American Idol Ratings Hit An All Time Low


When American Idol producers added Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj to the judges panel they expected a jump in ratings.

The complete opposite has happened...

Last Wednesday American Idol pulled in 13.1 million viewers, it's lowest Wednesday night rating since the singing competition show debuted back in 2002.

This marks the third week in a row that the ratings have gone down.

American Idol season 12 premiered January 16, 2013 with 17.8 million viewers.

The fucking show sucks. It's not even about talent anymore. They are throwing good money after bad Garbage. That bish sucks.

what the fuck do u expect?? why watch a bunch of average wedding singers get their hopes up for superstardom when chances are they are just gonna wind up back at the ihop late shift anyway.

Nicki isn't as bad as I thought she'd be. She's actually pretty good. Mariah bores the hell outta me. Like girl where is your personality? And I grew up as a Mariah fan.

@11:29AM Ay MEN. That's the reason I don't like these singing competition shows. No one becomes a REAL star. Besides, the market is already saturated with below average "talent".

Amen to both 11:29's and LOL @ the second one. The show sucks. It doesn't matter who you put on it. People aren't checking for it as much anymore.

I don't watch the show because of Icki Garbaj. I was so happy and ready to tune-in when it was announced Mariah was going to be on the show. But as much as i loves Mimi, i can't stand Gabarj, that bitch literally turns my fucking stomach. I wish she'd go far, far away. I miss the way the industry was before people like her non talented ass came in and sucked the talent out of it, and turned it into a freak/clown show.

Icki's killing the ratings. They made a huge mistake hiring her. They messed up by having a non talented hoe critique people on a talent show. Sack that bitch and watch the ratings rise!

The show suck cuz the contestants suck. The talent pool sucks. I can't blame the judges on this one. Theses 90s babies can't sing for shit. Idol was at it's best when contestants were born in the 70s and 80s. Rage the minimum age to 25 and max age to 35. Then I'll watch. I can't stand to see these kids sing Taylor swift and Demi Lavato songs

Nicki Minaj is showing just how little she knows about musicianship with every comment she makes. Everything she has to say about someone musically is piggybacked from Keith Urban and everything else is just ridiculousness. When she says crazy stuff, I love the way Mariah looks away like Nicki isn't even talking. Weeks ago in an interview Mariah hinted that she will just treat Nicki like she doesn't exist and that is how she will keep her cool and I can see that she is doing just that. I think Randy is a jerk sometimes but overall, the other three judges are solid. Get rid of Nicki and I think the viewers will come back. When the show is on, twitterverse goes in on how terrible Nicki is and even the shows Fb page is the same. At some point, the producers have to listen!

What a fuckking CIRCUS that shit has turned into!! The Idol Producers & Nikki seems to forget that it's on a NATIONAL platform and that Ghetto shit is not what's gonna attract middle America or ratings!! I can't even for more than ten minutes without wanting to throw up!! She's the Fuckking WORST!! I hope the ratings keep dropping until they realize that they've picked up Garbage and throw her No talent having ass to the CRUB!! It doesn't even matter if the contestants are good anymore, it seems to be all about the Judges and the bickering and the crazy antics...I Can't!!

She gonna run that show right into the ground!!

...I am so obsessed with you! (In my Nikki voice!)

You guys know the real reason why American Idol has low ratings. It's because there are three black people starring as judges!

Nikki is a weirdo whose letting nothing but weirdos with no talent thru! She is acting a complete fool and using accents! It's a mess! and @3:22 You're a Racist Asshole for that comment! Please join us in the 21st Century PRICK!!!!!

I'll never watch this show regardless of what talent-less buffoons or has-beens they put on the panel.

I like this season, Last night was good. I never watched all the other seasons past the auditions. This is the FIRST season ive ever watched all the way through. I like all the judges & about 5 of the the contestants are good.

My fav contestant so far is Cortez Shaw. He has the best voice I seen on AI in a while...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBiKRDKiWHQ

Hope he wins... or Burnell Taylor

CLIT FLEA'S BEY-TRAYAL said...

The only thing that annoys me is Nikki & Mariah for opposite reasons. Nikki over does it with her remarks & flirting & shit & Mariah DOES NOT fit in with the other 3 judges at at all. Its like they do Keith Nikki 7 randy & then we get to mariah whom never gives direct critiques she brown noses every contestant & narcissisticlly talks about the music biz as if shes trying to remind eveyone that she can sing to. i bet shes dying to sing at the finals.

