NBC needs to figure this show out once and for all. I actually liked last season with Craig Robinson. JB Smove is not host material and takes much more away from the show than he brings to the table. I like the judges for Season 8, but the comedians suck! Why can't they just go with regional auditions? Half of these guys are national touring acts and the fact that they have not made it makes them less than appealing to me in this show.
This show has potential to be so much more than what it is but NBC keeps screwing it up. Take it back to bare bones. What kinda show woul American Idol be if you had seen the talent on TV or in clubs already.
Worst season ever. No wonder the show has been cancelled again and again.
