Update: American Idol scored a preliminary 6.0 adults 18-49 rating
American Idol has its Season 12 premiere tonight, which will see the much-hyped introduction of new judges Niki Minaj and Mariah Carey (oh, and there’s Keith Urban too…). Will the new judging table bring in the viewers? The success of The Voice shows there’s still interest in the reality-talent format, but will American Idol still prove itself to be the gold standard tonight? Last year’s Wednesday season premiere earned a 7.4 rating, which was down from the previous year’s 9.8 adults 18-49 rating. Make your predictions for tonight below and tell us why in the comments!
