Is It Just Me: A Bachelor Surprise?

Remixing American Idol

American Idol

Nine years ago, a brutally honest record exec named Simon Cowell was so vicious as a judge on a new musical talent show that a few performers he rudely rejected came after him with baseball bats. Fellow judge Paula Abdul was so put out by his rough treatment of young singers that at one point during the first season, she stormed off the set threatening to quit. The third judge, Randy Jackson, once could be seen standing up angrily behind the judges' table, looking like he was going to clobber Cowell.

Far from a Rocky road to redemption, with the forced uplift that implies, Lights Out goes much darker, so much so that at times you may feel you need a flashlight to watch.

If it weren't for bad luck, there would be no series. At least that's the impression you get upon first meeting Patrick "Lights" Leary, a former heavyweight champ who's been out of the ring for five years at the urging of his wife. (We first see him suffering the effects of a concussion, face pounded like ground meat ...
