American Idol 2014 Spoilers: Ratings Down – Why Is No One Watching?
With the new American Idol judges 2014 (Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr.), I was hesitant with watching the new season premiere, especially from the drama of Season 12 and Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. They brought in new producers and new judges and tried to bring back life to a dying show, at least ratings wise. So, here we are. Two weeks into American Idol Season 13 and the ratings continue to go down and yet, I am loving the show again! So, why is no one watching American Idol 2014, especially with reruns of shows going up against them? Let’s figure it out in our American Idol 2014 spoilers below!
Let’s talk numbers for Week 2 on American Idol Season 13: Wednesday night’s show brought in 13.29 million viewers and a 4.0 rating for the 18-49 demo. This was down from last week’s premiere of 4.7, but up from Thursday’s 3.9 rating. However, it was down from a 5.5 rating for a similar show during Season 12! Thursday’s show brought in 12.59 million viewers and a 3.3 rating! Again, down from a 3.9 rating from Week 1 and down from a 5.2 rating for Season 12 at the same time!
So, why is no one watching? To be honest, I don’t know. I think a lot of people are disgusted with the show and think it has gone past it’s prime, so they won’t watch in hopes of FOX canceling it. That will never happen, especially with “bad ratings” for Idol, they are still good ratings for any network. Season 12 was a disaster, but I think Season 13 is going to be very good and the camaraderie of the judges is great, so that is intriguing to watch on it’s own!
