In light of the tragic passing of beloved GLEE cast member Cory Monteith, the series’ executive producers, 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting Company have jointly decided to delay the start of production of GLEE until early August. Season Five of GLEE will now premiere on Thursday, Sept. 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.  No further details are available at this time.

    I thought I had seen Jane Lynch listed in the program guide as a guest on one of the late night talk shows this week, but now I can’t find her listed. They must have rescheduled.

    Actually, I see now she was on Craig Ferguson Friday night (that’s what I was thinking about) and I have that episode saved on my Tivo.
