Glee’s post-Super Bowl episode won’t be a special artist tribute

I think the McKinley football team should perform at the halftime show...

Apparently Glee is finally starting to get the tribute episode blues. Although rumours have been swirling that Glee‘s post-Super Bowl episode on February 6, 2011, would be a love-in to either Bruce Springsteen or Michael Jackson, TV columnist Michael Ausiello is now reporting that the show’s producers are strongly reconsidering their original plan:

Word is Ryan Murphy & Co. are leaning toward staging a “regular” episode of Glee after SB XLV featuring music from a variety of artists rather than a stunt-heavy hour, a-la Britney and Madonna.

Of course, given that Glee will likely draw its biggest audience in its two-year history, you can bet there will be at least a few bells and whistles.

What do you think, gleeks? Were you looking forward to a splashy tribute episode following the Super Bowl, or are you thankful that we’re finally getting a tribute time-out? While I loved “The Power of Madonna,” I wasn’t as fond of “Britney/Brittany,” so I think it might be wise for the Glee crew to take a break from tributes for a while. I’m hoping we can just focus on good stories and good music that fits in with the stories, rather than more episodes where the musical choices drives the plotlines. Do you agree, or are you itching for more tributes?

    Yeah, I’m kinda sick of the tributes myself.

    The tributes are fine, just maybe less frequent would be better. I’m glad they’re starting to go back to the characters’ actual lives, though. We haven’t seen anyone outside of school who wasn’t part of Will’s life in at least three episodes.

    Totally agree with I Love Gay Sharks (and kind of in love with that name).
    The show is definitely getting back to what I loved about it.
