ABC’s ‘This Week’ (American Idol Style)

Ever since George Stephanopoulos’s departure from ABC’s ‘This Week’, the program has been a stage for his replacement. No one has been named his successor, but several are in the running. So FishbowlDC has decided to turn this into an online reality show, get judges on board and turn each week into an American Idol-esque competition. ‘This Week’ (American Idol Style) begins today and lasts until a host is chosen. We can’t vote anyone off the island. But like the American Idol judges, ours offer the contestants constructive criticism. Write us your comments at and we’ll post samplings (keep it clean and free of too much hate and we’ll all have a good time here).

Meet the Judges:
1. HuffPost’s Jason Linkins, editor of “Eat the Press” who live blogs each Sunday about the political talk show circuit.
2. The Examiner’s Yeas & Nays Columnists Nikki Schwab and Tara Palmeri.
3. Carol Joynt, the Washington columnist for New York Social Diary, was a producer for ‘This Week’ during the David Brinkley days.

Sunday’s ‘This Week’ host (this week): Terry Moran.
