And Mercedes is telling you, she's not going.
Finally some of the background characters (other than Brittany) have been allowed to shine. Tuesday night's episode gave us more of Mike Chang and Mercedes, who both got stepped up storylines.
First off, how adorable is that Mike Chang? And yes, you have to call him by his full name. FULL POST

After the wildly successful "Glee," what does one do for an encore?
A twisted, not-for-the-kids horror television series, of course.
Before "Glee," executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk were best known for the FX series "Nip/Tuck," and anyone familiar with that knows it wasn't exactly family viewing, either.

I am officially back on board this week.
Last week's "Glee" didn't move me at all. This week was as different as night and day.
The kids are putting on a production of "West Side Story," which is absolutely perfect for this crew. Kurt wants to play Tony so badly he can't stand it, but can he pull off the strong masculinity needed for the role? FULL POST

Following the season 3 premiere of "Glee" on Tuesday, "Sesame Street" spoofed the Fox show choir series with its own version designed to teach kids about the letter "G."
"Sesame Street" nails the show from the start, from Mr. Schuester's puppet alter ego Mr. Gooster to the berry-colored version of Rachel Berry. When "Mr. Goo" asks the glee club to sing the "G" sound together, the Berry double mutters, "I'll probably drown you all out anyway."

I am about to use a word I thought never to utter in reference to a "Glee" season premiere: "Meh."
First of all, I almost forgot the show was coming back, as these days it appears to be all "X Factor" all the time over at Fox. But when I tuned in, I at least expected to feel some excitement that summertime was over and class was back in session at McKinley High.
Well, not so much.

"Glee's" Dot Marie Jones predicted that co-star Jane Lynch would kill it and the viewers seem to agree: Lynch, although she didn't win an Emmy, earned accolades from critics as the host of the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards.
The "Glee" star opened with a self-aware love song to TV, complete with a cameo from "Parks and Recreation" fan fave Ron Swanson and arguably one of the best segments of the opener, a little repartee with the "Mad Men" cast.
Lynch kept her lines tactful, but they still landed: After "Modern Family" kept picking up awards, she quipped, "Welcome back to the 'Modern Family' awards." Following a bit with Ricky Gervais, who was still riffing on his Golden Globes debacle from earlier this year, Lynch responded, "Oh poor little Ricky Gervais, someone didn't get enough hugs from Mommy and now it's Hollywood's fault."
