For those of you who just can’t get wait from one Tuesday to the next for your American Idol fix, Fox has added American Idol Rewind to its weekend line-up. Even though they call it American Idol Rewind, its just reruns of old American Idol seasons. We watched it Saturday evening, it was an episode from season 1 when they went down from 6 to 5 contestants. It was interesting to see one of these old episodes and compare it with the current season. The format was basically the same. They used the same weak lines to go to commercials, stall telling contestants if they were safe, and to say goodbye. The performances seemed far less sophisticated than they do today. The judges picked who went home back then, not audience votes. I completely forgot that there was another host in addition to Ryan Seacrest, Brian Dunkleman. I bet that guy’s pretty bitter after getting dropped after the first season. He missed out on the megabucks. It was fun to watch just as a comparison but, I doubt I could watch it every week. If you’re a real die-hard you might get a kick to watch a few though.
