'Glee' Cast Dumped from Macy's Parade

The hit FOX show "Glee" is chorus non grata at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ... and we've learned NBC is behind it all.

The network that can't produce a hit to save its life -- at least this year -- has banned the cast of "Glee" from appearing at the Parade that airs on NBC.

Sources tell us Macy's invited the "Glee" cast -- the deal was all but signed -- but when rival NBC found out, they told the department store to pull the plug.

A rep for FOX declined to comment. NBC could not be reached. Macy's didn't get back to us.
