MSNBC Idol?

New York Times TV critic Alessandra Stanley gives her list of “top contenders” for “most compelling television moments of the year.” The list of mostly television shows includes The Wire and Mad Men, but also MSNBC’s Morning Joe:

This MSNBC early-morning political klatch is oddly addictive, even though its hosts at times come off like a cable news version of ‘American Idol.’ Joe Scarborough is Simon Cowell, the Randy Jackson role is divided between Pat Buchanan and Mike Barnicle, and Mika Brzezinski is Paula Abdul, always seeking to say something nice about politicians the others mock. Willie Geist is their Ryan Seacrest, only much funnier.
