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.
Notorious for being #1 in the Nielsen ratings for five consecutive seasons and even ranking in 38 million viewers at one point, the show last Tuesday night only pulled in 17.1 million viewers, the lowest figure since August 27th, 2002.
Can we really blame Simon for leaving after this season? Why do you think Idol is starting to flop? Bad contestants? Paula’s absence? Bad host?? Let your opinions be known in the comments below!!!
