American Idol vs. So You Think You Can Dance

at . Comments

They're two of the most popular reality shows on TV. With that in mind, The New York Daily News took it upon itself to compared the judges on American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance.

To wit:

THE TWITS: Paula Abdul vs. Mary Murphy

Similarities: The goofy brunettes both devote a lot of their critiques to the contestants' appearance. Murphy's signature comment is to label a dancer sexy enough to ride on her "hot tamale train," which is about as nonsensical and confusing as most of what Abdul says. They're both loopy, loud and the least likely to be taken seriously.

Differences: While Abdul hardly ever has a bad thing to say, Murphy doesn't hold back when she thinks a contestant stinks. However, Murphy is a ballroom-dancing champion, so she actually knows what she's talking about. Abdul sang "Opposites Attract" next to a cartoon of MC Skat Kat.
