USA Today's Robert Bianco agrees that tonight's GLEE is can't miss: "Don't tune in late, because GLEE is at its humorous best in tonight's opening moments. With tongue firmly in cheek, it addresses and mocks most of the summer's Internet-fed rumors and complaints. Have you heard that one of the cast members may be difficult to work with, or no one likes it when Matthew Morrison raps, or some dismiss the musical performances as Auto-Tuned karaoke numbers that 'sound like they come from a drag queen's iPod'? Apparently, so have the writers."
After more than disappointing numbers for Fox's hot new soap, LONE STAR, last night, the network will be anxiously waiting on Wednesday morning to find out how many people tuned into its other soap, GLEE. Will you be watching?
