Not Much Happens In American Idol Hollywood Week

February 13, 2007 12:01 AM by Joe Reality

According to American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe, the reason that the
Hollywood week cut from 172 contestants down to 40 contestants is being
done in one episode rather two episodes is because “There wasn’t that
much that occurred in Hollywood that warranted two episodes.  We
normally stretch it out too far.”

Lythgoe makes a very good point in that the Hollywood episodes have often been one of the slowest and most boring parts of the show.  Devoting less time to Hollywood week is probably the right call, even though it might be tough on viewers who might only get to see a glimpse of one of their favorites from the audition episodes who doesn’t make it through.   

American Idol Hollywood Auditions air on Fox on Tuesday, February 13 from 8:00 to 9:00 PM ET/PT.  In this episode, the contestants will endure a grueling rehearsal schedule and group auditions before being cut from 172 contestants down to 40 contestants. 

American Idol Top 24 Semifinalists show airs on Fox on Wednesday, February 14 from 9:00 to 10:00 PM ET/PT.  In this episode, the American Idol judges will cut the contestants down from 40 to only 24 semifinalists.

    It says in the article that Hollywood is “one of the slowest and most boring parts of the show”, but I think that Hollywood is very exciting.

    i agree with NJE. hollywood week is my favorite part of the show. i never think it’s slow or boring. i’m actually really disappointed that they cut it down this year. the auditions tho are boring and slow. i can only listen to so many horrible auditions before i put my tv on mute or change the channel. i gotta say i don’t think this season is as good as any of the previous ones yet.
