HATE, HATE Hate the affair, it ads nothing to the story line and is a total waste of time. Need to focus more on Karen's performances, which are always great, especially when she was with her chorus friends. THAT is why we watch, not for the petty sidebars they spend way too much time on. ellis is a waste of time, so is tom's love life and julia's actions are just stupid. why do we care about any of them especially how cruel Ivy is to karen. only one you like in whole show is karen, writers need to FOCUS or show will not make it.

Loved the "showcase" presentation to potential backers. Anyone who has experienced any sort of Musical Theater or Theater knows who stressful it can be.
I was broken hearted for Julia's son..............I hope she doesn't have any more children! She doesn't deserve a family.

I thought this was a good episode. However I am getting so sick of Ivy. She whines that Derek treats her bad and now that her mom does too but yet Ivy treats Karen like crap. Ivy is one of those people that can not take it when she feels someone is being mean but yet she is worse than any body in the way that she treats Karen.
I really hope Ivy looses the lead.
Julia made a huge mistake in agreeing with Tom that Michael should be fired. I think that will be the start of the end of the musical. He was fantastic in that role. Tom is starting to annoy me because he is not much better than Ivy, he will fight to keep her as Marilyn when in reality she should not have the role and then he wanted Michael fired because he was sleeping with Julia. Julia is a big girl and should have handled the situation better.
I see the dilemma that Karen had, she wanted to stay for the workshop as if they every needed a new Marilyn she knew if she left the workshop she would blow her chance, but on the other hand it dose not look like they will every replace Ivy so if Karen met the record exec she could be on her way to a music career....

@Ed seriously? You can't tell the difference between the power and depth of Florence's voice and then katherine McPhee's? There is no emotion in her voice at all. She could be singing any song. Like the AV Club review said- she can't even whoo convincingly. She is not good enough for an entire room to stand up and take notice, or a record guy say 'i love you'. She just sounds like a girl with a nice voice.

For me, the biggest waste of the show is casting the hyper-talented musical theatre performer Brian d'Arcy James as Julia's dorky chemistry teacher husband. I seriously hope we get to see him sing, but I dread the dream/fantasy sequence that will necessarily provoke it.

Yes, Ellis is REALLY annoying........

What I don't get is everyone harping on Julia's affair.......It's not like this hasn't been done on TV before.........Good lord think back to the 80's with Dallas and Dynasty............

No, I don't condone having affairs.......but it's a fact of life they happen.......AND in just the way it is being portrayed on the show.........

You have the remote right there beside you........if you don't like it change the channel.............

The affair between Julia and Micheal didn't bother me. I don't think it hurt the story line either. The heartfelt reaction from her son, at the end was very moving and drove the point home that Julia realized the affair was a no no.

I TOTALLY agree. This plot line is stupid and we as viewers deserve better. It's an insult to our intelligence. They need to fire the writers of this show if they cannot come up with a better story line than this affair. I don't want to watch a soap opera. It really disgusted me last week to see this. I love Debra Messing. And I want to love her character also. She is the main reason I started watching this show.

I am glad to see I am not the only one that has stopped watching this waste of an hour. Do you think it will be cancelled soon?
