From TV Dinner to Ticket Winner

It all started 10 years ago when America met (and was collectively offended by) Simon Cowell. Television viewers went from being a passive audience to active voters, and Kelly Clarkson went from being an unknown pop-star wannabe to a wildly successful recording artist with more than 23 million albums sold to date. Like it or hate it, American Idol transformed the TV world and remains as popular today as it was back in 2002.
