Exactly - which is why fan bases are so useful. Up until the final four Danny and Adam can have off weeks, and it doesn't matter. Their fans will dial like crazy to keep them safe. The others have to be great every single week, or they are on the chopping block.Originally Posted by TeacherLady;3409844;
Anoop, Lil, and and (surprisingly) Danny seem to have hit their ceiling - I haven't seen any breakthroughs with them in the past weeks. They have all been good, but they haven't surprised me. I'd love for them to prove me wrong, but it's getting kind of late in the game to make a break for the top.
Kris, Allison, and to a lesser extent Matt, have dazzled occasionally - so we know they have it in them. Can they be consistent from here on out? Whoever can will head into the final stretch.
Adam is just sitting there in a class by himself. Love him or hate him, he executes his performance flawlessly week after week and always pushes the creative boundary. (OK, he overshoots the mark sometimes, but if you are charting new territory that's the risk you take.)
It's going to get interesting now because the obvious AI "canon fodder" (Michael, Scott, and Megan) have been dispatched. From here on out, the cuts are going to hurt.
