The Hollywood Reporter says Burnham is urging broadcasters to consider their "duty of care" to reality-TV contestants suddenly swallowed up whole by a media feeding frenzy. Boyle was taken by ambulance to a private clinic over the weekend, after being assessed under Britain's Mental Health Act because of erratic behavior.

DURING SATURDAY'S finale of "Britain's Got Talent," the galaxy's favorite singer, Susan Boyle, appeared so tense, it was as if rigor had sent in. It was painful to watch her try to control her nerves. So it wasn't really surprising yesterday when word came from across the pond that Boyle was being treated for exhaustion at London's Priory Clinic, checking in a day after she finished second to the dance troupe Diversity, the London Sun reported. "Nobody has had to put up with the kind of attention Susan has had. Nobody could have predicted it," show judge Piers Morgan told a British breakfast show.

IT LOOKS LIKE the dream that Susan Boyle dreamed on "Britain's Got Talent" is coming true. According to London's News of the World, Boyle's moonlighting while performing on the "Britain's Got Talent" concert tour. But she's not doing weddings, Bar Mitzvahs or karaoke nights. Boyle is performing for corporate clients and charging in the tony neighborhood of $165,000 for a set. A 12-minute set. That's about $13,750 per minute or $229 a second. And Boyle hasn't even signed her record deal yet. Ironically, at a BGT concert in Sheffield this weekend, Boyle was singing "Memory" and forgot the words.

Does Simon even love us anymore? Look at his face as he watches Susan Boyle, the dowdy never-been-kissed global singing sensation, on stage in Britain's Got Talent (about 70 million have already). No smirk. No sneer. No boredom. He believes. He is nearly transcendent. He is not wondering why he is sitting there. He is not doing anyone a favor. He likes Les Miz. Whereas we, American Idol nation, are like cynics in the headlights, caught mid-snark, yukking it up over the blind guy, voting for the worst, clucking over our tattoo Barbie Megan Joy, choosing from a pool of people who seemed to have already formed their backstory on YouTube.

Two federal lawsuits filed this week in Trenton accuse Burlington County officials and the warden of the county jail of causing the deaths of two inmates through negligence and cost-cutting. County officials declined yesterday to discuss the allegations in either lawsuit, but last week they suspended a nurse who was on duty the night inmate Gilda Mazyck died at the jail. Mazyck, 39, died March 26 of heart disease after jail officials postponed her appointment to see a cardiologist.

Using the human voice as a competitive sports device has reached dangerous levels of overexposure. Sure, magnificent vocalists have come from television's retinue of singing battle shows: Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, Susan Boyle, Fantasia Barrino. Philadelphia's Ali Wadsworth, a current competitor on The Voice , is another. But there are too many televised bouts of vocal brio to contend with, too many losing singers to balm or ignore after defeat. No show is more bloodthirsty than the Gladiator -like bombast of The Sing-Off . Singing a cappella is like boxing without gloves.

Erin Andrews: 'I have fears' Erin Andrews, sideline reporter for ESPN, got her day in court, and so did the man accused of stalking her, Illinois insurance broker Michael David Barrett. He pleaded guilty in an L.A. court Tuesday to one count of interstate stalking and admitted that he followed Andrews to three cities in 2008, drilled peepholes, installed tiny cameras, got vids of her undressed, and posted them on the Web. Sentencing is Feb. 22. He could get as much as five years in prison, but a reported plea deal may pare it down closer to two. Andrews isn't having any of that.
