Glee-Less: Week 1

There’s no more music. The dancing has died. Despite my hope (and irate phone calls) that Cablevision would reach an agreement with News Corp. in time for last nights’ Glee “Rocky Horror Picture Show” episode, the blackout lingers.

Of course, I will watch the episode tonight online, but it’s not the same as enjoying it along with the rest of the world (sans Cablevision customers). I’ve tried to close my eyes to the headlines that blare: “Glee ‘Rocky Horror’ Episode Wins Tuesday Night.” But the urge to YouTube “Time Warp” is growing.

I’m hoping this will be the only week I must endure the pain of missing Glee. Cablevision made a last-ditch attempt to restore service today, with an offer to pay for carriage at a rate on par with its larger rival Time Warner. No word yet if News Corp. will accept the deal, but I’m not holding my breath.

And so my journey in a Glee-less world begins. Each week I will recount how I spend the hour between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Tuesday nights. Maybe I can reconnect with friends. Well not my FiOs or Time Warner Friends, because they will all be home, on their couches, smiling smugly that they opted for the high-speed fiber-optic network.

This week, to fill the Glee-void, I decided to use opportunity to evoke the Halloween Spirit with the movie Practical Magic, which aired on ABC Family after Melissa & Joey. I figured if there is anyone that can replace Rachel and Finn its Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. Wrong! I’m not going to go into a review of the 1999 movie that is falsely deemed a romantic comedy, but don’t bother Netflixing it.

Luckily Glee will take a break next week, returning on Nov. 9, giving Cablevision a little more time to reach an agreement. Of course you sports fans (all one of you that read this site) will probably miss the World Series. But hey, baseball doesn’t have singing and dancing!

Are you too pining over the loss of Glee? What are you watching in its place? Come commiserate.
