    It'll be done in under 2 years. Simon is leaving to start another show (that he owns).

    If you can't wait that long, an EM pulse targeted at Fox should do it.

    After the Simon Cowell departure and the ratings plunge, at least 5 more. I would have said 2 more, but E. Degeneres will totally save that stupid show. She's good enough to carry them for a few years.

    Or, for shins and grins, convince someone in production to Rick Roll every freaking segment.

    Don't turn on your TV. Surf Bike Forums instead.

    Lots and lots. Don't worry they will replace it with something even more inane and craptastik. You will then beg for re-runs of American Idol.

    It only bothers me, when it's on when I turn on my TV to watch Fringe.

    if you're going to watch one of those shows, try "so you think you can dance." It gives you little gems like this every once in a while.

    we just watch the tryouts.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I can honestly say I've never watched a single episode. In fact not even a single minute. There hasn't been a good talent show on the air since The Gong Show.

    American Idol needs to be tossed in the dumpster and so does Big Brother. That crappy programming is stale already.

    Why do you have to bear it at all? Is your TV stuck on one channel unable to be changed?

    I like American Idol. I also like Billy Idol.

    I would rather watch Idol than alot of the other trash that is on TV. It is one of the few non sports programs that I will watch on a regular basis. I do however watch it on my DVR so I can fast forward through commercials, etc.

    I tend to like reality TV. I watch Deadliest Catch, Storm Chasers, Survivor and Bull Run.

    Yes, I am vapid and shallow, but y'all already knew this.
