nigel lythgoe feels good about american idol

American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe is looking on the bright side of things.

Despite the fact that ratings have dropped, Lythgoe has only positive things to say about the show's new season:

"I am thrilled and delighted at the reaction to the new panel."

In another act of optimism, Lythgoe pointed out that Idol's numbers were "45% higher than last year's finale performance night and 18% higher than the season 9 finale results show."

And in yet ANOTHER act optimism for his show, he had the following to say:

"Wait until the talent begins to surface. There will be more than one star this year."

We're liking this upbeat, positive attitude, Nigel! This is exactly the kind of thinking you'll need to maintain if you want to compete with X Factor when it hits the U.S.!

Do U think the Idol executive producer has reason to be happy? Or is he kidding himself?

Heidi And Spencer Most Likely Won't Return To The Hills For The Finale!

Spencer Twatt and the Real Heidi Doll - who are apparently shacked up in their disgusting Pacific Palisades home surrounded by crystals and painkillers, plotting their next publicity campaign - will most likely not appear in the series finale of the show that ruined them made them what they are today, The Hills!

According to a source, neither of the famewhores have taped for the show since April, and series creator, Adam DiVello - whom Heidi accused of sexual harrassment - "said he doesn't think Heidi and Spencer will come back for the series finale."

We're also hearing that when he and the castmembers sat down last week to discuss what to do for the last episode (because it's real life!) Heidi was not present.

The source claims:

"All the girls were asked to come up with ideas of how the show can end. He wants The Hills to end on an upbeat tone. He wants to show the audience that the girls are going on to bigger and better things and that the show was good for them."

No better way to prove the show was a positive experience for its cast than by ignoring the Frankentittays monstrosity that you're responsible for creating, right?
