    I think that the overexposure of Ryan Seacrest, along with the ringers, below average talent and the best acts being voted out for social reasons or the producers rigging for percieved ratings, are the reasons AI is still falling.

    For far too many seasons, the still secret and possibly fixed voting has seemed to ensure that the best talent loses.

    That’s not a way to keep veiwers.

    of course the voting is rigged….it always has been. the Final two is set even before they get out of audition rounds. The judges are also told what to say. They are reading something when they are talking and sometimes the judges don’t even watch the performances because they already have a script so what’s the point?

    I’m so sick of seeing the word flop used in the wrong context, I wish there was a banned word list on this site and that word would be first on the censored list

    @If Idol really is fixed (and that remains to be seen or revealed), Seacrest would probably know something about the technology used to do it. One of his very first jobs in front of the camera (probably THE first) was as a correspondent for a computer-tech show called ‘CNET Central’, on Syfy back in 1995 when it was still known as the Sci-Fi Channel. Richard Hart and Gina St. John hosted it, with John C. Dvorak, Sofie Formica and Hari Sreenivasan as frequent correspondents, along with Ryan.
