    Unfunny, untalented and now unwatchable...

    DeGeneres will replace Abdul as 'American Idol' judge, Fox says

    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES — Ellen DeGeneres is dancing her way onto “American Idol,” replacing Paula Abdul as the show’s fourth judge.

    In a release today from Fox and the show’s producers, DeGeneres described herself as a longtime fan of the hit singing contest.

    Abdul, who announced she was quitting the show amid a contract dispute, had been replaced by a succession of guest judges as “American Idol” started next season’s auditions.

    DeGeneres, host of a daytime talk show, wasn’t among them. She will join Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi for the ninth season starting in January.

    I completely disagree with the first post.

    Ellen's awesome, and I'm almost certain this can't fail.

    Huge upgrade over Paula.

    OK, I'm outvoted. But I still think she's unfunny and untalented...
    Like BYH last year, I won't be watching.

    I just honestly can't wrap my mind around this. I mean, I know that humor is subjective (Hi Arnold!) but...really?

    Sorry to disillusion you, but no. Never. Not from the days where she was a mousey secretary on some real estate show on Fox.
    I can't dive to the remote fast enough.
