American Idol - Casey Abrams Gets Saved
I knew it was coming, but it still twisted my stomach when it did.

Last night, I thought my ‘Idol’ nightmare was over. I thought we were rid of the overrated self-indulgence factory that is Casey Abrams. I thought I wouldn’t have to see why having a beard makes you an artist, why being herky-jerky gives you credibility and why not picking pop songs gives you a sense of musical depth that would make James Murphy jealous. I thought I wouldn’t have to write a single word about that any longer, but I couldn’t help but think that as he sat in the bottom three that the judges would save him no m...

Johnson has gone from being "The Rock" to now wearing a tutu like Tinker Bell. This new movie role doesn't sit well with some fans who have been following Johnson since his WWE days.

Another season of The Apprentice, another Celebrity version. While it would be nice for Donald Trump to help out our unemployment numbers by actually hiring someone via the show, he has quite an interesting group of celebrities to deal with this season.

Rod Blagojevich: Included because the producers knew the announcement would make a splash (and it did), don't expect the former Illinois Governor to last very long. Remember, Khloe Kardashian was fired for a DUI arrest last season. Expect Rod to scrape together some cash for charity, then get ousted during a bully pulpit from The Don.

A director getting the optimum performance out of an actor is not unlike a coach getting a great performance out of an athlete. One has to use the right guy in the right scene with expert timing. These are situations where one could film countless scenes of all different kinds, and getting laughs so big with these athletes would seem impossible - they're almost perfect. Remember, the fellas on this list appear here because they got the biggest laughs, not because they were the best actors or in the best movies.
