Dancing With the Stars Beats American Idol For the First Time Ever in Nielsen Ratings

Is American Idol Past Its Prime?

It's generally accepted that the current season of American Idol is far from the show's best, and now it's showing in ratings. Last week the singing competition was ousted by Dancing With the Stars for the first time ever. I can't say I'm surprised — I'm still hooked on the show, but the talent is a bit lackluster and the judges have been all over the place, earning Idol a spot on my list of shows that need a face-lift. With Simon already on the way out, I'm starting to think that maybe Idol should quit while it's still ahead before it crumbles entirely. What are your thoughts — is American Idol past its prime?

I only watched one season, the one with Katherine McPhee and Taylor Hicks. I've never really been able to get into it since then. This year the contestants all seems so blah, everytime I try to watch I'm so underwhelmed that I end up changing the channel. I think it's over.
