American Idol is a guilty pleasure of mine - even the early audition episodes. However, I think they should stop showing the completely oddball people, because it only encourages even stranger people to show up at the next round of auditions, and then THEY get shown on TV, and it's a vicious cycle. I'd much rather watch the marginal singers and the good singers, and not so much the guy dressed up as Princess Leia from Return of the Jedi. I wish I were making that up.
