Dancing With The Stars Results Should Have Giles Marini New Fav

Early Dancing With The Stars odds had Olympian Shawn Johnson as the easy early favorite.  After all, she's a gymnast and that should equate to good dancing, right?

Well there appear to be two better than Johnson, with Lil Kim not too shabby either.  Giles Marini and Melissa Rycroft both scored better Monday night with the judges.  Following Tuesday night's Dancing With The Stars results show, Marini should be the new favorite to win.

American Idol Recap: A Real Snoozefest

Is it us or is this season's crop of American Idol contestants some of the biggest letdowns? 

This American Idol recap can be summed up sorta like this:  "Nobody was really worth writing about except for Adam Lambert".  I mean, seriously, our own Jenny Woo once performed "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on the infamous Cindy Margolis Show a few years back, and she put more effort into THAT than most of these Idol wannabes did this week.  Simon (Cowell) certainly could have been a whole lot crueler.
