I won't have time to comment on the show till tomorrow, but, can someone who knows Jersey Boys clarify: is the Tommy DeVito in the Four Seasons really the same Tommy DeVito Pesci played in GoodFellas, or was that a joke? Because that would make the show a whole lot more interesting project, to me. ...

Sonic Youth wrote:1) Harry Connick, Jr. may have a pleasant voice when he's not hitting clinkers. But he has no stage presence, no charisma, no sense of how to engage an audience at all.

He's performing a number from The Pajama Game right now, and you're absolutely right.

It played on HBO, so it's not eligible for Oscars.

Taylor is a fine bar band singer. To think he has any potential as a real recording star is ludicorus. A life on cruise ships awaits. I just wonder if Taylor's fans are going to enjoy him as much when they just listen to him on a CD; Part of his appeal seemed in watching him spazz out onstage. A fr...

Is IFC not showing the final ceremony this year? I went ahead to Sunday on my cable schedule, and couldn't find anything.

I think TPTB officially threw in the towel on this season when Chris didn't turn out to be as popular as they'd thought/hoped. They thought they had another Bo, and Chris had a decent voice, but didn't have any charisma. They probably hoped for a Chris/Ace finale, with Taylor as the class clown who...

Somehow I came to nont mind Taylor as the season went on. Everyone else seemed to hate him more and more every week, and I didn't really become a fan, but I don't think he's quite as awful as everyone else does. He's a curiosity at best, though. As far as winners go, I think Ruben's still the worst...

Just a few days ago I was convinced that Kat had it in the bag. But now I think Taylor's winning. They were about even in the first two rounds, but when they sang their upcoming Singles, they gave Kat the suckiest song that ever sucked. Taylor's song wasn't exactly good, but it was definitely bette...

Did anyone see Kat's Evil Stage Mother mouthing "Thank You McPhans" to the camera during Elliott's sing-out? And did anyone notice how bored she was during Elliott's first song, until she realized the camera was on her? Seeing how close the vote totals were showed that it was a statistical dead hea...
