WNYW Fox 5 NY is the east coast flagship station for the Tri-State area (northern NJ, southern NY, western CT) with KTTV Fox 11 in LA being the west coast flagship for SoCal. Network programming is always the same, in HD feeds the splicer logos are different except for American Idol which now uses the normal Fox logo. Syndicated programming differs between every station. Big city Fox stations have local news and small stations have no local news; they run other networks or other programming. Both flagships are also network owned and operated. As a side note, the show Good Day Live features LA news personalities and uses Fox 5's people whenever they need to go to NY.

I'll never be mistaken for someone qualified to judge musical talent. In fact, my prediction shows how I'm judging the AI contestants. ;)

My wife was certain Celena would make it longer, since as she put it, "She looks like a singer". Not sure what that means, but whatever. She is pretty.

Janay is the weakest link. Goodbye.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Turn it into American Idol -- Survivor. America votes off one contestant each week.

Ryan: "Janay. I'm sorry to say that millions of people decided that you basically can't sing. Simon, any advice for Janay."

Simon: "There's a fine line between cabaret singer and pop star. You would not make it as a cabaret singer."

They thought about that, but the fear was people would vote for the "biggest threat" to their favorite instead of the worst singer.

I really like the survivior idea. Take all the contestants, put them on a deserted island somewhere and just leave them there.

Goodbye Constantine and Nikko

I disagree on Travis again, he was on key and simon should be apologizing again. Nobody is giving him credit cause its a Bobby Brown song which I don't believe is easy to sing, we shall see. At this point, who ever does a Ray Charles song will get credit which is wrong.

Best performance last night was imo Anthony Fedorov.

I concur on Constantine and Travis as last night's winners (of their old life back). The teacher and Federov and the fedora kid (not Nikko), who was not wearing his hat last night, look good to carry on.

He was on key...for about half of the song.

Sorry, but Randy (off key) and Simon (appalling) were right on this one. He and Constantine (bad impersonation of Sting) both need to go.

Constantine and Travis were both HORRIBLE last night. Unfortunately I think the poser Constantine will stay around cause some girls might find him attractive.

I'm having a problem when I record Idol in that I can't FF/RWD or pause the show with my DVR. Anyone having similar issue's with this show? Everything else I record is fine.

Timeshifting AI last night worked fine on 6412. I have also used my LG LST-3410 to timeshift AI without incident.

Travis was flat at least half of his song. Constantine was just ok...but he will make it to the next round because women find him attractive (I think he looks like Smeagol).

I think Anthony, Scott, and Travis all need to go. If I had to choose one to stay, it would be Travis as he has more "pop-star" appeal than the other.

Travis needs to go. Constantine SHOULD go but won't. Scott is likely in trouble, not helped by his serial killer/white gangsta look ;), If not Scott, then Anthony. Frankly, I'm getting a little tired of him anyway.

Constantine and Travis were the weakest links last night. Very strong performance by the guys. Best performance last night goes to Mario Vazquez. The guy can sing.

Makes you feel like you are trying to get a DVD to play without seeing all the beginning crap?

Maybe they are using the broadcast flags to stop you from doing that? I know they were talking about it, but I don't know what the result was.

The only guys I can possibly imagine as pop stars are Mario, Anwar, or perversely, Scott. The rest make me want to read about new acid reflux drugs.

Constantine is freaking awful. I know believe wholeheartedly that both Paula and Randy are deaf.

Last night...

I gotta go

Anwar
Anthony
Bo
Nikko
Mario
Scott

Get rid of the two pretenders, Travis and Constantine. Constantine has been nothing but a wannabe. Simon was right on with the Bad Sting Impersonation. Constantine just wants to mimick performers and brings no originality of his own. Let me say it again..POSER!
