What the *blank* is up with American Idol?

I find watching the really bad people kind of funny, but I can't stand watching this show. It is 2 hours with about 50,000 commercials and endless banter. What's the ratio of show (and actual singing) to promotional product placement, commercial breaks and meaningless footage that has no bearing or interest to anyone?
