Just as expected the season premiere of American Idol sucked.  Unfortunately, this episode was all about the divas and less about those trying out for the show.  What made this show worse were the profiles of those people who were rejected by the judges.  Why waste time on these people when they don’t make it anyway?  I guess they have to fill 2 hours somehow.

This is the whole problem with the show:  Why can’t we have just one hour shows and use the other hour for some other show?  It’s apparent that FOX expected the downward plunge of the ratings and down by almost 20% they declined.  Maybe this is a sign that this may be the last season of the show and won’t live to see unlucky season 13.

Sad that this show has become the “Battle of Fake Boob Divas”.  I really thought that this show was much much than that.  I will unfortunately continue to watch to see if things get better, but my hopes aren’t very high given the preview for episode #2.  I will write more on this as the episodes continue on.  Right now, there were no stand out performers that should or could make it to the finals.

My score:  5.

Summary:

This show is now for die-hard fans only.  It won’t make anybody who never watched before tune in now.  This is just more of the same as previous years, but with more fighting.
