204x83_redmole It's time to sprout our conspiracy theories.  Me, I think the mole is the crying history teacher Mark.  Come tell me why you think I'm wrong as we discuss that and all other things The Mole in our open thread at 10.

New Open Thread: The Mole

Mole Mole watchers unite!  And if you have never watched The Mole, you need to start!  You can learn all about the show here, but here is a quick and dirty: 12 people compete in various contestants to win money, but one is THE MOLE, a saboteur.  Every episode includes a quiz on who is the mole.

And no, Anderson Cooper is not hosting anymore.  I'm sad too.

Join me at 10 pm for an awesome open thread and

So You Think You Can Dance Premieres Tonight @ 8, Open Threading to Commence

Sytycd_2 So I don't know if everybody is as burned the hell out on competition-based reality shows as I am, but what with EVERY SHOW ON TELEVISION airing their finales already in spite of the strike-ravaged seasons, I also don't know what the hell else I'm supposed to watch BESIDES competition-based reality shows.

A new season of So You Think You Can Dance kicks off tonight at 8 pm ET, and as we have done since the beginning of time, there will be an OPEN THREAD over at the MamaPopTalk forums for anyone who cares to watch and snark on the show live. You KNOW you can't handle Mary Murphy alone, so join us! Jooooooin usssssss!

Regarding Your American Idol Finale Open Thread


Alright, I'm going to lay it all out on the line here, people.

I have ZERO ZILCH NADA interest in watching dewy, doe-eyed David Archuletta win American Idol. The entirety of his being grates on me like razor-sharp fingernails on a chalkboard. If I gaze upon his visage too long, I start feeling an almost uncontrollable desire to find a couple of red hot pokers and plunge them into my eyesockets. Luckily, red hot pokers are hard to come by, at least in my household.

Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is that in light of last night's evil confluence of bad song choices and what appears to be an epidemic of bad taste, it seems fairly apparent to anyone with a pulse what the outcome of tonight's show is going to be. I mean, Simon (of all people! THE TRAITOR!) practically CROWNED Archie last night. Tonight's two-hour coronation seems kind of moot, honestly.

That said, this is MamaPop, and we promised an Open Thread, and if you want it we'll give it to you. I also understand the desire for some closure on this season, and so, despite my reservations, I will indeed host a thread tonight provided at least 10 people comment here claiming 1) they want such a thing, and 2) promise on all they hold dear they will show up and participate. In light of all I've said above about my feelings of disgust and disappointment, that seems fair, yes?

So! Comment with your yay or nays. If we hit 10 people I'm in. If we hit less than 10, I'll still have an open thread up for anyone who wants to participate.... I'll just be off drowning my sorrows elsewhere. (weeps)

What say y'all?

Reminder: American Idol Open Thread Tonight!


Yes, it's getting down to the wire on AI, thank god, and I can only hope either David Whiney McAikenpants or Suckesha are out this week... but we all know who's going to win at this point, don't we? DO NOT CONTRADICT ME. YOU WON'T LIKE ME WHEN I'M ANGRY.

So join me and my boyfriend David Cook for the big final four smackdown over in our AI forum starting at 8pm EST, and be sure to BYOB -- lawd knows we're gonna need it. See you then!

Reminder: American Idol Open Thread Tonight!

ReminderWe're down to FIVE. Not that Carly -- who was clearly a decorative plant of some sort and not an actual human being, at least according to MamaPop's own Jodi -- really counted or anything. cough.

Soooo...who's going down this evening, ya think? Any pre-game bets, m'ladies?

In any case, tonight we has Neil Diamondz, nom nom nom! Sadly, I know just about every song by Mr. Diamond, having grown up with a father who was borderline obsessed with the man. But then I must admit that I went on to independently purchase the Rick Rubinified "12 Songs" back in '05, if only because we cannot escape our past, my friends (incidentally that album kicks ass, so bite me).

Honestly, I cannot wait to see what DC selects from this particular catalog, and what he does with it. Also, who else is willing to bet Brooke picks "Sweet Caroline"? BO-RING.

So please to join me tonight over in the American Idol Forum starting at 8pm for all the Hell Yeahs and Cherry Cherrys and Holly Holys... See you then, betches!

Reminder: American Idol Open Thread Tonight!

ReminderIt's the final six, people. SIX, can you believe it?

Not that anyone stands a chance next to David Cook at this point (Team Cook represent!) -- am I right or am I right? Or, you know, RIGHT?

(By the by, I feel compelled to mention that DC's favorite quote, according to the AI site, is "Pain don't hurt." - Patrick Swayze in "Roadhouse" (I don't know whether to find this hilarious, adorable, or disturbing. Or perhaps all three?).)

ANYWAY, this Earth Day we have some Andrew Lloyd Webber shizzle in the hizzouse, which I'm sure DC will find some obscure-yet-engaging way to rock. So please to join me tonight over in the American Idol Forum starting at 8pm for all the laffs and tears and delicious snark... See you then, mah betches!

Reminder: American Idol Open Thread Tonight!

ReminderWell now that that loser Aussie is out of the way (dude, hottness cannot compensate for consistently middling performances, sorry), we're left with the pothead (boy THAT was a shocker!) and the egotist (who may get some additional play by way of sympathy vote). It's a coin-flip, I know.

Fear not, we're only down to seven, so there's still a chance for miracles and crazy underdog antics to liven things up. So, with that in mind, join me tonight over in the American Idol Forum starting at 8pm, because anything can happen, right? *FINGERS CROSSED*

PS: Maybe we'll even get an extra-speshal dose of post-breakup incoherence from our Paula! Somebody make the contents of that red plastic Coca-Cola cup a double, pronto!

ReminderWe're down to eight, and feelin', errm, great? Great-ish? YEAH! ish!

So suck it up and join me and my enormous bottle of wine tonight over in the American Idol Forum for the continuing saga of endless mediocre mediocrity (with a teeny tiny sprinkle of goodness thrown in for good measure). The frothy stew of pain, embarrassment, and dashed hopes will be served promply at 8pm, BE THERE PEOPLE (I'll share mah wines).

Reminder: American Idol Open Thread Tonight!

ReminderJust a wee reminder for y'all to please join us over at MamaPopTalk's AI forum tonight, 8pm ET for more open thread awesome. Tonight the Top 9 will be under the tutelage of Dolly Parton and her breastises, though it sounds like all three of them will be about at helpful as Paula after a week-long bender. Parton recently said of her appearance on Idol:

I won’t be a judge. I couldn’t do that... I can’t tell people they aren’t doing a good job even if they ask me. To tell someone if they’re good or bad, or if they suck isn’t me.

Greaaaaat. I wonder if she'll start telling the contestants which of her favorite colors they are. Gaaaaaah, I feel can feel my head exploding already.

Please be there tonight to help me through this difficult time. And please bring extra alcohol.

Reminder: American Idol Open Thread Tonight!

ReminderIt can only get better, right? RIGHT?

Join me tonight over in the American Idol Forum, and gufaw with me through all the probable musical horror(s) (sprinkled with one or two decent performances, just to get our hopes up a little so they can then be cruelly dashed on the hard, jagged rocks of incompetence), starting at 8pm ET.

Okay, I'll be blunt: I need you. Hold me?

See you then!
