AMERICAN IDOL S11 Performance Challenge | © 2012 Fox

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 16, 2012 I was amused after the final round of “Hollywood Week” on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, over how excited people were to go to Las Vegas. Yeah, I guess the excitement of moving along is one thing, but it’s not like they are going to some great place where they can all do something fun. Half of the people are under 21 and that means no gambling. And as I said before, you can get […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Hollywood Round, Part 2”

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 9, 2012 Was the first episode of Hollywood Round a new low for the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL? I was reading a slew of reports about showing Symone Black falling from the stage and ending the show that way didn’t do the shows credibility any favors because it showed it wasn’t really interested or caring toward the individuals of the show. Credibility? Really? We are talking about a show that basically tells a bunch of amateur singers […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 8, 2012 So after literally a month of craptacular auditions we are finally to the meat of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. The audition rounds are so eight season ago. They really need to truncate it and get right to the competition because it is no longer holds the interest that it once did. Luckily, we are past that part now. Last year they finally gave us an extended look at the Hollywood Round, where the judges […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 2, 2012 Luckily for us, this is the last of the auditions on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. The real show begins next week with Hollywood Week and hopefully we will get a similar treatment as we did last year where we get expanded coverage of the process as it is the most interesting part of the show – maybe even better than the individual performances when it gets to the Top 12. Not to beat […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler Network: Fox, Airs @ 8 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Jan. 25, 2012 So here we are again for yet another round of the same ole, same ole on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, coming from lovely Aspen, for what I believe the first time in the show’s history. First the good news, IDOL was only one hour tonight instead of the usual two. The bad news is that there was literally nothing different from the other three audition episodes other than the people singing (and for the […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Auditions No. 1 – Savannah” – Season Premiere

Cast: Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 18, 2012 I found the premiere episode of the 11th season of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, extremely amusing. No, not because of the lack of talent that was displayed traditionally, but because they focused on how many talents have come through the show in that span. I’m amused because it has been 10 years of going through these painfully bad auditions – again, not talking about the lack of talent, but the very fact that they […]Read On »

THE X FACTOR Season 1 Recap: Nothing to Crow about as Rachel Crow gets her heart ripped out by Nicole Scherzinger

Network: Fox Original Telecast: November 30, 2011 Here’s the problem with having 13, 14, or 15 year olds competing on reality programs – they’re not mature enough and emotionally not ready to take on the big hurdles these kind of shows present. And THE X FACTOR has proven all season, its youngest contestants may be talented, but to be thrust into the dog eat dog world of the entertainment industry is a dangerous, slippery slope. First, we had the arrogance of Astro refusing to perform when he was in the bottom one week. Last week, the judges unfairly ousted Drew […]Read On »

TV Review: THE X FACTOR – Season 1 – “The Top 5 Perform” Recap

Network: Fox Original Telecast: December 7, 2011 THE X FACTOR is down to the Final Five, and I’m so bored with the remaining contestants, going into the latest episode, I was prepared to be bored to tears. After Drew got the boot last week (my fave singer), the five remaining have a lot to prove. Usually I list the judges comments, but it doesn’t matter what they really say tonight. Last week they proved they’re in it for themselves – not for voting for who is most deserving. Yet, even more so, what is necessary now, is to determine and […]Read On »
