A humble request from your upfronts correspondent

Could we please, oh please declare a moratorium on the song "Raise Your Glass," by Pink? It was fine when the Broadway actors dressed up as the cast from "The Glee Project" sang it with Darren Criss at the Oxygen upfront, it was okay during the sizzle reel at the Style upfront, I let it slide at the TruTV upfront, but by the time Scripps rolled around this morning, I had developed a twitch.

It's a totally fine song, don't get me wrong. I just never, ever, ever want to hear it again.

Never.

Okay, here it is.
