Are You in Camp Lambert or Camp Allen?

As we head into the final week of American Idol competition, where do you stand: firmly ensconced in Camp Adam Lambert or Camp Kris Allen?

Me, I’m in Camp Lambert. It took me a while to get onboard – specifically, it was that “Motown Week” performance of “The Tracks of My Tears,” where Adam sang his dooper off and styled himself to look like a retro cool Elvis – that made it undeniable that he was not only crazy talented, but also super savvy when it comes to understanding how to play the whole music industry game. Adam, more so than any other Idol contender ever, gets it.

But, as Jimmy Kimmel points out in this clip, the ‘tween factor will play a big role in who’s named the season eight Idol, and, like, those ‘tweens might totally start some sort of, like, anti-Adam campaign to get their hottie fave Kris named the winner:

Channel Surfing – May 12

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Tonight’s Real Housewives of New York City reunion special is promising HUGE drama, including a well-deserved smackdown for the uber-annoying Ramona.

– And it’s a doubleheader of catty reality drama, as The Real Housewives of New Jersey debuts tonight, too.

Dr. Oz bids Oprah adieu today, as the TV doc prepares to launch his own talk show in September.

– NBC will air a two-hour special devoted to TV’s best catchphrases on May 26. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

– The Jon & Kate saga gets juicier: Now there’s gossip that Jon’s not the only one who’s engaging in extracurricular activities.

– NBC has passed on the pilot for a new David E. Kelley legal drama. Given some of the crazy antics and storylines of the last couple of seasons of Boston Legal, that seems like a good idea. It’s probably time for Kelley to tackle a new topic.

– Sadly for Gilmore Girls fans, Lauren Graham‘s sitcom pilot is also reportedly dead at ABC.

Scrubs, meanwhile, is looking less and less dead.

Mama Partridge … naked?!?! No. No, no, no, no, no.

Simon Cowell is yet again predicting that Adam Lambert will win American Idol. Duh.

– Seen the pictures of Kiefer Sutherland‘s alleged victim in Headbuttgate? So, we probably don’t know the whole story yet, but all these photos show is a dude with a bandage on his nose. Anyone can put a bandage on a nose – it’s no proof of what damage is or isn’t underneath it. Just sayin’.

What Will the ‘AI’ Top 3 Sing?

Wondering what Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey and Kris Allen might sing tomorrow night (Fox, 8PM ET), as the top three American Idol finalists take the stage to perform tunes selected for them by the judges?

AJC.com has shared some alleged scoop: Danny will sing Terence Trent D’Arby‘s “Dance Little Sister,” Kris will sing One Republic‘s “Apologize” and Adam will reprotedly croon U2‘s “One” and/or Chris Isaak‘s “Wicked Game.”

The Kris and Adam picks seem right on, but the D’Arby tune seems a little upbeat for Danny. His voice matches up to D’Arby’s, but let’s be honest, Gokey hasn’t really proved that he knows how to get down and funky with his bad self.

Whatcha think? What would be your perfect pick for each of the three finalists?

Channel Surfing – May 7

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– I still can’t believe that Adam Lambert‘s sexuality is such an issue … like being gay in the entertainment industry is such a new phenomenon? Or being gay on American Idol for that matter. Whatever. Adam lands a solo cover on the new Entertainment Weekly, even before he wins the show, as “the most exciting American Idol contestant in years.” Can’t argue with that.

– It’s not Project Runway, but the Runway-ish The Fashion Show, which debuts tonight on Bravo (10PM ET), does have the fabulous Isaac Mizrahi.

Grey’s Anatomy airs its 100th episode tonight (ABC, 9PM), and it’s supposed to include a McDreamy/Meredith wedding. Supposed to being the key part of that sentence.

– Even if the Mer/Der wedding does go down, will it be one of the best tube weddings ever? Maybe one of the worst? I countdown a few of each at Hollywood.com today.

– Are you more or less likely to watch the new season of Jon & Kate Plus 8 on May 25, given the whole affair brouhaha?

– Tomorrow’s Good Morning America will feature Diane Sawyer’s interview with Connie Culp, the woman whose face transplant made headlines this week.

Chuck executive producer McG weighs in optimistically to Sci Fi Wire about the show’s chances for a third season on NBC. It’s tough to remember the last time an on-the-bubble series generated as much support and good will as Chuck has, so here’s hoping again that it returns next season.

Seth Green and his Robot Chicken cohorts are bringing another show to Adult Swim.

– Only The Big O could incite riots by trying to give away some damn chicken.

– Is it just me, or do most of the contestants on the new season of The Bachelorette look alike?

– And Simon Cowell reportedly earns $36 million a season for American Idol, while co-judge Paula Abdul nets “just” $2 million. Sounds right to me.

Channel Surfing – April 28

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Last night’s Chuck season (NOT series!) finale rocked, but I am sooo happy I gave up on Heroes before this ridiculous season finale, though, like most of those who are still watching, prolly wouldn’t have understood what the frick was going on anyway.

– Next week’s Scrubs season finale may not be the series finale after all. Talks continue to bring back the show – likely with some new cast members – for a ninth season.

– Lisa Rinna doesn’t want to go back to Melrose Place. She’s got cougar aspirations instead.

Big Love‘s recently concluded third season was far and away the show’s best, but yes, Roman (Harry Dean Stanton) really is dead and staying that way.

– FX is already one of my favorite cable destination – Sons of Anarchy, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Damages … – and it’s only getting better: Timothy Olyphant is starring in an upcoming FX drama pilot based on Elmore Leonard‘s Fire in the Hole. Go and Deadwood star Olyphant will play a U.S. Marshal who returns to his Kentucky hometown.

– The Jonas Brothers are hosting the Teen Choice Awards in August. Ahhhh! Squeal!

– Wondering what Matthew Bomer, the almost-Superman and former Guiding Light star, will do now that his Bryce Larkin bit the dust on Chuck last night? He’s signed on to star in what promises to be another character-driven hit on USA.

J.J. Abrams says ‘Down with spoilers!’

Tribbles were TV’s first bisexuals?! Seems so.

– All of a sudden, American Idol watchers are jumping on the Kris Allen bandwagon. Why? Methinks they’re bored by the fact that Adam is so far and away the best performer – and the only one consistently worth tuning in for – on the show. As for Kris, he’s not terrible, but he’s kinda the equivalent of a mayonnaise-and-processed American cheese sandwich on two pieces of Wonder Bread. Though perhaps not as doughy.

Adam, BTW, has sparked his own dictionary.

Life-size wax figures of the Seinfeld cast … me want.

Talkin’ With … ‘Wilfred’ Star Jason Gann About Season 2

Charlie Sheen, Russell Brand and Louis C.K. are getting most of the attention, but I’m most excited that one of the best new shows of last TV season — Wilfred — returns for its second season on FX tonight (10PM ET). Season one of the series ended with a cliffhanger — had Ryan (Elijah Wood) […]
