  1. I liked the 15 year old Blues singer that opened the show, the surfer dude, and the 13 year old who auditioned last and sang with Jennifer, was incredible. Wow!

  2. The Voice and Dancing With The Stars were both down in the ratings vs. last Fall.


    One of my co-workers was concentrating more on watching Monday night football.


  3. Agree with Gene. The teens were incredible!

  4. DWTS had several impressive contestants as well. None more so than their first ever blind contestant who danced remarkably well in hold. She is also an alpine skier!
    NFL’s ratings and attendance have taken a large self inflicted hit also.

  6. Michael Lee was my only pick up from the second night. He was the Blues singer who sang BB’s “The Thrill is Gone.”

    I have purchased a few of the songs from iTunes from the early rounds in past seasons. I’m not sure that a great savings will be realized by not offering these songs in the future.
