I always end up watching American Idol.
I start watching the early shows because of the general insanity and then get sucked into it. Last season was the worst. The Judges were all on something (except Simon) and it took the talent a lot longer than normal to get into the groove of things and stop sucking. Then the only person with any artistic originality didn't win—as usual America votes for some bland artist whose album they probably won't actually buy.
The Bad news? Extraneous Female Judge, Kara DioGuardi will be returning to the show.
The Good news? Paula will not.
