Last night, 24 million people tuned in to Fox to see who be crowned the next American Idol. While these are huge numbers, it is the lowest rated Idol finale since the Season 1 finale drew 22 million viewers in 2002. It is a far cry from the 37 million people that tuned in for the Season 5 finale when Taylor Hicks beat out Katherine McPhee. While American Idol is still, by far, the number 1 show on television, it saw a small ratings decline of 8% this season. The fact that, in Season 9, it is still drawing huge numbers, and is still the #1 show on television is a huge feat.
The Whore thinks it simply comes down to the
horrible boring contestants this year. They need to have MUCH better and MUCH more interesting contestants next year. Do YOU agree?
