I would like to formally complain about the length of the program.
We watched the show last night however, we were about 35 minutes behind. Therefore, our Tivo did not record the extra length.
It was UTTERLY disappointing to get to the end of the program and not see who won or the final song, etc.
There were aspects of the show that were entertaining, and we did watch the whole thing. However, it would be much better for fox to cut out some of the filler or maybe even a few commercials so that you do not damage your fan loyalty in this way. It is NOT smart to alienate those fans who use TiVo or some or DVR device.
