NBC BUMPED GLEE FROM THE MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE
Wow this sucks, E! ONLINE sources confirm that the cast of Fox's hit series Glee will not take part in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade next month on NBC.
It look like both NBC and FOX have talks about the Glee stars appearing and performing in the parade but of course NBC had cold feet and decided to say no. Macy's did make a offer to the Glee cast, but never told NBC first. I feel if Macy's wanted them in the parade NBC should have honor this request. This probably would of give NBC Thanksgiving coverage of the parade a boost in there ratings, because you'll have alot for teens, fans of Glee and the faithful FOX viewers watching.
NBC did point out that the network never promotes castmembers from competing programming, and that the Idol singers performed only after they had moved on from the Fox reality series to become recording artists.In the past 6 years FOX stars such as FOX American Idols stars have perform in the parade..FOX reality is still part of the FOX network...SO WHY WAS GLEE LEFT OUT??
I hope NBC change their minds.
