We all know that Randy Jackson has "yo yo yo, dawg'ed" his way out of the thirteenth season of American Idol, and rumors are swirling that Nicki Minaj is right on his heels.  So who plans to stick around?

Well, Keith Urban wants to judge another round provided the show isn't canceled after jumping the shark a few years ago.  That's the kind of commitment I like to see from my superstars turned reality critics!  I wonder when Mariah Carey will weigh in with her two cents…

So apparently there's room for one more at the judge's table alongside Keith Urban and Mariah Carey.  Not only is Randy Jackson hitting the road, it's now being reported that Nicki Minaj won't be returning for another season of American Idol.  Are people still watching?

I'll admit, I used to be obsessed with AI, but I couldn't tell you a recent winner.  I did, however, name every last judge for a question last week at my local pizza place's trivia night.  Blogging comes in handy all the time!  It seems that I'm going to be forced to remember even more as the revolving door of panelists continues to…well…revolve.

Are y'all ready for another round of American Idol musical chairs? 

American Idol's ratings are down a whopping 22% this season despite the addition of big name judges, country star Keith Urban, rapper Nicki Minaj, and pop diva Mariah Carey. The ratings-challenged series hit an all time low last week, attracting only 11 million viewers. In comparison, American Idol appealed to roughly 30 million viewers every week in its prime. Panic time!

Needless to say, Fox wants big changes, including all new judges. Again

One judge beat them to the punch. Randy Jackson, the lone original judge, announced yesterday that season twelve will be his last. "Yo! Yo! Yo!" Randy told E!. "To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol I have decided it is time to leave after this season."

Duck Dynasty

If you're not watching Duck Dynasty, you're really missing out on fun-filled, family-friendly, drama-free "reality" television.  However, I'm guessing that the majority of you ARE watching because season three's one hour finale was record-breaking.  A&E's gem garnered 9.6 million viewers making it the most watched show on Wednesday night, blowing normal competitors like American Idol and Survivor out of the water.

Entertainment Weekly has the numbers, and it's truly phenomenal.  American Idol only had a 3.3 rating on Wednesday, with Survivor scoring a 2.9 rating.  The Robertson's series averaged 8.4 million total viewers per episode this season which is up 95% from its sophomore season, delivering a 4.3 rating among adults 18-49. Clearly, Soncie has been spreading the word to get folks to watch her beloved Si!  Numbers like this have catapulted the series to into ratings gold, making it the cable's most watched reality show so far this year.  If that wasn't enough, Duck Dynasty is the second most watched show (reality or otherwise!) behind AMC's Walking Dead.  Way to go, Robertsons, and keep it coming!

To celebrate the monumentous occasion, A&E tweeted the above picture.  It's proof positive that you can never, ever have too much camo.

FOX 'American Idol' finalists party

Mariah Carey, Ryan Seacrest, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson headed over to The Grove last night to celebrate American Idol's finalists. 

Among those in attendance: Candice Glover, Burnell Taylor, Curtis Finch Jr., Amber Holcomb, Janelle Arthur, Angie Miller, Paul Jolley and more!  Absent from the festivities: Nicki Minaj.

In other Idol news, despite often being the top-watched show of the night, the ratings continue to decline each week.  According to Deadline Hollywood, the show took another dip on Wednesday night.  They shared, "that’s the fourth week in a row for the show to hit such a low and the worst Wednesday performances since Idol’s first season in summer 2002. Also down in total viewership with 12.7 million from last week’s 13.1 million." 

While 12 million viewers is nothing to sneeze at, the consistent decline shows that more and more people are jumping ship each week. 

TELL US – ARE YOU STILL WATCHING AMERICAN IDOL? DO YOU THINK ANYTHING CAN SAVE IT FROM SINKING?

My faith in humanity has been totally restored.  Not only did the powers that be here at Reality Tea have me start recapping Duck Dynasty (score!), but apparently the rest of the world is finally catching on to reality's best kept secret.  The world loves the Robertsons, and that makes me love the world.

As if my love of Si, Willie, Jase, Phil, and their families isn't enough to keep me warm at night, now I am so excited to report that viewers everywhere are following suit.  Last night's ratings for Duck Dynasty were through the roof, and A&E can just sit back and pat itself on the back for a job well done.  The Duck Commander crew has arrived, and I hope they aren't going anywhere.

Kelly Clarkson

While American Idol might be struggling to maintain its desired ratings, Idol's past contestants certainly aren't struggling to maintain their cash money. 

Forbes recently released its list of top American Idol earners from 2012. 

Kelly Clarkson tops the list – moving up from fifth place in 2011 – with $8 million in earnings. Kelly can thank her "gold" album Stronger, appearances on The Voice, Toyota commercial, and successful tour for her success. 

Kelly stole the number one spot away from Carrie Underwood. This year, Carrie shares the number two spot with Chris Daughtry's band Daughtry – with $5 million in earnings. Forbes reports that Carrie and Chris each earn six figures for one single concert. It must be nice to be an American Idol!
