Intelligent talk on an unintelligent show

I don't care about American Idol any more. I didn't watch it the first season, and then last season, for some reason, I became very wrapped up in it. Now this season I just don't care about anyone in it, and am willing to acknowledge that none of them are anyone I would ever listen to. Slate has a good article on the show in general, and in particular on the similarities between Simon Cowell and William Shatner, although I think that that is much too kind to Cowell.

That redheaded kid looked like he was going to throw
up on national TV tonight! He should really be
exposed to radiation to prevent any of his genetic
material from being passed on to any future
generations.

He sucks on purpose, he really wants to go home. He just can't seem to suck enough to make the viewers hate him.

I know I do!

i have noticed....

OMG
you keep talking about how much you hate AI....and then you know all the details. see...thats how they get you. you hate it so much, you cannot stop.

i admit to enjoying it....actually looking forward to it. on one hand...i admire their efforts...on the other hand...i loved the constant closeups on the kid who EVERYONE knew deserved a boot up the ass.
it seems manipulated...but maybe that red headed kid knows enough other red headed nerdy types with those text phones and they are voting the hell out of the other contestants.

scam!

Re: i have noticed....

I know, I know. Maybe it is a scam, like '50s quiz shows!
