“With five years of discovery and surprises, the format really did create credible stars. But this year, with every round Sanjaya stayed in the competition, viewers began questioning the voting process. And that doubt dampens passion—and ratings.”

“Likely oversaturation—too many telecasts. Every year or so, some network pushes the ‘overuse’ envelope. Remember ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ and ‘Trading Spaces,’ just for starters? Will our business ever learn?”

Gary Lico, president and CEO, CABLEready, and co-founder and president, CableU
