Corey’s spokesman issues a statement about Idol finale bit.

While I hate to give him even more attention, this is too pathetic to ignore: Corey Clark has had his people/person release a statement about the American Idol 4 parody of his claims. Corey’s spokesman, Jed Wallace, says that “By choosing to spoof such a serious situation on last night’s final episode, FOX and American Idol have collectively made a complete mockery of their viewers, their sponsors, and the FCC.” After expressing a lot of shock, horror, and indignation–delivered with doses of faulty parallelism and other fun grammatical errors–the release/statement ends with this question: “Ratings or no ratings, where is your professionalism, honor, and integrity?”

Oh, the irony.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
