"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy gets mad -- and gets even
"Glee" cast members were invited to perform at the Human Rights Campaign dinner attended by President Obama, and they'll get to perform the national anthem at Game 3 of the World Series (because "Glee" and the World Series both air on Fox -- but still, it's a pretty big deal). And show creator Ryan Murphy is fawned over regularly by publications such as Entertainment Weekly where he will soon be quoted calling the show a cultural phenomenon.
And yet, Murphy is not happy. He's still brooding over NBC's decision not to promote a broadcast competitor's new series (which, if it's a cultural phenomenon, would seem to hardly need NBC's help, right?) by allowing the "Glee" cast to perform at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -- the broadcast right to which NBC shells out millions of dollars annually.
So Murphy is creating an episode of "Glee" in which the glee club is denied a spring festival float by their No. 1 enemy, cheerleader coach Sue Sylvester.
This, according to The "Glee" Fan Club at Entertainment Weekly.
