Try as we might to look sophisticated for the BBC it simply won't work. We love reality shows so much we want to marry them, on live TV and in prime time. We love them so much that next year, it'll cost $700,000 for a 30-second spot American Idol.
And that's the Wednesday show, not the performance-packed Tuesday show. Meaning that we don't care about talent so much as we love seeing youthful dreams cruelly and abruptly crushed. Not to be left out, the Food Network will air a second search for a show host. Because even people who think network TV is unoriginal tripe are hooked on...unoriginal tripe.
