American Idol Season 10 - He critiqued American Idol's wannabe singers for nine seasons, but don't ask Simon Cowell to offer a lengthy assessment on the show's newest judges, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.
"I haven't seen a full episode yet, I saw a three minute sort of recap last week," Cowell told reporters Monday of the 10th season of Idol, the series he bowed out of last spring. "From what I've seen and what I've heard, it all seems to be going well. I always thought that would be the case. What I was more concerned about was the ratings falling off a cliff, meaning that that whole genre is now over."
So why hasn't Cowell made Idol appointment television? He's currently across the pond in London, and told the Today Show's Matt Lauer he has yet to tune in due to a sheer time difference.
From the footage the former judge has seen, though, Cowell says Lopez and Tyler appear to be doing him proud.
