slushies were thrown in faces, relationships were re-arranged (a common theme on Glee), beautiful music was made…and the birth of a brand-new love triangle was witnessed. Read on to get all the juicy details…
-Entertainment Weekly has just named their 10 Best TV Shows of the Decade. Am I the only one who didn’t care for The Comeback?

Glee could may soon be visited by another Broadway star, one that could play Rachel Berry’s doppelganger.
Since Kristin Chenoweth has already made several appearances on the FOX series, it would only seem logical that her Wicked costar would some day cameo as well. After all, Idina Menzel looks like she could fit right in. When Taye Diggs (Idina’s husband and former Rent costar) was asked about a possible appearance, he claimed Menzel would be game for a visit. “I know that she would love [to guest star on Glee].”
So what does Taye think about that resemblence between Lea Michele - formerly of Broadway’s Spring Awakening - and his Tony award-winning spouse? “We knew that existed far, far before the TV world did,” Diggs said.
