Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff have been best friends for nearly a decade, and their love for each other shows every time they're together. After a hike in La on Thursday, the duo was all smiles as they grabbed a post-workout juice, and Jonathan put on quite a gun show with his bulging biceps. Though he isn't on Glee alongside Lea anymore, Jonathan has told us that he would love to have her guest star on season two of his HBO show, Looking, and if he ever hosts the Oscars, she has to be by his side the whole time. Throughout Lea's tough year after the tragic death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, Jonathan has been a rock for her, which she revealed in her Teen Vogue cover story back in January.

The Fox series Glee has gone through a lot over the past year or so. Series regular Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, sadly died last July and the series has seen record lows in its ratings over this past season. However, the show still has one final season after its current season and creator Ryan Murphy plans on some changes.
Next season will see the show move away from its New York setting and will also jump in time. Murphy hasn’t revealed where the new setting will be but it certainly won’t take place in New York or Lima, where the show started out. He also hasn’t revealed how long of a jump in time there will be but the current season’s finale will apparently have something big happen that sets things up for the final season.
It would seem that the show was probably »

After departing McKinley High to move to New York fulltime for the latter part of this season, the musical dramedy looked destined to end its run in the Big Apple. That won’t be the case, Glee co-creator/executive producer Ryan Murphy said in a press call yesterday. “The final season is its own story in its own location; it is not New York-centric at all,” Murphy said, as reported by TVLine. “It really is a lovely, fitting season that dwells on the original people on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. … We’ll revisit some of the new kids that came and went, there’s a return of [Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester] and [Matthew Morrison's Will Schuester] in a big way.” Related: Ryan Murphy Confirms How ‘Glee’ Was Supposed To End The sixth and final season of Fox‘s Glee will consist of 24 episodes, two of them carried over from this season, »

Glee has a few more episodes before it closes out its fifth season, but producer Ryan Murphy is already thinking ahead. Next season will be the show's last, and on a conference call this week, Murphy told reporters, including Vulture, some huge news about season six. Not only will the two episodes cut from this season be tacked onto next season (for a total of 24 episodes), but also, the entire ending has been altered in light of Finn's (Cory Monteith) death. Instead, the finale will be about Rachel and Mr. Schue. "It returns them to their origins, how they felt about each other when they were all much younger and everything was idyllic," said Murphy. Here's what we know so far. The Final Season Won't Be New York-Centric "The final season is really its own story and its own location," Murphy said. "While the New York stuff will be alive, »

After Cory Monteith’s unexpected passing last summer, Ryan Murphy knew he had to change directions with Glee. Suddenly, it felt wrong to be hanging around the high school. “The big idea, the big plan of what the series was gonna be and how it was gonna end radically changed when Cory passed away,” Glee boss Ryan Murphy told Vulture. Finn would have taken over the glee club while Rachel would pursue her dreams in New York City. When Cory passed away, “that part of the story as we imagined it, it just didn’t make any sense anymore, and it felt bad, to be quite honest.” So producers decided to reset the show leading up to the final season. They’d close the McKinley High chapter with the 100th episode, and start fresh with all of the core cast relocating to New York. Creatively, Murphy’s happy. On Monday afternoon, »

Glee's sixth and final season is starting to take shape. Following the July death of star Cory Monteith -- whose Finn Hudson was the cornerstone of the show's Ohio-set high school storyline -- showrunner Ryan Murphy shifted the Fox musical to New York full-time. The move, he says, has rejuvenated the series that he admits stumbled a bit at the start of its current fifth season when it attempted to hold on to its McKinley High School setting. "The big plan of what the series was going to be and how it was going to end was radically changed when

Glee is to return to the UK in early July, it has been confirmed.
Sky1 announced on Twitter that the Fox musical comedy will return from its midseason break in the first week of July.
— Sky 1 (@sky1) April 14, 2014
The channel last aired the current fifth season's eighth episode 'Previously Unaired Christmas' in December.
Fox will air the 16th episode of the season 'Tested' on Tuesday (April 15).
A possible extension to its sixth and final run could see Glee air a supersized 24-episode season, but this has yet to be confirmed. »
Cher hit up Washington, D.C. this week on her tour, and this review will tell you a lot about how the flow of a Cher show goes, with a great deal of monologues and history from the Queen. One thing that stuck out a bit was Cher seeming to throw some shade at Mother Monster about why she talks to her audience. “Gaga doesn’t do that. I’d rather stand and talk than have some chick vomit on me. Call me old fashioned. I’m just that funny kind of gal.”

For the first time, Fox will air less Glee. The network has trimmed its season order of the musical comedy from 22 to 20 episodes, the network confirmed.
This marks the first time since the show premiered five years ago that it will finish the season with a trimmed order. THR reported that the reason for the shorter order was the production hiatus the cast and crew took last year after the sudden passing of star Cory Monteith. Fox says that’s the reason too. Yet it’s tough to ignore that Glee ratings are also spiraling — the most recent Tuesday episode »

Glee may have recently hit 100 episodes, but the celebration is over. Fox has reduced the current fifth season from 22 episodes to 20, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The decision stems from the production hiatus at the start of the season following the death of star Cory Monteith. THR says the network might film the two cut episodes early to help promote a possible 24-episode final season next year.

