So, last night's season finale of American Idol might be the high point for lowbrow TV. It was kind of like what I want Vegas to be: over the top and deeply stupid, but rigidly professional. Anyway, at some point in the past year, two things happened:
1 - It became totally respectable to go on American Idol (Prince and Mary J. Blige performed).
2 - Clay Aiken turned into Harold from "Harold and Maude".
