Harry Connick, Jr. Next ‘Idol’ Judge?

American Idol is in its 12th season, and ratings are slipping.  Eleven million viewers tuned in last Thursday night. The show had a feeble 2.5 rating among adults 18-49. That’s a 7 percent drop from the previous week. Producers are reportedly looking to change things up in an effort to halt the show’s ratings skid.  Idol reps are rumored to be looking for new judges for next season.

“You know, they kinda wanted to know if I would be interested in it. It’s been talked about before, who knows what’ll happen in the future.”   -Harry Connick, Jr.

New Orleans native Harry Connick Jr. was recently a guest mentor on the show. There’s speculation he may join the panel next season. Harry reportedly told E! that he’s been approached about taking a seat for season 13.  During the weeks leading up to this season, I had my suspicions that the “feud” between Mariah Carey & Nikki Minaj was contrived by the show’s producers. It’s apparently more real than I thought. Maybe it’s turning people off. I don’t know. What do you think?
