HCD Research just released results from a small poll they did about American Idol. They asked 800 viewers if they would watch American Idol more, less, or the same if judge Simon Cowell left the show.
The results? About 46% they’d watch either more or the same; only 7% said less. Cowell was also picked as the respondents’ favorite judge.
How about you? Paula Abdul is already gone and new judge Kara DioGuardi got mixed results in her first season. If Simon Cowell left, would you continue to watch the show?

The new season of American Idol kicks off in January with new judge Ellen DeGeneres. It promises to be an interesting and fun season.
