My Direct TV box says, " 'Showmance' The club performs for the first time in front of the school population. Series Premiere."

I can't remember if that happened in the pilot or not. I would think they are going to replay it, but either way I am EXCITED.

That's weird - did the pilot air in May and tonight is the first episode of the series?

I really enjoyed this show and am looking forward to seeing the new episode. I know tv tries not to use minors when possible, but does anyone else think these "kids" look way older than teenagers? Especially the lead girl and the boy in the wheelchair.

And, yes, I suspect the wife may be faking the pregnancy.

They are way older than teens ... the lead girl is about 21 (I think ... I looked this up back in May) and the football singer guy is like 28.

I watched the last 20 minutes and I loved it! I didn't think I'd like it because it was so hyped up this summer, but I really did enjoy it. I sang along. :

Subbing and wil be participating regularly because I LOVE this show. It's brilliant.

T pep rally scene tonight? SO awkward, but I had to watch it because it was so funny. Everything is spot on - the music, the camera work, the acting, the writing. Absolutely adore it.

And, it's on after SYTYCD? BLISS.

Last night was awesome! I love the drama and the plot lines so far. My only complaint? That it's not a 2 hour show!

I loved it! : Very different from when I was in high school choir, however. Celibacy club, wth? I've always loved Jane Lynch from the Christopher Guest movies. I howl at every one of her lines: "My first thought was they should all be taken into foster care."

But OMG, I was horrified that I let my 7-yo DD watch it. She'll have to stick to HSM from now on. Bad mommy!

This episode was ok for me. Parts of it were awkward.

I'm definitely looking forward to more. It has potential.

Agreed, agreed and agreed! I was thinking how perfect of a TV evening it was TMZ, SYTYCD and Glee! All in a row!

I love this show. It has so much potential. The "pregnant" wife made me cringe. I could've done without the football guy and the singing girl date scene. I sense that the writers are trying to make a point like, oh he's so popular and look, he has issues too! But yea, there are just some things that are TMI.

I love Glee!

I was hoping for a really cool performance and didn't get it though. I was definitely cringing during the "Push It" routine.

I really like the Glee Club coach but can't really see why he'd be with his wife. They seem like polar opposites.

Other than that, I love the show and am looking forward to Wednesday!

It's like The Office for me, or at least Michael in The Office. I don't want to watch him, it's so uncomfortable watching him, and yet I can't NOT watch him. Same thing with that routine - they did it *perfectly* to get that awkward feeling, and then the students reaction....AWESOME. Jane Lynch, brilliant. Just love the whole thing.

I was not expecting to love it as much as I did. OMG. I LOVE it. It had me : I thought the Pep Rally was supposed to have that awkward edge. I really enjoyed it.

And I swear, if Fox cancels this I will show up at their studios with a pitchfork and torch.

Oh, it was supposed to be awkward, and I think it was done brilliantly - it easily could have been overdone, but they seem to know exactly where to stop.

I usually find out about great shows when they are in season 2 or 3, so psyched to watch it first run!

I heard the interview too. He said he was glad to have a Catholic upbringing, because it taught him about theatrics. That really made me laugh, because we are a theatrical people. LOL

This totally makes sense to me, as a member of both groups, too.

LOVE Glee! I was sort of worrying that they had so many evil women roles, but then again, most of the people are messed up. I don't get how the creator says he thinks kids can watch it, though (he was saying in EW that it's nice to do this rather than Nip/Tuck). I would never let an 8yo watch it! But *I* enjoy it SO much! This was me in school. Singing On My Own for a school show and popular girls shoving me into lockers for daring to just be me and be happy about it... ah good times. Now I'm kinda scared I got recruited (as a teacher) to be in my school's pep rally next week. What WILL the dance team do?

OK I can finally post here. We finally watched the pilot and the first episode. Late night last night, 2nd epi will have to wait for tonight. We love it. My 14 y.o. 9th grade marching band daughter adores it.

Great, great cast.

I also can't see why Will is married to Terri.
