Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 29, 2012 It was go-home time on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, as once again someone gets the boot. As you know by now, Heejun Han got eliminated with Hollie Cavanaugh and Skylar Laine in the bottom three. I’ll break down how it happened in terms of the elimination as usual with the benefit of you not having to sit through another lame Ford commercial, footage of the contestants moving into the mansion (although Skylar’s reactions were […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Season 11 recap: Elise Testone Rocks Led Zeppelin, Jessica Sanchez Amazes Again

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 28, 2012 Something interesting happened last week on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, I got all the picks right. I’m as shocked as you. I predicted that Erika Van Pelt, Heejun Han and DeAndre Brackensick would be in the bottom and that Erica would be going home. That’s what happened. I guess the sun does shine on a dog’s ass every so often. Anyway, this week on IDOL the contestants are singing songs from their own personal […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Recap: Erika Van Pelt is out – change your hair and get a swift boot

Erika Van Pelt is voted off on AMERICAN IDOL - Season 11| ©2012 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 It was decision time again on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, with the big question being would any of those that deserve to be in the bottom actually be there? Of course, by now, you know it was Erica Van Pelt that was given the unceremonious boot. With Heejun Han and DeAndre Brackensick in the bottom. But before we go any further … Rant time: Excuse me, while I get this off my chest. So […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Recap: Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips Rock it on Billy Joel Night

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 21, 2012 I found it extremely interesting this week on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, that they started the show with a look back at Shannon Magrane’s departure and how broken up everyone was. They should be thanking their lucky stars. They just got a ticket to do something that will make them some money in the summer tour. Why be sad? She was just going to be voted off eventually just like you, DeAndre, and you, […]Read On »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “The Workshop”

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Jason Grote Director: Mimi Leder Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: March 19, 2012 I have written repeatedly that it’s the singing and dancing that makes SMASH so fun to watch, and while “The Workshop” proves my point quite neatly, I think I am going to have to revise my thesis a little. When the show becomes about who is sleeping with whom and the petty in-fighting, well, then it loses what makes it special and unique – it becomes just like any other mildly soapy series […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Recap and Photos: Shannon Magrane Given the Boot on Season 11

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 15, 2012 Despite losing Jermaine Jones due to some sort of legal trouble (he had a bunch of warrants out for his arrest), the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, still got rid of another person. Of course, that person was Shannon Magrane in case you didn’t already hear about it. The other two in the bottom three were Erica Van Pelt and Elise Testone. But in case you missed the show, here’s what happened. As usual I’ll spare […]Read On »

TV Review (and Photos): AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Top 11 Compete” – Plus the Gentle Giant gets the boot

Elise Testone, Heejun Han, Jessica Sanchez, Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, DeAndre Brackensick, Erika Van Pelt, Jermaine Jones, Colton Dixon, Shannon Magrane, Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips are the AMERICAN IDOL - Top 12 - Season 11 | ©2012 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 14, 2012 It was a controversial world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, as contestant Jermaine Jones was booted from the show because of a past run-in with law enforcement. Gentle giant, huh? While this is indeed an interesting development as I guess he lied to the producers among other things (don’t they do background checks anymore?), the more interesting thing to me is that they didn’t replace him with anyone. I think bringing back Jeremy Rosado would be a […]Read On »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “Chemistry”

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Jacquelyn Reingold Director: Dan Attias Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: March 12, 2012 Oh, for crying out loud! If there was ever a storyline that would make me want to dump SMASH, the affair between lyricist/book writer Julia (Debra Messing) and actor Michael (Will Chase), now heating up in “Chemistry,” would make me do it. Because there isn’t any chemistry between Messing and Chase. Because it’s just too tiresome that the one married character has to have an affair. Because it’s just too creepy the […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Recap (and Photos): Jeremy Rosado Eliminated, Elise Testone in the bottom 2

Jeremy Rosado eliminated on AMERICAN IDOL Season 11 | ©2012 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 8, 2012 It was an hour long elimination that should have been 15 minutes on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Well I lost the pool on when J.Lo would first sell herself out on IDOL during Season 11. I figured it was going to be a music video … instead it was a music video of an advertisement for one of her products. The other came nearly immediately after with a make-up ad featuring J.Lo. They also […]Read On »

TV Recap and Photos: AMERICAN IDOL Top 13 does Whitney Houston and Stevie Wonder songs

Jessica Sanchez performs on AMERICAN IDOL - Season 11 - "Finalists Compete" | ©2012 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 7, 2012 So it has been 400 episodes of awesome karaoke on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Sigh. This is depressing considering I probably have reviewed maybe 250 of these episodes. Anyway, this week the guys are taking on Stevie Wonder while the girls are taking on Whitney Houston. Oh because IDOL wouldn’t want to needlessly cash in on the tragedy of her death or something … wait, this is IDOL all they do is cash in […]Read On »
