It's once again time to go
to that place where few dare to tread
my brain. It's
time for more InSites.
The Week That Was
On "The Apprentice"
Now wasn't that fun? The two worst commercials
probably the week before during the Super
Bowl. I'm sure Dove and Donny Deutsch were thrilled to
promotion (yeah, promotion).
Even though I picked Michael to be sent home this week,
let's all rejoice that we don't have to deal with
watching Kristen any longer. Talk about your
she fit that role perfectly.
I still think Michael should go, based on past
and he'll probably continue to be my pick
until he's gone.
On "American Idol"
Now we're finally getting down to it. I am not a big fan
of how long and drawn out the Hollywood portion is
the format of Tuesday's episode. But we finally know the
identities of the final 24 that we'll see starting on
Monday. In this space next Thursday, you'll see my
ratings of all 24 finalists, and you'll be able to see
whether the people I thought were the bottom four were
actually the four eliminated. That should be fun.
The new season of the show starts tonight. Since GSNN is
a no-spoiler' zone, we won't talk about what happened
in episode one yet. But this season won't be like
anything you've seen before
right from the start.
Analysis here next week.
Odds and Ends
Congrats to our old friend Bob Harris, who sneaked out a
victory in his Ultimate Jeopardy! first-round game this
One question: Why must we refer to Susan Hawk as "Suzie"
and Jon from Survivor as "Fairplay" on "Family Feud"
What You Should Be Watching
This week, it's a game hybrid: Comedy Central's
"Distraction." It's painful. It's a train wreck waiting
to happen. You'll be glad you're NOT a contestant. But
it's a game show, like it or not. And worth watching.
