NBC has rescinded their invitation to Glee to perform on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade because Fox is a competitor. Look, the Thanksgiving Day parade is meaningless and all, and I don't really need to see my favorite Glee actors lip-synching on a Macy's seal in the freezing cold or anything, but that's still messed-up, and a pretty dumb policy for NBC to have. What, are they not going to let anybody from the Disney Channel perform ever again? Or ban the Spongebob float? No they're not, which is why It makes no sense.
Those Friends people are just doing employment gangbusters lately. Matthew Perry is the latest one to try to return to the workforce -- though I can't understand why, considering how rich he must be -- with a sitcom he's shopping to networks about a second-rate sports arena manager who reevaluates his life after he turns 40. Between this and Men of a Certain Age premiering soon, can we make up a derogatory term about confident older men now? A male "cougar" counterpart? I've been tentatively calling them "Jerkys" because they tend to end up tanned and sinewy, but I don't have to be the boss of this.

And NCIS continues to get more than 20 million viewers per week, even though I still have not met a single one of them.
