New 'American Idol' Will Be 'More Compassionate,' Judges Reveal

American Idol’ reboot What’s the verdict

American Idol’ reboot What’s the verdict

Sundays with "America's Funniest Home Videos" and "Shark Tank".

What do you think are the American Idol 16 ratings expectations, and do you have any desire at all to watch?

And also something of a first.

By giving fans instant access to millions of songs, streaming services further dampen the impact of music competition series.

The new American Idol premieres Sunday on ABC and you'll be hearing some Chicago area voices singing out to prove they're ready for stardom.

So Idol is moving from Fox to ABC, with Ryan Seacrest still the host and franchise newcomers Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry as the judges.

The question is whether enough people are excited or curious about "Idol's" return, and then get hooked enough to stick around and sustain a decent-sized audience.

They're natural and at ease with each other and the job, and usually clear and direct in their feedback, and this sportive trio is the best surprise about ABC's version of the show. Warning: It's not pretty.

If ABC has set lower expectations, then those can nearly certainly be met - not necessarily aspiring to become the music competition version of "America's Funniest Home Videos", but a franchise that can match or marginally improve upon those waning days on Fox.

Three very different views of the future - none of them optimistic - are coming to DVD and Blu-ray this week, with Tuesday's releases of the first season of "The Handmaid's Tale", the second season of "Into the Badlands" and the third season of "Fear the Walking Dead". Given that artists now have so many options for sharing their music, it is unlikely that the next Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood will end up on "American Idol". ABC burned off the remainder of the season in June and July. After 15 seasons on Fox, and less than two years off-air, the once-popular television series back-this time on ABC. It is the same one that bottlenecks the impact of "The Voice" and prevented "The Four" from becoming a major hit: the episode does not make viewers care.

That is, if anyone had actually watched. It will unveil O.J. Simpson's infamous "If I Did It" interview - which was set to air in 2006 before an uproar caused the network to pull it - opposite the Idol bow. But just when music lovers were beginning to get over it, ABC announced its return with Season 16 past year after acquiring the rights to the series. "Maybe you're a Broadway star, maybe you're in voice-over, maybe you're gonna do jingles. But to change the show drastically in terms of format, I think, would be a mistake".

CONTESTANTS: Some of the names of singers who are auditioning on the show have been released. But it didn't come back. "Tell us more, '" Perry joked to GMA.

You can download the ABC app on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, XBOX 360, on supported Android devices from the Google Play store, on supported Kindle Fire tablets from the Amazon Appstore, and on supported Apple devices at the App Store.

In early episodes, the show is marginally revised and instantly familiar. Facing intense competition - including from NBC's The Voice - the show had plummeted almost 70 percent in the ratings during the four seasons before a somewhat rejuvenated final season. It too was one and one after averaging 0.9 and 3.6 million viewers.
