In the news: Canadian Idol ‘nicer’ than American version

Kate Taylor of the Globe and Mail compares the Canadian and American editions of Idol:

  • Kindler, gentler and bleep-free
    “Are Canadians nicer than Americans? Television producer John Brunton has his suspicions. Brunton is the executive producer of Canadian Idol, the local franchise of the hugely popular reality show and singing contest, and he readily agrees his version is kinder to the contestants than the sometimes vicious American Idol.”
