American Idol To Undergo Changes As Fox Plans To Keep The Show Around For Many Years

June 04, 2012 08:00 AM by Lisa Princ

American Idol just wrapped up its season 11 finale, and now, the big wigs at Fox are trying to figure out what they can do to improve the show. Don’t worry though, despite the decline in ratings, the show ended the season as the number one non sports series, and Fox plans to keep Idol around for many years! Read on for more…

That’s right, despite the decline in ratings, American Idol still reigns supreme out of all the non sports series out there, which is why Fox announced that they would like to keep the show on air for at least another six seasons or more. But with that, we will also see some changes to the series.

“CKx, owned by the capital equity firm Apollo Global Management, will be rechristened Thursday as Core Media Group. Among its initial plans are a full-scale review, in conjunction with executives from the Fox network, of ‘American Idol,’ where ratings dropped by more than 30 percent this season. Within the next few weeks, the company also plans to acquire what the new president of Core, Marc Graboff, described as a ‘high-profile production company that has produced 25 series for cable networks,” The New York Post is reporting.

So, what types of changes will the show undergo? Well, one thing that they plan to address is the voting system, because, well, we all know the majority of voters are teenage girls. As for the judges, there is no word whether or not they will be changing them, but they plan to do whatever they can to keep the show in its top spot. Perhaps this means J LO will be replaced? Ah, we can hope for now.

    I have enjoyed Idol for years now and while I apprecited Simon’s “honesty”, I have really apprecited the “nicer” environment more. People do well with encouragement. I like Jimmy’s involvement alot. The clothing help was odd. Hair and makeup is more interesting, but not too much. I will continue to watch the show and definitely do not want new judges unless they are not mean. I like it fine now.
