This is not looking too good.

The numbers just continue to dwindle down for American Idol!

AI's 13th season was off to a rough start with an abysmal number of viewers tuning in for its season premiere, despite the fact that Jennifer Lopez returned and Harry Connick Jr. joined the panel alongside Keith Urban!

Now there's this!

Last night, the singing competition was competing against the Sochi Winter Olympics and they did not come out on top. In fact, AI scored its lowest ratings EVER.

So sad!

Sure, it probably had to with the fact that it's the last week of the Sochi games and everyone in the country was glued to their seats watching all the wintery competitions, but surely there's still a big AI fan base out there?!

Maybe it's time to hang up the music stands after 13 good seasons.

    The show is so much fun this year and the talent is awesome! It's hard to compete with such a high profile athletic event. I really think that positive word of mouth will turn things around! This year AI is a blast! It has nothing to do with last year's mess…

    why fox thought starting the show, that already struggles with ratings.. while the Olympics were on was a good idea is beyond me.

    Haven't watched Idol in years, ever since Simon and Paula left, they made the show funny.

    Pls don't blame this low rating on the Olympics…lol Harry Conick Jr. week on Amer Idol has ALWAYS BEEN the most boring week for that show..check the ratings…and now they have him as a judge? He is a boring and rude judge…sorry guys until you get a little more class like the VOICE has, your ratings will run low….

    OMG! You mean Your "jenny on tha block" who perez always praises and American idol thought would come in half season and save a show that suffered because of the mistake they made of hiring Nikki Minaj but tried to blame it on and get rid of the pop queen "Mariah Carey"!!! Ha Ha Ha lets see what Wendy, Perez and the media blame this on! Jenny was horrible on every season she was on and is less relevant in music than Mariah! American idol management is so stupid. I hope Mariah is laughing her ass off!!!
