American Idol’s “Corny” Randy Jackson Planning Own Talk Show

American Idol's "Corny" Randy Jackson Planning Own Talk Show

From the very (that’s very) few times that I’ve seen American Idol judge Randy Jackson always struck me as the corniest corn pone on TV.

As someone once said about him that he probably was a horribly square geek in high school always getting bullied and has now that he’s older has decided to try to come off as the hippest cat out there… except that he misses by a mile.

And please tell me that he isn’t still saying “Yo Dawg” all the time is he???

Anyway that came to mind when when it was revealed today that Jackson, along with an unnamed reality TV show producer, are currently pitching to networks a daytime talk show that he will host to go up against Ellen and the upcoming new talk shows to be hosted by Katie Couric and Anderson Cooper.

According to one person involved with the planned show, Jackson wants to do the show because :“he wants to talk about things that will be hip next. He thinks he has his finger on the pulse.”

You’re kidding? Really? Somehow the words hip and Randy Jackson are diametric opposites as far as I’m concerned. I mean I could do a hipper show than Jackson and I’m squarer than a cube!

This dude stay lookin like a big ol cliche with those earrings. SMH


Randy Jackson is a piece, not the pie. I mean he fit the show but he could never carry a show. He sort of reminds me of the cast members of “friends”. Some of them broke out on their own but flopped miserably.

But again, as a cast member, he has his fans. Come to think of it, his inclusion reminds me of the on goings of the S & A crew. See, if I compared S & A’s crew to a variety of those talent shows, there’s distinct similarities. Okay, lets look at American Idol. Sergio, you’re Simon Cowell. Monique has got to be Paula Abdul. And sometimes they let quests appear, so I’d have to say James Madison is Randy Jackson. Now I am still trying to figure out how Cynthia fits in this pie… Maybe Jennifer Lopez, but I’m not really feeling that one. .. well, to some degree. I don’t know, Cynthia is kind of quiet and reserved.

I know what, I’ll mix a few crews together. Lets see, Tambay will have to be Pierce Morgan, you know, the serious guy who’s originally from another country. And wait, this is really working out because we all know that in every crew/cast there are personalities that clash. Oh yeah, they have some off-screen stuff going on, so let me continue.

As I mentioned, sometimes guest hosts appear, so in walks Howie Mandel, aka, CareyCarey. Hey, different personalities are what makes a show click and they each have their own supporters.

Anyway, there you have it. What do you think?


And here I was thinking you had some juicy to share! A Randy Jackson talk show?!!! I’ll pass! *lol*
