Because each week's eliminated American Idol contestant media call is a repetitive display of scripted, vague, overly positive answers from extremely coached individuals, I thought I'd break up the formula with this week's Pia Toscano call, and simply check off each required answer we seem to get from every Idol castoff every week. Unsurprisingly, Pia hit all the requirements. Slightly surprisingly, she also repeatedly asserted that she is psychic. That sure is weird!
Inside every movie star is an idea for a great TV show. And inside Snooki is a lonely heart.
There are reports that in order to get her to judge American Idol next season, Jennifer Lopez had a laundry list of demands that went far beyond a hefty sum of cash. The latest news is that she may be getting $12 million -- a tidy chunk of change for sitting on her butt and telling people that they are pitchy for a few months -- but not the deal to do more Fox shows and movies that she supposedly wanted. Nor, we're guessing, does her contract include any of the below provisions that she may have been tempted to ask for:
For some reason, Fox won't admit J.Lo is back for the next season of American Idol...
It's Friday, which means it's once again time to crown the most heinous reality star of the week! Just like last week, I'll state the case for my top five nominees and then choose a winner based on a highly scientific process of deeming who is the most egregiously awful. The big question this week: Can anyone out-horrible Donald Trump? These four jerks are going to try!
Both Lone Star and J.Lo's careers got lengthened a tiny bit today. Way to hustle, guys.
We admit that we were more than a little skeptical when we heard that Simon was leaving American Idol and that they'd ousted all of the other judges besides the typically useless Randy Jackson. And we were still skeptical after the first couple of audition episodes in which Steven Tyler was just talking crazy and Jennifer Lopez refused to be mean. But since the first Hollywood week, this season has completely turned around, and instead of hoping that it would fade away after this year, we're totally enjoying it. Well, as much as we can enjoy a glorified karaoke competition. Here's why Idol is now better than it's been in ages:
Fox says no to J-Lo as an American Idol judge and The Office considers Danny McBride and Rhys Darby to fill the void left behind by Steve Carell. More rarely-made good judgments by the TV folks in today's news...
Crazypants is officially coming back to TV.
I think I speak for all Americans when I say that I am all for more J.Lo on TV.
