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. Granted, the show faced stiff competition early on this year from the Winter Olympics, but its post-Olympics numbers remain languid.
How the American Idol judges failed MK Nobilette
Of course, the numbers could just be...
Keith Urban, Jenifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr.
Did American Idol's Top 13 rise to the occasion?
Monday was the official debut of the Top 13 finalists and apparently, the debut of voting at the top of the hour. The night's theme is "This Is Me," which we take to mean we can totally psychoanalyze the singers by their song choice. Will anyone dare to do "Billionaire"?
Bruno Mars, Anthony Kiedis
The Seattle Seahawks destroyed the Denver Broncos Sunday. No way around it. The Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII 43-8.
At a certain point, the Seahawks domination felt almost cruel. But this is football. The people on the field suffer long-term brain damage. The game is ruthless.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Red Hot Chili Peppers will join Bruno Mars onstage for the Super Bowl halftime show next month, the NFL announced Saturday.
Bobby Moynihan, Sasheer Zamata
Lorne Michaels took the first step in fixing Saturday Night Live's diversity problem by hiringSasheer Zamata earlier this week, making the Upright Citizens Brigade alum the first black female cast member on the series since Maya Rudolph left in 2007. Zamata will face extra pressure, thanks to the ongoing controversy surrounding SNL's whitewashed cast, but new co-star Bobby Moynihan has full faith she'll be able to handle it with ease.
"I've seen her perform at UCB and I've never seen a more beautiful, confident person onstage than Sasheer," Moynihan tells TVGuide.com. "I think we're very, very lucky to get her."
Ryan Lewis, Macklemore
Jay Z received an impressive nine Grammy nominations this year, but newcomers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Kendrick Lamar are hot on his heels. Both acts received seven nominations, and all will have to face off against Kanye West and Drake for Best Rap Album.
Will Miley Cyrus be able to top her performance at the Video Music Awards? She'll get a shot to out-twerk herself next month, when she'll perform at the American Music Awards.
Cyrus was announced as a performer Thursday on Good Morning America, when the nominees for the 2013 AMAs were also revealed. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the pack with six nods, including Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year, and Single of the Year (for "Thrift Shop").
It's clear that anyone tuning into Masters of Sex expects to see, well, lots of sex. That doesn't necessarily mean, however, that viewers are using the series as some form of surrogate pornography, but rather are curious about how the series treats sex -- as smut? as science? as procreation? as titillation? In short, just how sexy is the sex on the show?
