For the second year in a row, American Idol gave DVR-ers everywhere a complete and total 2-hour shaft, and it’s driven me out of blog silence for just this one moment.
Last year, after 120 minutes of waitertainment, the announcement of the winner of American Idol was announced at 9:03 and three seconds. I remember, because our DVR recorded an extra three minutes until 9:03, when Ryan proclaimed, “The winner of American Idol Season 6 is . . . ” and we missed the end. Unbelievable.
Tonight, I kid you not, he did it again. Only this time our DVR switched off right at 9:00. It is beyond detestable that a results show would spend two hours offering no results whatsoever. But here’s what did happen:
Seacrest: “The winner of American Idol Season 7 is . . . David . . .” and then it ended. I am not even kidding. Granted, I didn’t have to sit through the two grueling hours of seeing and hearing from all the people we’re so glad are gone . . . but to not even reveal the winner in the alotted time is an absolute crime. It’s an outrage. It’s so outrageous, the rage has come back in. It’s INrageous and OUTcredible.
And yeah, I looked up who won. But I’m ticked on principle.
