A couple weeks ago, I wrote about Glee and Smash and the death of the TV musical. Soon after it was published, I realized I hadn't mentioned Nashville. Then it dawned of me that that's because I don't consider it a musical; it's a drama, in the most dramatic way possible, with some music -- albeit, fantastic -- thrown in.
As 'The X Factor' comes to an end this week, I wonder what will become of the show in its third season. Even though Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato bicker like a petulant teenager and irksome uncle, I quite like their relationship. I never thought they would share much chemistry, but the 'X Factor' duo has been delightful to watch, which made me think of other pairs on other shows that have been a surprising treat.
