American Idol 2011 News: Simon Cowell Admits To Only Seeing 3 Minutes Of New Season

Even though he finished one year shy of critiquing wannabe superstars for a decade on the show, ornery Simon Cowell admits that he has only seen ‘3 minutes’ of the new season with Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and stalwart Randy Jackson manning the judges panel.

“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.”
