If I haven’t been telling you enough myself, then lemme pull the ratings out to show you that American Idol is flopping this season. Wanna know how bad? I got the dish of the disappointment for you inside.

TheWrap.com reports that Idol recently pulled in one of its lowest viewership numbers since 2002, the year the show debuted on FOX.

    Paula’s gone, Simon’s bailing out, most of the judges lie through their teeth or don’t know what they’re talking about, and they picked what had to be the WORST Top 24 in the history of this show. We ended up with the DULLEST top 12 Idol contenders, and none of them stepped up their game enough for me to care. They should’ve just replayed Season 8 and called it a day. At least THEN they’d get better ratings!

    Jennifer Hudson proved a long time ago how much of a joke American Idol was. Same with Adam Lambert just recently. When Simon leaves the show, the ratings will plummet below 1.0. It’s just a matter of time.
