Tawdry? Untalented? Let's get to the point -- will he bring eyeballs to the tube? No sooner did ABC's Good Morning America cancel a Wednesday performance by purported singer but fer-sure nasty boy Adam Lambert than the CBS Early Show snapped him up. Lambert was dumped from Good Morning America after ABC got an earful of viewer complaints about his sleazy performance over the weekend on the network's telecast of the American Music Awards. (He put his hands, and crotch, in places they shouldn't have been, at least on primetime broadcast television.)
But Early Show, the last-place contender among the morning shows, promptly extended its own Wednesday invitation, and Lambert accepted. Just two grandmas watching on behalf of the Parents Television Council to provide affidavits for its FCC complaint will probably double the Early Show's audience.
