On Tuesday, Dancing With the Stars sent home its latest celebrity after a special hour long results show. Tomorrow, American Idol will do the same.Those two shows have results episodes just for revealing who's heading home — usually with a lot of recapping, special performances, and filler along the way.
I understand why results shows exist — it's tough to have audience voting determine who goes home otherwise, though a few shows have tried that. But ratings for results shows typically aren't as good as they are for performance shows. I'm wondering, especially with spoilers so available these days, do you even watch results shows? Or do you just head online to find out who's been eliminated?
