    Are people “mental?”

    Millions tuning in to see who got voted off Idol and Dancing. When the martians land and wonder if there’s any intelligent life on this continent, here’s their answer: NO.

    Nick- First of all, people were not voted off Idol last night. It was their performance show, tonight is the result show. Second, the result show for Dancing can be pretty good. You had musical guests Rascal Flats, a performance from members of the West Side Story cast, and other dance numbers. For America to be able to see different kinds of dance is worth it. Over the past few seasons the result show has offered several choreoghers that not everyone in America can go see their work in person.

    But along with watching Dancing last night I watched The Reaper, 90210 (Donna was back!), Fringe and Cupid. Other shows were repeats.

    I really can’t judge people on what they want to watch – to each their own. Some people want to come home from a stressful day at work and just escape, is that wrong?

    just my thoughts

    As happy as I was to see Donna Martin on 90210, I thought the episode was very disappointing.

    just my thoughts
