Sixteen-year-old Jessica Sanchez sang for "the save" last night on "American Idol" and the judges did not let her down.

Ah, that special time of year when our favorite shows hopefully find renewal, and where some of the worse efforts of the season make their last stand. We don't sit around penting our fingers in nefarious malevolence toward FOX's 'I Hate My Teenage Daughter', but there's nothing wrong with a little schadenfreude now and again.
