Tuesday Night TV - The good and the bad

Tuesday - my second favourite night of TV

American Idol - The Bad
Now there's an hour I'll never get back. The theme for the night was musicals. When Ryan Seacrest announced it and mentioned The Phantom, I thought "oh goodie." I goodied too soon. No music from the Phantom. I like musicals. I've seen The Phantom on stage 3 times. I loved the movie and as soon as it's out on video it's mine. I've seen Les Miz on stage twice. I love some of the songs from West Side Story. I still on occasion hum Consider Yourself from Oliver. Last year I saw Camelot in summer theatre.
But I didn't like a single song sung tonight. I'm shallow when it comes to music - hey I still love the 80's. If I don't like the song, no matter how good the singer might be, shallow me, I don't care. I didn't care at all tonight.

The Amazing Race - The Good
Rob and Amber won this leg - again, which means a third trip. They're going to have one hell of a honeymoon. Now I could goodie. I know a lot of people don't like them but even their detractors have to admit they work well together; no bickering, no hurry, hurry baby. And Rob treats Amber with respect. Ya gotta love that.

Tomorrow night - my favourite night of TV - Lost
