We all know that next year will be the last time American Idol will cross our TV screens. And since many shows spend their last seasons looking back on the past while reliving some former glory, it should come as no surprise that American Idol will be doing the same thing.
because shows leave the air for a big chunk of the winter, fans are often left on big cliffhangers, including deaths, secret love affairs and more. The good news? We can already tell you when some of your favorites will be coming back.
Have you ever had a job that you hated through and through? For talk show host extraordinaire Ellen DeGeneres, that job was being a panel judge on American Idol, and that's mostly because she doesn't like being a rude jerk to people.
American Idol has cycled through a decent number of judges over the years, but it’s clear that some of those judges have liked the gig more than others. Recently Mariah Carey spoke out to say she absolutely hated being on American Idol for one paltry season.
When Fox made the decision to end American Idol just a few short days ago, the network announced they wanted the singing competition to end while it could still go out with a bang. Unfortunately, it looks like we've already hit the whimper stage.
Well, Fox just made an earth-shattering move. The network announced today that American Idol will be ending its run, although not immediately .Currently, the veteran singing competition series is airing Season 14, and the network has plans to move forward with the show for a little longer.
The musician, like some reality competition winners, thinks the contract he was forced to sign is not in his long-term best interests. So, he's going to war with the American Idol co-producer that is causing him major problems.
We’ve literally been writing about the decline in American Idol’s ratings for years, but it should be noted that American Idol probably isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
This list features shows that all started out in pretty great places. These shows even found real success, but recently, it’s become pretty clear that they’re moving downward and show no signs of improving. In fact, these drop-offs can’t even be directly attributed to increases in DVR. Instead, a tangible percentage of viewers seem to be looking in other places for content.
American Idol is losing another familiar face. Coming off record low finale ratings and negative forecasts from most observers, the reality competition program is saying goodbye to longtime sponsor Coca-Cola.

We’ve compiled a handy guide of 2015 premiere and return dates. The schedule is a work in progress, and dates are subject to change as we head into midseason season.

Sticking around on the same series for 13 years is a pretty incredible feat, regardless of what the show is. Reality TV is an even more fickle landscape for mainstays, and the surprisingly long-lasting American Idol is losing one of the few people who’d been around since it started.
After years of sagging ratings and lessened interest, FOX executives have decided to tinker with two of their longest running programs. One-time reality juggernaut American Idol will be cut from two nights a week to one, and Glee will likely get its episode count reduced from the 22 it was originally promised.
American Idol has begun churning out promos for its upcoming thirteenth season, including three that debuted online today and tease the audition process, but seem to go out of their way to keep us from actually hearing any of the voices of this year’s crop of Idol hopefuls. I guess we’ll have to wait until we get a bit closer to the Season 13 debut for any substantial footage from the auditions.
American Idol has undergone several transitional variations in its impressive twelve seasons, but for its upcoming thirteenth it wants to remind you of two things: superstars are found here, and the judges — they swear! — are ready to have fun again. And what Idol may lack, it makes up for with a track record of established, juggernaut careers. Sure…it’s been awhile since a Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood was born from the show's stage, but still: Idol wants you to come home. Will you?
