Doing the math...

Big shock here, we don't watch American Idol.  But we were discussing the show's format and what we discovered made us doubly pleased that we haven't burnt any of our limited time on this planet watching this crap.


You've got an hour long show (and sometimes two fucking hours!) where the individual performances are typically under two minutes long. They spend five times that leading up to and discussing each performance. And that's not counting any special conversations they have with their guests, discussing innuendo about Ryan Secrest's masculinity or Simon's snappy banter about how some performers should just kill themselves.


So what, for the hour you get maybe 20 minutes of singing?  Is the real secret to this show that fans are using their Tivos to watch it in 10 minutes?  That thought gives us some hope for humanity.
