American Idol: Good Chemistry but Bad Ratings


American Idol is back! Tonight was part two of the two night season premiere and I have to say, I missed the show. I'm glad that it's back. There is always something about American Idol that is just a little more special than shows like The Voice or X Factor. I was, however, a little worried about the chemistry between the judges. Now that Randy is gone, all of the original judges have left the show. This season's talent will be judged by Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr. After watching two nights, I love the chemistry, and am definitely looking forward to this season.

Now, that's all my opinion. The ratings are saying otherwise. This season of American Idol premiered to the lowest ratings in Idol history!  While the show delivered a massive 15 million viewers, which was the most on Wednesday night, and more than The Voice, in comparison to the other seasons it dropped 23%. The ratings have dropped steadily for the past few years, and if the show does not pick up this season it will be interesting to see just how much longer American Idol will be on the air.

Have you been watching Idol this season? If so, what do you think of the chemistry between the judges? Will you be watching for the rest of the season? Leave your comments below!
