Reality TV World Message Board Forums
PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

That's right: we've got a complete judging panel in place, just in time for the audition callbacks. We've also got a snazzy thread title from Grantland's Mark Lisanti, which was so appropriate that I actually used the word 'snazzy'. And we have a Fair Use from Kevin Reilly of FOX to give you the lineup. Ready?

No. No, you are not.

"American Idol has always been about discovering the next singing superstar, and next season our judging panel will deliver a most impressive combination of talent, wisdom and personality to do just that. Jennifer Lopez, the triple-threat global superstar who loves Idol and whom Idol fans love; Harry Connick, Jr., a bona-fide musical genius and fantastic Idol mentor whose honesty and expertise can help turn these hopefuls into stars; Keith Urban, a multi-Grammy-winning artist who was such a positive force on the show last season. We are also very excited to have our friend Randy Jackson now in a new role as mentor, and the captain of our team the heart and soul of Idol Ryan Seacrest returning as host."

The short form of this is 'We're @#$%ed.'

The long form is the same, only more verbose.

Obviously there's no end to Randroach's blackmail material. (Mark's theory is that he just kept showing up for work.) Jennifer didn't work the first time. Keith -- showed up. A lot. And Harry... Harry is a chance to watch The Corruption at work. He was one of the very few honest mentors, giving contestants true advice which the show immediately did its best to subvert. He even called everyone on 'pitchy'. How long will it take him to lose those qualities under the pressure of the network paycheck? I give him three weeks.

I sense a further ratings crash coming on.

I'd go to FHags to see how the Worster remnants are taking this, but I think I can hear the laughter from here.
