Since networks will not stop until every person on Earth auditions to win a glorified karaoke contest, we now have Americal Idol, The Voice, and The X-Factor. Even though American Idol was the original, its ratimgs are horrible because instead of focusing on the contestants, its all about the judges and all their scripted drama. Also, it's been on for 12 damn years. Usually, you'd take it out back and shoot it in the head, but FOX wants to squueze every dime they can from you, so they are firing everybody and retooling the entire show. Daily Beast reports:
After a series of ratings bum notes, Fox is planning to fire all four American Idol judges after this season, according to a report by The Wrap. Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, and Randy Jackson, who so far has survived every round of Idol judges' musical chairs, are expected to get the boot along with longtime producer Nigel Lythgoe as the network hopes to retool the series to compete in the ratings with NBC’s The Voice. In addition to the judges shake-up, Fox is reportedly planning to redesign the show and nix dated tribute theme nights.
FOX, trust me, if you cancel this abomination, nobody will care. Seriosuly. Trust me on this. If you want the show to work, don't hire judges, and give people who want to form their own bands some shitty intstruments and let them practice in a warehouse for three months. Then they perform all original songs. Then let people vote. And if they win, the get a record contract. Or not. I'm afraid I come across like I care about all this.
