    Honey I like you, but you’re just not right for this competition.

    And all across America, we hear the same thing: who cares?

    We badly need a So You Think You Can Judge competition so we don’t get stuck with Paula Abdul judging on every talent show there is. :wink:

    I think one of the big reasons for Idol’s success was the chemistry between Paula and Simon. That was the spark. Way too many talent shows now anyway. Can’t blame her, she picks up a bigger paycheck with less work doing these things than what she’d have to put in on a new album and tour.
