Who else out there wants to break up with Ryan Seacrest??
Someone buy the man some Ben & Jerry's!
“Producers and TV executives are very concerned about how much lower the show can actually fall. This is bad news. Very bad news … When you are getting beat by Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal in the demo, changes have to be made … One suggestion is going back to square one and finding two industry insider judges, like Simon [Cowell] and Randy [Jackson] were during season one, plus, a Paula Abdul type – someone in the industry past his or her prime. This way they can turn the judges into stars rather than the other way around. Another radical idea is going back to how the show began and finding a young host that isn’t yet a household name. It would save the show a lot of money.”
Holy shake up!!
Considering the high-paid judges haven’t boosted ratings, we’re not surprised to hear they might dump them, but Ryan?!
What would he do without Idol??
Oh wait…we’re sure he’ll be fine!
