Warning - AMERICAN IDOL SPOILER ALERT!
In the DVR age, I watch almost nothing in real time. At the least, I'll start a show 30 minutes late, speed through commercials, and finish shortly after the real time ending. if I start watching the DVR recording too soon, I catch up to real time, and have to watch commercials like a commoner. It's a lot like this:
Internet sources have gotten much better at recognizing the fact that many viewers don't even watch the shows until a day or two later, and they no longer post spoiler headlines, even the next morning. "LEE DEWYZE WINS AMERICAN IDOL," usually gets transformed into the non-spoiler "American Idol Crowns New Champ," letting you click the story if you want to know who won, and avoid ruining the surprise if you haven't yet watched.
The NY Times though, last night, had Lee Dewyze's victory splattered front and center on their main page last night less than an hour after he won. Thanks for the spoiler alert, goofballs.
