    American Idol Gets Meaner

    Time to give the Idol franchise another serve. According to the story below, American Idol is ramping up the nastiness this season in order to keep the show "fresh".

    I've covered this topic before but I want to reiterate: This is a very bad trend in our culture. We need to stop it. Please people - do not support programs which try to boost their ratings by insulting and humiliating people. The long-term effects of normalising this behaviour are profound and a big part of what is wrong with society. If we want a better world, this is the sort of thing we need to move away from.

    Re: American Idol Gets Meaner

    Idol gets nearly twice as many viewers as the Grammys:
