The number one television show right now is Glee. The show is fun and the characters are fantastic, but the plots SUCK. I wholeheartedly believe that without the musical aspect of the show that it would fail. Not to mention Tuesday's (4/27/2010) episode what entirely too Broadway-esk to keep a mainstream audience tuned in. I believe the continued success of Glee rides on the gimmicky themed episodes such as the Madonna episode that aired on April 20th, 2010 and the much anticipated (by me) Lady Gaga (my first blog was Lady Gaga fan themed) themed episode.
It is interesting to see a show that I believe only has value on the ditsy blond cheer leader's (Brittany) stupid remarks and the groups musical numbers, be hugely successful. There are so many shows struggling on television today that have much better writing.
So I turn to you readers: Why do you think Glee is so popular?
