Remember when American Idol tinkered with its three judge panel and decided to add a fourth? Well, Kara DioGuardi remembers and thanks the producers for her million bucks
. The idea was a disaster and it was that season which really marked the start of decline for the show and has never recovered. It was the season the producers decided that judges were more important than talent, forgetting of course the original lineup of the show had two relative unknowns and a has been. All you do when you spend $45M on judges like Idol is have $45M less to give yourself because the same number of people are going to watch regardless of who is judging. They are too scared to give it a chance though.
Anyway, Dancing With The Stars has added a fourth judge and it is Julianne Hough. With none of the projects she left the show for actually doing any good and with the prospects of getting any gig that requires her to work less and that pays more than DWTS doubtful, Julianne will be a judge and Maksim is probably thrilled he left the show. Julianne will not recuse herself when it comes to Derek's scores, but will spontaneously run over and dance with him after every routine and of course pick out random women in the audience for him to have sex with after the show.
