WHAT'S THE DEAL? - In the past we've asked who is the mysterious the Telescope company that supposedly tabulates the final votes for the winner of the Idol contest. We have yet to find any information about the company on the Internet. Yes Idol is an entertaining program but there are too many unanswered questions. As popular as the show is it comes off as a shell game on the street corners of New York and the public is being hustled. The elimination this past week of Pia Toscano who was in the bottom three for the first time after turning in the most professional and consistent performances throughout the season raises more questions about the flaws in the voting system. - Recommended TV Listings
