First of all, let me say I like Chuck Ross. I enjoy reading his stuff on TVWeek.com and I truly appreciated the loving eulogy he gave “24” last year.
But this is pretty harsh. Comparing this season of “American Idol” to “The Jay Leno Show”?
I encourage you to read the column here.
Now the question is, do I agree with him. The answer is yes and no. Yes, I believe “Idol” will miss Simon Cowell horribly. Yes, I believe that the “Idol” producers are losing sight of what the show is all about. But no, I do not think this season of “Idol” is going to be as big of a train wreck as “The Jay Leno Show.”
And boy do I hope he’s wrong and I’m right, or else it’s going to be a long season…
