Last time I checked, I was part of America, and it's definitely not what I want. I'm watching the show less and less, not to mention, flipping channels more and more. The good news for LCS is that there isn't much competition on network TV, but I'm gravitating toward the reruns of ANTM Cycle 1.Originally Posted by pg13
Network execs may have their reasons, but I don't think they're smart reasons. And yes, before you quote me, I put network execs and smart in the same sentence. If you look at the structure of the show, the climax comes in the heat of competition, exactly the point where we're seeing the same stale stuff. That's the point where I tune out and watch something else. I usually don't find out who won until the next show or by coming here.
I'll concede the audience issue, but you have to give up the music analogy. I can't remember the last time I was driving in my car shouting DOn Rickles at the top of my lungs as I tapped my fingers in rhythym. (Probably because it never happened.) Music is a COMPLETELY different beast and has the ability to work it's way into your subconscious with a good beat and rhyme.Originally Posted by pg13
And for the record, there are groups and singers I used to LOVE but don't listen to anymore because they have nothing new. Whatever happened to Fiona Apple? Used to love her music, but if she came around now, I wouldn't go to the concert--the songs are tired.
Who said anything about fair? I want entertainment. I'd love to see them bomb as much as succeed. Give me an audience that has to pick between two crappy performances any day of the week. I want to see them sweat. Now that's comedy--sadistic, but funny.Originally Posted by Krom
