I tried several times to paste here a list of the ''Idol'' Top 24 and their brief bios, and the lines kept getting messed up. So I'll just have to suggest you go to Idol contestants.
Published reports indicate that ''Idol'' again beat the Olympics which, as I said last night, is very bad news for the Olympics since there will be five prime-time hours of ''Idol'' next week.
''Lost'' also took a bite out of the Olympics, though apparently not as big a one as I had anticipated yesterday. Still, it beat NBC among young adults, the audience networks believe that advertisers prize. Unfortunately, ''Lost'' has scheduled yet another rerun for next week.
