America was tuned in to Tuesday night's premiere of American Idol!

The ninth season of AI kicked off with a bang - last night's episode drew almost 30 million viewers to the network!!

Although the numbers have yet to reach such great heights as Idol's fifth season, Fox was prepared for the worst.

Considering the exit of loved judge, Paula Abdul, the network assumed Idol ratings share would be waaaaay down compared to last year's #'s.

But they weren't!

    Yeah i watched, it was pretty boring and those damn commercials but it was kinda worth it .. a little…maybe tonights episode will be better?..i actually like when they start doing the live shows better. wow long way to go untill then :(



  2. 2

    Absolutely I did!!! Can't wait for Ellen to join!! Victoria Beckham scared me a lil…

    This year only. when Simon leaves next year, I have a feeling Idol will follow shortly. And don't speak for all of us about the supposed beloved hag Paula. I hated that bitch from the first day and felt that she dragged the show down every year with her nonsense and stupidity. The worst was the awful interaction between her and Simon…so childish, immature and unbecoming of a woman of her age. It totally distracted from the actual point of the show…the contestants. When you focus more on stupidity than the contestants.,….your in trouble. This will be my last AI season so I will enjoy it.

    ppl only watched bcuz it was the auditions episode everybody likes to watch the auditions. after that ppl will stop watching



  5. 5

    no, I didn't watch. I won't watch at all this season without Paula. and you can almost bet that this seaon will be the last if simon is leaving too



  6. 6

    where was ellen



  7. 7

    It was such as shame of all the people we saw admitted to Hollywood, only two could really sing.



  8. 8

    Its because of ELLEN!!! Everyone thought Ellen would be on last night….unfortunately Mrs.Beckham who could care less how they sang and more about what they were wearing was on!! And Mary J Blidge is supposed to be on tonights show……watch the ratings soar when Ellens judging!!!!

    dude, Paula was so insignificant… She was effed up half the time and couldn't put together a correct sentence to save her life. Elen will end up dominating that show. She's witty, smart, funny, etc… baiscally everything Paula isn't.



  10. 10

    no, this part, 'cept for the occasionally moron, is an hour or two of snoozefest.



  11. 11

    who won 5th season idol??



  12. 12


  13. 13

    Victoria Bekham lookes awesome



  14. 14

    NO, never again……..



  15. 15

    "Considering the exit of loved judge, Paula Abdul" Speak for yourself! I changed the channel every time that dimwit spoke. It was always laughable everytime she critiqued someone's singing … lol! The woman sang like she inhaled an entire cannister of helium. Come to think of it, that kind of explains all the strange ramblings she's prone to.



  16. 16

    fuck no… that show is so god damn retarded…..



  17. 17

    yupers i was watching! haha i like the guy tht looked like he came from the 70's



  18. 18

    yep im a big fan though last yr im watching

    no simon =EPIC PHAIL that kills the show for good



  19. 19

    BOSTON RULES!!! That Justin guy at the end was sooo HOT!! He is gonna be the next America Idol!! I predict it!!



  20. 20

    Wasn't the guy who got in a "fight" with Kara, Michael Ian Black from "I love the 80's" on VH1 and "The State"?



  21. 21

    Of course the ratings were high - people can't get enough of TV shows that tell them what kind of lame music to listen to.



  22. 22

    Me and the hubby watched, it was uber boring. Hopefully, tonight's episode will bring some laughs…. or not, maybe that's why Simon is quitting



  23. 23

    Psh. I hated Paula. Good riddance. I watched on DVR so I could fast forward through all the crazy people.



  24. 24

    Well, that's kind of a slap in the face to Paula that 'Idol' was slightly more successful in ratings AFTER she left.



  25. 25

    Fuck that noise, NCIS all the way!



  26. 26

    Paula Who …. ? Regardless, this ship has sailed - why do you think Simon is jumpring from it ? Shelf life has expired, and it is time to move on. The 'X' factor will be the next big new hit. Just say'n … ! And, it was a bit boring.



  27. 27

    And, Victoria was a bit of a Freak Show, She is the scary one, if you ask me !



  28. 28

    SIMON is American Idol,
    without Simon, the show will die .
    adios .



  29. 29
