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.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
