’American Idol’ panel, host returning next season
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Fox says it’s bringing back the same trio of "American Idol" judges for the show’s 14th season.
The network has announced that Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. will be judging singers again in 2015, and Ryan Seacrest will remain the host.
This year’s "American Idol" included the show’s lowest-rated finale ever, part of a continuing ratings slide.
The network is taking the show’s downfall into account in scheduling, saying it will air fewer hours next season, and in many weeks there will be just one episode instead of two.
