Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey
fighting judging America's undiscovered talent can't garner more viewers than a grey-haired dude who solves crimes?!
Last night's American Idol is apparently the lowest rated AI premiere EVER, with only 17.9 million 18-49 year-old viewers tuning in!
It seems that rather than watching Nicariah's tense back and forth and having one's ears violated by terrible singers, Tuesday's TV night viewers tuned into NCIS instead.
Boo! You guys are missing out! This panel has the chance to be the strongest its been since the original trio. You've got really knowledge, eloquent, fierce people keeping it real with these young people. There's some real promise here!
So please, maybe tune in tonight, help boost the readership… save the show from being cancelled!
What do U think of the season premiere, lovely readers?!

Oprah has had some ratings difficulties since ending her daily show and starting her OWN Network, and that has extended into her O Magazine.
Luckily though, the decline hasn’t been as bad as it could have been. They prepared for a 25% decline, and so far it’s only been 22%, which is still a lot but not horrible.
Oprah’s been vocal about how much she likes holding the magazine in her hand, but she's also a realist.
O says she's prepared to halt publication

All right, Upper East Siders!
We've got some good news and bad news!
While many of you may be worried that Gossip Girl's low ratings this year could lead to its cancellation, sources close to the CW drama have revealed that it will mostly likely be renewed for a sixth season!
The bad news?
It will be

The first of MTV's original, scripted series - The Hard Times of RJ Berger - has been canceled after two seasons!
Although debuting in seasons one and two to high numbers, the series, which focused on a well-endowed high school student, lost a huge amount of viewership steadily until dropping below one million by its season finale in May.
But hey! At least you got the network to stop airing so much crap reality!
And you also lasted longer than the abysmal Skins!
That's something! Ha!

Can't say we didn't see this coming, but we know there are more than a few of you out there who will be somewhat disappointed.
MTV just announced that they are canceling their adaptation of the British show Skins after only one season. The show had a rocky start, plagued by low ratings, bashings from parental groups and advertisers quickly pulling their ads because of its racy content. Still, MTV stands by their decision to air the show and released this statement on its cancellation:
"Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn’t connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped. We admire the work that the series’ creator Bryan Elsley did in adapting the show for MTV, and appreciate the core audience that embraced it."
If you are one of those kids in the show's "core audience" and you haven't already, fill the void by watching the U.K. series. It is masterfully written and we think by watching it you'll have a better appreciation for what the U.S. show had to live up to!

Too bad! This show was so fascinating!
We're bummed to report that the HBO series In Treatment, which followed Gabriel Byrne as a psychotherapist as he treated a variety of patients with a plethora of different problems, has not been picked up for a fourth season, due to low ratings!
A spokesperson for HBO explains:
"It's true that we have no plans to continue with In Treatment as previously formatted. However, we are in continued conversations with the executive producers to find another way to continue telling these rich stories."
We certainly hope so!
Maybe it would work better without a specific week day correlating to one patient? It was a lot to have it airing so many nights a week!
Keeping our fingers crossed!

Uh-oh! We guess people are getting tired of her!
Katie Price debuted her latest reality series last night on Sky Living, simply called Katie, and reportedly garnered a disappointing 470,000 views!
Wow! That's a pretty far cry from the 1.4 million her last show, What Katie Did Next, pulled in on its premiere!
Granted, network execs claim that they're happy with the numbers, and maintain that ITV2, which hosted her last series, managed to get better numbers only because it was also available on Freeview!
What do U guys think in the UK?? Are U over Jordan or will U watch her new show?
