American Idol still clings onto the title of America’s most popular TV show despite its drop in over 4 million viewers.  Outspoken judge Simon Cowell’s departure from Idol certainly played a role in this decline.

Although new judges Steven Tyler and Jenifer Lopez attempt to spice things up and keep the show viewer worthy, the show is simply not as appealing without America’s beloved former judges Paula and Simon.

Hopeful Idol contestants still camp out in line for a chance to perform for the new judges but the survival of this reality show phenomenon is definitely in question.
