January 20

Let's start this week's InSites with a little gloating. I was right!!! Another season, another guy as the first booted off "The Apprentice." And I like The Donald's decision. That's rule #1 of leadership: be able to put yourself in everyone else's shoes. Todd didn't do that at BK.

I loved when the Street Smarts team asked the BK employees if any of them had a college degree -- then they revealed none of them did either. Great moment.

Moving on...there will be a lot of people who don't agree with me, but thank God that American Idol is back! Having that two hours of fun television back is big, and FOX has been reaping the benefits, with the #2 and #3 shows last week. The show hasn't missed a beat, and taking the guest judges from the competition round to the audition round has led to, quite frankly, much more honest guest judging this time.

I'm going to be very interested to see the ratings for next Wednesday (February 2nd). FOX traditionally has the lowest ratings, by far, for political events. Next week's State of the Union Address follows an episode of American Idol. Will people just leave it on FOX? That could be interesting.

In case you can't tell, I don't have a lot to talk about this week. So I won't keep rambling on. But before I go, let me suggest one non-game reality series that's worth watching (and I hope they repeat it so you can): ABC Family's "Brat Camp." It's been interesting viewing, as troubled British teens get sent to a Utah camp to get "set straight." The series finale is next week.

Next week: a little look ahead to Survivor, info on the state of game shows and reality games in 2005, and (if I can come up with anything) a preview of the big Jeopardy! tournament.
