"American Idol ratings for 2013 have been the worst since the show`s initial debut twelve seasons ago. The numbers improved by a miniscule amount last week with the performances of the Top 6 finalists, the elimination of Lazaro Arbos, and the announcement of the final Top 5 girls. However, previous to those small gains, the series had set repeated records for the lowest ratings ever on the show.
Nicki Minaj reportedly believes the blame for the low American Idol ratings should be placed firmly in the laps of fellow judges Keith Urban, Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey."
Certainly the inane utterings of diva Mariah Carey have driven away viewers with an above room temperature IQ.Even if Carey`s boobs pop out oft the tight dresses she has a penchant for wearing, that`s not enough of an enticement for male viewers, they will eventually turn to the Watching Grass Grow Network.
Keith Urban`s country gentleman persona grows grating after a while; I keep hoping that he will show up on the set drunk on moonshine, and tell the contestants what he really thinks about them.
Why on Earth is Randy Jackson still around? He should have been kicked to the curb a thousand "yo`s" ago.
But of course Nicki Minaj deserves most of the blame for Idol`s low ratings. Minaj`s street vibe, freakish wardrobe, Illuminati obsession, and Ebonics vocabulary are just too much for Middle America.
Where have you gone Simon Cowell, a desperate nation turns its eyes to you.
