The new season of American Idol aired last week and the ratings were down. Both the season premiere and the second night of auditions had ratings that were lower when you compare them to last year’s ratings for the show.
Sounds ominous. Is it the new judges? Do people miss Simon that much?
Well, actually, it’s not as bad as it sounds. Even though the ratings for Thursday night’s show were down, they were still the highest ratings for a Thursday night that Fox has had in 15 years! So, people are definitely tuning in and taking notice.
Are you watching the new season of American Idol? What do you think of this season so far?
