atleast your DVR's actually recorded the show...lucky you. I worked that night, got home in time to watch the last five minutes and the announcement. My roommates kept telling me that it was a great show with some good performances so I settled down to watch the whole show that was DVR'd. I watched the first six minutes and then there was a power glitch at our house so the recording was interrupted. Then like always the recording re-started in another recording. I went to watch the second part of the recording and ooops....not there. The entire remaining hour and 54 minutes of the recording taped PBS instead of FOX. The DVR said that it was recording American Idol, channel 6 but it was in fact recording PBS channel 7.

I wonder if anyone else had this problem with comcast that night...It was really frustrating!

Del MOnte has offered the "Idol" winner Cook a lucrative deal to pose alongside various Head resembling fruits and Vegetables. One TV spot would have David laying in the bed of a truck filled with watermelons and covering every part of his body except his head. In the commercial, as the camera zooms closer and closer from above , the watermelon face painted David begins to sing and you think its a real "singing watermelon" then he says "Hello, I'm David Cook and you should eat more melons."
