Sorry had to miss the show last night to watch the Hornetâ€™s exciting OT win against Memphis. But my wife seemed to like the revamped "American Idol â€śshow last night. Tonight we get to see the New Orleans auditions.Â But the show did lose millions of viewers from last year with the addition of celebrity judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Some 26.1 million Americans tuned in for the 10th season premiere of the singing contest, down 13 percent on last year's opening show when nearly 30 million watched, Â but those numbers still crushed all other programming on Wednesday night. But after weeks of hype and curiosity over what producers called "a new era," the numbers were disappointing for producers hoping to restoring sparkle to the aging show and reversing a four years ratings slide. Television critics were mostly unimpressed with the new Judges as they weeded out good singers from the thousands of early auditions -- without popular judge Simon Cowell. Remember Simon, quit to launch his own talent show on Fox later in 2011. Hope the show without Simon doesnâ€™t get to nice and sweet and happy and zippy, you get the idea. But like I said my wife enjoyed the show alot and Iâ€™ll be watching the New Orleans auditions tonight
