By now you've heard that Ellen DeGeneres will be replacing Paula Abdul on American Idol this season. They've dumped the lunatic for the lesbian.
If they'd picked Rosie O'Donnell, they could have gotten twice the bang for their buck. Just sayin'.
"Hopefully, I'm the people's point of view because I'm just like you," DeGeneres said on her syndicated talk show Thursday. "I sit at home and I watch it, and I don't have that technical ... I'm not looking at it in a critical way from the producer's mind. I'm looking at it as a person who is going to buy the music and is going to relate to that person."
DeGeneres' hiring as the show's fourth judge all but seals the departure of Abdul, the original third judge who announced she was quitting amid a contract dispute in July.
