Matthew Morrison on Lindsay Lohan and GLEE: ‘The work got done’
Morrison said that production on GLEE's third season will wrap May 11 and that there will definitely not be a Will/Emma wedding before season’s end. He wasn’t even sure whether the nuptials will occur next season.

“I have no idea. We don’t even know — I mean, the show’s back next season, but we don’t even know which cast members will actually be back,” he said. “I think I’ll be back, but some of the kids — we’re trying to figure out what we’re going to do with that.”

In fact, the move by Hulu toward the new model -- called authentication because viewers would have to log in with their cable or satellite TV account number -- was behind the move last week by Providence Equity Partners to cash out of Hulu after five years, these sources said.

And it's not just Hulu making it tougher for cable-cutters to stream shows and other content.

  1. I only really watch one soap, EastEnders, so I'm very happy that it won 'Best Soap' :D

    Glad that Jo Joyner and Alison King won an acting award each, but Hollyoaks should have won 'Best Villain' and Pat's death on EE should have won 'Best Exit' or 'Best Episode'.
