Goodbye Michael Johns, Hello Michael Scott!

And Michael Johns has just been dismissed from "American Idol."

I can honestly say I wasn’t as surprised or shocked as everyone else in Hollywood appeared to be … Good lord, Ryan Seacrest announced Carly and Syesha were safe and the cameras seemed to focus on Michael’s dead eyes and the audiences dropped jaws for what seemed like a half the show …

As tonight’s elimination show started, I predicted Carly, Michael and David Cook in the bottom three. Actually David’s performance was the only one I really didn’t like in what was a pretty uninspiring week. (I seriously considered not even watching the “Idol Gives Back” special on Wednesday… Don’t get me started … ) But let’s face it, we’re getting down to the nitty-gritty and the cuts are going to be harder and harder each week. And, added to David’s poor performance, I’m getting the impression that Carly and Michael are on the lower rungs of the popularity ladder …

For awhile, I was rooting for Michael as hard as the next guy. But the dude roared on “Bohemian Rhapsody” in Hollywood Week and never topped it. Since song choices were good, but not perfect. His vocals had a similar fate. And because of that I never figured him to win the competition. It was his time to go, fair and square.

Now let’s get to the real good stuff -- “30 Rock” and “The Office” are returning!
