I've been saying it for weeks in my reviews and on the boards but last night just clinched it for me; this show needs to stick with an one hour format. In the half hour form it is just too beset with commercials and filler to be bearable. I sat through the whole show last night and felt like I'd gotten some entertainment value out of it for once. Even though the forced suspense of revealling words is still annoying, I liked the contestants and Wayne's commentary so much that I didn't mind the 30 second to 1 minute long breath-holding induced by the lyrics revelation. The ad time alotted for this format is much more proportional as well, it is much like it should be 5-10 minutes of show and then 2-4 minutes of ads. Whereas in the half hour format the time spent on ads is more like a ratio of 5:1. 5 minutes of ads for every one minute of show. I hope I'm not alone on thinking this way, but I would really like to see Fox change the show to a hour permanently. Thoughts?
