These singing shows are ratings blockbusters. However, I think this show has really struck a chord with the 50+ women crowd.

I don't even think my mom really liked much "modern music" until AI came out a few years ago, but now she is "hip." And now for her birthday, Mother's Day, and Christmas all she wants is CDs by the artists that appear on this show. I try to tell her there is better music out there, but why burst her bubble?

So I was wondering if your mom is a big fan of the show too?

My family hates them, unless we're watching someone being really stupid during their audition. Once American Idol has finalized who will appear on stage and compete, it's dull and boring after that.

Reality TV are lame shows passed off as being important, when all they are, is an exuse not to hire quality writers / actors anymore. It's all dollars and cents.

American Idol is at least gender neutral in its appeal.

However, somethings just reek of Motherhood:

Such as "Fried Green Tomatoes," "Steel Magnolias," "The Bachelor," "Dancing with the Stars," and Bette Midler music.

Yes,

Be sure to show us what you find, like you did with the "toe dancer"! I watched the auditions every year and see a couple of idiots. Then change the channel to anything that's more interesting, which is pretty much everything else.

Yes, but I'm no longer home when its on, so I don't give a crap. Or at least I woudn't have, but my roommate watched the show, which is infinitely worse. I just left whenever he watched it. God, I hate that show. :(

I think that answers my question about clicketyclick's gender.
