So, yes, Survivor is the cheesiest of the lot.

American Idol is getting close. There is the ever present Coke glasses on the table. Then last night they had the trip to Old Navy where the "kids" get to shop for free. Evidently the 3 for $20 tshirt were a good trade for airtime.

I'm was going to start product placement in my MF posts but they'd be so subtle you would hardly notice. I'll just sit here and type on my Dell™ computer. It's a Dell™.

Anyway, so as I was saying American Idol is getting to be as bad as Survivor for product placement. As a matter of fact, last night I was drinking a Budweiser™ and having a hamburger; the burger was beef, It's What's for Dinner©. I was talking to my wife, who was wearing her Gap™ tshirt, about product placement. She told me she didn't want to talk because she had a headache so I told her to take an Advil®. "An Advil®?" she replied. And I said "Take Advil® and Take Contol."

Since she wasn't up for a conversation, I sat down for two hours of quality TV on Fox™. American Idol© was on for two hours. Good, clean fun. I had to remind myself that I should tune in tonight to see who is going home...and who is still in! Wednesday, March 19th 8pm/7c, on Fox™.
