Cast: Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: February 24, 2010 Holy crap if I have to hear J.Lo say “I can’t do this anymore” on AMERICAN IDOL one more time, I’m seriously going to punch someone.

Don’t get me wrong, I have been more than happy we have gotten as much as we have as we have not had this type of access or […]Read On »COMMENTS (0)
Cast: Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: February 10, 2011 For years I’ve been covering AMERICAN IDOL, most of that time with iF Magazine and then periodically now with AssignmentX. During my tenure as a reviewer of the show whether it be reviews, or features, or lists, or how the show could improve I have rallied for the show to provide us with a better understanding of what happens during Hollywood Week.
