It appears I'm not the only viewer who is dissatisfied with Idol this season but I may be one of the few who is still watching! Following is a link to an article in which Nigel Lythgoe, Idol super producer, blames the much lower ratings this season on the lack of chemistry among the judges. Then goes on to disavow all responsibility for choosing the judges...blaming it on *Fox*. Yeah, right.
The article further states that The Voice is now beating Idol in the ratings and after watching The Voice for the past few weeks, I see why. And, while Nigel is careful not to blame any one judge for the lack of *chemistry*, the viewers who have commented on the article are not so cautious...Nicki Menaj is the Lazaro of the judges...without the sympathy vote. The viewers want her gone gone gone.
