I am not a huge fan of American Idol (AI) but my wife is. When it comes on, we will watch it, but I don't always pay attention (admittedly, I do enjoy some of the really bad singers). However, I CAN NOT stand their new choice for a judge to replace Paula Abdul. Ellen Degenerate is THE most annoying TV personality I have even seen (ranks right up there with peewee herman). I told my wife, she is going to have to wear head phones when AI comes on from now on because I can't stand to listen to her. She said she is going to have to tivo it or something. I WILL NOT watch the next season of AI.
