With my wife behind me watching her own *delayed* American Idol finale, I remembered the incredible ending of last year's competition. Bear in mind that it was DAVID Cook versus DAVID Archuleta:
My DVR had cut off at the same exact juncture.
Though, not being a Moron, I had recorded the subsequent show as well.
That was pretty amazing though, where it cut off: "American Idol 2008 is.....David---"
I imagine at the time, there was a whole lot of cursing out there in Comcast Country by clowns who've never recorded a ball game that's overrun its time slot.
