Would you believe it if we told you Lea Michele has based Glee's go-getting, super-alpha female on...Lea Michele?!
During Wednesday's visit to The Oprah Winfrey Show, the cast sat down in—get this—a set that looked just like a classroom to chat with daytime's reigning queen about the phenomenal success of the show, the music we all love so much and, yes, the unstoppable force that is Jane Lynch.

House It's spinoff time, yo, and Nurse Jeffrey is getting his own gig...as an iPhone "appiseries." Hey, it's a nice little way to pass the time between season finale and season premiere, don't ya think?
Sons of Anarchy Can we get an amen, because for the first time in months, there's some SOA scoop to pass along! The Chicago Tribune's Maureen Ryan reports Paula Malcomson of Caprica fame has scored a mayjah eight-episode gig on the gritty FX staple. Holler!
Fox Flops: We'd like to extend our deepest condolences to Fox's Sons of Tucson and 'Til Death, both of which quietly passed away late Monday night. Fox announced plans to air Death's funeral finale on Sunday, June 20, while the remaining episodes of SOT will run throughout the summer.

Yay?
