Say It Ain't So, Simon
At first I was going to try and resist. Do I really need to get hooked on it for another zillion weeks? That answer is no, not really, but there’s this irresistible pull…
I want to see how Ellen does and if Simon is as mean to her as he was to Paula, and what it will be like without Paula and her ramblings (though wasn’t she much better last year? I thought so.).
Really, in Idol land, there are two not-to-be missed portions—the beginning and the end. The auditions are endlessly entertaining—though I prefer the good auditions to the bad (I always feel sorry for them, especially the ones not trying to be bad to get on TV). And the ending, well, because there’s just something special about the show when the best of the best are performing.
So, I confess, I’ll be watching. My husband will probably be in hiding—or watching PBS. But my kids…I bet I can get at least one of them to watch with me. Who else will be tuning in?
