Tonight's cuppa: Barry's decaf tea with whole milk (decadent, I know!)

On Tuesday and today, Thursday, I headed to Hollywood to Paramount Studios to do a set visit to the upcoming Fox series "Glee," which premieres with its pilot episode on Tuesday, May 19, in conjunction with "American Idol," then doesn't return to the schedule until fall.

(UPDATE: Click here for my "Glee" feature story, and here for an interview with star Jenna Ushkowitz.)

I took a break from watching musical numbers being shot on set to head outside and commandeer an empty golf cart in back of the soundstage to do my regular Thursday appearance on Shaun Daily's TV Talk show on Click here for that — I come in at about the 25ish-minute mark.

After you listen, you may want to hop to the next post, where I share some pictures, both from the Discovery Networks upfront on Wednesday, and from Paramount on Tuesday.

In the episode, the boys and the girls in the high-school glee clubGlee_lea_michele_as__rache_berry__026abrF at the center of the show are competing to see which gender gets to perform the opening number in a competition.
