American Idol is on a steady path to losing money this year, as ratings are down 26% from last season!

Even with all the show's changes in 2014, including the additions of Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez to the judge's panel, negative financials are unfortunately on the horizon for the first time since the premiere in 2002!

But what are some of the rumored reasons behind the money slump?!

The FOX series pays a ton for Ryan Seacrest and Jen, as they allegedly get $15 million each - as well as spending between $5-$7 million on a new set this year!

Did we mention it's rumored to cost them $5 million for viewer phone calls alone?!

That said, the insiders are saying AI is probably not getting cancelled after this season, but hopefully they'll be able to make up for their losses!

And if that doesn't happens, it looks like they will have to snip their budget significantly!

    Haven't watched the show in years, but curious why they have to call viewers - I mean that is a lot of money there.

    Re: teeter totter – I think that is referring to the fact that they cover the costs of the calls that the viewers make to vote for contestants. Although I stupidly didn't think about it still costing me cell phone minutes the one time I called. =]

    Olympics had to have something to do with it. Show you what I know I thought it was the best season yet…. prefer the stars and the process for the contestants. It was too drawn out in the past I never watched a full season would jump to the last two shows for the last 5 years !
