When Do You Start Watching American Idol?


Clear your calendar: The seventh season of American Idol kicks off tonight with auditions in Philadelphia. After so many years, I just can't stomach the auditions anymore, so I typically wait till the Hollywood round to tune in. I know other people live for the auditions, while some of you might not watch until the bitter end. So I'm wondering: When do you start watching American Idol?

I hate the auditions....alot of those people they're making fun of are obviously mentally unstable. Poking fun at them on national telvision is a new low.

I ususally just watch the auditions and then maybe the first Hollywood round. I know it's bad but some of the auditions can be so funny.

I only like to watch the auditions, but right now my son and I are watching The Biggest Loser and they overlap, so AI gets the boot.

I've never actually gotten into AI like a lot of other people do...I'm glad I'm not the only one! :)

I kind of lost interest in Idol two years ago, REALLY got tired of it last year, and am not sure how much I'll tune in this year. Maybe here and there, but probably not much.

Please go away American Idol. Seriously, just go away. You'd think people would stop auditioning when they realized that only the very first "American Idol" did anything special with her "career." It's sad what people will do to be on camera.

I cannot handle the audition rounds at all. What a waste of time. What I usually do is watch the last five minutes during the "real" competition, on both nights. On performance night, to see the recaps and phone numbers, and on results night, to see who is kicked off. Mostly the show just annoys me because of all the commercials.

Last year was my first season, so I'm not sick of the auditions yet. In fact, I'm secretly hoping that in the Philly round tonight I see someone I went to high school with make a total ass out of themselves. That would make my week :)

The audition episodes and only the audition episodes. I enjoyed seeing the really bad singers, but then I totally lose interest.

Give me The History Channel ANY DAY over American Idol. PS: If you can, you should check out your local PBS Station during this strike...they have a lot of great show offerings!!!

I watch here and there until the Top 12, then I'm fairly religious about it, at least in the past two seasons. A LOT of people are into it here (ALABAMA!) because of Reuben, Taylor and Bo Bice. I do get super annoyed with all the commercials and "after the break" crap. So usually I just DVR it.

I was a fan for the first few seasons. Last season though was so gawd awful! The auditions are a little painful to watch now, but sometimes I'll watch them. I might watch the rest of the season but it will definitely depend on how good the contestants are.
