Idol lost followers because it had too many commercials and Mariah's comments were too long winded.

I think that's because of Mariah-Nicki's "on scree" cat fights. Sometimes it's funny but mostly annoying!

As already stated, Mariah , Nicki, and the commercials are all definite factors. The past couple of years I was sick of seeing the contestants "videos" that were nothing more than Ford commercials that sucked up even more time. Then there's the unlimited voting by pre-teens that have nothing better to do. They need limits to how many votes can come in from each source. They've been going downhill fast. I won't be watching anymore.
