I hate that show. I don’t mind reality shows generally, but for some reason, I hate this one. I find no entertainment in seeing all of the bad singers that only go before the judges because it would make for funny TV. I find no entertainment in the decent singers hanging their dreams on this one chance only to have them crushed through a series of interviews and the creation of false drama. I find no entertainment in hearing the judges stupid feedback that really isn’t helpful or constructive; it’s just entertainment at the expense of some poor kid who really thought they had a chance.
And, more than anything, I hate how it takes over everything. I hate flipping between radio stations in the morning trying to dodge the play-by-play analysis of the show the night before. I hate seeing news articles show up like “Bikini Girl Brings Out Fight in New Judge”….really? That’s news worthy? I hate hearing about Paula and Simon and Randy. I hate that I don’t watch the show, yet I know their names.
I’ve been told that I just haven’t given it a chance, but that’s not true. We tried watching it find out what the hype was about – I just couldn’t do it. It was too painful.
Am I really in the minority here?
