Mariah Carey's judge chair has become the hot seat -- "American Idol" ratings are sliding and we've learned producers are bringing Jennifer Lopez back, but will it be a permanent move? Would a switch make you watch more?

Plus, criminals beware -- Dog and Beth Chapman are back on the hunt ... and call in to explain how their new CMT show is taking bounty hunting to a whole 'nother level.

And, Gwyneth Paltrow is on the top of People's "most beautiful woman" list -- but if this list seems like a bogus ploy to land big interviews, that's because ... well ... just watch.

Um, NO, Harvey you do NOT have good IDOL sources. Everyone else has already proven you wrong. You are poking a dead dog with a really big stick but the dog still isn't moving.

When will they get it?? The ratings plummeted because people are TIRED of the show. Jennifer, like Mariah brings NOTHING to the table. Fox needs to write the show off. It had a great run. Let It Go.

Wow ...    

Nicki is the problem with AI. She turned off many viewers long before the show aired. Because of her "off with her head" BS.

Idols problem is that the performers this year are boring, nothing new.

COME ON, HARVEY, explains to us why you took all the posts you put up about the Hackers. Did someone hit a nerve on the board or did you get a phone call from someone in higher power demanding that you pull them?

Yes, HARVEY, we've discussed this ADNAUSEUM. People mag always picks their most beautiful out of a group of folks that have several movies coming out. George Clooney was picked when he had three coming out, Brad Cooper had three coming out. People Mag lost all credibility when they started putting REALITY players in their mags alongside REAL CELEBS. I'd rather buy an issue of THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER than People.

The problem is Nikki Minaj, not Mariah. She's the reason I've been boycotting this season. If they take Minaj off the show I will resume watching.

ADELE is a beautiful woman, and she's a good role model, she's talented and comfortable with her weight. She shows young girls that being a stick person isn't necessary.
