Let me start by saying that all the contestants on Season 13 of American Idol seem like truly lovely people. And also that I'd rather watch the green paint dry on that house in True Detective than sit through another 11 weeks of performances from this crew.
And apparently, I'm not alone. Idol's ratings have (once again) been in steady decline this season and hit an all-time low a couple of weeks ago with the Feb. 20 episode.

Once President Obama leaves office, he might want to consider a career in comedy.
The commander-in-chief stopped by Zach Galifianakis' Funny or Die show Between Two Ferns this week to plug the Affordable Care Act — but he had to endure Galifianakis' typically awkward line of questioning as well.
Teen Wolf is adding some new faces to its lacrosse team in Season 4.
Mason Dye will join the cast in a recurring role as Garrett, a new student who joins the Beacon Hills lacrosse team, E! Online reports. Ender's Game star Khylin Rhambo has also signed on for the recurring role of Mason, a gay freshman who's also a member of the lacrosse team.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay is used to helping rape victims on TV, but now she's lending her support to an off-screen initiative.
Hargitay held a news conference in Detroit Monday to raise awareness about the backlog of rape kits across the state, which are unable to be processed because the county prosecutor's office is "severely understaffed" due to budget cuts, the Detroit News reports.
