    Oh, I wanted to add about American Idol. It has been on for 11 years now, so of course its ratings won’t be the same as they were in the early years however since reality shows are cheaper to produce, I am sure Fox is still happy. In recent years, it has become too much about who is judging the show instead of finding talent. Now there is also the Voice and X Factor and it gets to be too much of the same ole, same ole. I haven’t watched Idol on a regular basis since 2009.
