Is NBC going totally gay?

Not only did they broadcast the Golden Globes on Monday, but this past Saturday night Jake Gyllenhaal poked fun at his Brokeback image with a hilarious rendition of "I’m Telling You I’m Not Going" (in drag no less.) Follow this link to view it.

And on Thursday night Scrubs presents an original half-hour musical. In the show guest star Stephanie D’Abruzzo, who starred in "Avenue Q" on Broadway, plays a woman hospitalized at Sacred Heart after she hears everyone she encounters singing.

Ten songs are crammed into the 22-minute episode, including an elaborate, gurney twirling "Welcome to Sacred Heart," "Everything Comes Down to Poo" and "Guy Love," both already playing on YouTube.com.

The songs also have an Avenue Q connection: that show’s composers Robert Lopez aned Jeff Marx, along with Jan Stevens, wrote the music; while the two joined talent with Paul Parry and series writer Debra Fordham on the lyrics.
