NZ Idol dying? PLEASE!

Please, oh please, let it be true.
It would be better still if the entire "reality TV" genre were to die the miserable death for which it is long overdue, but if we can only lose one facet the "Idol" series would be my first pick.
It's like bad karaoke, with the crowd egging-on the mediocre until they finally sing themselves into humiliation. The very worst "talent" that we have to offer, live and in colour and on TV.

Long may the ratings slide continue, until it slides off the edge of the cliff known as "NZ On Air funding".

-- UPDATE --
OK, sorry, my brother has shown me the error of my ways. "The Simple Life" would have been my first pick if I'd given it much thought. But since Fox have already done the deed, "Idol" is now king of the heap.

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos. All thoughts are my own, representing only my thoughts, opinions and positions, unless explicitly otherwise stated.
