American Idol’s ratings are dropping and dropping and FOX is not very happy about it.
We already knew that they where thinking about giving the show a a make over — but now it sounds like Idol could be getting a full-fledged facelift!
The President of Fox Networks Group recently announced he was going to “throw all resources’” at improving the show’s ratings again.
This is what he said:
“This is still the number one non-sport show in the United States. I would say that any network executive in the country or probably in the world would love to be sitting up here, saying we have this franchise and we’re dealing with the fact that its ratings are off a bit.”
Still, FOX admits the show needs work. And, with a little bit of work:
“We are optimistic it’s going to continue on for 15, 16, 17 seasons.”
If the show doesn’t carry on then all that talent will just go to waist.
Oprah Winfrey will be airing her Whitney Houston tribute this Thursday witch is on for two hours.
On Sunday Winfrey got in to alot of trobble on Twitter by saying:
“Every 1 who can please turn to OWN especially if u have a Neilsen box.”
As soon as she post this twitter went made and people said that she is ”begging for viewers.”
The the following statement came out:
“In accordance with our policies and procedures, Nielsen is reviewing this incident with our clients and we may withhold, breakout and/or make a note in the ratings. We take any violation of our policy seriously and will work with clients to resolve the situation.”
Oprah then went into saying:
“‘Desperate’ not ever a part of my vocab. Just making a request, since I can’t watch myself. Choice is yours.”
“The word ‘please’ is used as courtesy not a beg.”
“Unethical a little harsh don’t u think? Seemed like it made sense to me. Sorry if u’re offended.”
The she went on tweeting:
“You really are more than a number.”
We think people got the wrong end of the stick and Oprah dint mean the way she said it what do you think would you watch her network now or not let us know!?
