Though some of the culture crowd that hangs out in these parts might sniff at the mention of "American Idol," keep in mind that it's a genuine pop culture phenomenon (and America's No. 1 TV show). In the name of being relevant to readers (and generating precious hits for my newspaper's blog), I volunteered this season to watch "AI" and carp 6a00d8341e517753ef00e54f222b2c8834-800wi.jpgabout the show -- and while I can't say that it's been my most edifying cultural experience, it's actually been kinda fun. One thing I've learned, blogging-wise, is that it can quite enjoyable to blog a big TV event live by offering running commentary and incorporating comments from readers. (It's the ultimate example of interactivity with readers, which seems to delight editors these days). I did it with the Oscars and figured I'd try it again with tonight's West-Coast feed of "American Idol." Feel free to drop in from 8-10 p.m. West Coast time and weigh in on the Battle of the Davids. I'll be live at Or you can always stop by afterward (and don't say like at the scene of an accident) and view the aftermath.
