American Idol Ends With Its Lowest Finale Ratings EVER!

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican Idol

american idol finale ratings low

We’d have thought that American Idol’s season finale win and Jennifer Lopez's performance would have aided in its ratings woes.

Clearly, we thought wrong. Last night’s results garnered the lowest ratings the show has seen in the history of its finales. In fact, it was down a whopping 47% in preliminary ratings from last year’s finale.

YIKES! Almost half!!

This is definitely not a good sign from Idol, only highlighting its dire need for change. With all of its judges' problems and rumors of the show’s format being revamped, it seems anything will do to bring in the numbers!

Idol must be saved!

    It's obvious why ratings are low. IT'S MINAJ. No one I know can stand her and all quit watching.

    They need to get people talking about Idol like before. Remember the days when people would not only be amazed by the talent but also had a few good laughs while watching the show? There wasn't any of that this season. ALL drama, no genuine fun, and talent was overshadowed for drama until the end when no one gives a sh|t.

    I probably won't watch the show after this season even if Mariah is back - them producers are as backwards as the middle ages.

    I'm totally not surprised. I love Idol very much, but they've made so many disgusting changes to it, what with the faulty judges, the format, etc… Idol has gone downhill, fast. They need to make sure they have judges who can actually judge (Nobody like Nicki. Love her, but she doesn't have the qualifications for a judge), Keith I never understood a word that came out of his mouth, Mariah was too damn soft and kind, and Randy…. so glad that he is leaving Idol. All I can remember from him is "yo dawg" or "she's in it to win it!"… The girl who won was right, saying that he said it to everybody and made the contestants feel stupid.

    Should have ended it a long time ago. There's no need for it to keep going anymore. Who even ends up remembering any of the winners or other contestants? Aside from Kelly and Carrie.

    Very poor selection for Idol winners; made by third rate judges. Neither of these women have star power. Minaj single-handley destroyed Idol.

    Ok this is just My thoughts in the downfall of Idol. When it was proven that the voting was manipulated in season 8. And nothing was done about it. The show lost creadability. The show then started going down hil. They then bring in Nickie. Alow her to show after show. Make sexual remarks in a family show. Of corse people with kids are going to stop watching. I. Loves Keith U. Keep him Yo Dawg. I say good riddence. Nickie and Marya. Gone. Add Adam Lambert bring back Simon And Paula. And you have a credible judging staff. They need to be more selective on their. Contestants. AND CHANGE THEIR VOTEING POLICIES. let the judges have more power on the results. Just my opinion

    Honestly I read that anybody who wanted Angie to win did not watch the show after she got voted off. It was posted everywhere online.
