I think American Idol has finally jumped the shark.  I'm not at all a fan of the show, I think "talent" like Daughtry and Kelly Clarkson are the 00's equivalent of Olivia Newton-John and Loverboy, but hey, I realize there's a place in pop culture for that too.  But now they've hired Ellen DeGeneres as a "judge"....a comedienne, daytime talk-show host(ess?), who has absolutely zero credibility when it comes to music (I use the term loosely here).  Not that the show is tethered to any kind of musical reality anyway, but Ellen DeGeneres as a judge?  Really?  What's next, Bob Dylan doing a CD of Christmas standards?  Oh......
