Glee returns from it’s hiatus tonight on Fox at 9:28 pm (returning to 9:00pm slot next week). And I am thrilled to be dusting off my character shoes and returning to musical theatre as well…vicariously through the cast members of Glee. (I hung up my character shoes long ago.) But with Glee’s new day and time slot, the hit musical comedy television show will go up against Lost at the same time. Will it be good news or bad news for Glee?
All is not lost for Glee (excuse the bad pun). Lost will still have it’s viewers and Glee will have theirs. Just for the record, I have never watched one episode of Lost. I am not even sure what it is about except for a group of people stranded on an island. Is the Skipper there too, a millionaire and his wife? See how much I know about the show. What a Gleek I am. So I don’t think there will even be a competition and if by some strange reason someone is both a fan of island adventures as well as teenage musical comedies, there is always TiVo or the VCR. (Does anyone even own one anymore? Oh, wait, I do.)
So whether you are a Gleek or a Lan (lost fan- I made it up), enjoy your Tuesday evening however you choose to spend it. And for those who are indecisive I say unbiasedly- why not get lost tonight…in a high school musical dramedy.
