Meet The CW’s Answer To Glee

Described as “Glee meets Bad Santa,” a new project from The CW is hoping to score its own musical-dancing dramedy. At the helm: Bandslam‘s writer Todd Graff and producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, guaranteeing the low-rated network will do better on GLAAD’s scorecard in the coming season.

      As much as I love Glee, I will always admit that it’s not smartly nor cleverly written. I still love the musical numbers (even though there are many people who hate how the show “butchers” numbers- I do feel SOMETIMES the show one-ups the original artist), but if it weren’t one of the only truly successful musical dramadeys to ever make it past season one on television, it wouldn’t have much merit to it at all.

      HOWEVER-

      This new show sounds like it will be TERRIBLE. The fact alone that it is CW makes it kinda sketchy as it is, but the fact that it is Glee meets Bad Santa, it just doesn’t sound like it has much going for it at all except for possibly a shock factor.

      Gotta love how one persons makes a success in a genre, and suddenly other people decide they can do it, too.

      I think that Todd Graff was one of the producers of Hot In Cleveland so maybe there’s hope.

      Yawn, get back to me when it’s the actors portraying Puck, Sam, & Mr. Shue stripping for a photo-spread, THEN you’ll have my attention! ;)

      Anyone else pissed that we can’t get gay themed “sexy” shots like these? For a show built up by the gay community, with a flamboyant tone, we sure aren’t getting a lot back.

      Oh, those copy cat spin offs, like “the Talk” CBS’ answer to “the View.” Happens all the time. Just like the rampage on vampire shows after “Twilight.” I’m a gleek and I’ll stick with that show. Too much of a good thing can be bad.

      The girl on the right looks like a whore. Why is she touching the other woman? To prop up the sleazy straight guy fetish for girl-girl action, no doubt.

      Glee is the most mind-numbing crap on TV since Friends. Photocopies are always inferior to the originals. And it’s on the CW. Therefore this will also suck.

      @Queer Supremacist: It also is NOT gay friendly! They will have str8 male sexual fantasies of two girls snogging, but Kurt is as sexually potent as Mr. Rodgers. Further the upcoming Rocky Horror tribute is going to neuter any gay references, such as “transexual Transylvania” becomes “sensational Transylvania”, Kurt gets to be the most NON-sexual character in Riff-Raff, Dr. Frankenfurter is being played by a GIRL so all gayness is gone there, which automatically makes Rocky himself straight and not bi as in the original. Gay friendly show my ass.
