TV Junkie: Stop It With the 3-Hour Finales; Cowell Spills the Lambert
"Fringe" season finale at 9pm on FOX
This trend of creating multi-hour season finales of TV reality shows has got to stop. Among other finales, Sunday's 3 hour finale of "Celebrity Apprentice" was unnecessarily drawn out with tons of footage that should have been cut, resulting in subjecting the audience to almost 1/2 hour of additional commercials. Tonight's 3 hour finale of "The Biggest Loser" promises more of the same.
Yesterday on Oprah, Simon Cowell said that Adam Lambert will win "American Idol". Great, now there's officially no reason to watch the rest of that show, and perhaps official recognition that the show is fixed.
