TV viewers love competitions. Which is probably why TV producers love to televise them, and the TV trade press, of course, loves to write about them. So it shouldn't be surprising that hardly any time lapsed between the closing ceremonies of the Beijing Summer Olympic Games, and the television wind-up of the next big competition series. No, not the new season of Fox's "American Idol" -- the roadblock coverage of TV's "American President." It should surprise no one that the Democratic National Convention is the TV industry's next big story. But how journalists are writing it, surprised even me.
