    Only a week later? I think they need more time after that tragedy, especially Lea…

  • Levi

    Sounds to me like the poor guy was always living on borrowed time. it’s a big shame.

  • Cinderella

    Gotta keep that cash flowing, right Ryan Murphy?

    How generous of FOX to delay it ONE week. I mean wow, that is such a huge gap. idiots. One of their main characters passed away and they can’t even be arsed to give the cast and crew more time to grieve. I doubt Lea Michele will be up to film so soon after losing her boyfriend.

    I adree with Nahi. Lea needs more time I think, she just lost the love of her life. I mean she probably needs more time…
