Ryan Seacrest Jokes On Air About American Idol's Low Ratings

Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. pose for photos while attending the American Idol XIV Top Finalists Party held at The District by Hannah An on Wednesday (March 11) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The Idol stars were joined by fellow judge Keith Urban and Fox Television Group Chairman & CEO Dana Walden.

Earlier in the night, Jennifer looked amazing in a short orange dress for the live show.

During the episode, host Ryan Seacrest joked about their show’s low ratings when asking two Empire stars how it feels to have the number one show on television.

“To be number one… Oh yes, I remember those days,” Ryan said.

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Valentino dress, Versace shoes, Vhernier ring, and a Monica Vinader bracelet for the live taping. She is wearing a Marchesa dress and Casadei shoes at the party.

    ALove American Idol, look forward to it every week. The greatest part of the whole show is Keith Urban. He can criticize a contestant in the kindest way, trying to help them. Keith is one of the most talented musicians going today. Like J Lo also but Harry tries to run the show, don’t think he is as great as he thinks he is.

    JLow looks weird with the white asian eyes. Seems like she’s tired of watching herself in the mirror and is trying to reinvent herself

  • SkinnyFat

    JLow, how do you sit down in those ridiculously short dresses? She looks tack and cheap and like she had her eyes done. So try hard.

  • Dee

    Just Jared, if you are going to crop the picture of the judges, most of us would prefer to look at Keith Urban.

  • Lily Ross

    Worst season ever! That’s what they get for hiring receding hairline JLOw who can’t sing a note. Bring back Paula.

  • jrpieces

    I watch few moments from the show for the first time last time..on and off saw parts of about 5 perfomances which ALL SUCKED by the way and they were suppose to be in the TOP 12?????? Really???? No wonder you have such low ratings. compared to THE VOICE they got nothing…THE VOICE Blows them out of the water

  • SweetCiCi

    Yes, Dee, Keith should NEVER be cropped from any photos. He’s such a handsome man.

  • She Stinks!

    Is that the talentless low class hag JHO or some Asian hooker that walked in off Melrose?

  • Slick Nick

    LOL not even close, this is one of the most talented years in Idol history. The Voice is borrrrriiiing. Some of them were off last night due to the format, finding out you make it and then forced to calm down and sing 10 seconds later. Not a natural way to perform but if you’ve watched all season you’d realize the talent level is crazy good.

  • BLN

    I just watched the show and it really sux. Low ratings are now nearly no ratings. They ran out of good singers many season ago.

  • SweetCiCi

    This season really has some awesome talent. I love Daniel, everyone is ragging that he’s getting votes because he’s so cute, but he has huge talent and charisma. I really think Jax is going to win this season.

  • Mark A Rusin

    Every good thing runs its course…..this is no different. Last week, 3rd in it’s timeslot out of 5 networks! Sad to see.

  • jrpieces

    The voice boring??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME ??

  • Dee

    The Voice–judges pretending they are having so much fun. It got old fast. Sorry but I prefer American Idol. Yes they do have a lot of talented singers.

  • Dee

    No not kidding.

  • Dee

    Remember they tried Paula, didn’t work anymore.

  • 1MzLiz

    I agree, Dee; however, I wish Keith had never gotten involved with this show. Between J-Lo and Scott Borchetta, Idol has lost any semblance of wholesomeness; those two make me want to take a shower. I’ll continue to watch Idol because of Keith, but as far as the show, itself – something’s rotten in Denmark. BTW, Dana Walden is a a beautiful woman and she makes J-Lo look like a street walker.

    Unfortunately, and I do not like saying this, nonetheless this year’s American Idol has been unbelievably boring. Compared more to a game show than a singing-talent contest. Then even more unbelievable the judges wasting their “save” on someone who absolutely cannot sing. What has happened to American Idol in 2015?

  • linda garris

    I hate all singing competition. I do love Harry and Blake. That said the only successful singers are from idol and Blake’s team, i take a peek now and then. I think idol went down after the fix a couple yrs ago..and the producers r putting lousy singers in along w a few good to keep pc happy. I laugh when i hear voice results. Guess people love Blake and country music. I think all Blake’s winners r doing well and some who didn’t win.ie swon bros. Where r the other winners?hanging out w xfactor winners &Candice

  • linda garris

    Oh watched a few ep only bc of Daniel. Im convinced hes gonna do just fine. I guess tours aren’t doing well cause only five go. Shame for daniel and Joey. So will a rocker win again?i doubt it. Clark or Nick. And people will b on here pissed if wgwg wins again. Well if that’s what America likes,what can u do. I remember when country music was considered corny. Well look at them now. Even my gd loves country.and scotty mccreery despite rude comments hhe can sing and perform. Last 2 winners stink. Candice was chosen by producers not voters. I checked percentage of votes every wk and angie was way ahead. Week candice won,those records weren’t anywhere to b found. Like Hillary email. Lol not funny america chose angie

  • linda garris

    Idky i dont like Jlo. Shes beautiful and personable,but she’s not honest abt many singers. Like the save this yr. He can’t sing a little bit,but quite the performer. Jlo acted like he should win it all. Thats the only reason. Idc abt her 22 yr old bf.
