American Idol

American Idol returns tonight and, due to the writer's strike, there's not much else on right now. Therefore, I will be making double the effort not to see a single second of this show. I encourage you to do the same. Come on, it's going to be EXACTLY the same show it was the last five years. Do you really need to spend two hours (or more) of your week watching it? Watch a movie, read a book, go out with friends, finally get around to writing that novel. Any of these things would do your brain better than watching American Idol this season. If this show does the same numbers it always does, it will just encourage the media conglomerates to produce more reality and extend this strike as long as possible until the writers give up and accept a bad deal. If you watch any scripted shows (and you do), don't watch American Idol. I know that Fox is telling you that you have to watch, but you don't. Fight the power.
