The NY Daily News (and nearly ever other media outlet ) is reporting that Ellen DeGeneres will replace Paula Abdul as a judge on American Idol.
"I'm thrilled to be the new judge on 'American Idol'" DeGeneres said in a statement Wednesday night. "I've watched since the beginning, and I've always been a huge fan. So getting this job is a dream come true, and think of all the money I'll save from not having to text in my vote."I consider this theoretically good news. Ellen is great. She's funny and seems genuinely nice.
And I get kick out of Idol. I used to watch it regularly (Bo Bice got robbed), but lately, there's just so much of it. I Tivo it and build up a bunch of episodes.
But American Idol is one of those shows I like enough to to Tivo, but don't like enough to actually watch the episodes I record. And eventually Tivo gives up and erases them.
What shows do you like well enough to Tivo but not well enough to watch?
