TV A Prediction

For the record, I predict that if Sanjaya makes it through a couple more rounds of American Idol, he’ll bow out of the competition, under pressure from the producers.
Why? Because while he’s certainly a ratings draw, if he wins, it could potentially kill the show. If Howard Stern and others even manage to get him into the top 5 or so, people will go nuts fucking with the competition next season, and on and on. Once he starts sticking around while people with some degree of actual talent (it’s all relative, of course) get booted, they’ll push him out. At some point, his potential to fuck up their basic, zillion-dollar formula will outpace his ability to pull in big ratings right now. This things I believe.
And no, this topic doesn’t deserve this much thought, but I’ve had this goddamned song stuck in my head for a week (thanks Adrian!) so something had to give.
