Glee Shooting a Whitney Houston Tribute

According to E! Online, Glee is currently shooting a tribute episode to Whitney Houston that will include 8 songs from her catalog.

A reliable show source told E the show “will not be a typical tribute..”  and that, “unlike the show’s Madonna and Michael Jackson episodes, the Whitney tribute is more of a “character piece” that focuses on Glee‘s graduating seniors having a real hard time letting go.”

Today, Lea Michele tweeted: “Starting a new episode today. A very special tribute to one of the worlds most amazing singers. Very excited about this one.”

Can I say UGH? Double UGGHH?? Triple UGGGHHH???  Last summer, when Creator Ryan Murphy was talking up the season, he promised there would only be ONE Season 3 tribute episode. But now there will be at least THREE.

There was the Michael Jackson episode a few weeks ago.  Production just wrapped on Episode 16,  a Saturday Night Fever tribute, and it looks like the very next episode will be this Whitney thing.   It’s only been a couple of weeks since she passed–did the producers just throw this show together?

I know the ratings are down, but this is getting a little desperate. Whatever, Ryan.
