American Idol ratings hit an all time low
When American Idol producers added Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj to the judges panel they expected a jump in ratings. The complete opposite has happened...
Last Wednesday American Idol pulled in 13.1 million viewers, it's lowest Wednesday night rating since the singing competition show debuted back in 2002.
This marks the third week in a row that the ratings have gone down. American Idol season 12 premiered January 16, 2013 with 17.8 million viewers. Last year's season finale aired May 23, 2012 with 21.49 million viewers.
