'American Idol' Ratings Down
What can they do to fix it?
I like the new line up of judges. And while the numbers for the opening show may be down a little from last year, it still kicks butt as far as any other shows ratings go, with the possible exception of Dancing with the "stars"....
Other shows are glad to have 8-10 million viewers and yet Idol is being blasted for "only" 26 million!
The new line up of judges is perfect- it makes you wonder why we had Simon in the first place. His often vitriolic comments made good viewing, but they also were extremely destructive for those on the end of them- he was a bully. You don't have to be mean to be critical and that's been proved by Steve and Jennifer. I've watched every 'Idol' since the beginning, and for me these are by far the best judges- really enjoyable viewing.
Total disappointment this year AI, cannot get over last year's elimination of Siobhan Magnus, and 100% agree with dressage queen
"Get rid of JLo! She brings nothing to the table! Never liked her, never will. No talent. One of those you wonder how she even got where she is. Won't watch it with her!"
AI is over for me....
I think it will be fun once they get to Hollywood. If they didn't expect sex and profanity, why did they hire Steven Tyler. I think he's hilarious. Altho he and JLo BOTH need to toughen up.
the best season yet. judges don't have to be mean s.o.b.'s
i will be back to watch regularly, as will my wife.
we loved it all.
