It happens every year. Shortly after the "American Idol" finale, you realize the show isn't coming back for about another eight months. This year, that realization is especially heartbreaking -- since we don't know how "Idol" will be when it returns. It's safe to say that after this season, lots of us have tragically low expectations.
So what are you doing to numb the pain? Have you found another TV show to follow? Many "Idol" addicts get their summer fix with either "America's Got Talent" or "So You Think You Can Dance." I fall into the latter category.
How about you?
