Our long national suffering almost over.
This Sunday, The Weeknd will end as “The Idol” wraps its “season” with its fifth episode.
There were supposed to be six episodes all told but someone realized there’s no plot anyway, nothing has happened, and why continue?
Last Sunday’s episode was the third in a row with basically the same ratings. Just 133,000 people watched on the HBO linear channel. That was the same as last week and 2,000 fewer than the previous week.
“The Idol” will not be returning, and if HBO is smart they’ll wipe it from Max and streaming. Let it sink like the lost city of Atlantis and never be found again. All they need to do is study social media reactions, and the plug will be pulled forever.
