Is American Idol over? Have you been watching? I have to say this is the first year I didn’t care if I watched or not. Looks like Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban aren’t enough to bring the show back to it’s glory days. This is the first time another show had a bigger audience during its premiere week. NCIS beat Idol in regards to the number of viewers this week. Although Idol still had over 17 million viewers for Wednesday nights show, that’s down 19% from last year. TVGuide rated the judges and I think they are dead on. Click here to read. What do you think, is it over?
Part one of the big Lance Armstrong interview with Oprah aired last night on OWN. In it Lance admitted that he used performance-enhancing drugs during all seven of his Tour de France wins. And he admitted that he did not believe it would have been possible to win all those titles without doping. Lance also admitted that he ruined a lot of people who tried to call him out on his doping over the years. He said he’s trying to make amends. Part two of the interview airs tonight at 8p on OWN or you can watch it at oprah.com.
A couple of TV notes for this weekend-“Prosecuting Casey Anthony” starting Rob Lowe will air on Lifetime at 7p (I’m excited for this!!!) and Jennifer Lawerence hosts “Saturday Night Live” with musical guests The Lumineers.
