Torn

I am torn over Fox's current Tuesday night schedule. They took away House for the time being and replaced it with 2 hours of American Idol. That type of offense is nearly inforgivable. House is a fun, intelligent and great comedy. American Idol is stupid and mean, especially when Cowell dispenses one of his trademark insults.

So then why can I not stop watching it?

As much as I hate to admit it, there's a measure of schadenfreunde with American Idol. I love when a person describes themselves as the next "Jay-Z" or "Christina" and then proceeds to be absolutely awful. So I'm waiting patiently for House to return, but in the meantime it's quite a nice, mindless wait.
