Not even a performance by diva Jennifer Lopez and a shocking finale win can bring back viewership for the ‘ol American Idol, it seems!
Last nightÃ¢â¬â¢s show had the lowest ratings the program has seen in the history of its finales (and yes, they’ve had 12 of them). In fact, it was down a whopping 47% in preliminary ratings from last yearÃ¢â¬â¢s finale.
So, half the people decided they had better things to watch. And not overall, JUST from last season’s finale! Yikes.
This is not a good sign for the benchmark reality show, and it kinda goes to show that these programs really do have a shelf life, despite being at one time SUPER popular.ÃÂ The producers will have to do something really awe-inspiring for next season if they want the show to last!
What do you think American Idol will do to keep their precious viewership?