The curtain is coming down a little bit early on this season of Glee. Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and the rest of our musically inclined characters will continue to sing and dance their hearts out on Glee—but their season has been short. The hit musical comedy will finish out its fifth year on the air with a total of 20 episodes, as opposed to the traditional order of 22 that the series has produced for the past four seasons. The Hollywood Reporter cites that Glee's shortened season can be attributed to the production hiatus the cast and crew took earlier this season, due to the sudden passing of star Cory Monteith. After shooting a two-part Beatles tribute premiere, and the emotional tribute episode »

Glee, Season 5, Episode 13, “New Directions″
Written by Brad Falchuk

Good news, Glee fans. The Bermuda Triangle school year at McKinley is actually over. Seniors Artie, Sam, Tina, Blaine, Becky, and even Brittany, back from her imprisonment at MIT, have all flipped their tassel over to the other side. They are moving on, but not before leaving us with one more iconic moment. “Don’t Stop Believin’” was quite obviously the only song to end the Glee Club’s five year run and this version does an amazing job of pulling the original characters and the newbies together in a single, meaningful act. While Kurt, played by Chris Colfer, lends his voice as the male lead and shows off his vocal range in the process, “Don’t Stop Believin’” is missing something without Finn. The chemistry between Kurt and Rachel »

I’ve never seen an episode of ABC’s Nashville, but I’ve been hearing so much about the closeted gay character Will Lexington this season, played by one of my favorite multi-slashes (actor/model/singer) Chris Carmack, that I decided to give it a go, especially since it was supposed to be a pivotal week for Will.
But before we get to Will, let’s talk a bit about Connie Britton who plays country queen bee Rayna James on this show. How fabulous is Britton? This is an actress who can move effortlessly from Spin City to Friday Night Lights to American Horror Story. And … she spent a year studying in China during her freshman year at college with NY senator and faboo ally Kirsten Gillibrand).
Anyway, her character is walking through Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, talking about being blacklisted, and how country radio doesn’t like controversial artists. »
It's not easy being a Gleek. At least, it wasn't earlier this season. Aside from the sudden and tragic death of star Cory Monteith, and the subsequent sudden and tragic death of his character Finn Hudson, the Fox musical comedy (Tuesdays, 8/7c, Fox) felt a bit, well, off-key in the first part of Season 5. The story lines started to feel either predictable or haphazard, the music was bland and most of the theme episodes like The Beatles two-part tribute or "Previously Unaired Christmas," lacked a real purpose or message.
Thankfully, the show returned from its extended hiatus re-energized and looking — and more importantly sounding — like its old self. After weeks of letting Season 5 collect virtual dust on the DVR, here are eight reasons why it's time to ...

Cory Monteith in one of his last screen roles may be the best thing going for McCanick, a tired cop drama that recycles predictable narrative elements almost to the point of meaninglessness and then substitutes wildly improbable developments in place of actual originality. A brief theatrical lifespan may set the stage for more productive ancillary activity on smaller screens, if word of mouth doesn't prove too dissuasive. David Morse stars as Eugene "Mack" McCanick, a weary, middle-aged Philadelphia police detective slogging toward retirement, who works the narcotics beat with his much younger partner Floyd (Mike Vogel). Floyd's planning to move

When it comes to social snaps, double the stars means double the fun. This week, we saw Pda from Jessica Simpson and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, and a silly moment with Chrissy Teigen and John Legend; cute duos like Khloé Kardashian and Mason Disick, Taylor Swift and her "hero" Ina Garten, and BFFs Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza having fun; and some sweet throwback photos featuring Lea Michele with her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith, and their costar Dianna Agron. The biggest group of stars was the Pretty Little Liars cast, who re-created Ellen DeGeneres's epic Oscars selfie, though one other photo may top it: Gisele Bündchen and a teeny tiny puppy.

Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps, Sr. has died, family members have confirmed to various media outlets. The church has long made headlines for its anti-gay protests and picketing soldiers' funerals. The church protested the funerals of slain gay college student Matthew Shepard, Glee star Cory Monteith, film critic Roger Ebert and Apple founder Steve Jobs. The church also recently said they had planned to boycott concerts by pop singer Lorde. Phelps' son, Timothy, told Kansas City affiliate Wibw that his father died just before midnight.

For Glee’s 100th episode, Brian Murphy pulled out all the stops, reuniting the remaining McKinley High students, the NYC transplants and the other graduates who’ve scattered around the country – as well as some beloved guest stars.
Back in the New Directions rehearsal room, students past and present get together to mourn the end of the glee club as they know it through song. They’re tasked with reinventing songs they’ve performed in the past. Before they get to their individual assignments, they do a rendition of "Raise Your Glass," led by Kristin Chenoweth back in her role of drunk Broadway star April Rhodes.
Upon leaving the choir room, Puck (Mark Salling) and Quinn (Dianna Agron) have an awkward interaction in the hallway. It looks like the two could be looking to start up their relationship again when in walks Quinn’s new boyfriend Biff Macintosh »
Not a single mechanic appears in the police thriller McCanick, which borrows from its dirty-nailed, homonymous hero an ethos of brusque masculinity.
The word "mechanic" does flicker briefly in director Josh C. Waller's film, though. It's the one instance of humor in an otherwise numbingly inert series of dirty-cop clichés that abruptly builds to an ephemerally poignant climax.
Among Glee fans, though, McCanick is more noteworthy for being the last production Cory Monteith worked on before his sudden death in 2013. Monteith plays a gay hustler named Simon who's seen mostly in flashbacks.
