I was watching American Idol ...

Question: I was watching American Idol last night, but as usual, every time I tried to call, I couldn't get through because the lines were busy. I'm not obsessed enough with the show to try more than a few times, so my question is: How can American Idol claim to ouster people with the fewest votes, when it seems like half the votes aren't even being counted because the lines are busy?! Is it possible that they're actually getting it wrong week after week? (Although, to be fair, I'm OK with everyone who has left so far — except for Mandisa!)
Answer: This question comes up every season, perhaps less this year than in earlier seasons. The voting procedure and the actual results tally are easily the most controversial aspects of the show, and I don't have a good answer on how one could possibly gauge their accuracy. (This week I actually placed some calls as an experiment on Tuesday night to see if they'd go through — also because I thought the judges were unnecessarily harsh to KatharineRead Full Article

A Parisian is sick and thinks he may die. His condition makes him look at all the people he meets in a new and different way. Imagining his death suddenly gives new meaning to his life, to other peoples' lives, and to the life of the whole city. Fruit and vegetable sellers, a woman who runs a bakery, a social worker, a dancer, an architect, a homeless person, a university professor, a model, an illegal immigrant from Cameroon... All these very different people come together in this city and in this film. You might imagine there's nothing special about them, but for every single one of them, their life is unique. You might believe their problems don't matter, but to them, they are the most important things in the world.

Idol's Bucky: Simon Says... Nothing Helpful

Despite some rockin' country (or is it countrified rock?) performances, North Carolinian Bucky Covington bottomed out last week on Fox's American Idol (Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET) despite serving up a solid spin on Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls." "I'd rather leave on a high note than a low note," Bucky shared the day after his swan song. "If I'm not going to win it, eighth is just as good as fourth to me, do you know what I mean?" One of the many ladies surely sad to see Bucky say goodbye is none other than Paula Abdul, who was often spied boogying and b read more

American Idol George Huff was...

American IdolGeorge Huff was in the house, but these off-key performances probably removed the smile from his face for the first time ever. I did actually enjoy Taylor and was freaked out to be in agreement with Paula Abdul — Taylor is really great when he just stands there and sings. Mandisa wasn't at her best, but vocally she was still miles above the others. Yes, Simon Cowell, we know the "song isn't for you." If it were, it would be called "Damn You," not "Praise You." Paris definitely had the "attitude" part of "Work It Out" down, and she managed a decent vocal while doing the patented Beyoncé booty dance. Bucky was OK — though the band drowned him out a bit, he picked a good song read more

Will wonders never cease? This...

Will wonders never cease? This week, two of the least deserving contestants in recent reality-TV history got the boot: the obnoxious, repellent, incompetent Brent on The Apprentice and the chirpy, twerpy Kevin on American Idol. They should never have made it on these shows in the first place. But since we usually can't depend on common sense to reign on shows like these, it's worth cheering when it happens. (It would have been a swell hat trick if the woefully insecure, gratingly unworthy Gina had been eliminated from America's Next Top Model this week as well, after her runway freak-out over the glittery cockroach accessories. But there's always next week.)

American Idol Fifties night was...

American IdolFifties night was far kinder to the wannabes than Stevie Wonder night was last week. And the evening clearly belonged to Mandisa. Wow... just wow. A note to Paula Abdul: No woman wants to be compared to a horse. Paris thrived vocally on "Fever," but she's so young that the "vamp" thing didn't work so well for her. To quote the cinema classic and '50s-themed flick Grease, "she's too pure to be pink." For a minute I was so excited to see Live on stage doing "I Alone." But then I realized it was Chris, stopping once again in the '90s for inspiration instead of heading to the '50s like everyone else. He's always great, but I'm waiting for Simon to coax Chris out read more

Premise: Capt. Woodrow `Woody' Paris was a cerebral presence in the Los Angeles Police Department (he taught criminology at a local university). This underrated Steven Bochco series was also about Paris's home life with his wife, Barbara, a nurse. The show was intelligent and forcefully performed by James Earl Jones, but it failed to capture an audience and was off the air after half a season.
