If you ask the editors of Out, they'll tell you that Glee is one heck of a powerful show  and who are we to disagree? The magazine has released its sixth annual "Power 50" list, a ranking of the 50 most powerful public figures, from politicians to entertainers. So it's no surprise that a show as popular as Glee was well-represented: Creator Ryan Murphy clocked in at a very impressive #4, with Jane Lynch (Sue) squeaking onto the list at #47. Even Season 1 guest star Neil Patrick Harris (Bryan Ryan) was in the mix, coming in at #11.

Among the other notable names on the list were Ellen Degeneres at #2, Bravo's Andy Cohen at #10, and True Blood creator Alan Ball at #37. Apple CEO Tim Cook took the top spot.

And while we're happy for Jane and Ryan, we couldn't help but angrily curiously wonder: Where the heck is Glee star Chris Colfer (Kurt)?! Not only is the guy killing it weekly on Glee, but his film, Struck by Lightning  which he wrote and stars in, thank you very much  just recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. If that's not power, we don't know what is.
