American Idol is back! While I have to admit that my personal interest in the show generally only goes as far as the freak show contestants in the early rounds, the powers that be did do a great job in reworking the crew lineup. After Simon Cowell left the show it lost a great deal of its tension-filled appeal. Then with a quick exit by Ellen Degeneres, it’s not a stretch to think that the show could be on the way down.
But it looks like their current lineup should be entertaining, particularly because Steven Tyler is such a character. The good news is that he apparently was a hit with viewers. Unfortunately, last night’s debut only drew in 26.1 million viewers, down 13 percent from last year.
Is your New Year workout slow out of the gate like the new American Idol ratings? Maybe a look back at some of the show’s biggest success stories in this week’s workout mix will provide a little inspiration.
