What’s Hot on TV Tonight – Hollywood Week on Idol

It’s Hollywood week on American Idol, and that’s always guaranteed to be major drama, which sometimes turns out to be pivotal. Remember Scotty McCreery “auditioning” groups to find the right one last year? Turned out okay for him. I also need to add in a note to Chris, that while he wants to see some College Football tonight, sadly, it’s over until a spring game in April. Check out your other favorite shows at TV-Links.
