Last night, it was: "American Idol", "Dancing With the Stars" and Joseph Losey's "The Lawless" on Turner Classic Movies. Oh, and the premiere of "Glee". TV doesn't get more exciting than that. ("Glee" reminded me of nothing as much as Ryan Murphy's initial foray into TVland, the WB series "Popular", only with musical numbers. Have to admit the glee club rendition of "Rehab" was certainly unusual.)

Larry made the observation that "American Idol" and "Dancing With the Stars" shouldn't really be listed as "reality shows" in so far as they are talent competitions, of which there is a huge history, all the way back to Major Bowes and Ted Mack. ("Sing out, Louise!")
