Memphis' own Alexis got the boot last night on IDOL, and that's just depressing. Don't get me wrong, I like being right in that I've been saying all along that she wouldn't last but a few weeks due a lack of a fan base, but still, she could sing really well and she's local. But she lacked a strong personality, didn't smile enough and looked overwhelmed by the big stage most of the time.
We knew the judges wouldn't use their one "save" on her, either, not with five weeks left to make sure Danny or Lil aren't in the bottom. Next week I'll be sure to be extra bitter as we have to watch Megan, Michael, Scott, Kris and Anoop sing, all of whom were nowhere near Alexis in ability. Time to bring on the snark!
Did you hear Ryan say that the show is on Wednesday and Thursday next week so that the Obamessiah can take some more airtime next Tuesday? What the heck? Is the president going to invade our prime time every few weeks for the next four years? Does anyone really care if he's taking questions or making statement at 7 p.m. versus 10 a.m.? When will the networks get some cajones and start saying, "No thanks"? Stop taking off my shows, Barack!
Meanwhile, on LOST, Jack shows up out of the blue on the island after Sawyer's been waiting for three years and infiltrating Dharma, and he starts criticizing Sawyer? Up yours, doc. Jerk. I like Sawyer being in charge and Jack being a lackey who has to take orders and shut the heck up. And so help me, if you mess with Sawyer and Juliet's relationship, you will be dead to me. You hear me? Same goes for you, Freckles! So why is Sun the only one who stayed in present time? Except for the resurrected Locke, of course. Good call on the paddle to Ben's head, though, and bringing Frank along instead. And has anyone seen Rose and Bernard and the rest of the unnamed Lostaways? Where are they? WHEN are they?
