American Idol…not the juggernaut it used to be.

This bit of news actually made me happy.

For years I’ve been wondering how American Idol gets the huge audiences it does, when it’s not that good anyway….and moreover, I’ve been waiting for it to dip in the ratings and/or be beaten by another show in the same time slot.

According to an entry at TV Squad, viewership is down nearly 10 percent.  Now, it’s still killing everything in it’s time period….but I think the cracks are finally starting to show.

Maybe they’ll consider taking a year or two off in between seasons, or better yet, they’ll stop making it!  I still have yet to understand the appeal of watching a bunch of nobodies compete for a contract, who then go off thinking they have a guaranteed career, only to go nowhere.

We’ll see if this is just the beginning of the end, or a fluke of this season…
