Glorious ‘Glee’ to Do Oprah
What brings joy into the lives of millions of viewers? Broadcasting legend and TV icon Oprah Winfrey.
The most beloved and influential figure in media is planning a big ado for the cast of another rising television phenomenon known to get its fans giddy: Glee.
In anticipation of the run of new episodes beginning April 13, The Oprah Winfrey Show will devote the full hour to Gleeking out on April 7.
So what does the big O have in store for us Gleeks? Everything our superfan hearts could ask for and more!
An O-show insider tells EW, “Highlights will include interviews with the entire cast and series creator Ryan Murphy, never-before-seen backstage video, and, natch, a show-stopping performance.”
The Oprah episode will follow the Glee cast’s performance at the White House Easter celebration and egg roll. Then the following week Glee returns to round out its memorable and smashing first season with nine new episodes. The Gleeks will inherit the earth soon, my precious. Soon.
If you want to get going on your hype early, Oprah.com will launch its special section devoted to the Glee phenomenon March 29. Web Gleeks can click over to get character guides, show I.Q. tests, behind-the-scenes photo galleries, and more.
