Is this long-running series getting a little winded in the 19th season of the American Idol TV show on ABC? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like American Idol is cancelled or renewed for season 20. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustrated when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we invite you to rate all of the 19th season episodes of American Idol here. *Status Update Below.
An ABC singing competition series, American Idol features Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan as judges in season 19 (the fourth season on ABC). Ryan Seacrest returns as host and Bobby Bones as the in-house mentor. After making it through the nationwide audition process, the contestant pool is narrowed through a series of elimination rounds. Once the contest reaches the semi-finals, although the judges offer their criticism, the decision to keep or cut a performer is up to the viewing audience. For a specified window of time, fans may vote for their favorites, via phone calls, text messages, and online. The winner claims the “American Idol” title and a recording contract.
