The winner of last season's "American Inventor" isn't exactly rocking the very foundation of American living, (for the record, the winning invention was some kind of child's car seat), but perhaps this season will yield something a tad more exciting. Like an elevator to the moon! Tonight's premiere will most likely include the San Francisco auditions. Watch the ridiculousness at 9 p.m. on ABC.

And let us add that the number of reality competition shows that include a mean British judge has reached absurd levels. Can we initiate some kind of cantankerous Englishman embargo?
