Revival of American Idol: People Weigh In

After taking a leave of absence from the air for one year, ABC announced a plan to bring American Idol back to life. The series is set to air in September although the new hosts and judges have not yet been announced.

 

The rebirth of the series has caused mix reviews with parents around the country who are either in support of or denial of the series return.

 

“I am very excited for family American Idol night to be back,” Sherry Sheridan, mother of 4 in a white suburban household said. “My family has been struggling to figure out what to talk about or watch on Monday/Wednesday nights without the added bonus of bashing innocent people trying to make a name for themselves with their shit voices as a family.”

 

Others are less excited about the release, saying American Idol ruined their lives and, consequently, the lives of their children.

 

“I remember when I tried out for American Idol, Simon Cowell was still the judge and he emotionally shredded me,” Brandon Miller, former contestant and father of two said. “My kids were there with me at the time and had to watch daddy get roasted and then leave without a ticket. I was heartbroken and crying leaving the stage as the camera was shoved in my face.”

 

Despite the mixed emotions, Miller and Sheridan could both agree on their excitement about the show being back for their chance to feel even better about themselves by watching countless people fail and only those who have a sad back-story succeed.
