Okay, I don't really keep up with American Idol a whole lot... just doesn't light my fire, I guess. But their show comes on right before Fringe on Tuesday nights, and lately they have been pre-empting the first five minutes or so.
Which then means that either the DVR cuts Fringe off five minutes from the end -- something you DO NOT DO to Fringe because that's when you find out what the HECK has been going on during the episode -- or the nine o'clock news comes on and just totally steps on the last five minutes. Either way, you get the raw end of the deal if you divver the show.
Thank God for Hulu, but it makes me mad that I even have to resort to it.
