American Idol Has Lowest Finale Ratings EVER

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 night’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 year’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.  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?

A good start would be to get rid of the skanky Minaj.

Minaj is still the only judge with a brain on the show – in any case she is obnoxious and hard to listen to – reality tv sucks, always.

I would’ve like to have seen Candace vs. Amber in the final. Minaj was the only judge I really cared to listen to, aside from Urban who was pretty cool too I thought.

Nicki Minaj completely turned me into a fan, love that woman. She could be coarse at times, but tough love is good love and she was funny as hell too 🙂

It’s a terrible show that is now tired and the contestants don’t know anything about music.. time for a change!

There was nothing shocking about the win the right person won as expected.

This show SUCKS! No one can save it.

The show is horrible, doubtful if they can save it. Maybe if they brought Simon and Paula back!

I, too, think the show has really deteriorated. The judges, for the most part, patronize the contestants. Comments are seldom constructive, merely predictable, throughout, each time I watched, this year. I finally ran out of patience and tuned out for good, as I felt so terribly bored with everyone. It’s as though the show was completely scripted.

P.S. The diva and the trollop actually made things even more boring and predictable. Shame on both of them for their atrocious manners!
