    it's ientertaining, but has very bad timing, it's facing off with smaville or supernatural, the show can't possibley believe it can beat smallville or supernatural , it's not even in the running if it tries to compare itself to those 2 shows. people have history with those shows.

Anyway, I find the judges entertaining and their honest remarks to these contestants makes for a fantastic hour of television.

    I don't know what these other people were watching, but so far I love the show. I've seen the first 2 episodes (all that is out at the time) and often find myself (almost) in tears from the heart some of these inventors have. I love the show and the creative ideas some of these inventions are, and also the hilariously dumb ones. Just give the show a chance if you're in I don't know what these other people were watching, but so far I love the show.

  1. How un-innovative is this series about innovation? Let me count the ways.

    The results suggest that everyone involved looked at American Idol too closely. And this time around, everyone is startlingly off-key.

    At almost every level, "American Inventor" is over-produced.
