American Idol

I have been watching this show for the most part this season, for the first time. I don't know if I could watch it if I didn't have DVR. Not being able to fast forward through Ryan Seacrest would be pretty painful. I think I've enjoyed it primarily because of the "rockers": Bo and Constantine. They sing songs I've actually listened to and liked, unlike their antithesis, Nikko, the son of Ozzie Smith who specializes in bland, Brian McKnightian R &B. I used to not watch the show because it always seemed like they were singing Nikko-type music, and I have been pleasantly surprised by the variety of the show. One contestant who I like, mainly because he's kind of a Dumpy Average American champion (from our old buddy Ticak's hometown of Cleveland) is Scott Savol. However, now it turns out that Scott is even more like the average wrong side of the tracks guy than I thought: he has a bit of a rap sheet due to a domestic dispute. Assuming they don't kick him off, will this hurt his votes? I'm not convinced. I think it might help.
