Simon Cowell to Leave American Idol
In an interview with Fox News, Simon said he decided to leave the show after this season, because "I don't think you should be doing the same thing over and over again. I hope and believe it's still the No. 1 show in America, which is a pretty good place to be. I think in a way it's a good thing for the show, because it breaks it up. You know it'll be speculation as to who's going to replace me, and more shows need that," he said. "You can't have the same people the whole time, it gets boring."
The latest season of American Idol has its two-hour premiere tonight on Fox, starting at 8/7c.
