Don’t you just love it when networks do theme-weeks or nights? (Yes, that was sarcasm.) Like that night years ago when NBC had all of their Thursday night programs involved in a New York City blackout storyline?
Fox has something similar up its sleeve. Inspired by the success of Glee, a full week of programming on Fox will find nearly every show on the network engaging in song-and-dance numbers. From Thursday April 29th through Wednesday May 5th, shows like Bones, Fringe, House, The Simpsons, and more will feature musical performances woven into their episodes.
This sounds like a horribly cheesy idea on the surface. No doubt about that. But on the other hand, maybe Fox’s shows will take this as an opportunity to really challenge themselves creatively and come up with some clever ways of incorporating music into their eps.
We can only hope.
