Via the always reliable Michael Ausiello at TVLine:
Heads up, Twitter: You’re seconds away from exploding. Sources confirm to me exclusively that Glee is doing a February sweeps episode that’s Justin Biebercentric.
Details are still sketchy, but I’m told the episode — tentatively scheduled to air on Feb. 15 — will feature the cast covering several of the teen phenom’s songs. Bieber himself will also figure into the episode’s plot, although there are no plans for him to appear in the flesh. At least not as of this writing.
What’s most disappointing about this news? It appears that Ryan Murphy has abandoned the concept of Glee as a show for adults. In interviews, Murphy has admitted that he’s begun to tone down some of the double entendres to make the show safe for the younger set. Not a great development if you ask me.
Ryan, didn’t you say you’d be laying off the theme shows for the rest of the season? Dang.
What do you think?
