If you don’t watch “American Idol,” move on. The other 30 million of you—let’s dish. Here are my thoughts on last night’s show. Email me yours and I’ll post them. The audience is still booing the departure of Michael Johns, or maybe they're still booing Ryan for cruelly leaving the Aussie hanging a few moments last week.
