Why does "Amazing Race" keep winning the Emmy race for best reality/competition show every year? Can "American Idol" ever win? And can Ryan Seacrest finally claim the Emmy contest for best reality TV host? Answers: Yes. For two reasons:
1.) "Idol" producers submitted the finale to Emmy judges, which is exciting, heart-felt and twice as long as rival episode entries.
2.) Simon Cowell. Yes, "American Idol's" resident rascal may finally do something good for the show. Whether he means to or not.
