Voted off Tonight On Idol/Upcoming Shows
Okay the following contains spoilers for those on the west coast, so turn back if you don’t want to know!
Voted off tonight were: Alexandréa Lushington, Alaina Whitaker ,Jason Yeager and Robbie Carrico. I don’t have too much to say really, mainly cause I didn’t remember most of their performances to begin with!
Some announcements were also made about changes to come. Beginning with the top 12, there will be an all new set, intro and graphics. Rubin Studdard has recorded a new “goodbye” song for the season as well.
For the first time the Lennon/McCarthy song book has been released to the show, so expect a Beatles episode!
Finally they are doing another installment of “Idol Gives Back” with big name stars participating, including Maria Carey, Snoop Dog and Brad Pitt.
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve added a poll to the side bar of the site. Originally I didn’t modify the settings, and it was set pretty strict when it came to logging people’s votes. Therefore if you weren’t able to vote because it thought you had voted (IE dial-up users or those on shared IPS), sorry! I think I’ve fixed that now.
If a new poll is posted and you are unable to vote then you may need to clear your browser’s cookies. The cookies should automatically expire when the poll is set to end, but sometimes a new poll is posted before that date and may block you from voting again.
Also please don’t “cheat” and clear cookies to keep voting over and over, it takes the fun out of the whole process and forces me to add back in the option to block multiple votes by IP, which blocks a lot of people on shared IPs (ie AOL) from voting.
Writers Guild Approves New Contract
This week the Writers Guild of America officially approved of a new contract, which gives them royalties from the sale of TV shows and movies sold on DVD and the internet, one of the major issues surrounding their three month strike. The contract lasts until 2011, so for at least 3 years we won’t be going through this again. Come 2011 though . . . . .
American Idol: The Girls Barely Brought It
Last night the girls on AI performed, and well, I didn’t think it was that good. Honestly I’m watching them and saying things that make me feel like Simon! Carly Smithson, who started with a Heart song, and Brooke White who did Carly Simon, were really the only outstanding performers of the night. A few others were good, just not great. Others were downright horrible.
I honestly don’t know what to think of the competition this year. I mean right now there are only a handful of people who I think should even be in the whole thing. I think I could not watch for about 3-4 weeks, tune back in and see everyone I expect to be there on the screen. I don’t know who will go home tonight for the girls honestly, there were so many to pick from.

American Idol: It’s Not Hard To Imagine Who May Win This
So I watched the men on American Idol give it their all tonight. For the most part I wasn’t that impressed. Some where that’s good, a lot were just okay or “safe” as Paula and Randy like to say. I felt Luke Menard, who sang “Killer Queen” did a good job. Of course I love the song, so I may be a bit prejudice there. David Cook sang “All Right Now” and rocked on the guitar. I felt as far as the rocker went, he was the best. As Paula put it “you are the real deal.” Of course the performance of the evening went to the youngster David Archuleta who sang “Imagine.” Paula was in tears and Simon summed it all up, the other 19 are probably miserable right now having heard that performance. I think he may win this whole thing, and the fact that he’s so young is a bonus to him. Going home? I think we’ll be saying goodbye to the Jasons. Jason Yeagers and Jason Castro. Feel free to share your thoughts and you can also vote in the poll over at The Forums as to who you think will go home on Wednesday.

Cashmere Mafia: Dogs, Companies and Fashion Shows; Oh And That Lipstick Show
This week Mia began fostered a dog named Walter. Walter was only interested in sleeping and didn’t show much interest in her. She wanted to send him back, but finally they bonded when Walter chewed up one of her shoes. Unfortunately the people from the dog place came to take him back, and they didn’t feel she was a good fit. Once he was taken away, she realized how much she really wanted him and needed him. Yes yes, she got him back; but this was all a part of the larger realization that Jason, the guy she was dating, just wasn’t doing it for her. Unlike the dog, she could in fact bear to be away from him and didn’t want him around 24/7. Definitely an interesting way to come to the conclusion your not clicking with the guy you are dating.
Zoe, the super mom of the show, was now working at home having quit her job. Her former partner, who took all the credit for her deal and got a promotion, kept coming to her throughout the show because he needed her help. She gave him the cold shoulder. Meanwhile she became obsessed with her daughters science project, having to take over and make it the biggest and the best. Of course by the end of the show, she realized what she was doing. I was a bit disappointed with this storyline this week. I mean that little tactic has been done on every show I can think of. What disappointment even more was her husband told her if she wanted to go back to her job, it was okay. WHAT! She should NOT go back to that place after the crap that was pulled on her!
Juliette was also dealing with company issues of her own. Newly divorced, her company has become the target of a hostile take over by some business mogul buying up all her stocks. Not only did he want her company, but her too! He kept trying to court her, but eventually she let him know her company was not for sale and he couldn’t have her either.
Finally Caitlin was put in charge of a Lilly Parish cosmetics show. She took a chance on using a new designer, who flaked on her and didn’t have any of the outfits ready for the show. He showed up with them in pieces and was going to finish them, when the show started in two hours! When Caitlin flipped, he told her that she was making it impossible for him to work and he was freezing up. She saved the day by having the models just go out in their panties and bustiers, with really flashy and outrageous make-up jobs and the tag line “It doesn’t matter what you wear, as long as you’re wearing Lilly Parish.” She saved the show!
Honestly this was one of the more boring episodes for me. It seemed to be missing the pizazz of the early shows. Meanwhile I have been watching the counterpart “Lipstick Jungle” on NBC. Some background. “Lipstick Jungle” is based on a book by Candace Bushnell, who wrote the “Sex And The City” book. That was obviously turned into a hit show for HBO, and Darren Star produced it. Darren Star then produced and created “Cashmere Mafia.” So there is some bad blood between the two, and if you’ve watched both shows, they are very similar. Unfortunately “Cashmere” got out of the gate first, that’s always a plus. I have to say I enjoy the women and stories on “Cashmere” much more. Currently Brooke Shield’s character on “Lipstick” is the only one that intrigues me. The other two characters simply annoy me!
Is anyone watching both? Your thoughts?
