(this is how i view a conversation between mike and the mad dog about last night's american idol finale might have gone)
Chris: So, Mikey, David Cook won the American Idol last night and I will tell you i was shocked. Shocked. You got Simon at the end of the first night declaring it a knockout for the Archibata kid (it is correctly pronounced Archuletta) and if you ask me, the kid did great and deserved to win. Now you might say, HOLD ON NOW CHRIS, Archibata sang two new songs and then brought back Imagine which he sang in week 3 and Cook did three new songs, and so he deserved it more. Now, here's what i will say to that. He did IMAGINE in week 3, it's not like he's pulling some song out that he did just a week ago (he moves his hands up and down) and i know there's all this YouTute or YouTube and the ITUNES and all that and everyone is doing the thing with the headphones. I understand that, but it's WEEK THREE and EVERYONE LOVED IT. Mike, the kid deserved to win. I thought it was a terrible job by the American voters.
Mike: I thought Cook was going to win (the night before he predicted Archuletta). I thought that, and here's the thing, sometimes and this is what i thought was going to happen, sometimes Simon can say something and people vote against him. I think that's what happened here. America and the voters resented the whole knock out thing and i think that what you saw here was the voters saying, Simon don't tell me what to do.
Chris: You may be right Mike but the kid... the KID DESERVED TO WIN... Here's another thing, can someone please tell Fox to stop plugging their movies during the show. I don't need to see this thing for this Mike Moyers (it's actually Mike Myers) movie GORU (it's actually GURU) being shoved down my face, it's not even funny. PLEASE SOMEONE.. YOU MAKE ENOUGH MONEY FOX. IT's bad enough i got to sit there and watch with Timmy and he's asking me for a Coke every ten minutes because i got RED COKE BOTTLES IN EVERY SHOT of Randy, Paula and Simon..
Mike: It's advertising dollars. They do it. Everyone is doing it.
Chris: It's terrible. Timmy is jacked up on Cokes running around till 4 in the morning because of these things.
Mike: Now, one other thing about the finale. You got Graham Nash on there
Chris: Great job to get Graham Nash. Very good job out of them. Donna Summer, ZZ Top that's another story, but Graham Nash, great job.
Mike: You got Graham Nash and the girl Brooke. Now i understand the girl is nervous. She stopped and started songs three different times this year.
Chris: I think it was two times, Mike
Mike: Three times this year is what i said.
Chris: Yes, but it was only twice, when she did that song by the band with Sting.. uh... EDDIE what's that band with Sting?
Eddie Erickson: (from the Control Room) The Police
Chris: The Police. She did the Roxanne song and had to restart and then she was doing the Andrew LLoyd Weber number and also had to do the restart. So two times.
Mike: Right, two times is what i said... So you are singing with Graham Nash and i get the whole thing, the girl gets nervous, but can she put some shoes on? You are on NATIONAL TELEVISION. There are millions of people watching. PUT SOMETHING ON YOUR FEET. This is Graham Nash, he played at Woodstock. I mean COME ON.. If you were playing with the Miley Sirus or whatever her name is would you put your shoes on? Put them on. Please. Show a little respect. Something on your feet. I am watching in high def on my four televisions, I got the Spurs Lakers on one tv, the Yankees on another, the Mets on another and American Idol on the big one. I look away, Kobe's knocking down a jumper to tie the game in the fourth, I turn back and there's a girl, sitting wtihout her shoes on with Graham Nash. He's a HALL OF FAMER FOR GOD'S SAKES. PUT SOME SHOES ON.
Chris: Great point Mike. I wasn't paying attention to that, but great point. Still Mikey, the Archibatta kid should've won. We got John Minko now for the update. Mink-Man what do you think, who should've won last night? Archibatta or Cook?
Minko: I didn't watch
Chris: You didn't watch?
Minko: It is not a show that I watch.
Chris: JOOOHN.. THAT IS A TERRIBLE JOB. IT IS THE FINALS OF AMERICAN IDOL. THE FINALS. THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE SHOW IN AMERICA. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE WATCHING THAT SHOW JOHN MINKO. WHAT ELSE COULD YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING LAST NIGHT IN THE MINKO HOUSEHOLD?
Minko: I was watching the Spurs game.
Chris: THE SPURS GAME? THAT"S A 7 GAME SERIES. YOU GOT ABOUT 100 MORE OF THOSE TO WATCH. TERRIBLE JOB. WE GOT COOK AND ARCHIBATTA AND THEY ARE GOING AGAINST EACH OTHER, IT"S THE BEST FINAL IN YEARS, PROBABLY SINCE BO BICE AND THE UNDERWEAR GIRL ("underwood" is the correct pronounciation). YOU HAVE GOT TO BE WATCHING MINKO.
Minko: I need to do the update.
Chris: Are you at least including American Idol in the update?
Minko: Uh.. no
Chris: Mike come on, say something here. This is TERRRRIBLE. This is the biggest show. 92 Million votes. If Minko isn't going to watch, which he should've, then he has to at least include it in the update.
Mike: It should be in the update Mink.
Minko: Uh.. this is a sports station.
Mike: It should be in.
Chris: Mike is right.. TERRRIBLE JOB... We go to the update, here is the very American Idol uninformed, John Minko.
(cue update music)
Minko: Thanks Chris. A big win for the Yanks and another loss for the Mets, but first, David Cook declared the upset winner in American Idol. Here's Ed Coleman with reports from the winners circle...
