TV Insiders podcast: is 'Idol' better without Simon and 'Jersey Shore' better with Deena? Plus: 'Glee' brings flaming boobs to Super Sunday!
We’ve finally gotten our first glimpse at the new, revamped American Idol judging panel. And it has Annie Barrett wondering: Could the show have actually improved with the loss of Simon Cowell? Crazy, right? You know what’s even crazier? Tim Stack is kind of thinking the same thing! They’re in cahoots, these two! On the latest edition of the TV Insiders podcast, I tell Annie and Tim just how wrong they are while explaining what’s missing from the kinder, gentler Idol. The one thing we all can agree on, however? Too many teenagers! (And yes, we’re talking to you, Victoria Huggins.)
And since we’re already in New Jersey for the Idol auditions, we’ll also drop by Jersey Shore to discuss whether the show traded up by losing Angelina and adding Deena. Plus, which side are you on in the big Jersey Shore feud: Team Sammi or Team JWoww? We tell you which corner we’re in. But that’s not all! Tim was also on set for filming of Glee‘s big post-Super Bowl extravaganza and tells us why we should prepare ourselves for both dancing zombies and boobs that shoot fire. No, that is not a misprint: boobs that shoot fire! In non-flaming boob related news, Tim will also be giving up some intel on when we may finally see Kurt and Blaine become a couple.
