'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy responds to cast being pulled from Macy's parade

Glee creator Ryan Murphy says he gets why NBC asked Macy’s to pull the cast of his Fox show out of its Thanksgiving Day parade: “I completely understand NBC’s position, and look forward to seeing a Jay Leno float,” he told EW.com. Sources said yesterday that NBC asked parade organizers to rescind an offer for the cast of the musical comedy to appear in the annual holiday event, which the network broadcasts. While the parade has featured performers from rival networks’ properties in the past — such as American Idol singers or High School Musical actors — sources said featuring an entire cast would amount to too much promotion.

    Except the NBC execs are dumb enough to say “hey, good idea on the Leno float thing!”

      lol, so true.

    • PMD

      I thought that too when I read it!!! LOL!

      I think a giant chin balloon would be better.

      • Nikkie

        Lol, I totally agree! Although I would wonder how to do that without making look like a giant butt ballon.

  • Mandy

    Take that NBC! :)

  • Bobby’s Robot

    It’s one asinine decision after another for NBC execs. They should all be fired.

    • Jen

      Except for Jack Donaghy, of course.

      • Nate

        And the line between fiction and reality continues to blur…

      • to Jen

        Love it!

  • Alex

    Nice one, Ryan Murphy. That response was full of SNAP!
    I can only shake my head at NBC, what a bunch of idiots.

  • Quan

    I heart Ryan Murphy

  • paige

    NBC frustrates me

  • flicketyflack

    Reason #159 that barring the ‘Glee’ cast from the T-day parade was dumb: the barring was obviously going to leak to make NBC look stupid and threatened.

    Well, I guess I will be watching the parade on CBS from now on!

    And…NBC takes another step in their quest to becoming the most hated network in the universe. Of course, who can blame them in this situation. NBC has a ton of their own great programming to promote, like, LIFE and SOUTHLAND.

      Life ='(

      • Ally

        The fact that that TV show was cancelled after two seasons while Everybody Loves Raymond survived is one of the greatest injustics EVER.

      • D

        Um, Raymond was on CBS.

    • Sarah

      Oh I miss Life! :(

  • Lorie

    Ryan’s comment is awesome. ROFLMAO!

  • Sue

    That’s ok, I didn’t want to waste time watching the parade anyway.

  • Marie

    The cast of GLEE is about the only thing that could have got me watching the Parade. Or, NBC for that matter considering all of my viewership goes to ABC, Fox, CBS, and the CW anyway. Thank you, NBC, for proving to the nth degree that there is nothing worth watching on your network.

    RRRRRRrreaaaarrrrrwwww!! Cat fight!!
