Gangbusters was one of the few series to be cancel on Xmas day. Thank goodness I am not in their shoes! Who want a bittersweet Xmas?

Hmm, The Big Idea! Hey, I got a great idea. Why don't we get the nasty American Idol judge, Simon Cowell, produce a series just like that? Oh, man! The name is coming to me. Let's call it American Inventor! Wow! What a name! With Simon, American Inventor won't fail, unlike The Big Idea. Sadly, some great ideas were stolen. Got that, Peter Jones?
