The music reality show that changed the lives of many and created careers for those who may not have had a chance is coming to an end. FOX announced today that American Idol will return in January for its 15th and Final Season.
American Idol was the top rated show on television for eight consecutive seasons. According to Nielsen, American Idol averaged more than 20 million viewers every season from 2003 (the second season) through 2011; however, the show has had an immense drop in ratings the last few seasons.
The way a lot of people see American Idol currently, it’s hard to remember how huge the show use to be. There was no competing with American Idol, period. It owned TV for the majority of its run. It is sad to see it go, but it is time. Hopefully they will have some great surprises lined up for next year!
