Does anyone else admit to watching American Idol? It’s like a trainwreck — I just can’t look away.
Anyway, this show has never had its “correct” domain name. Almost famously, the show has been at idolonfox.com because someone must have snapped up americanidol.com ages ago, apparently. I looked at what was there last year, but I can’t remember now.
This year, they’re proudly advertising americanidol.com as their domain name, so they must have negotiated its purchase in the off season. Given the popularity of the show and the financial resources of the producers, I shudder to think how much they had to pay for the name.
Talk about holding all the cards — the guy with that domain name must have had a field day selling it.