I agree let me add....Ruben Studdard has a powerful voice, with great range.

I think Nick is too much, i watched once when the girl with her daughter was audition that part made me cry, i have seen previews where Nick thinks she knows it all. And keeps interrupting Mariahhh . Idol is done. They should just close the chapter.

Anonymous said...

I stopped watching around the time Ruben studdard and fanny won. I sat and watched a few minutes of the new season but Nicki minak was so annoying and immature not to mention they kept letting non singers thru to the next round, i guess the show is more about clowns now more then anything else.

Anonymous said...

Good! Get that garbage off air and take Nicki with them! She is toast, ain't nobody checking for that clown anymore! People are over her, no matter how much she is trying to change up her wardrobe, which is just another marketing scam! The bitch still ratchet and evil!

Micky ficky minaj sure as hell aint suited to judge a singin competiton and we all know why nuff said...mariah is straight up and down BORING! sell out pop piece too sorry yall her shit aint been good since she had a vision of love. Keith and randy=background...Simon holla at these niccas damm

Anonymous said...

This show has run it's course and it's time to cancel it for good. No judges could ever match the wit, charisma, humor and sarcasm like Randy, Paula and Simon. They were classic.

Anonymous said...

Nicki added the COON clown effect to the show.

Anonymous said...

they dont want real singers anyway. Folks are tired of these shows where the "star" gets into a bad deal, makes no money, while the producers and record execs get richer. I wouldn't do this show. The bottom line is money. Sure, you make me super famous but the contract is not written in the artists favor on any level.

stick to posting videos on youtube. And like most have said, the talent is talent show quality, not showcase or national stage talent.

@11:10 You is really mad to be hating on Mariah ain't you? My Bitch has gotten better with time. Her last album was spectacular musically. Keep killing em MC.
Stay Triumphant!!!!!!

Idol USED to be good when they didnt give a sob story for everyone.. they had REAL people on their and Simon was verbally abusing them. Simon is what made the show because he told people what they needed to hear. It was cruel and unusual entertainment.. Now, they make the show about the wack ass judges. And Nicki Minaj is so thru it doesn't even make sense. As soon as she became a judge a put the nail in the coffin for this show. GTFOH.. they need to bring back Star Search. 4 and a quarter stars!!

I have had a hard time watching so I record and speed through it. It bothers me some of the judges comments..calm the hell down this is not a pick bar and just give those kids a honest constructive answers. Why can't people just seem polished and step to the mic and sing the song, get your kudos or criticism and move on? I like the playfulness of The Voice and how the judges interact, it's more about the contestants and helping them achieve than who is the baddest judge. I love me some Mimi though.

Anonymous said...

I stopped watching after they picked the top 10 after they added the 4th judge. I stopped watching all together when they hired Ellen. I watched 2 eps this season because I was over other peoples homes who had it on and I was reminded of why I stopped watching and also shown how bad the show has gotten since Simon.

@2:21

You know what's good about the voice is even though they have tension you know their tension is because they want whats best for that performer. On AI now it's about who can sound the best would giving a critique. The only person I can stand now is the Australian country singer guy.

its nicki minaj's fault. she lets every through, even though they suck like her.

zeeedeee said...

@10:47 baby the only reason im so mad at mariah is because i was really feeling the talent she started out with i was waitin for her to BRING IT but she switched up so damm fast that i felt duped...didnt appreciate that...was REALLY lookin forward to sum classic stuff u know the kind u dont mind payin for...then she got on bet and issued the negro disclaimer i knew then soul music and mariah were NOT to be used in the same sentence....she used vision of love to get on then she threw us the deuces TRUTH

Of course nobody's gonna watch it. IT"S RIGGED!!!!!!!
People can smell bullshit a mile away. The people with the best singing voice NEVER win. They "let" the one win whom thye THINK will sell the most records and who will appeal to the most white teenagers

Nikki doesn't bother me. Mariah really does. She can say the exact same thing as Nikki and has even begun to use Nikki's voices and phrases periodically but she's such a friggin beeyotch. Quit agreeing with everything Randy says and just admit you agree with Nikki for crying out loud. I wish everyone would stop swinging from Mariah's sack. At least Nikki keeps her boobs in her shirt for the dang show!
