Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio You can't say there's nothing to watch tonight. Two very popular shows will be going head to head.
What are people in Utah going to be watching: Game 2 of the series between the Jazz and the Spurs or the season finale of American Idol? People I spoke with have strong feelings on the matter.
"We're going to watch the Jazz beat San Antonio," one person says. "I watch American Idol," says another.
One Utahn couldn't care less about the Jazz game. When asked if he knows the Jazz are playing tonight he says, "Yeah, and I don't care." He says he's from here, but that he "can't stand" the Jazz. When asked why, he says, "I think they're all chumps."
Of the people interviewed by KSL Radio, more adults are planning to watch the game, while the kids want to see American Idol. One man says he wants it all. "That's what Tivo is for." He'll be all set with both the Jazz game and American Idol.
For people without Tivo, you could try two TVs in the same room, which might sound loud and confusing. By the way, the American Idol fans say they want Blake to win.
