This Wednesday, American Idol had some BAD news!
Some shows have a successful run, and then need to think about calling it quits, American Idol, which has been one of the most successful reality shows in history, may have to think about its future.
On Fox’s American Idol (3.0/9), it was Rock Night with the remaining finalists belting out Rolling Stones, Queen and Bon Jovi songs among others. Coming off last week’s all-time Wednesday low, the live two-hour show again hit a new Wednesday low in the adults 18-49 demographic. However, as Idol tends to see upward movement in its final numbers, the low might not hold. Last night’s Idol dipped 3% from last week’s fast nationals result and 6% from the final numbers. With 11.48 million watching, Idol also dipped to its smallest Wednesday audience since August 7, 2002, during its first season.
Uh oh, Idol.
With new shows like How To Live With Your Parents For The Rest of Your Life and old hits like Modern Family, how will this reality staple fare? Hard to say, but keep watching (or not, just read about it, because the rest of America doesn’t seem to be watching Idol these days!).
