First the chatter came about American Idol having its lowest ratings ever this season, then TheWrap blogged a story about the show doing a total revamp, and finally Randy Jackson kind of cemented this rumor by saying he is indeed leaving after 12 years judging on the show. TheWrap says all four judges were gonna get shitcanned anyway, so I see why Randy announced it last night, to save face. Apparently it’s “no more big paychecks for divas.” They’ve been getting their asses handed to them by NBC’s The Voice so they have some work to do. Honestly, they should just let it die, but it is still a cash cow for FOX so that ain’t gonna happen. They are gonna milk this bitch till its teats are crusty and shriveled. Kinda like mine.

Can they do it? Do you care enough to watch? Those are the questions people are asking. The word is that American Idol knows the time has come. The ratings haven’t been this low since the show debuted in 2002 and took over the globe. Even a staged catfight between Nicki Minaj and Mariah can’t get people to watch anymore. So what’s a once unstoppable TV juggernaut to do? Go back to their roots to say farewell. They are allegedly trying to get the original judges, Simon, Randy, and Paula for the last season, next year. So far they have Paula and Randy, but Simon is of course being difficult. I shall keep you all updated since I know you won’t sleep until I do. (via Janet Charlton; photo: People)
