On Wed. January 19th, American Idol returns to FOX-TV. However, in a recent poll, the show's better days may be a thing of the past.

A heavily revamped "American Idol" returns for a 10th season, but only 47 percent of "Idol" viewers questioned in a new poll said they would definitely or probably watch it. In fact, 67 percent of those taking part in the poll for The Hollywood Reporter magazine said they thought the best days of the show were over, despite the fact that they have changed up the faces at the judges table. The show is said to be "cooler," and less predictable. Reports indicate that we could see former contestants actually comepete amongst others previous winners/contestants.
