what is wrong with watching American Idol?

it is funny how many people put down "American Idol" ... it is a televised talent contest. It's pleasant entertainment. What is wrong with that?

on the other hand, a program that revolves around opening suitcases ...

There's nothing inherently wrong with watching American Idol. It's the treatment of it as news by the US News outlets that angers me.

Instead of Darfur, I'm hearing about Sanjaya, and that's ridiculous.

I love AI. It's the only TV I watch all week. It's a lot cleaner than most TV shows out there (no guns, murders, sex).

I agree with the 2:04 is contributing to the dummying down of America. Most people can't name the US Senators from their state or find Iraq on a map but they know all the names of the people on American Idol.

You think people can't name their US Senators because they watch American Idol? Listen, I love American Idol and I can name half of all of the US Senators ... There is no correlation. And if people don't learn the names of their senators, it isn't becuase they are watching AI. It's because they don't care. If you want to learn more about world news watch the BBC news. Or listen to public radio. Or read the newspaper. There are plenty of news outlets that don't dwell on AI. I think it is pretty cool to have a program that appeals so broadly across race and class and age lines and is just good clean old fun!

maybe some people are sick and tired of hearing about the war, iraq and politics and just want to escape to some programming that's lighthearted like AI....
