But in 1981, years after his successful career and star fading, Holmes was a desperate man with his own internal demons to live up to. Hes estranged from his wife (Lisa Kudrow), holding onto a relationship with his teenage mistress (Kate Bosworth), and living as a junkie in search of his next fix. But one fateful night left four people dead and John as a key suspect in one of the most grisly murders in Los Angeles. Was he partly responsible for what happened at Wonderland Avenue?

    Plot: Based on the Dutch series, thirteen strangers who are living in a studio-like house thats filled with cameras and microphones, compete in a series of physical and mental stunts, and some challenging trivia at a chance at $500,000 in this reality soap opera-like summer program. Thirteen of those house guests live in 13 different states. America will watch every single move they compete to be the last one standing, after having twelve house guests evicted. These strangers are the contestants who think they have absolutely nothing in common, and a few are in a shock for their lives. The house guests begin to introduce other people at the Big Brother house. Its the first time they will get to know each other and theyre not allowed to say not one word with them until they are in the Big Brother house. The thirteen will be living in the same house for the following two months. They may either find their best friend or worst enemy in that group; and in the end, its one men for themselves. Then, contestants who have performed their stunts were asked to vote for the person who should be kicked out of the house (which happens to be the loser), and the guest with the most votes, is the loser and will be evicted from the Big Brother household. However, if the participant wins his/her stunts, then the player will be named “Head of the Household,” for a day. The guest who stays in the house longer than anybody else does wins $500,000.

    Plot: A family that has faced hardship has their dilapidated house completely rebuilt while they are away on vacation for a week. While early episodes renovated houses, the usual approach is to tear down the house on the first day and build a brand new, usually much larger, one, fully furnished. The houses are customized to the families, with rooms reflecting the interests of, especially, the children, and special technology for any unusual medical conditions. Host Ty Pennington usually has a “secret” project which is only revealed when the family sees it. The construction is accomplished with the help of a large army of blue-shirted volunteers and a wide array of sponsor-donated products and services.

    Plot: Twelve finalists and/or future singers (six men and six women) who were selected from America, compete in a talent contest in which they were asked to sing any song they like on this “Star Search” clone. After each song that was sung, the judges, Abdul, Jackson and Cowell, then critique that finalists chosen song. After each shows ending, America must vote for a finalist to whom they really think their performance is good using this AT&T (now Cingular Wireless) or any other cellular phone to cast votes with. Once the votes are locked in, the judges and America decides who has the most and the least amount of votes, and the contestant with the least amount of votes is eliminated, and it goes on each weeks show until the winner is crowned as “American Idol,” where he/she wins a recording contract worth up to $1,000,000.

    • Two brothers from Denver named Jimmy and Scott Osterman were among the hopefuls at the “American Idol 2″ tryouts in Austin, Texas. Their audition, which included a cringe-making version of Paula Abduls “Opposites Attract”, had judge Simon Cowell about to deliver a scathing putdown when the pair revealed themselves to be Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly in disguise and that Cowell was the victim of a practical joke for their show "Ant & Decs Saturday Night Takeaway" (2002). McPartlin and Donnelly are also the hosts of "Pop Idol" (2001) the original British show from which “American Idol” is adapted, and for which Cowell also serves as a judge.
    • At the Miami auditions during the second season, a young man named Edgar Nova was rejected after delivering an off-key rendition of Enrique Iglesias “My Love”. Despite this, he re-entered the tryout line, telling other hopefuls that the judges had asked him to do so. Security was called to escort Nova from the audition venue. Undaunted, Nova flew to Los Angeles at his own expense and appeared at the tryouts there, sporting a different hairstyle in hopes that the judges would not recognize him. They did, but they allowed him another audition, after which he was rejected yet again.
    • Edgar Nova, who unsuccessfully auditioned for Season 2 twice (once in Miami and once in Los Angeles), appeared yet again, this time at the New York auditions for Season 3. Though the judges said that they admired Novas tenacity, with Simon Cowell even shaking hands with him, his audition was once again unsuccessful.
