... No, I don't think programs should include more meta references to appease the fans and I am sure that the posters at television without pity would agree with me
This was a huge exposure for the site, I would think -- moreso than from print or internet media. Have you seen any increase in site traffic since the show aired?

If my faulty long-term memory serves me right, I think Momma Rajskub pointed to the shirt when she stood up.

Thank you for responding to my recap, and for all of the compliments. Of course, I know you from your defense of and about me, on TWoP.
By mid-season on TA:MS, your commentary on 'the boards' really helped keep me out of the doldrums. And yes, as you know might have guessed... I enjoyed reading every little thing that I could dig up as far commentary on that show was concerned, so of course I know you all! (Even keckler... my greatest detractor, which I loved!!)
What do you think--does it count as a shout-out?

But it's awesome anyway! I wonder if he knows how much Jacob loved him!
Not really! :)

This is from Joe R's recap of the Top 16: The Girls:
And what do I see last night during House? A 30 second advertisement for American Idol telling me that from now on, the show is all about the "yo", and it was accompanied with Randy saying "yo" forty-five times.
Ryan asks Randy what of the "yo" factor. Man, I hope that sticks around. Ryan Seacrest in dogged pursuit on the status of the "yo" factor would enhance my viewing experience this year, I think.
I have support for my thought that this is more than a coincidence, and more than a shout out. Earlier this season, the first episode in fact, Joe R thanked several higher powers for the "other door". By episode seven, it got its own segment.
It all adds up in my mind.
