I’ve whined and complained all season about how obviously Idol is fixed and every since the top 13 it’s been clear that the judges wanted a Adam vs. Gokey final. Now the folks at EW have a quote from Simon Cowell that proves my point, the Fix is in, there’s no point in even bothering to watch tonight. I’ve always made it clear how much I hate reality television but between crap like The Apprentice and the obvious fixing on Idol, I don’t know why people continue to support “Reality” television.
“I’d love [Adam] in the finale but really with Danny, because Kris is a nice guy, but he’s not a good enough singer to compete with Adam,” said Cowell during an interview broadcast on Fox News’ Fox & Friends morning show on Tuesday. “The only one who can compete with Adam on vocals is Danny.” Here’s the full story.
Also here are the spoilers for the Judges Picks tonight – seem like it’s going to be an awful show –
Kris Allen – Apologize, selected by Randy and Kara
Adam Lambert – U2’s “One” or Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” selected by Simon
Danny “Douchebag, No Talent” Gokey – Terence Trent D’Arby’s “Dance Little Sister”, selected by Paula
Ok I’ve never watched more than 10 seconds of Celebrity Apprentice, I hate almost ALL reality shows and refuse to watch them. But this stupid Celebrity Apprentice brings out a whole new level of hatred from me. Not only do I despise Donald Trump but I despise Joan Rivers. How is it this #$##@ is even famous? What the heck has she done in life to justify her Celebrity status? At least the other woman won a poker tournament or something. Which requires actually having some talent. And am I the only one who finds it strange the Rivers was even in this contest considering she’s been good friends with Donald Trump for YEARS???!!!!
Like I said, I never watched the show so maybe the tasks aren’t subjective. But come on I don’t understand why this stupid show is popular or how Donald Trump continues to get away with portraying himself as a successful businessman. He built his first fortune by using his Father’s connections, money and name. Then lost it, built another one and is about to go bankrupt again. He ripped off a bunch of California investors on a multimillion dollar fake real estate deal earlier this year. I used to love The Donald until I read his book The Art of the Deal and found out how he really built his empire. He is successful at one thing and that’s promoting himself. So someone please explain the appeal of this show and Joan Rivers and her #$#@ daughter in particular.

Supernatural season 4 has been a wild roller coaster ride for fans and viewers alike as Dean and Sam Winchester (Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki) have faced some of the toughest challenges of their ‘hunter’ careers: from Dean being pulled out of hell by an angel to take on a mission from God to Sam becoming addicted to the demon blood from which he gains powers to defeat those very same demons.

With Sweeps Weeks going on all through the month of February, Warner Brothers is cranking up the publicity for their hit series ‘Supernatural’, which airs on The CW Network Thursday nights at 9PM EST.Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Sam and Dean Winchester: two brothers engaged in the ‘family business’ of traveling the highways and byways of Americana in black ’67 Chevy Impala with a trunk full of weapons designed to fight all manner of supernatural related threats. The hit Warner Bros series, now in its third season on the CW Network has cranked up the action, suspense and drama this season with the Winchester brothers not only facing down supernatural threats and saving people from them, but being at war with the horde of demons they had inadvertently released in the season two finale, All Hell Breaks Loose. Top that off with a desperate race against time to get Dean out of the deal he made to bring Sam back to life, a deal that trades Dean’s soul off into hell in one year’s time, and Supernatural is one wild ride this season.
HBO’s wildly popular “The Wire” started its fifth and final season last week. The riveting series, dedicated to the intersection of Baltimore’s gritty drug world, police intervention and political turmoil, had a slow, cautious start.
Over the years, “The Wire” became a well-respected series by fans. Clearly the network’s underdog, the series rose to unprecedented popularity, as viewers tuned in every week and insisted that the network keep the show on despite their on-off-again battle with canceling the show.
The Wire’s fourth season focused mainly on the youth and their street life, home life and education. At the height of the season, one of the key young characters, Michael Lee, joined the team of known drug lord Marlo Stanfield.
