So "American Idol" is on again (7 p.m., Fox). And it's two hours again. More ominously, it's Grand Ole Opry week.

Idolator suggests some song choices that would not be terrible, but it's totally gonna be all Garth Brooks and Shania Twain.

The AP has a story out today about the role Christianity plays in "American Idol."

After "American Idol" finalist Kris Allen first stepped onto the stage of the Fox singing competition, the 23-year-old college student later confided in his pastor that feeling the warm stage lights and seeing the eager audience looking up at him reminded him of only one thing: going to church.

The article also considers what's surely the third most important voting bloc behind women and gay men, the Christian community.

But it doesn't matter, the show's fixed, according to an anonymous "AI" source cited on Gatecrasher, who says that producers and the four judges have picked the top four already.
