Mariah Carey vs Nicki Minaj feud fails to pull the viewers

Submitted by brad on Fri, 2013-01-18 05:38

American Idol kicked off this week with its lowest audience since its first season.

The buzz surrounding the Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj “feud” failed to translate to viewers and the series dropped 19 per cent on last year’s premiere.

The drop is roughly 4 million viewers, with a total of 17.9 tuning in to see the new judging panel of Carey, Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson.

The numbers are worrying, given how last season’s premiere was also down on 2011 by around 21 per cent.

One season may have been enough for Britney Spears on The X Factor USA.

The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that the singer is one the way out and will not be back for the third season of the show.

Her supposed exit can be put down to dropping ratings, with the show losing a significant portion of its audience to rival shows.

The show’s network, Fox, is yet to comment on whether she will be back.
