obama vs. american idol

Adam Lambert is getting too much mention on here in the past 48 hours, and I'm not so happy about it, but whatever.

Last night Obama addressed the nation on ABC, CBS, NBC and Univision networks.... Everywhere but FOX. They had more important things to do... The Idol elimination show with Taylor Hicks, Jamie Foxx and Natalie Cole all performing.

In case you didn't know, American Idol is still doing pretty great in the ratings-- #1. So even if you don't watch it, a lot of people do, and not airing Obama wouldn't hurt the network much.

In fact, 22 million people watched Obama on all of those networks COMBINED. 21.8 million people tuned in for AI.

That's pretty crazy. The same amount of people watched the President and a reality TV show... Just sayin'.
