LB: "Warning: This show sucks. And blows. Seriously."


Next week's American Idol results show is running 1 hour instead of

30 minutes. Depending on how you are set up, this may cause

unexpected conflicts in the Wed 8:00p-8:30p time slot or conversely

cause AI not to record.


Wed 04/30 8:00p- 9:00p FOX American Idol

Good grief! There's only 5 contestants left! How are they going to stretch the result of the vote to a whole frikkin' hour?

I'm I the only person who wants to post this comment in every 'warning' thread about AI?

Yes, it's crap like this that gets quality shows cancelled.


What' the old saying - no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public. (something like that)

I was just thinking... Simon's right, the contestants are stale, every one doing the same thing is a different style... and then I though... better contestants than last time. No AJ or the rest of the crappy ones. And then I thought, they haven't done those stupid "who are they" segements this time around. Maybe that's what they've saved up for an entire hour results show? That will be a quick watch, skip, skip, skip, skip. =)

PT Barnum is the author of that great quote on underestimating the intelligence of the American public.


George Carlin (another genius) put it something like this: Think of how dumbthe average American is. By definition, half of the country is dumber.

IMHO - I'll be soooooo happy when these reality tv/star search crap shows go out of style. I am so sick of these shows.

Don't hold your breath.....I read that NBC alone has 14 reality shows in their new Fall lineup. I was hoping they'd go the way of the prime-time game show fad, but they appear to have a bit more staying power.

Good point. The product placement in this show is annoying, anyone can FF to the last 2 minutes and see the results if they even care.


Keep this in mind, Fox canceled the 2 time Emmy winning "Family Guy" to put this garbage on the air... Enjoy!

Good point. Am I the only one who is annoyed like heck with the product placement? If anyone really cares anyway, watch the last 2 minutes of the show to see who they kick off, or don't kick off, as it was in the case a few weeks ago, what a waste.


Keep this in mind... In order for Fox to show this crap, they canceled 2 time Emmy winning "Family Guy." So enjoy this awesome "reality show!" What a joke.


(Sorry for double post, they said there were server problems)
