    Thumbs up American Idol this season. YUCK !!!

    Is it just me or is this season starting out POOR. I think the judges are more impressed with themselves than the contestants. I felt sooo sorry for that darling girl last night when the judges started arguing with each other about ??? and girl just stood there looking bewildered. Most of the people they have sent to Hollywood can't sing so WHY are they wasting everybodies time? I won't be watching this season... your thoughts ???

    These shows are more about the celebrity judges than the contestants. I stopped watching most of television years ago.

    Can't stand the judges this year! The worst is Nicki Minaj who I personally don't think is a great singer and therefore a great choice to begin with...her comments are almost embarrassing. Keith Urban is too quiet and seems totally out of place like HE is embarrassed to be there. At least he can sing...Mariah is a fantastic singer but a bit of a diva. The constant bickering between Mariah and Nicki is a huge turn-off, too. There is just no chemistry with these judges and I am getting tired for them to let singers audition that are absolutely tone-deaf...it was fun in the beginning but is getting old. I have to say that I liked last year's judges; loved Steven Tyler. He was fun and unpredictable and all of the judges liked each other and it showed....

    The two girl judges this year are so obnoxious, I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes of the show - I don't know if they are putting through any real talent or not. I gave it a try on two nights and that's it - no American Idol for me this year.

    I've never watched any of the AI shows at all.

    I stopped watching a couple of years ago when it just turned into another of the "trash tv" offerings that dominate the channels

    I watched it a little last night, I like watching the early round for the comedy factor, but they seemed to pass everyone I saw. Bring back Simon!!!

    I don't care for the current style of singing, so I don't watch it after the first round.

    The panel of "experts" has left me shaking my head.
    Its a sad choice for sure.....the thing that sticks in my craw is that these are the role models for the youth of america...Niki manage a role model....really really reallly sad. People behaving badly....getting attention and wealth....really sad.

    Not a good season for the Idols....The judges are soooooooooo bad and horrible to the contestants. The show has really gone down hill from the first season. I did try to watch on night one but now I know it is not worth wasting my time on so i WILL NOT BE watching this season. I wish I good be as important as the judges think they are......

    I only ever watch the auditions anyway because they are amusing, but they can lose Niki Minaj, she is awful!

    Yes, Niki Minaj is an embarresment. Don't know if it would be any better if they got rid of her. Sure miss the first few years. And, X Factor needs to ditch the Kardasian(sp) for the next season! She only knows one question and needs some one to teach her how to dress.

    Totally agree the Niki Minaj thing going on is a disaster, I don't mind Mariah, and I feel for Keith Urban.
    I predict a major shake up of the judges before the contest is over, but... by then no one will be watching so we will never know. Ha.
    The Voice is actually better. IMHO

    I guess it was worth all the tacky to get Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreey, and Kelly Clakrkson out of the bunch. The female judges this year are not worth paying attention to.

    It has turned into a joke. I watched one audition and the female judge who I've never heard of made me want to slap her back to earth. Who is she anyway? She looks like a bad joke. Does she always dress and behave that way?

    I've always enjoyed the show and followed each season closely. This year, I watched it for about 5 minutes and I was done-through-finished-ended! I will not watch it again. I agree with you-this season doomed the show.

    This is by far the worse combination of judges ever!! Steven Tyler, JLo & Randy were the best combination. Nicki Minaj is a poor role model by all accounts. Think this is going to be a major downfall for Idol. Such a shame...I use to enjoy this show.

    Nicky Minaj thinks it's HER show for some reason. This may be my last season to watch.

    Yeah, I didn't even bother watching this year. The judges (aside from Keith Urban) seem just to obnoxious to me. I think this show should have ended when Stephen Tyler and JLo left. At least it could have ended with a bit of dignity. Now it's just hobbling along pathetically, waiting for the cancellation ax to fall.

    I haven't bothered to watch it since Adam Lambert came in second, there was definitely something wrong with that result.

    I hate shows like this. The only reality show I watch is "Duck Dynasty."
