May 15, 2014: This week we’re calling out the many singing competitions currently dying a slow, slow death on the air. We were all about it from 2002 until about 2010, but at this point, isn’t it time they just quit while they’re (sort of) ahead? American Idol filmed it’s 500th show last night, but just last week FOX announced that they were slicing and dicing the show next year, and that AI would have way fewer episodes. It also canceled The X Factor, which never REALLY became quite the hit it was in the UK. NBC still has The Voice and quasi-singing competition America’s Got Talent, but realistically, how long can those continue to hold our attention?
Are you over reality singing competitions? Will you miss them if they go off the air? Share in the comments or tweet us @OKMagazine.
If you live anywhere near NYC you’re having a bad Spring. It’s cold, it’s wet and dear God, please let us hang up our coats once and for all. So in honor of the Never-Ending Winter of 2014, today’s inaugural #ThrowawayThursday belongs to Bad Weather. Go away, rain! Go away, wind! WE DON’T WANT YOU HERE ANYMORE.
With that said, please discard your used and mangled umbrellas respectfully (e.g. in a trashcan)
