Seriously? I'd watch it.
2007-01-30 06:38:49 PM  
It's just a different kind of train wreck.
2007-01-30 06:38:54 PM  
that's like throwng a drunk on the tracks just in time for the train wreck

/I'd watch it
2007-01-30 06:40:46 PM  
Remember, this is the woman whose bedroom report on Trent Reznor was "More like Three Inch Nails." I'd consider watching it.
2007-01-30 06:41:10 PM  
That's not a pic of Courtney. That's Britney in ten...oh....five week..
2007-01-30 06:42:38 PM  
So Simon Cowell hates Bob Dylan, but Courtney Love is a true talent?
2007-01-30 06:49:11 PM  
Apparently Paula just wasn't enough of a drunk
2007-01-30 06:49:43 PM  
So they do want someone that makes an ass of themself on a regular basis.
2007-01-30 06:53:02 PM  
Didn't watch it before.
2007-01-30 06:59:09 PM  
Paula is not to be replaced until she drunkenly vomits on Simon and spills her boobs from her top.
2007-01-30 07:05:07 PM  
Didn't watch it before.

Same here. I've never had any desire to watch the show, and adding that hosebag isn't going to change my mind.

Perhaps they're looking for a more 'intellectual' crowd.

oldfarthenry: Paula is not to be replaced until she drunkenly vomits on Simon and spills her boobs from her top.

No! That's what she needs to do to stay ON the show! Think of the ratings!

/Courtney would probably do that every other week
2007-01-30 07:40:36 PM  
Fark inspired trial balloon anyone? Don't take the bait. We are not Fox's uncompensated focus group for bad culture. Don't tell them how stupid they are. Let the show sink all by itself.
/suck it, corporate stooges
2007-01-30 08:14:55 PM  
Wow, is this the same article as the one directly below it on the Entertainment page?

I dunno, not going to R either FA.

/come on, insta-repeat-trifecta!
2007-01-30 08:15:17 PM  
more vagina
2007-01-30 08:16:18 PM  
This is a repeat of a link that is RIGHT BELOW IT.

/well, only this one is on the mainpage
2007-01-30 08:17:07 PM  
Catlike modminning detected.
2007-01-30 08:17:42 PM  
I'll never watch that crap, but I do think Courtney Love and Simon Cowell deserve each other.
2007-01-30 08:18:18 PM
2007-01-30 08:20:05 PM  
Wow. It this were true, I would definitely watch this show.

Paula Abdul is a fender-bender, while Courtney is a full scale train wreck.

That would be so awesome.

On second thought, I still don't think I could watch the show. It would still be too gay.
2007-01-30 08:21:04 PM  
I've said it before. StarSearch was better. And before StarSearch, Dance Fever was better. Idol is an unwatchable basket of feces. And America will not admit that watching Idol is truly nothing more than schadenfreude. That wretched show sums up everything that is wrong with America.

How will this be different? Courtney will bang all of the contestants...boys and girls.

I watched it the first couple of seasons then I quickly got bored w/ it. I get more entertainment out of the History Channel. Seriously...I like the History Channel.

Are people really still watching this stuff?
2007-01-30 08:21:54 PM  
Tivo + American Idol = A good thing
2007-01-30 08:23:45 PM  
That's just fbxrd up.
2007-01-30 08:25:12 PM  
You know, there is actually a "New Zealand Idol" TV show down there.

I know they want to emulate us, and all, but jeez.
2007-01-30 08:25:45 PM  
dear sweet baby jeebus, please let this be true. amen.
2007-01-30 08:26:06 PM

The last idol Courtney Love was with killed himself.
2007-01-30 08:26:13 PM  
Victell: Sign up for my newsletter to learn more.

Seriously. Where do I sign up? It seems to me, that every...EVERY...generation cries out "This world is going straight to shiat!"

/Only, this time, it's true.
2007-01-30 08:26:58 PM  
Well, ain't this a hole in the head! Er ... nevermind.
2007-01-30 08:27:09 PM  
Who cares? This is what, the six freaking season and people are still watching the damn thing? I'll summarize the entire season before it's over. Ryan Seacrest will continue to be obviously gay, but will deny it. Simon will be mean, Randy will be black and Paula will be drunk. The winner will be someone with marginal talent who receives the most votes from people who think Christina Aquilara can sing. Fox will cash the profits on cheap whores and drugs, repeat the process next year.

/Also, fbxrd needs to be a Fark cliche.
2007-01-30 08:27:31 PM  
That said I think this proves that American culture is merging with japanese culture, it cant be that long a transition from Karoke to MXC style game shows right?? Right??

/god I hate reality shows where no one gets wanged in the face
//yeah i said wanged in the face, so porn and japanese gameshows are included
2007-01-30 08:27:41 PM  
That's amazing. How much of a hassle do you have to be before your producers consider replacing you with Courtney Love?
2007-01-30 08:29:21 PM

I say replace Simon with Shane MacGowan.
2007-01-30 08:29:35 PM  
2007-01-30 08:29:36 PM  
farbekrieg: MXC style game shows right

Not a bad thing. But I'm still waiting for the premiere of Honk Bag.
2007-01-30 08:29:46 PM  
Do you prefer Paula or Courtney?
Do you prefer punch in the throat or kick in the nuts?

/BTW, Paula is on TV and drunk off her ass again as we speak.
2007-01-30 08:30:25 PM  
It doesn't really seem like her sort of music.
2007-01-30 08:30:34 PM  
At least this would end all of the speculation as to whether or not the hostess is on drugs.
2007-01-30 08:30:53 PM  
Courtney Love? Jesus what a train wreck

/2 degrees of separation
2007-01-30 08:31:20 PM  
I have wondered for YEARS why Courtney hasn't had her own reality show.
But they should just strap a cam to her FEAR style, and just let whatever happens, happen.
2007-01-30 08:31:44 PM  
Well at least we would know that she was high.
2007-01-30 08:33:10 PM  
Would hit:

Would NOT hit:

/thanks GIS
//pass the eye bleach please
2007-01-30 08:36:24 PM  
Isn't she in jail?
2007-01-30 08:37:35 PM  
Never had the guts to say it now..............

Courtney Love, I'd hit it.

/love my rum and coke
2007-01-30 08:37:38 PM  
Personally I still find AI amusing during the preliminary auditions. I lose interest pretty quick once they go into the "real" competition. Mind you, with Tivo you can skim through just about anything and watch all the enjoyable bits in a very short period of time.

Sitting through AI for an hour: stupid. Sitting through it for 20 minutes catching the "highlights": three times less stupid.
2007-01-30 08:37:53 PM  
GIS for Courtney Lo...O dear God WTF is This!!!!!!
2007-01-30 08:37:57 PM

She looks cute hanging with STYLE and what's her name.
2007-01-30 08:40:22 PM  
oh, the huge manly teats!
2007-01-30 08:42:49 PM  
She killed her husband, now she is going to kill American Idol?
2007-01-30 08:42:56 PM  
This is awesome. If this happens, I will start watching this show. Actually, Courtney is a basically attractive woman who has taken wretched care of herself, and she cleans up pretty good - but that's utterly beside the point. This woman pissed on David Geffen's* desk, for gawd's sake! If this doesn't happen, the terrorists have won.

* Or someone very much like him.
