Another year, another loss.
For the seventh year in a row, “American Idol” lost to “The Amazing Race” for best reality competition. In fact, “Race” has won every single year the category has existed. The voters base their votes on a single episode and face it, “Amazing Race” is an extraordinary show in terms of logistics and entertainment. It brings more drama than “Idol” from that perspective on any single episode.
Ryan Seacrest also lost in the second year of the best reality show host competition, again to Jeff Probst of “Survivor.”
But in the grand scheme of things, who cares, eh?
And hey, at least Bruce Gowers, the “Idol” director, finally won in his category for the first time in seven.
