Rumor: Google in talks with American Idol co-creator


The Guardian reports that Google is in talks with Simon Fuller, the man behind Britain's Pop Idol, America's American Idol, The Spice Girls, and a whole bunch of other sugar-coated pop icons. Although these talks have reportedly been going on for the past year, it's not clear what, if anything Google and Fuller are planning, other than the fact that it will have something to do with TV.

So here our are top guesses:
  1. Who can count to a Googleplex? - a game show where contestants have to count out loud to see who can go the longest without eating, sleeping, or losing their voice.
  2. American searcher - a talent show where 10 contestants go in, and at the end of 10 weeks, the person who can perform the quickest, most accurate searches wins ummm... something that they've been searching for.
  3. Dancing with Google AdWords - A weekly dance-off competition not unlike those you may have seen elsewhere, but Google gets to insert the ads.
  4. Lost... and Found - a short run miniseries that shows how quickly you can get off an island if you just have a good internet connection.
  5. Google isn't actually interested in a TV show, they just want to clear the rights to use the name "Google Fuller" for a new search product.
What do you think Google and Fuller are up to?
