"IDOL" FINALE RATINGS WAY DOWN
Thursday, May 27, 2010
A so-so season of American Idol ends on the decline. Last night, 24.2 million people tuned in for the finale, down 18% percent from last year. The finale numbers haven't seen so low since the show debuted in 2002.
The finale had it's highs and its lows. Just about all of the past Idol winners took to the stage to say goodbye to Simon Cowell. Paula Abdul was also back to say bye to her friend. The tribute was good, but it seems Simon is just fine with his departure. He didn't show much emotion for his final bow. Also, where were the parting words from his fellow judges?
Christina Aguilera, Alanis Morissette, Janet Jackson were among the many current acts that performed. Older acts like Chicago, Hall & Oates, Joe Cocker and Alice Cooper also performed, but came off looking tired. Also, why would producers have these oldtimers perform if they are trying to attract a young audience? It seems the talent could have been a lot hipper.
