Tasty TV Treats: the flava of Britney, Barney and Ava

Glee "It's Britney, bitch" is an understatement of her TV takeover this week. Not only is she laying down the law in her debut as an X Factor judge, Britney Spears' music is also taking a front row seat in this weeks Glee episode. Britney S. Pearce is once again bringing out her inner Britney Spears to inspire her next move in life. As a huge Britney fan, I cannot wait to see Glee rock more of Britney's fabulous music, as a Glee fan I'm not sure why doing another Britney episode is going to help ratings or further a storyline. After the premiere episode Thursday, it's confirmed that we will be seeing Rachel and Kurt trying to make it in New York while still checking in on the McKinley High Glee club. Of course no matter where the Glee kids are they are always singing and dancing in all their synchronized-perfection glory. Although I am loving Kate Hudson as Rachel's newest nemesis and watching Unique work it on stage like no one is watching, I need to see a few more episodes before I give my thumbs up to this new format. For now here is a sneak peek of this week's episode and the song list for Glee's second tribute episode to the Queen of fabulousness — Britney.

Britney 2.0 Song List:
"Gimme More"
"Born to Make You Happy/Sometimes"
"Oops!....I Did it Again"

How I Met Your Mother This season premiere, airing Sept. 24, is all about weddings and not just anyone's wedding but the lengen — dary bachelor himself Barney Stinson. We left Season 7 with the not so shocking realization that Barney and Robin were getting married in the future. The premiere of Season 8 has another not so shocking start — Barney running from his wedding. The real shocker is Barney is involved in not just one but two weddings on premiere night. We also see Barney in the current timeline planning his wedding with Quinn, complete with bridesmaids Lily and Robin ... awkward anyone? Besides bridesmaids duties Lily also has new motherhood duties, with the birth of the littlest Erickson at the end of Season 7 we will now watch the gang adapt to the new little addition, but eventually little Marvin will become the tiniest new member of the gang. It seems this season is going to give us a lot of answers from the future and who knows maybe we'll even meet the mother. Until then, here is a sneak peek of the premiere of Season 8.

Up All Night It looks like Ava is not exactly Oprah because in Season 2 her show is going to get canceled! Although we know Ava for being a little emotionally extreme it seems this time Reagan is the one going off the wall from the cancellation. Reagan goes crazy! She hires her unreliable and unpredictable brother to be the contractor on her bathroom expansion. She steals from her former workplace and even picks up a few new odd hobbies. The new season is going to have quite a few twists and turns and the premiere is no exception. Here is a sneak peek clip from the first episode of Season 2!

Summer is officially over and although that means no more beach days, short shorts or summer flings it also means it's the beginning of the fall TV season. This TV season brings old favorites, new love triangles and lots of break-ups. Curious what is going on this week in TV? Want to know who breaks-up and who makes-up? Questioning if your favorite couple is going to finally tie the knot? Read on fellow TV addicts but beware spoiler haters, don't cross this line.
