Why “Voice” Is Better Than “Idol”

I can’t say I’ve felt even marginally more compelled by “The Voice,” the “American Idol”-type show on NBC. Alyssa Rosenberg disagrees, saying that the former is much more gay friendly than the latter: “I’ve never really fallen for competition reality shows before. I dislike American Idol‘s tendency to humiliate candidates who aren’t remotely qualified. I can’t taste the food on Top Chef. And I did watch my way through a full season of Project Runway before its move from Bravo to Lifetime, but it never quite stuck. But I’ve finally fallen for one: I am totally, insanely obsessed with The Voice.”
