“American Idol” in Steep Ratings Decline Hits Season Low, Loses 15.6% from Last Week, Beaten by Academy of Country Music Awards, Which Hit Their Own All Time Low


The new “American Idol” is having big ratings problems in its second season on ABC.

Last night, Idol had its low for the season in its sixth episode. They dropped from 7.2 million viewers to just 6 million– an incredible decline of 15.60%.

“Idol” also lost to CBS’s “Academy of Country Music Awards”– which itself had its lowest ratings ever. But they still beat “Idol” handily.

I don’t know what’s going on with “Idol,” but I do know Katy Perry should be making records and touring, and getting herself out of there. She’s wasting her own music career.
