American Idol is at it again. TVLine reports ABC is now interested in a revival of the cancelled FOX TV show.
Earlier, we reported producers of the singing competition show were in talks with NBC for a possible revival. However, plans fell apart last month due to a disagreement between the show’s producers, Fremantle Media and Core Media Group.
Now, it seems ABC has reached out to Fremantle to reboot American Idol for a possible 2018 premiere. It’s unclear if the show’s producers will move forward with with the network’s plans.
It is clear, though, that host Ryan Seacrest will probably not be involved in a revival. Recently, he was announced as the new co-host for Live with Kelly Ripa.
What do you think? Are you a fan of American Idol? Would you watch a revival?
Too many singing competitions right now. Can’t watch them all. Without Seacrest, I probably won’t watch.
I will watch it if Keith Urban is a Judge.
I might be lured back IF it replaced the Bachelor as DWTS’s sister show. Also like the rumor of old contestants as judges. Too bad for us that the more successful Idol Alumni are too busy to come back .
Keep this crap dead. No more reality shows.
I absolutely would watch the show. I think it is a great show with nice talent, and the judges are great.
I actually liked it with Keith, Jennifer and Harry. I do think they need to change the format, make it fresher, update it. But yeah I’d give it a chance.
Like comments already posted, the format is dated. However, if the format were to change to include entertainers in general. Not just singers, but anyone who performs solo on stage to entertain. A newer, better version of AGT. Pre-screen the talent with YouTube type auditions. Then, only the best entertainers appear before the judges for auditions.
NO I WOULD NOT WATCH – PLAIN AND CLEAR !!!
In a word, NO!!!
Forget about reviving American Idol. You should be focusing on reviving The X Factor instead. I miss The X Factor.
