Ryan Seacrest Points Finger Over American Idol Ratings Decline
Â Ryan Seacrest says he knows why American Idol took a ratings hit this season.
It's the fault of the show's most visible presence: Simon Cowell.
When asked about the decline, reports Canadaâs Globe and Mail, Seacrest replied, âWell, the knee-jerk reaction would be Simon.â
Seacrest says thereâs just too much of the acid-tongued judge: âClearly thereâs an over saturation of his character.â
The host then pointed out that the ratings are still high, and addressed buzz that bosses want to change some of the judges (such as replacing Randy and Paula with Britney Spears).
âThatâs clearly rumor,â he said. âIâm positive you canât recreate the chemistry that we have with the group on American Idol."
