American Idol is still the number one show on network television. I contend this has more to do with people tuning in to see what kind of whackjobs show up to audition than actual show quality. Once it gets down to the actual competition and the judges yaking we’ll all go back to scratching ourselves and watching “House” reruns per the usual.
In the meantime though – Paula and this new chick, Kara DioGuardi are playing nice-e-nice with each other for the cameras.
I don’t buy it. Paula’s got drunk face in this picture. You can clearly see that she is hurting inside. The producers may have managed to calm her for now, but there is a raging manical hellbeast in there ready to claw its’ way out.
How long do you give Paula before she gets hopped up on cough medicine and calls DioGuardi out on air? Do you watch American Idol? Are you tuning in for the trainwrecks or the talent?
