American Idol To Premiere On Thursday 20th January On Fox 8

The Simon Cowell less American Idol will again be fast tracked from the US this year. It premieres on Thurs 20 January at 7.30pm on Fox 8. It is then followed up on Friday as well at 7.30pm.

American Idol has been totally changed with Simon Cowell going. The only original judge left is Randy Jackson. the two new judges are Steve Tyler from Aerosmith, and J-Lo.

However, Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, co-founder of Beats Audio and one of the world’s most successful and prolific music producers, will join American Idol as an in-house mentor.

Rumour has it that there will be more footage from the house to try and personalise the show a bit more.

I have to confess the new cast members are not filling me with enthusiasm. American Idol ratings dropped last year, but having said that it is still one of the highest rating shows on US TV.

“Rumour has it that there will be more footage from the house..”.

Hopefully this will be Hell’s Kitchen style. Heaps of gratutious shots from infrared cameras of the more nubile female contestants in skimpy bras, panties and nighties. Every night a session with these chicks in their cossies, hanging out in the helpfully provided Jacuzzi with the fat guy contestants who are really plants from the Physics Teachers’ Association designed to provide high-school students (who make up the bulk of this show’s audience, btw) with on-screen lessons in Archimede’s principle.

The same fat guys drowling insanely at their fellow contestants and unnecessarily trying to hide their boners in the spa wash, ’cause they is too stoopid to realise they is so fat we wouldn’t notice their dicks – engorged or not – anyhows.

Oh, and nightly spa cameos from one of either Randy, Steve and J-Lo during which they can do incoherent interviews and give the contestants tips. Hopefully in Steve’s case, fashion tips. In Randy’s, how to correctly chow down a chilli dog. (What a pity Simon’s pecs won’t be able to join the party to provide advice on how to look good despite being part of Simon’s body). Anything… Oh please… anything, to delay the inevitable talentless caterwauling that passes for pop singin’ on this show.
