Simon will return to ‘American Idol’
Insult-happy American Idol fans, rejoice! Simon Cowell is staying put
— and for quite a while. Fox announced today that both the
acid-tongued judge and the show he helped turn into a ratings — and
radio — juggernaut will be around for at least five more installments
(counting the one that premieres this January). Apparently, Idol
creator Simon Fuller decided that little copyright-infringement lawsuit
against Cowell wasn’t that big a deal after all (the suit was settled
quietly out of court). You know what this means, people? More Kellys,
Clays, Carries, and Bos! Can you stand the excitement? I can’t. I’m
already attempting to program my TiVo a half-decade in advance.
Are we happy now?
