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?

With Lindsay Lohan FINALLY in a great rehab facility and completely clean, of COURSE Michael Lohan wants to put in his two cents.
According to Michael, he’s made it his mission to get his daughter out of Lindsay’s 90 day Betty Ford Clinic visit and into the Lukens Institute as soon as possible. Why, you might ask?
“I am going to go to California and I want to meet with Lindsay’s attorney Shawn and the City Attorney to talk about her transferring to the Lukens Institute. It is ridiculous for Lindsay to spend 90 days at Betty Ford. They are a 30-day program place. There is no reason for her to repeat the same program for three months. I know that Lukens is the best place for Lindsay in the whole country. She’s been to Betty Ford and it isn’t going to help her this time. She needs real help and the only place she can get this is at Lukens.”
The court has already said they will NEVER let Lindsay transfer, and we’re PRETTY SURE The Betty Ford Clinic can handle the likes of Lindsay. So stop meddling, Michael! Geez.

Lindsay Lohan has started her journey!
The troubled actress just completed the all-important 48-hour detox program at the Betty Ford Center and has since been placed into her dorms, where she’ll share stories, memories and perhaps screen a copy of Liz & Dick for her all-female dormmates. Radar reports that Lilo is doing fine, despite not having her drugs and her all-important cell phone! GASP!
“Lindsay was placed in detox for almost forty-eight hours,” a source told Radar. “She is adapting to being back at Betty Ford and is very receptive to the care plan that has been created for her. Her cell phone was confiscated upon admission, but Lindsay will have access to it at some point, because patients are given their electronic devices for a short period everyday, so they can call loved ones. It’s very tightly regulated.”
Oh no! Whatever will Lilo do? Don’t worry, all…she’s got like 40 people working day and night to ensure her rehabilitation. Leslie Place, a case manager at the Betty Ford center, says that “During the treatment stay each patient is assignment a treatment team, which includes a physician, nurse, psychologist, primary counselor, case manager, spiritual care counselor, family counselor, dietician, fitness trainer and chemical dependency technician.”.
If she messes this up…abandon all hope!

Amanda Bynes might be living the high life in NYC, mumbling to herself and posting on twitter, but that lifestyle can’t keep itself up. The star has access to all of her money, and with questionable mental health!
“While Amanda was growing up her parents and lawyers controlled all of her money, they put it away in investments so that she would be able to have it when she got older,” a source close to the troubled star told RadarOnline.com. “Amanda made a lot of money starting with Nickelodeon and then other TV shows and movies, but she lived like a regular girl when she was young. However, a few months ago she demanded that she have complete access to all of the money so she could spend it, not save it anymore.”
As previously reported, Amanda garbled about having “Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen money,” but in reality she’s only worth only about $5-6 million.
“Amanda knows she has a lot of money. Before she wasn’t restricted from getting to it, but a lot of it was tied up in investments and banked for her future, but she insisted that she be able to use all of it as she sees fit and there is nothing anyone can do to stop her from spending it all. Amanda can do whatever she wants for a while with all of her money but it isn¹t going to last forever if she spends the way she has been lately. She’s rich but she could find herself in financial trouble pretty soon.”
Can I get a guardianship over here? Anyone? Anyone? I think that seems appropriate. Thoughts?!

Kelly Osbourne has had a rough week!
First, her dad Ozzy going back to rehab and her parents splitting. That, and a beloved family pet died. Still, does that justify mistreating strangers? Hard to say.
According to The Daily Telegraph’s Joel Christie, he tried to interview Kelly about her new column in Cleo magazine, and followed her request about steering clear of family topics. Still, she started off defensive, calling Christie “presumptuous” when he mistakenly referred to her boyfriend as her fiancé. Then Christie says he simply asked:
“Your first column in the magazine is called ‘Life Is Just Shit Sometimes’. Have things gotten any better since you wrote it?”
According to Christie, that’s when Kelly went ballistic! She responded…
“You are trying to f–king turn this around and get shit on my family, aren’t you?”
Uh…yikes. Poor Kelly…maybe it’s better to say nothing at all to reporters during hard times like these?
